T-800 Model 101
Played by: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Movie: The Terminator, 1984
Dossier: Before he turned heroic in later installments, Schwarzenegger’s musclebound robotic villain tried to hunt down Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) to stop her from giving birth to John Connor—the man who would lead the resistance against the machines. Schwarzenegger’s days as a champion bodybuilder made him perfect for the part—so intimidating, in fact, that he only needed a few lines and a handful of menacing stares to immediately become one of the most memorable movie villains of all time. The Terminator had his hands on some humongous guns in the film, but he did just as much work with his jumbo biceps. Check out Arnold’s daily workout and watch how he bulks up and stays in shape.
