If anyone knows what it takes to get big in the gym, it’s Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The former governor of California might be a few decades removed from winning the Mr. Olympia and killing the Predator, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting ripped.
In fact, Schwarzenegger is looking bigger than ever—he’s always working out, whether it’s at the classic Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach, riding his bike on the boardwalk, or pumping iron at some random hotel gym. The action star never takes a day off.
Here are Schwarzenegger’s top workout moments from Instagram.

4. Where it all began:
Arnold isn’t just using Muscle Beach for a gym session. He’s also using it as inspiration for a new television show, Pump. Set in 1973, the series will be “loosely” based on Schwarzenegger’s life and the time he spent out at the Gold’s Venice Beach gym.

2. Arnold jumps from machine to machine (to machine) without breaking a sweat:
Someone on reddit asked what it was like for me to train in hotel gyms or other unfamiliar gyms on the road. The answer is: just like it is for you. There is no waiting to train until you have perfect circumstances. I improvise with whatever is available. I walk in and my only rule is to keep moving, for a pump and cardio at the same time. Rest as little as possible. After an hour, you will feel fantastic and your muscles won't know what hit them.
