Arnold Schwarzenegger Shows His Gym & Fridge | Gym & Fridge | Men’s Health


(knocking) – [Host] Hey Arnie, we’re here
to see your gym and fridge. (knocking) (rock music) – What do you want? (rock music) – [Host] All right Arnold, we’re here to see your fridge, you ready? Let’s do it. – What is it exactly that you want to see in the fridge? You just want to see the food? Or do you want to bust me because I’m not 100% vegan? (siren wails) What is it that you’re up to? Follow me. So anyway, this is the
refrigerator in my office. We have here fruits, we have vegetables, we have one of my favorite
things that when it gets hot, I have watermelons, cut-up watermelons. We have, of course, the
Radler, which is a German drink a combination of lemonade and beer. I love it. (laughs) Most people don’t know this, but this is my secret protein drink. I’m telling you one, okay. This is between us. Okay, so here we go with the protein. You wanted to see how our protein is made? It’s nothing special about it. I just put in a little
bit of this almond milk, not much, just a little bit. And those are for muscle soreness and sometimes bone soreness. Put a little bit of that in there. Then you go and you put the banana in. (upbeat music) I don’t do it always with the clean hands where I touch every dumbell and barbell and machine that other
people have already touched. This is just to get
the immune system going and to really always,
you have to fight back. Now there’s an egg, a raw
egg that you put in there. Well actually, I like
to put in the whole egg. (blender spinning) Now, this drink, literally
you could serve at any bar. Health bar or any other bar. I sometimes put in there Schnapps, I sometimes put in there Tequila, so it just gives a little extra flavor. – [Host] What does your
diet look like these days? – Well, I am as you can
see, I’m health conscious. I was not always health conscious because when I was young,
you know you get away with a lot of things, a little bit from that. Now I eat more, you know, like oatmeal, and greens, and
vegetables, and healthy foods. Stay away more from the meats
and more from animal products, and animal proteins, because
there was this misconception that’s the only way you get
big and strong, so now I backed off that and, um, I feel much better after eating more greens. – [Host] Do you cook at all? – Yeah, of course. My favorite thing to cook is a steak. A lot of times my
bodybuilding friends come over to my kitchen or come
over here to this office and they will of course
eat the delicious food because they all want to look like me. It’s never gonna happen. (laughs) I love that. Anyway, – [Host] What kind of snacks do you eat? Ya know, during the day I will
make a little protein drink of course, because I think it is just the best, ya know, if you
have a lot of proteins. I mix it with, uh, some of the
milk here, and sometimes, uh, juices, and then sometimes
I have energy drinks also so it really depends what
kind of a mood that I am in and if I’m tired or not,
because our energy drink is really great when you’re tired. – [Host] Do you drink cow’s milk? – I would say that I hate cow’s milk. I drink almond milk. It is much better. – [Host] What other foods do you hate? – Um, I don’t really
hate much of anything. I just stay away from it
because of health reasons, but I mean I always was
called the garbage disposal, because I was never sick
and tired of anything. I mean anything. As a matter of fact I
would go to restaurants and I would say to “people
make me an omelet”, and they say “what do you want in the omelet?” and I said, “anything
that’s in the kitchen sink “or anything that you can
find on the kitchen floor. “Just scrape it up and put it
in there and I would love it”, and that’s exactly what they did. – [Host] Have you ever tried a fad diet like Keto or intermittent fasting? – When I started film, I didn’t have time for fad diets or anything like that. I have to go and go on a real
serious kind of a regimen. I work out harder, I do more
cardiovascular training, and I watch much more what I eat, so I cut out just simply
all the sugar products, and I cut out all the white bread. – [Host] Do you take any supplements? – Yeah I take supplements,
I take multivitamins, and I take, uh, you know, uh, everything that the body needs, but like I said they’re called supplements to
supplement of what you eat, so the key thing is not
to rely on the supplements as much as you rely on good food. Natural food, a lot of
greens, a lot of fruits, and a lot of really good proteins. – [Host] Does Arnold
ever have a cheat day? – Cheat days come up quite frequently. I just remember that even three days before the Mr. Olympia competition in 1970 after training we would
go to the House of Pies. The key thing is always
to remember that for every calorie you take in,
you have to burn it off. No one else is gonna do it for you. You’ve got to do it. (upbeat music) – [Host] How often do you work out? – Um, I workout everyday. I workout in the morning
from around 7:00 to 7:45 and then I try to bicycle every morning for around 45 minutes, and then many times I go back at night, and I work
out at home in my home gym. – [Host] What do you
consider an intense workout? – What I am doing right now is not what I consider an intense workout. This is kind of a light
Mickey Mouse workout because we are doing
the filming right now so I just go through the
motions, but I’m not really training that heavy anymore
because, uh, after my heart surgery I was advised
not to train heavy and not to do anymore going for three
reps and heaviest weight and all this stuff, so I do more kind of lighter weights and more reps. – [Host] Do you still chase the pump? – The pump is always
out there and you always have to chase after it, yes. – [Host] What’s the best
thing you’ve learned throughout your career? – When you become a world
champion in bodybuilding, and you um, reach your goal like I did after winning 13 world
championship titles. Seven of them is Mr. Olympia,
five of them is Mr. Universe, Mr. International, and all of
those kind of competitions. Then it is important to
inspire others, because I recognize that I did
not go the way I am today. I did not reach this point
in bodybuilding, or in anything else, without
inspiration of so many people. If it is in bodybuilding,
Reg Park or Steve Reeves, ya know and in public
service, Ronald Regan or Mother Teresa, Mohammad
Ali, who was one of the most generous and most giving persons that inspired me to give
something back to the community. There’s all these people
inspiring so to me it’s important to hang on that wall
and to have other people look up there and say “Look
what this guy has accomplished. “He came over here from
Austria with absolutely nothing “and, uh, he became the world
champion in bodybuilding, “and he became the
highest paid movie actor, “and the leading man, and
then he got into politics. “Look at what he’s accomplished “because of hard work and
because of a lot of help.” And so I am, I want to be an
inspiration to so many others. – [Host] All right, now it’s time for our Rapid Fire questions. 7:00 a.m. workout or 7:00 p.m. workout? – 7:00 a.m. usually – [Host] Squat or deadlift? – When you say squat or
deadlift it’s the same thing as saying drinking or eating. I mean I think you need both, right? It’s a difficult, it’s a crazy question. You should try and work at the whole body minimum of three times a week. – [Host] Crossfit, yay or nay? – I think it’s good done the right way. – [Host] Dumbbells or kettle bells? – It makes no difference
because the muscle doesn’t see what you are
holding in your hands. – [Host] Run on a treadmill
or in the great outdoors? – Both. – [Host] Biggest compliment –
jacked, ripped, swole, or cut? – Cut. – [Host] If you could workout
with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be? – I would like to workout
with Eugen Sandow, because he was one of my idols. He was the first bodybuilder
that also was a Strong Man. I think that, uh, he’s
a remarkable human being and a remarkable athlete and Strong Man. – [Host] You know a lot of
celebrities on Gym and Fridge say you’re their ultimate workout partner. What do you say to that? – I’m here in Gold’s Gym every morning. If you want to workout come on down and well have a good time. All right, listen guys, I gotta get back to my workout, okay? The time for fooling around
is over, so, over there is the exit, and don’t
say “I’ll be back” okay? (upbeat music)

  1. Arnold is a great athlete, nice to talk, average movie actor even though his movies made millions, and he was the worse governor.

  2. No-one gonna talk about how a guy that rich asked for a an omlet to be made from shit out of the sink and kitchen floor? chatting bs

  3. 08:37, in the background, how not to do lats. Arnold is full of such great advice, minus the alcohol in your shakes. Alcohol slows down the absorption of protein into the body.

  4. This title is misleading….he doesn't show his Gym (it just shows him working out at Gold's Gym) last I heard he didn't own Gold's gym.

  5. When I was 10 years old (1991) I would get a book from the library called 'training with Arnold'. Totally was a fan! Now 28 years later I see him and I still think he is Baus!!

  6. I just got home from my own workout. I’m 59 and in the best muscular shape of my life. Arnold has always been a sports hero of mine. Would love to workout with him just once.

  7. haha Love Arnold 🙂 "Watermelons" I love how real and laid back he is, but seriously seems like a good guy. Also love how he said if anyone wants to work out with him, he's at that gym every morning lol.

  8. I love mister health conscious california eco friendly moron wasting electric having the refrigerator door open. the entire time he is a does not care loser.

  9. 7:10 he mentioned Mohamed ali and Reagan as his inspirations. You can take the nazi out of the son but you cant take the nazi out of a son of a nazi.

  10. Did the fridge have any "juice" in it?  Almost forty years ago a body builder I knew idolized this fake, everybody else was doing 'roids except Arnold who was all natural.  Years later what comes out…Arnold used steroids too.  The body builder was doing 'roids from Mexico and came down with Hep C..  In the 80's professional sports leaders and Arnold used steroids.  'Nuf said.

  11. Arnold is a complete sellout. This should’ve been obvious decades ago when he stated that he would do whatever it takes to succeed and then proceeds to succeed in homosexual dominated environments. Why is Arnold promoting vegan when he wrote that bill pearl couldn’t convince him to go vegetarian? More importantly, why are the elites paying schwarzengreenburg to promote the vegan diet? Could it have something to do with vegans being incredibly weak and docile?

  12. Saw a clip of him in some sort of documentary about veganism and thought that this would be him preaching about veganism and demonizing anyone who eats meat. Was pleasantly surprised! Arnold is always Arnold.

  13. my man Arnie, you still look great, speak smart… you have inspired me a lot in gym, business and overall life. Your stoic worklife and cocky and cool public image was a great inspiration!
    Thank you from Latvia, Mr Schwarznegger!

  15. The Man was at Bragg one year when we happened to be doing force on force with an ODA dive team. It was surreal. Must of been 50 highly trained dudes in all, smiling like school girls as he spoke. There is so much more to that man than people know. His books are great reads. In the terminator he was cast as Reece and…get this, OJ was cast as the terminator!!
    I wanted him to say a line from Commando to the army guys, but I’m sure he had other things on his mind. Anyone guess the line I’m thinking of?

  16. Arnold is such a giant troll no hate but “I like to stay away from animal products” then proceeds to say “my favorite food to cook is steak”

  17. I love when he says " I'm nit fully vegan…..yet. There are plenty of plant based body builders out there but Arnold has a voice that could really do some damage Within the fitness community. I think Arnold can get through to a lot of people that you don't need animal product in your diet for any type of physique goals or strength gains.
