Arnold Schwarzenegger made his Hollywood debut with the 1970 film Hercules In New York. This was only the beginning of his acting career, as he would go on to star in one of the most popular franchises in the world and become one of the biggest actors in the industry. He has always believed in his work and has never backed out due to the fear of failure. The 75-year-old actor is still in full spirit and is set to make his comeback with the upcoming series, Fubar.

However, he continued working out most likely to stay in shape for his acting career. According to a report from The Atlantic, the Commando star does not believe that one can continue to have the same stamina after turning 26. “Once you hit 26, it’s all downhill with the body,” he told his friend Paul Wachter once.

Schwarzenegger further said that one can maintain his shape, but “the peak is over at 26.” He also says that he loved working out and staying in shape. The report also mentions how Schwarzenegger is not afraid of death but is only “pissed off” about it.

As he got older, he was unable to maintain it. The Predator star said, “You get chubby. You get overweight. You get older and older.” And the changes could not be very pleasing, especially for someone who has worked and has been celebrated for having the “best-developed body” for years.
