    Arnold Schwarzenegger Believes Classic Physique Is The Future Of Bodybuilding

    Arnold Schwarzenegger joined the broadcast on Saturday to share some insight on the future of the sport.

    The Arnold Classic 2021 took place on Saturday. There was plenty of action in the four divisions that took place and Arnold Schwarzenegger joined the broadcast to discuss the event. During the show, the best bodybuilder of all-time made some comments on a division that he had a hand in building.

    Schwarzenegger is one of the legendary figures that built Open bodybuilding to what it is. Despite this, the seven-time Olympia champion believes that Classic Physique is the future and there are risks in the Open division.

    Terrence Ruffin finished with the win in the Classic Physique division at the Arnold Classic after placing second in 2020 behind Alex Cambronero. At this yearís event, the two switched places. This was an exciting race and Schwarzenegger believes this could be the future of bodybuilding.

    ďI WAS NOT ONLY IMPRESSED, I WAS DELIGHTED TO SEE A GREAT PERFORMANCE WHEN IT COMES TO POSING AND THE WAY THEY RELAX THEIR FACES. IT LOOKS SO MUCH MORE APPEALING,Ē ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER SAID ON THE CLASSIC PHYSIQUE DIVISION.

    ďI THINK THIS IS THE DIRECTION WE NEED TO GO, NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT. I THINK THAT YOU REALLY NEED TO BUILD THIS PART OF THE BODYBUILDING SPORTS, SO THAT ITíS EQUAL TO THE OPEN COMPETITION. THAT WAY PEOPLE ALWAYS HAVE CHOICES, AND THEREíS ALWAYS A GOOD THING WITH SPONSORSHIP MONEY, AND GET THEM MORE CASH PRIZES. SO IíM GOING TO WORK ON THAT BECAUSE I THINK THAT ITíS THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO GO.Ē

    Chris Bumstead is currently the biggest name in the division coming off back-to-back Olympia titles. Bumstead will look for three in a row this year but Ruffin will have momentum heading into the biggest competition of the year.

    Nick Walker took home the Menís Open title on Saturday defeating the likes of Iain Valliere and Steve Kuclo. All competitors entered with incredible size and mass. This has become the norm in this division and it could lead to some complications.

    There have been some tragic deaths in the sport of bodybuilding and other speculation on how dangerous the supplements could be that these athletes are taking. This includes comments made by eight-time Olympia champion Ronnie Coleman, who believes diuretics should be banned.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger backed up this notion during the broadcast with some comments on Open bodybuilding.

    ďLETíS NOT FORGET, THEY (CLASSIC PHYSIQUE) DONíT HAVE TO TAKE ALL OF THIS STUFF THAT SOME OF THE OTHER GUYS ARE TAKING TO BE BIGGER.Ē

    ďTHIS IS, I THINK, WHAT THE DANGER IS. IN THIS SPORT, ITíS THE MOST DANGEROUS SPORT IN THE WORLD. IN MMA FIGHTERS, YOUíVE HAD FOUR GUYS DIE IN THE LAST TEN YEARS. IN BODYBUILDING YOUíVE HAD 14 GUYS OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS. SO IT JUST SHOWS YOU HOW DANGEROUS IT IS TO TAKE SOME OF THOSE MEDICATIONS AND THINGS THAT THOSE GUYS TAKE.Ē

    I agree. I attend Olympia and watch classic and physic. The big guys are ridiculous and I don't think it looks good or functional. Just my opinion.

    I hope the sponsors and prize feel the same way. That would be great! I love the massive bodybuilders and am always excited to see them compete still. It is crazy when you see them and meet them; they are actually bigger than you think(some shorter, but humongous!).
    I wish Redcon1 didnít pull his athletes from the Arnold Expo shows..but he had his reasons. I wonder if the international athletes will abide. I guess he will have more in his budget for his athletes though which is good..(lol). He spent quite a lot of money on that show.

    The regular physique guys are getting huge! One of the physique pros was at my gym. He was around 240Lbs ripped with 21Ē arms. His legs looked good to me like a 70ís look. I remember when physique started. It was an absolute joke.
    I prefer the aesthetic look in bodybuilding. Flex Wheeler had two perfect look.

    If Arnold was born in this time frame heíd be a bodybuilder, not classic. He would have pushed the limits further now knowing how big you can get.
