    i dont think anyone knows or cares seeing as he was a bodybuilder and strength means nothing to us; its all about hypertrophy. strength is more of a byproduct of our lifting.

    Arnold was about 6' at 230 or so pounds where as Lou was around 6'4 and close to 275. I'm sure those guys were able to throw up in the area of 400-500 pounds.
    You want a sick leg/lower back exercise? Just pick up after me when I'm done doing drop sets.

    Arnold once claimed to get up a 500 pound bench press, it was in a M&F awhile ago.
    Lifting weights makes me happy.

    I know arnold was 6'2, 240, and ferrigno was 6'5 275. Arnolds arms were said to be 23 inches in pumping iron, and I think i remember reading somewhere that arnold put up 400-500 on bench. I'm sure Lou was in the same range.

    so because he has a big chest he has a big bench?



    right...........bench is all about bar speed, tricep power, delt power, and lat power.........ask any powerlifter.......also think of how the chest muscles actually work......they're contracted by bringing the arms inwards to the body such as in a bear hug..........so how could they be the major mover in a bench press which is an exercise that has the arms locked into place pushing in a straight line? they are just a secondary muscle


    and yeah.........who cares how much he can bench

    Arnold said in his book the encyclopedia of modern day bodybuilding that his best on the benchpress was 450 for 8 reps.
    And he had a 57 inch chest i think.
