“After I began working towards the more durable Arnold poses just like the three-quarter again double biceps for instance, it appears to be like very simple to do when Arnold does it. Whenever you truly attempt to do it your self, it’s way more troublesome,” he confessed. “So I truly slowed down the video to see how he’s transitioning into this pose and what he’s doing together with his arms. Are his legs transferring? It took me a number of days of repeating doing this and recording myself to good that transition myself.”
