The 7X Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger is a legend when it comes to bodybuilding and fitness. Even in his 70s, he regularly hits the gym and trains himself. He never shies away from advising and motivating his fans with positivity to prioritize health and fitness. But in real life, he likes to do things differently.
The Terminator star shares four children with his ex-wife, Maria Shriver: Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher. He also has another son with his long-time housemaid, Mildred Patricia Baena, which was actually the reason for his divorce from Shriver.
While all his children have been in the news for various reasons, it could be for their relationship, addiction recovery, or acting career. His youngest son, Christopher, has been away from the spotlight throughout his life.
A graduate of the University of Michigan, Christopher Schwarzenegger fell away from the family of bodybuilders, and because of that, Arnold had to impose strict plans for his son to attain his shape.
As he wanted his son to become a bodybuilder, he implemented a system for Chris’s bodybuilding training. Arnold put his son through an extreme grind with a strict diet and exercise regimen.
But everything that the Afterman actor put his son through, really worked. Christopher was almost unrecognizable after his weight loss, looking absolutely dashing with a trimmed waistline and ripped arm muscles. He resembled his father in his prime bodybuilding days.
What was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son’s routine for weight loss?
Before his graduation, Christopher Schwarzenegger expressed his desire to lose a few pounds to his father, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Due to COVID restrictions, Chris graduated online, but he has started working on his physique since then.
When he succeeded in his training for weight loss, the former Mr. Olympia winner was truly proud of his son. He even penned down his emotions on Chris’ birthday, writing, “Between your boxing classes, your weightlifting classes, your stretching classes, your cycling classes, and on and on, I can’t even keep up with you! I can’t wait to see what you accomplish this year“.

Arnold’s other two sons, Joseph Baena, who is a bodybuilder, and Patrick Schwarzenegger, who is an actor, are both very health-conscious. In fact, Chris’ transformation into how he looks today is not new to the Schwarzenegger family. Arnold’s son-in-law, Chris Pratt, also went down the road of weight loss under Marvel-appointed trainers for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Arnold’s strict workout regime has certainly worked for his son, Christopher Schwarzenegger which also helped him regain his confidence and overcome his self-esteem issues.
