“You know, I don’t really know how much he weighs,” replied Schwarzenegger. “I can tell you one thing, that if he would ask me what he should do for fitness, I would just say, ‘Run around yourself three times and you’re going to be in great, great shape,'” he added.
Kimmel gave Schwarzenegger a chance to come up with a sarcastic response when he asked, “So do you think he weighs 215 pounds?” To which Arnold replied, “Yeah, as much as is possible there is no climate change. As much as it is possible that we don’t need to really reduce pollution”.
The former governor of California elaborated that everyone is well-familiar with how the 77-year-old Trump is. So if it makes him happy to claim to be 215 lbs, everyone should let him have his moment. Arnie went on to add, “He’s a little more like 315″. Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s sarcastic take on Trump’s made everyone including Kimmel burst into laughter and hoots.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and his Love for the clean and press exercise
Even at the age of 75, there is no one better than Arnold Schwarzenegger for emphasizing the importance of fitness and muscle gain. The legend’s favorite exercise of all time for weightlifting is the clean and press exercise. For those who aim to gain muscle and focus on bodybuilding, this exercise is known to be the best. The clean and press exercise is performed using a barbell.
The legend shared that this exercise is known as a double-movement compound lift that consists of first pulling and then pushing. Along with that clean and press exercise, deadlifting is also considered the most efficient exercise, as suggested by Schwarzenegger.
However, the thing with the clean and press exercise is that it is complicated and explosive. Therefore, it is not recommended for beginners. It requires time and consistency to master this exercise. It can also be performed using a dumbbell or kettlebell.
The exercise is considered a full-body exercise and works efficiently on a varied range of muscles, including shoulders, glutes, core, hamstrings, and arms. Moreover, it also boosts cardiovascular health and muscle endurance.
