Arnold Schwarzenegger Wins Mr. Universe in 1969 (HD) – Back When Bodybuilders Were Actually Admired by Women


What a super sight, as every woman in the hall agreed, as the supermen of Europe got together in Cologne for the international bodybuilding contest. And with what pride the mighty men displayed all the well known muscles, plus a lot that the average man had never heard of. Just imagine the embrace such muscle should accomplish, wasted on a girl, it could put pain to an ox, but who wants to embrace an ox?

OK, OK. Easy there creepy 1960’s announcer dude. We get it. But really, this is a great video. In our opinion, serves as a great representation of the Golden days of bodybuilding.

Mr. Schwarzenegger was a completely unknown figure then. Coe Boyer can also be seen in this footage.
