"That’s the way I wanted to be—ultimately: big.  I wanted to be a big guy.  I didn’t want to be delicate.  I dreamed of big deltoids, big pecs, big thighs, big calves; I wanted every muscle to explode and be huge.  I dreamed about being gigantic."
pg. 17

“I remember the first real workout I had as vividly as if it were last night…I started riding home and fell off my bike. I was so weak I couldn’t make my hands hold on. I had no feeling in my legs: they were noodles. I was numb, my whole body buzzing.
Half a mile farther, I tried to ride it again, fell off again, and then pushed it the rest of the way home. This was my first experience with weight training, and I was crazy for it.”

"Arnold—come on!"
pg.13
