When you think about weightlifting you think about a certain Austrian bodybuilder whose name ends with an "-er," and no I'm not talking about Roland Kickinger, even though he's positively jacked himself.
Obviously that was a joke and a bad one — we all know who Arnold Schwarzenegger is and what the man is capable of. He's a true immigrant success story in every sense of the term, crushing it in nearly every career path or venture he's pursued.
What really paved the way for his success, especially in America, was his domination of the bodybuilding world and commitment to exercise. The seven-time Mr. Olympia winner's legacy still inspires people today, which is probably what prompted this reddit user's question to the former governor of California in a recent AskReddit thread.
