Arnie

Check out this photo shoot for Muscle & Fitness magazine with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the Iron Gym in Santa Monica. In his 66 years Arnie is still in great shape.

Cheers Being a cheerleader is tough. Not only do they have to worry about when to flip or how to land correctly so they do not break a leg, but they have to face constant scrutiny and judging from their peers and fans.
