Being the best bodybuilder does not mean being the strongest or the biggest. But… was Arnold Schwarzenegger stronger than his partner and friend Lou Ferrigno? We will never know. And we found this photo to show on social networks. There is of course no debate in the titles. Winner of 7 gimps Master Olympia, Ferrigno didn’t even get the title.
He was much taller than Arnold Ferrigno at over 1.90 meters tall and had visibly larger quadriceps, pectorals and arms than his rival. But his lack of definition punished him and he could not compete in proportions and symmetry with the great Schwarzenegger, whose muscular quality was the best in his build.
