In the movie Pumping Iron, Arnold Schwarzenegger has won the Mr.Olympia title how many times before going into competition once again?
Arnold Schwarzenegger was big in the bodybuilding industry by 1975. Before going into the Mr.Olympia competition for the year 1975 that would be held in Pretoria, South Africa, he had already won the title a total of 6 times. He was also on a 5-win streak and seemed unstoppable. The movie Pumping Iron is a documentary that revolves around his triumph in Mr.Olympia once again in 1975.
While Pumping Iron marked a new beginning for Arnold as a Hollywood actor, it also popularized bodybuilding among a wider audience – before that it was seen as a niche sport. This led to more people hitting the gym to “pump iron”.
