Arnold Schwarzenegger Landed in Military Jail Due to Bodybuilding Enthusiasm


Arnold Schwarzenegger


The former Governor of California got a brief jail time after he sneaked off his military camp in Austria to enter a bodybuilding competition.

Arnold Schwarzenegger revisited his bodybuilding days in a new ESPN Films documentary. The former Governor of California recalled his eagerness to pursue a career in bodybuilding landed him in an Austrian army prison. He was 18 back then.

Arnold got punished when he left the camp without permission to join the Junior Mr. Europe contest in Germany while he was serving a mandated year in the army. The Austria-born actor was later released because the officials felt "uncomfortable."

His dream as a bodybuilder was also disapproved by his parents, but his superiors in the military later on gave their full support for him. They helped him gain muscles by creating a makeshift gym for him and getting the nutritious food he needed.

The "Terminator" star said he always had a clear vision of what he wanted to do including doing movies. When he faced an obstacle, he saw it more of a challenge than a hindrance. "I never saw a 'no' as a 'no.' I always heard 'yes'," he enthused.

His determination to reach whatever his goals were led him to become Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe in the bodybuilding contests, become one of the most successful action actors in Hollywood, and serve in California as the Governor.

His documentary "Arnold's Blueprint" will premiere on September 26.
