He started weight training at the age of 15 and won the title of Mr. Universe at the age of 20 and subsequently won the title 5 times. In 1977, his autobiography “The education of a body builder” was published and became a big success. He also participated in Olympics in weightlifting and power lifting competitions and won Mr. Olympia title 7 times. (Inspirational Quotes)
