Any fans of Arnold Schwarzenegger out there? The guy is getting a little old (like me), but I loved his younger movies. He was such a stud. Speaking of stud, I’m giving away a copy of Pumping Iron on my movie blog. It’s an old documentary about five-time champion Arnold Schwarzenegger defending his Mr. Olympia title back in the day. Pumping Iron is now available for download on digital HD for the first time with rarely seen content and interviews. Continue reading to find out how to enter my sweepstakes.

About Pumping Iron
Everyone knows Arnold Schwarzenegger but do you know the whole story behind the man? From Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach California to the showdown in Pretoria, amateur and professional bodybuilders prepare for the 1975 Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe contests in this part-scripted, part-documentary film. Five-time champion Arnold Schwarzenegger defends his Mr. Olympia title against Serge Nubret and the shy, young, deaf Lou Ferrigno, whose father is his coach; the ruthless champ psyches out the young lion. Sardinian Franco Columbu competes in the lightweight class; at home in Italy he solves a tight parking problem by lifting the car into place. Joe Weider is the marketer; Mike Katz and Ken Waller go for the title of Mr. Universe. Bodybuilding and a celebrity-to-be go mainstream. Special features include:
- Still Pumping
Success in bodybuilding is a mental challenge as well as physical. In these newly recorded interviews, Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about the will power and focus you need to become a champion, and the mental attitude that has shaped his career.
- The Hard Science of Bodybuilding
Arnold Schwarzenegger and top bodybuilders give insights into the sport of bodybuilding and tips for building the body of your dreams.
