Terminator or Manipulator?
The 2 Years Arnold Wants To Erase
A close look at how bodybuilding got derailed from the mainstream:
- Arnold Schwarzenegger's return. Why did Arnold really enter the 1980 Mr. Olympia contest in Sydney, Australia?
- Boycotting the Olympia. Who were the first to take part in an organized boycott after the outcome of the 1981 Olympia was announced a year in advance?
- Did legs even count? How can the judges give the winning nod to a competitor who had next to no separation in his legs while having one leg 30% smaller than the other?

“I have finished reading Randy's latest book, and will say that he has a wonderful way of organizing various inputs to produce an output of a well-ordered, sensible story line, and that his analysis of 1980 Mr. Olympia, and the 1981 Mr. Olympia, convinced me that those two events were not only won by the wrong men (Schwarzenegger and Columbu) but that the other placings also were thereby skewed. I had known before that neither man deserved the win but Randy's presentation is the best I have seen all these later years now that the posing oil has dried.”
“This is required reading for everyone in the bodybuilding community... This reader left the book with the conclusion that bodybuilding's biggest star twice orchestrated a big "fix". Randy hit the nail on the head with his arguments and supporting material.”
