Schwarzenegger was at his biggest and likely best at the 1974 Mr. Olympia Contest in New York City. I don’t believe that there are many calf shots where Arnold’s calves looked bigger than in this photo. There is a real three dimensional depth to his calves that is brought out by the intense overhead lighting. Schwarzenegger also had relatively small knees which made his calves seem all the bigger. His calves were also well developed and by this I mean he trained them to grow well beyond his natural size. Some bodybuilders have naturally big calves and they only add a couple of inches to their natural size. Schwarzenegger’s calves branch out into all kinds of gnarls as he basically took a lean ecto-mesomorphic calf and added an additional 5 inches.
