Arnold Schwarzenegger Has Changed Up His Workout Routine Because Of His 'Shot Knees'

It comes to all of us someday, the moment we realise we can't quite do the strenuous tasks we used to. Now, at the age of 71-years-young, Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted he's had to change up his workout routine.

The Terminator actor talked about his switch-up in an interview with Men's Health. Apparently, squats, and heavy leg exercises, are gone because his 'knees are shot'.

He said: "Squatting and all those kind of like heavy leg exercises, I can't do anymore. My knees are shot. I have to protect my knees because I want to go skiing."

He explained he's not giving up on leg-day all together, though, and cycling is more his thing these days.

"I do mostly bicycling, so that's why I want to bicycle all over the world. When I travel, I get around in the bicycle," he added.

"When I go shopping or something, I go on the bicycle, because then you can exercise in the legs and you see the town in a totally different way."

To be fair, the seven-times Mr Olympia hasn't just put a lot of strain on his body through years of exercise and bodybuilding, but he's also had his fair share of painful issues, He's had shoulder, hip and knee surgery.

But even with these setbacks Arnie won't give up training and always finds a way round it.

He said: "The machines that you have today, I wish that I could have used them in addition to what I did, because they're really amazing (what has happened with the gym equipment business).

"A guy like myself who had shoulder surgery, hip surgery, knee surgery - they can always find an exercise around the injury that I could do. So, I cannot do dumbbell lateral raises anymore, but I can go and find the machine that does exactly the same thing and I have no pain."

Knee's shot or not, it's amazing Arnie is in great shape and we hope we look like that in our seventies.
