Arnold Schwarzenegger Mentions Sergio Oliva Training with Bob Gajda in Chicago 1969

Building your dream body is about more than what you do in the gym. It’s about what you do in your mind—how you visualize your success and envision your legacy. Arnold Schwarzenegger pictured himself as a champion bodybuilder, and he built a blueprint to become just that. Whether you want to shred for a competition or lose weight for life, Arnold’s Blueprint to Cut will help you succeed.

Arnold Schwarzenegger emphasizes the importance of having a vision, and concentrating every hour of the day to reaching the goals of his vision. The video Blueprint to Cut is post on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s official YouTube channel.

In an interview with Cory Gregory, Co-Founder of MusclePharm, Arnold mentions pushing to multiple sets in 1969 when Sergio Oliva trained with former bodybuilder and kinesiotherapist Bob Gajda.

In 1966, Bob Gajda became the only man to win the three top bodybuilding competitions in the world — Mr. USA, Mr. America and Mr. Universe. Gajda achieved this by using the Peripheral Heart Action system of circuit training that he designed and developed. Gajda worked out and trained with many athletes and bodybuilders, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sergio Oliva. He was popular with the Chicago Bears players around the time that the Chicago Bears won Super Bowl XX.

Bob Gajda had specialized training facilities in Lombard, Illinois in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In the 1990s Gajda had a kinesiotherapy facility at Forest Grove Athletic Club (later known as Midtown Athletic Club/Palatine) and later and independent facility on Northwest Highway in Palatine, Illinois.

Sergio Oliva moved to Chicago in 1963 after escaping to the American consulate to gain political asylum at the time he was representing Cuba in the 1962 Central American and Caribbean Games in Kingston, Jamaica.

Oliva won the Mr. Olympia title in 1967, 1968, and 1969. He won several competitions in the 1970s and also utilized the High Intensity Training (HIT) system of Nautilus training equipment founder Arthur Jones. Oliva also worked as a Chicago police officer for 25 years.
