How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Height

5ft 11.5in (182 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1.5in (187 cm)
Austrian actor, bodybuilder and politician best known for starring in movies such as The Terminator, Predator, True Lies and Total Recall.
I'm 6'2". I've heard rumors that I'm really much shorter in real life - like 5'6" or something like that - which is ridiculous. I can assure you this is not the case. People look up to me, and not just because I do a lot of work in the community. I mean, most people really LOOK UP to me.
Many people who have met him in his early career have said he was between 6ft 1 and 2, although a genuine 6ft 3 man like Kevin Sorbo thought differently, saying with a straight face: "Arnold Schwarzenegger's about 5-11...yeah he says he's Six Three". This estimation is shared by respected actor Richard E. Grant who said "I meet the financial and physical 'muscle' of Tinsletown, in the persons of Mr Stallone and Mr Schwarzeneger...both of whom are substantially shorter than six foot."
Jon Meade said Arnie told him in a 1980 interview he was "6ft 1.5" and bodybuilder Vince Basille gave an insight into a young Arnie's height in an email to me, in which he described how he personally measured Arnie in 1969 at 6ft 1.5. Arnold has also recently said that he was "6ft 1 and 3/4" but now has shrunk to 6ft 1, as measured by his daughter and in 2013 mentioned he was down to a worrying 6ft 1/2 inch.

Peter Boyle is 6'2 and in a movie with Arnold, where Arnold plays a Russian spy and Peter Boyle plays an american detective, when they're talking to each other Alnold is looking up to Peter Boyle. So Arnold Swasenneger is about 5'11.5
mister_lennon said on 24/Mar/17
6'3 is too much for arnold. Not even 6'2. Maximum, a solid 6'1 at peak.

6'3.5" peak. 6'0.75 now.


Er.... no. Nobody would ever say that, thanks.

Hey Rob, do you think it's possible that 6'1.5" bodybuilder measurement for Arnie was in sneakers (which would add about an inch?) I was in sports in my teens, and anytime I went in for a physical, not ONCE was I ever asked to remove my tennis shoes. That would've made Arnie about 6'0.5" peak height barefoot..??
Editor Rob: it is possible Arnie did the old bust a gut height measurement to hit 6ft 1.5, but I don't think it was in sneakers.

This is probaly an ok height for hes probaly a weak 5ft 11 at night.

Jeff Bridges looked between 6'0 and 6'1 in King Kong (1976). Definitely did not look 6'2.
John Davis said on 21/Mar/17
He doesn't look that much taller than Frank Zane who's 5ft 9
AlexItaly said on 21/Mar/17
Jervis it's a common pratice to downgrade anybody whose height can be safely related to Arnold. I think anything under 186 is trolling but still I can talk with people saying he was 185 (6'1). That's my limit, seriously. Let's face feeding the trolls is simply useless.
Adijos said on 21/Mar/17
Peak: 6'2" (188 cm)
Now: 6' (183 cm)
jervis said on 21/Mar/17
Kurtz,you seem very certain Jeff Bridges was 6ft in his youth and now,have you any evidence of this claim?Bridges looked close to 6ft2 next to 6ft3.5 Clint Eastwood and 6ft4 George Kennedy.
Canson said on 21/Mar/17
Peak height 184cm-185cm
Today his height is around 179-180
RisingForce said on 20/Mar/17
Jai Courtney is the 6'0.75" Rob gives him, Arnold could still look near 6 feet in comparison to him in 2015: Click Here Courtney had roughly 1.5" on Bruce Willis in 2013. Oddly, Arnold could also still look close to Jason Clarke who Rob has 6'1": Click Here but he could look 5'11.5" max with 5'10" J.K. Simmons: Click Here and he'd only look 5'11.5" if Stallone was still a weak 5'9": Click Here But since I think Stallone was 5'8.5" max by this time, Arnold looks more 5'11" flat. I guess his varying height is a mix of posture and Arnold sometimes wearing boots with pretty big heels. Does it look like he's lost any more height in these last couple of years?

Danimal said on 20/Mar/17
How tall do you think he is today in 2017 at 70 years old? I don't seem him above 5'10.5" today.

I'd have to see good comparisons(full body shots) of Arnold in 2017 among others with known heights before I could guess since it's been almost 2 years so he could have easily shrunk more since Terminator Genisys. Even though my estimate was 5'11.5", I had seen him look as short as 5'10.75" and I could see closer to 5'11" flat as possible.
themthen said on 20/Mar/17
I watched Arnold classical music, but Cédric McMillan is a stoop. Arnold wore shoes. There will be usually heels approximately 3cm. Cedric was a bare foot.
Arnold looked high 2cm.
This meaning expects that the shoes of Arnold have the heel of 5cm - 7cm.
Cedric is 185cm. When 185cm equalled Arnold with a stoop, I rise. Because Arnold is 182cm. The bare foot of Arnold is 182cm.
There would be the peak of Arnold more than 185cm.

However, is it around 183cm when I look at the site of this Russian? There are not many Haney and differences.

few yrs back for the truth arnie just shrunk whatever his peak height was. So how the hell you are 6 f and arnie is taller
@ alexitaly
pleez we can't use still jeff bridges card cause we never measured him so accurate for to use him for 1 inches range parameter or even less!!!

RisingForce said on 11/Mar/17
Has he lost more height since the last Terminator since I haven't really seen a good comparison since that time, but I'd have said 5'11.5" was right then, a height I believe he was down to by the Expendables 2 and Last Stand in 2012-2013. At his peak, he often looked tall enough for me to believe his claim of 6'1.75" (around noon) and Basille's 6'1.5" evening measurement, but 185-186 cm is arguable too. Anything below 184 cm peak is trolling.

How tall do you think he is today in 2017 at 70 years old? I don't seem him above 5'10.5" today.

Clip with Cedric Mcmillan Bodybuilder...Cedric is 6 feet 1, so Arnold should at least get the nod of 5 feet 11 3/4 inchs to 6 foot! He doesn't give the best posture at all times!
AlexItaly said on 18/Mar/17
Arnold was on level with 6'1.5 Bridges at his prime, a little taller than 6'1 Weathers and 2 inches shorter than weak 6'4 Ferrigno. So it is pretty clear he was a weak 6'2 at 187 and maybe 186 at night. Now he has shrunk, it is evident, and must be around 182. This the truth and is pretty much a no brainer. All the hype about his height is made up by haters.

Is there any chance you could update the picture of Arnold at the top of the page?It's not the most flattering pic and there are so many
better ones out there of when he was in his prime.

Same with Sly, I know there are tons of better ones.

Great site... Thanks Rob!

Bridges was a sokid 6'1 guy at peak. Just as arnold.
Ian C said on 14/Mar/17
Well, Gregory, I do respect anyone who becomes a movie star, because that is a difficult thing to do, and there is no denying Arnold's achievements in that regard. He is also said to be a nice man, which is admirable right there. But watching him try to approximate human speech in a movie is painful. There really is no other movie actor I can think of who is consistently as bad. John Wayne, for example, was limited to playing the same character over and over, but it was an appealing character and he did it well. When you watch Wayne do his standard hero guy you never get the impression that it's just a man reciting dialogue. But you always do with Arnold. He's like a man who can't quite hit any notes singing a song. You can tell what he means, but it's still terrible.

Arnold always looks self-conscious, even in still photographs. He even looked ill at ease when he was doing posing routines as a bodybuilder. My own guess, admittedly whimsical, is that if your job involves looking at yourself in the mirror you develop an unhealthy inability to stop thinking about yourself long enough to interact normally and comfortably with anyone else. Notice, for example, how strained and uncomfortable Melania Trump always looks. She's obsessed with how she looks, and can't just shuck the habit of always thinking about her appearance. Well that's what Arnold is like.

There is no way he is shorter than 5ft11 now!!!!!
Anything calling him under 6ft peak is also b.s....

Arnies peak was at least 6ft1 and more like 6ft1.5 in my opinion.
His height now judging by recent pictures at events against other celebrities looks about 5ft11.75
John said on 13/Mar/17
Your uncle wears lifts.
Don said on 13/Mar/17
My uncle was on a security detail for him when he visited my uncles city to give a speech. He has always claimed Arnold is about 5'9. My uncle is 6'2. He saw him another time and He appeared taller. He had some height enhancing boots, my uncle claimed the thickness of the soles were "laughable".

I have to say, my uncle is a square, even by police standards. I would take his word over a major majority. Even if I just knew him and he wasn't my uncle.

But you can take it for what you will.
Lak said on 13/Mar/17
Rob did you see arnold with Cédric McMillan , Cédric is listed 185cm on Google ,who do you think is taller , PS arnie has a footwrear adv but bas also a bad posture , and do you think Cédric is a réal 185cm guy

Editor Rob: from looking on google, he's not that far under arnold when barefoot with big arnie in shoes...I don't know if a full 6ft 1 though, but certainly over six foot.
Ian C said on 12/Mar/17
Get a load of how Arnold is shot in the movie Escape Plan. Almost exclusively from the chest up. You see no more of Arnold in that movie than you see of a television news anchor reading the news from behind a desk. Arnold has a fight scene that is edited so that you can't see his body. It's as if he were Franklin Roosevelt in 1936, and steps were being taken to conceal that he was a paraplegic.

Why am I so (morbidly and maliciously) interested in Arnold's physical decrepitude? Part of it is a nasty schadenfreude where I'm delighted that a man who once so physically superior has now been ruined by age, but it's also the product of a visceral dislike of bodybuilding, in which men who are already physically superior deliberately torture their bodies to produce a grotesquely unnatural appearance that is essentially unhealthy, and all for the sake of a strange and slightly crazy vanity.

And besides, Arnold Schwarzenegger was always an amateurishly inept actor, who never read a line of dialogue in a realistic human tone in his life. It annoys me that a man who can't act became a major movie star. It's the same annoyance I feel that Madonna Ciccone was a successful musician.

Just over 6-0 peak. looked 6-2ish in his cowboy boots etc. Today about 5-10.5 imo
grizz said on 10/Mar/17
Jeff Bridges has 1 inch over prime Arnold Click Here
Click Here Even with his strongest posture, Arnold cannot measure up to then 6'1.5 Bridges.
Granted, you cannot see their footwear on these ones.
However...
Look at 0:49 from this video Click Here You can clearly see them from head to toe- Jeff wearing some Converse-styled sneakers, Arnie barefoot - Bridges edges Arnold by almost 1 inch, which means, with 0.5in (my estimate) footwear Arnold was no more than 6'1 at his prime.
Smurfs said on 10/Mar/17
I still say Arnold was 6'1" way back when. But there's no doubting he's dropped enough since then for his height to surprise people. Let's say he's 5'11 now (at best). Combined with poor posture - as he often displays - and his 'bigger than life' image, people are surprised to find he doesn't tower over them. I think what we have here is a fairly significant height loss working with people's preconceived notions. He's a little more than average height.

definitely 5'10 nowadays, and no one loses 3.5 inches in a lifetime, he was never 6ft1.5
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
6'1.5 shoes. 6'0.5 barefoot looks good for his prime height. Maybe he'd be a morning 6'1". today prob is 5'11.
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
Today he may only be 5'11 but prime no way. He was easily at least a strong 6' and I've verified with a cousin who met him that also claimed 6'1". Of course my cousin (my mom's cousin) is much older so I never saw him prime and he may have been a strong 6' or weak 6'1" but nothing less as they were identical

I noticed the sneakers Jeff Bridges was wearing in Stay Hungry when he was talking to a barefoot Arnold had a thin sole, a 2cm sole possibly or even less, Jeff was 1.87m with sneakers on, so Arnold was most likely 1.84-85m, we might also say he was 1.85m,( 6'0.75") in order to round up a bit. Like I said, 1.84-85m could've been close to his real height.

I just watched hodgetwins video they put up today they got arnold up on there phone they noticed it said he was 6,2 and they have meet him took a pic with him Keith hodge was like he's 6,2 not now he said I'm 6,1 and 3 quarters and I think I had a quarter inch on he's ass
MarkB said on 5/Mar/17
Pierre -- that's Boyer Coe, not Ed Corney.
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
Uh he was easily a strong 6'0" in his prime and maybe even a 6'1" guy depending on when he measured. I think 6'1.5 is in shoes but this 5'11" prime stuff no he wasn't maybe today but not back then
Editor Rob: I'm still sure Arnie was a bit taller than Carl Weathers in his prime.

Now Weathers is taller than Arnie...

jay said on 4/Mar/17
He is shorter now poor Arnold but was definitely 6'2" back in this day
----------

Considering he stated on camera during the filming of running man in 1986 that he stands 186cm and Guinness listed him at 185cm in 1982 there is a very strong chance he was not 6'2

He also doesn't look 4 inches taller than ~5'10 Bruno sammartino in the 1970s and looks shorter than George Bush senior on the campaign trail in 1987/88

jay said on 4/Mar/17
I would believe the peak height of 6'2" but no taller, he has shrunk now around the 6'0" mark
Bob said on 4/Mar/17
I stood next to him on numerous occasions in the late 1970s. My guess is that he was about 6'1". I doubt if I could be off by more than an inch, so I find claims that he was 6'3" or 5'10" to both be out of the question.

@ Rampage--Clover
I find believing Arnie a flat 5ft11 equally hard to swallow! No apologies necessary in my opinion! He's got to still be a good 5ft11.5 - 5ft11.75! The picture above does him no favours whatsoever. It should be flushed down the toilet. I thought it was crap as soon as I saw it!
Criss said on 2/Mar/17
Hi guys,
I have some pics for you and I leave you judge them. If Rob has time, he can comment.

I can say that Arnold comparing to 6.2 people looks shorter (of course depends on what kind of shoes they wear and if they are really 6.2)
Example:
Ronny Cox (6ft 2in total recall)

Bush senior (6ft 2in)

Or shorter than Lou Ferrigno (6ft 4in)

Taller than 5ft 11in.5 Robert Patrick:

These are few examples I can give you. I have more.


Berta opinion is a very balanced one and I agree that he is not over 187 or under 185.

He used to hold his own opposite 6ft4 guys and could pull off 6ft2 at times. So many of these idiots just downgrading him for no good reason...I think 6ft1 flat peak is underselling him as is 5ft11 flat....I'm sorry.

In Stay Hungry there is a clear full-body shot of a barefoot Arnold standing next to Jeff Bridges who is wearing shoes. Arnold is barely shorter than Jeff, who is 6'1" and would be 6'2" or more in shoes. Thus we can conclude that Arnold was indeed around 6'1" in his youth.

You can tell just by looking at Arnold's proportions today that his torso is collapsing into itself, his arms and legs look too long for his body.
You're absolutely right, look in this pic how longe are his armes comparing to his body

josh jeffords said on 26/Feb/17
Not sure if I posted here before but some pretty fun claims on here.
Anything from an average Arnie to obvious retouched and fake photos making him look even bigger.
Everybody take a breath he competed and performed "Barefoot" there is no way he was anything less than 6 1 prime.
Next he has shrunk almost disturbingly height and size due to over training and then not at all.
The guy is very old two decades past 50 even Sean C, Moore and Brosnan dropped noticeably after 60.
He looks as listed now last I saw, do not compare to sly or mel they get taller with age dubiously so...
The fact is he is over 5 10 now and was never over 6 2 the most likely is exactly as listed.
firecracker said on 25/Feb/17
serious people know he was never 6'1.5"(187cm). Pure fake. 6'1.5" is just an inch and half shorter than 6'3". ahahah, you really don't know how tall is a legit 6'3" (190cm). he looked clearly taller than most bodybuilders of his era (excluding lou ferrigno) because most of them were 5'5"-5'8"(165-173cm). Arnold schwarzenegger was max 5'11.5"(182cm) barefoot, nothing more. And today he struggles with 5'10"(177cm)

Click Here - Click Here - Click Here

At least 50% of people are actually 2 inches shorter than their claimed height. arnold claimed 6'1.5"(187cm) but he was 5'11.5"(182cm). lou ferrigno claimed a fake 6'4"(193cm), but he was 6'2"(188cm). Stallone claimed a fake 5'9"(175cm), but he was 5'7"(170cm). There is a fake world and a real world.
berta said on 24/Feb/17
any cliams that he was under 184 is ridiculous and also claims 188+ its safe to say he was somewhere in the 184,5-187 range with biggest chanse that he was somewhere in the 185,5-186 range

Lak,

I Said 5'11" I knew I would be Close. Arnold would give a taller impression b/c he arms were longer ( Long in general for his Height) whereas your arms seem a bit stubber. ( Henry Cavil).

Big arnie fan but the man was never 6 foot imo. There are just too many 5'10 claims going all the way back to the 80s. Also speculation of risers in his boots goes back to the 80s as well. No one ever claimed he was anywhere around 5'6.

At best I'll go 5'11.5 peak, 5'10.5 current.

Well he's clearly not 5'11.5 and his peak could not have been 6'1.5. I saw a picture of him with Bush and looked like max an inch taller. Bush is 5'9 maybe shorter now cause he's older. This would put Arnold at 5'10. He's really quite a average height guy don't know why he's so insecure because of his height. He was even taller than average at his peak at 6 feet so no need to lie about his height. Maybe that's why he got into bodybuilding like most bodybuilders do. They are insecure about themselves, their height and want to look bigger. They get bigger but still feel small so they don't ever stop. Also those drugs he used could have made him loose 2 inches cause nobody will lose 2 inches by naturally aging max 1 inch in that case. Trust me I know. Also saw a picture with Jimmy Fallon and him. Fallon looked at least 1 inch taller. And Fallon is 5'10.5 which would put arnold at 5'9.5. But I'm nice guy so I would say he's 5'10 probably 5'9.5 right before beddy time.

He's still at least 5'11, and definitely at least 6'1 peak.

That's because everyone expects Arnold to be a giant rather than just a (slightly) taller than average man.
Baks89 said on 13/Feb/17
My dad is 185cms 6'1 in the evenig and meet Arnold in the 70s when he came to Australia. He said he and Arnold were exactly the same height. So 186cms is the most i can see him being. The 6'1.75/187cms wouldve been an early morning measurement

Paul said on 13/Feb/17
I think you've a point here. Arnold is the kind of guy who hates anything slowing him down, and he's spoken in past interviews about his disgust of ageing. He's had many injuries and operations over the years, and rarely spoken about them. The guy even tried to keep his heart surgery secret from people closest to him.

Ian C said on 12/Feb/17
Yet more evidence that Arnold has bad legs: He recently appeared on a late night talk show, and he was wearing one of those plastic boot casts on one of his feet, and claiming that he had suffered an unspecified injury while working out. I suspect that he is badly arthritic (because he's on the cusp of 70) and can't bear to admit that he is now an old man with an old man's health problems. So he's trying to camouflage his mobility problems by claiming an injury.
Paul said on 13/Feb/17
I can't believe you guys are so fiercely determined over the matter of 2cm in the height of a man you have never even seen in real life. Let's face it, none of you KNOW. This is your opinion, and you all need to stop telling each other you're wrong, I'm right, he's this exact height to a quarter cm. Loosen up.

Arnold was obviously taller than Bush Jr. back then and here's a 2002 video where you see Bruce Willis, who is said to be at least 5'11" and certainly no shorter than Bush: Click Here (Go to around 10:34) This is significant because Arnold was always noticeably taller than Bruce until The Expendables when the difference started getting much smaller. Here's an example from December 2006 Click Here Click Here I still believe Arnold's measurement was the best guess, but 6'1" flat is also possible, though anything less than 6'0.5" peak is crazy, especially since he was still at least 6 feet until around the time he returned to acting. His height loss has been quite remarkable, though and he was already no more than 5'11.5" a few years ago, so it wouldn't surprise me if he's closer to 5'11" flat by this point, though I haven't seen any comparisons since Terminator 5 and Expendables 3.
Peter 179cm said on 9/Feb/17
He looks ~1nch taller than Bush in those photos,look at their eyelevels.You can argue 182-183cm (5'11.75-6'0) 10 years ago but has rapidly gone down these days-i wouldn't be surprised if Arnie is shorter than Bush NOW but not much...Maybe about a cm.

Check out Arnold in the movie Maggie, which he made when he was 67. Almost all the shots of Arnold are taken from mid-chest up, which is ironic, since Arnold's career and appeal are based almost entirely on his physique. I suspect that he is crippled and cannot move for more than a few seconds without giving this away.

I think its pretty clear he's hovering around the 5'11 mark at the minute. He can look lower than this at times but I think if he busted a gut he'd just about scrape a flat 5'11 in the early afternoon.

He seemed to hold his height pretty well until his mid 50's, around the time of Terminator 3 when he still looked a very solid 6 footer.

When he became governor he aged about 30-40 years in a very short time. His hair thinned, his skin began to wrinkle and his spine seemed to collapse in on itself. Same thing happened to Bill Clinton when he was in office. Those types of high stress jobs age a man well before his years (including height loss).

Measured? When was Reg measured? Provide your source. I've been a fan of bodybuilding my whole life and I've never ever seen a document stating his MEASURED height. He has been called both 6'1" and 6'2", just like Steve Reeves, but 0 reference to an actual measurement and btw, there are dozens of pics of Arnie and Reg from the late 60's where sometimes they look the same height, sometimes Reg looks taller and sometimes Arnie does, so one pic of them does not prove anything.

Miiiiiiighty_- said on 30/Jan/17
Hard to argue anything over 6'1 for him after seeing the pic of a young Arnold and Boyer Coe ..
He doesn't even look 6'1 there, and that's with shoes in.

Still I'm gonna guess a 6'0.5" to 6'1 prime ( 6'.5" + 1 fake inch = 6'1.5 his "proclaimed" height ? ) but I have never seen any evidence
of him being a barefeet 6'1.5 let alone 6'2 in his prime.

And nowadays 5'11 seems to be the consensus, a friend of mine met him on the Tour de France a few years ago and he was shocked by Arnold's height who he said was "not so tall, only 1m80"
S.J.H said on 30/Jan/17

Very small height difference with Jeff Bridges in the video.The thing is that Bridges wears shoes and Arnie is barefoot.I guess 187 for both.

At the Australian GP, Hamilton made a joke about how he thought that Arnold would be taller.

There cannot be more than a 3.5 inch (very generous) difference between him and 5'7.5 Hamilton, who was wearing nearly flat racing shoes, while Arnold was in sneakers. Vettel is 5'8.5 and was, while leaning slightly, still within 2.5 inches of Arnold. Google for these images.

Arnold needs to be downgraded to 5'11 tops.

2017 181 and a couple mm I think he lost 1,5 cm really fast around 2002-2003 when he did terminator 3. because at that time he said he went upp in the middle of the night and trained for couple hours because he didnt have time to do it during the days.

Lol, how could someone describe a 6ft 1-2 range guy as 5ft 6!!?? Some people seem to constantly downgrade male celebrities heights due to perhaps jealousy or trolling, but in this case, to say someone is 7 to nearly 8 inches shorter than they actually are is ABSURD!!!!
anyonmious said on 27/Jan/17
I agree too, he is only 5'10" nowadays
vin said on 27/Jan/17
How could he lose so much height? Do you think years of heavy overhead lifting compressed his spine?
James said on 27/Jan/17
He's 5'10" now.

As a huge fan of Arnold, I honestly can't see him below 6'1 in his prime. 5'11.5 sounds about right for his current height.
Cole said on 23/Jan/17
He's about 5,11 today I would say 6,1 in he's prime
Cole said on 23/Jan/17
I would say 5"11 today

186.5-187cm evening peak
Theo J said on 23/Jan/17
I saw him up close on the studio backlot in Summer 1996 when he was filming Jingle All The Way. I was an 18 year old at 6 foot, and he really didn't appear any taller. I would guess 6'1 peak and 5'10.5 now
Kurtz said on 22/Jan/17
@dmeyer
indeed he was 6'5" out of the bed
Larry@ said on 21/Jan/17
187 seems very good for peak.Today closer to 182.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/17
Peak: 6ft 1.6in (187.1cm)
Today: 5ft 11.7in (182.2cm)



Done, dusted, not to be discussed further. Everyone get a life
Dmeyer said on 18/Jan/17
Average Guess IS perfect 186cm IS enaugh to claim 188cm as hé was probably 6 FT 2-2,25 out if bed and enaugh to mesure 187cm late morning or just touching haïr , and today about solid 181 looking 179 with poor posture

Average Guess (204 Votes)
Peak: 6ft 1.13in (185.7cm)
Current: 5ft 11.21in (180.9cm)

200 have voted and this is the truth, 185.7 cm peak and 181 cm now. the average score has always right(it is on IMDB too when people voted on movies) and in line with my own guess after studying arnolds height for several years, seen all his movies and looked at thousand and thousand of pictures.
James said on 14/Jan/17
Arnold Schwarzenegger is 5'10".
Johan said on 14/Jan/17
He has at least 2 inches there on that 5'10" guy without factoring in the shoe advantage.

I do think sometimes that he can look sub 6'1" peak. People who say 6'0.5" as a peak height aren't really that crazy. I still think he was 6'1" at peak though.
Heighcritique said on 14/Jan/17
He looks about 6'1" in shoes, so I estimate him at about 6'00" when he stands up straight. At peak over 6'1" is correct as old pictures of him show, and as bodybuilding competitions list him after measuring his height professionally. It is normal that he lost some height due to age. I had an uncle who was about 6'3" peak, and in his 90s he was 6' standing straight barefoot.
berta said on 14/Jan/17
peak 186 is a VERY VERY BIG CHANCE and now no taller than 181 he is 70 years old so i guess 5 cm loss is just littel more than average? average maybe 3,5? the guy have lifted very heavy and steroids on that so 5 cm is very big chanse that he have lost
Pierre said on 14/Jan/17

Junior31,

I think without the Tip toe Arnold would have Dantes still by 1.5"-1.75" also considering Dantes has shoes, albeit small soled shoes. No Way there would be only an inch there.

Dantes 5'10", Arnold 5'11.75".
James said on 13/Jan/17
His height was never measured in 1969, that's just another urban myth.

He was only 6'1" with shoes.
Kurtz said on 13/Jan/17
@jock
I'm not Arnie hater, by no means. I grow up with his movies, i think Arnie was best bb in history and his movies are amazing.
Plus i disagree with people that cut off too much height to Schwarzy and i believe that Arnold was a tall guy that never needed elevator shoes o something like that.
BUT he was never above a genuine 6 1.
My personal opinion is that Arnie was 183/184 cm., not less, not more and this particular height is best for body building and helped him.

I have posted this one before. The Arnold fans cannot come with an explanation so they ignore this picture.
Arnold with 5'10 Rolando Dantes. Bye bye 6'1 claims. Arnold is tip toeing to look taller. Wow he must have
been very sensitive about his height even in those days:

Click Here

Arnold peak height 5'11 max and 5'9.5 these days. He has been wearing lifts practically his whole career.

''Wait a minute Ali!! Arnold was 6'1.5, so your talking nonsese''. Am I ? Let me prove that I am not.
This is what happens when you put Arnold in the same picture as a legit confirmed famous 6'2 guy:

''Wait a minute, sure he is about 3 inches shorter, but Arnold in this picture is not young and in not in his peak''. You
know what? A little secret. George Bush Senior is quite a bit older than Arnold.

''Ok, hmm but wait Ali. Arnold was only like 3-4 inches shorter than 6'5 Ferrigno''. Lou Ferrigno was never 6'5. Weak 6'3.



What? Yea a 5'10 guy in shoes to a 6'1 guy barefoot will look EXACTLY like that picture. You just reaffirmed he was 6'1 peak
Jock said on 13/Jan/17
Vince Basille is well-known and - grudgingly - respected for his straight talking about the bodybuilding world. The only people who don't accept his Arnold measurement are Arnold haters who wouldn't accept the word of God himself.

Look at where Bush's hips are. That man either had legs that were over 4 foot long or he was on stilts. Something going on there. he moves awkwardly too. Not doubting he was a big fellow though.

Schwarzenegger was never measured as 6'1.5", he just gave them that height.

Ignorance on your part. He WAS measured in 1969 barefoot at night by a man who did not like him (Vince Basille), so stop making things up.

"Ali said: Arnold with 5'10 Rolando Dantes. Bye bye 6'1 claims. Arnold is tip toeing to look taller."

I'm not even remotely convinced that's tip-toeing. That's just the angle of his foot. If he was standing on his toes they'd look scrunched up, and they're flat.

What do you estimate his head length? I have always heard he had a gigantic head, I would like your opinion, Rob.
Editor Rob: not humongous, but he has a solid 10 incher.

anyway the difference in height btwn the rock and Arnie in the years didn't change a lot. Always strong 5/6 cm.

I'm inclined to believe the measurements on the Mr Universe programmes as some of those fellows are no bigger than me, according to various stats, and I'm no greek god. So they don't strike me as being exaggerated.

"Mr Universe" measurements of a 19-year old Arnold, and further down the page as a 20 year old.
Jeff said on 11/Jan/17
Interesting looking through old movie prop sales. Back in the 70s and 80s when magazine articles would go on about Arnold's clothing sizes and chase him up in stores around LA, they mentioned his 34" inside leg, and a 34 or 36" waist - pretty fair a tall and long-limbed fellow as he was. Let's jump to 2000, and if we look here Click Here we see his pants are 38" waist 33" leg. In 2012 Click Here he's wearing a 38" waist and 32" leg.

Steroids stunts growth in children, but I haven't found any studies where steroids actually causes height shrinkage in adults.

@hamburger
i see your point, but loosing one inch @ 55 is unriable
hambubger said on 6/Jan/17
Watching him in the new celebrity apprentice trailer it's clear that Arnold has lost significant height - I would think primarily in his knees and his lower back. I think it's interesting to try to figure out when he lost the height.

His peak of 6'1" or 1.85 was probably up to age 45 or so.
I think he lost 1" by 55 and another 1" by 65 and perhaps even another half an inch since then. I think he'd struggle to reach 5'11" in the morning now.
