How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Height

5ft 11 (180.3 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1 ½ (186.7 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.

Rob,what are chances that he was 6ft1 3/4 peak ? When he was younger he look 3inches taller than George clooney ,who is almost 5ft 11.

Georges Clooney is probably more 5"9'.5' than 5"11' = here with Sean Penn = Click Here Click Here

Sean Penn /George Harrison 5"10' = Click Here

Georges Clooney /Arnold = Click Here Click Here Click Here the difference here is closer to 2 inches than 3 imo

Hi Houss. You 're a 6'1" guy top off the bed and not a tall man ? Sure for me at 5'10.75, but not for you. Very good height for U !

Arnold compared to a guy with around same height as him had relatively long legs and short bust even young = Click Here (Chet Yorton the left guy in the pic,listed 5"11')
Marius4598 said on 20/Nov/20
Arnold has a very strange body today. It looks like his torso collapsed. His legs still looks long but his torso looks very short and compressed nowdays. At his peak I would say 6’1.5 (taller than reg Park, Dave Draper, ken Waller, mike katz). Today I don’t think he is over 5’11
houss said on 20/Nov/20
J2Frenzy said on 17/Nov/20
@houss are you like 7’0 tall or something? 113kg is a lot to be carrying
Hhh no i'm not a tall man , i'm 182,5cm at night

@Jack nope just a normal single mattress. I checked yesterday morning and if I straighten myself out I’m the same length as it. So 6’3 morning height for me

Click Here Here's Arnold with 5 ft9.5 listed Lynda Carter from 1980.

She claimed she was 5'10". Either way, today's version of Arnold would be barely taller than her (if not the same height) if he stood next to her in 1980.

@J2Frenzy 1,5 cm is not much for daily height loss , i lose 2,5 cm to 3 cm during the day and i weigh 113 kg , and i also this that people with a long torso lose more height
J2Frenzy said on 16/Nov/20
@Jack I have never stretched out on my mattress to check. Are they made to be 1.9m long then?
Jack Daniels said on 16/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy funny when you go to sleep you're just under the normal size of a mattress and when u wake up you taller than this ! For Schwarzy I find 6'2.5" in his autobiography, probably his height in shoes.

Hi J2Frenzy. Well I weigh about 170 lbs. I lose between 1.5 cm and 2 cm during the day, not you?

@Jack Daniels you’re probably a legit 5’10, but you lose a lot for someone that height. Are you particularly heavy for your height?

Hey Rob d'ya think Mr Schwarzy was 6'2" top off the bed when he was young? If he was 6'1.5" in the afternoon well 6'2" was very possible. Personally I'm 5'10 3/4 just after bed, 5'10.5" morning, 5'10" evening, a few mm under 5'10" after a long work day. I consider myself as just average, no more. What height should I claim? Strong 5'10"?
Editor Rob
out of bed I'm sure he could have got 6ft 2

nothing above 184.8cm peak
Vincent Caleb said on 11/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy:
Yea, all the extreme weightlifting, steroid abuse, physical acting roles, and heavy body weight caused a good 2.5 inch shrinkage.
J2Frenzy said on 11/Nov/20
What’s with the dude who said Arnie was 5’11 and claims 6 3? There’s a big difference between being 6’1 and claiming 6’1.5 and being 5’11 and claiming 6’3

I did wonder Arnold peak was flat 6'1 and flat 180cm now.

I wonder how tall Sostris Gravas thinks Arnold was. He probably doesn’t hit 5-11 now in my opinion, but at peak was 6-1. A lot of people probably think that estimate is too high, but I really do believe it.

@Danimal = Horrible pics?But yours pics show John Larroquette a lot closer to the camera than Richard Moll plus low angle that advantage a lot the closest guy,and Richard Moll in your first pic isn't as straight as John.
Same thing for the pic you posted John Larroquette /Kevin Nealon = John stand closer to the camera plus low angle of camera that advantage a lot John.
Same thing for the pic you posted Kevin Nealon/Georges Foreman = Kevin stands closer to the camera here and advantageous angle a bit low

In more neutral pics like my pics John Larroquette is never 6"6' by 6"8' Richard Moll he looks max 6"4'

I can see the 6ft 1.25 figure as being possible, though maybe he managed 6ft 1.5 by really breathing in and busting a gut.

Listing seems very accurate, around 5'11 nowadays, but peak was about 6'1.75

Around 5'10" nowadays. He hasn't seen 5'11" in many years.
Danimal 176.7cm said on 14/Oct/20
People, Arnold was measured at 6'1.5" barefoot at night in 1969 by a man who has gone on record saying that he does not like Arnold. Why is this so hard to comprehend by so many? That is the bare minimum he stood at his very peak height. Today at 73 years old and after decades of compressing his spine with heavy weight lifting, plus having had hip replacement and possibly back surgery, he is lucky if he can hit 5'10" today.

@Tommy174 what do you mean by boosting a gut?
@Rob do you know what he means?
Editor Rob
See My Video on the 'bust a gut' height measurement.

It's literally breathing in and straining every sinew to achieve the maximal possible height...it's a stance that you can't really hold for long as the muscles will ache and you could give yourself a hernia!
Original said on 5/Oct/20
183.5 peak and 178.5 nowadays.
Pierre said on 4/Oct/20
Click Here here is again this old picture Lou Ferrigno /Adrian Paul(6"0') in 1994 .I really doubt Lou lost height in 1994.You can see the pic is inclined and favor lou,Adrian Paul stands in a relaxed posture,his neck and bust not really straight,his hands falling heavily in his pockets.And in his posture Adrian's eyes still are same height as Lou's mouth,and the top of his head comfortaby same height as Lou's eyebrows


Now Arnold /Lou around 1975 = Click Here Both guys in same straight posture.Arnold opposite to Adrian stands straight and his eyes are same height as Lou's mouth.By this comparisons difficult to me to guess a peak Arnold taller than Adrian.

And for those saying 6'1.5 is too high for a prime Arnold I believe he could hit that mark boosting a gut. Today they measure my height and I did the same to see how much I could inflate my height. My real height is 174 cm and when I measured myself boosting a gut I was 175.8 cm.
Arnold was probably just under 6'1 barefoot or a weak 6'1 guy. 185 cm would be the most I'd guess.
Tommy174 said on 1/Oct/20
Big dude. I hate when people say: "Arnold I think you were taller"! wtf Ignorant people.. They forget he is 73 years old and when you get older you lose height. Let's see how tall are they at 70. Being 5'10-5'11 at 73 is a great height. Tall dude.

@houss Exageration?! Lol of course Arnold stands a lot closer here Jimmy Kimmel stand behind Arnold's left shoulder...

@Slim I doubt Harrison was as tall as 184 .In the 90s by the mugshot he's around 5"11' barefoot

Rob. I guess on Arnold's listing you won't downgrade height. Have you thought on 6'1.25 listing? An official measurement doesn't mean Arnold was this tall because it's obvious he was 6'0.5.-75 tops
It's obvious only for you and @pierre

The eternal question is how accurate was his measurement...6ft 1, 1.25 are figures that could fit him too, the 1.5 is really the highest I think is arguable.

Next to Rob Carl Weathers in the second pic looks easily taller than in the first pic and his posture looks very similar then I tend to believe he wear sometimes generous shoes .In the first pic he looks under 6"1' to me .

Agree @Rob. What do you think?
Tim said on 12/Oct/17
I dont know if people here read.. Legit 6'2 guys like James Cameron were more than 1 inch on Arnold. Cameron claim he is 6'2 so imagine he is a real 6'1.75 he still got at least 1 inch on Arnold in 1990-1991. No chance he was never ever in his life over 6'1. In his 20's was very close. So there's no discusion safe to say he was at most 6'0.75

Editor Rob
He can look barely 6ft
realone1 said on 21/Sep/20
Guys stop the video at 1:23 and 1:27. We know Carl Weathers was a legit 6'1 guy peak and he is slouching walking next to Arnold while Arnold is closer to the camera and his posture is much better standing tall. Arnold seem to be 3/4 inch shorter than Carl. Arnold's peak was 6'0.5 max. This is the truth.

Rising174cm said on 19/Sep/20
@viper: I believe he was measured around 6'1.5", I just also think he could look only 6'1"-6'1.25" at times in his prime such as with Robert Davi so I leave open the possibility that he wasn't at his low or some other variable. That said, he could certainly look 6'1.5" with Carl Weathers, Roger Moore, Tom Arnold and others so maybe it was accurate.

As for today, well the last time I really looked at Arnold compared to others with heights listed on this website was 2018 and I thought he mostly looked 5'11"-5'11.25" range then. For instance, I didn't think he looked shorter than DiCaprio, whom I think is about 5'11" flat. That said, I had already seen Arnold look under 5'11" or 5'10.5"-5'10.75" at best back in this photo from 2014: Click Here I'll leave it to Rob how much of that is posture, but considering I have to look pretty closely and at the top of their heads to determine who is taller, Arnold is not even a full inch taller there. Of course, I've seen DiCaprio look as short as 5'10.5" range before. Not saying he is, but...

I could see and argument of a 6'1 peak but I'd say 6'0.75 peak at a very hight guess more 6'0.5. This is a more reasonable guess. Lost 2 inches max. No way he lost 3 inches watcking his proportions. You can't imagine how muvch is 2 inches even tho

@animal 176.7cm said on 19/Sep/20
Yes.. so what? Even seeing how compressed is is impossible he ever was 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 being nowadays 5'10.25 range because that's his real height in 2020. He is 5'10.25 and back in 2014 was 5'11. Strugging with 6'1 peak knowing this and looking at him. He still holds great.

Arnie edged out both Carl Weathers and Tom Arnold (who most agree were solid 6ft1ers themselves). Also an easy 2in Bill Paxton

Hip surgery seems to me does not reduce the leg .Imo if it was the case all the people who have only one side surgery would have a leg shorter than the other that would be a problem .If my memory is good Sarah Douglas had hip surgery and she had even gain height after her surgery.

Arnold's bust was not particularly tall when he was young= here Arnold next to Chet Yorton (5"11')(Chet is the left tall guy in the pic, around same height as Arnold and standing next to him ) = Click Here
Danimal 176.7cm said on 19/Sep/20
This was posted a few days ago by Arnold himself. It's him doing some bent over rows with a barbell and then curling the barbell. You can see when he's leaning over his truck to pull out the weight how much shorter his legs/hips are than they used to be (due to his hip replacement surgery where they cut the femur bone...same thing happened to Hogan and Lou Ferrigno). You can also see how compressed his upper body has become. A lot of spinal fusion going on. Anyway, he's the new video (uploaded by someone else): Click Here

I agree. I'm leaning more today 5'10 1/8" today.

@Rob. Nobody has figured out when the are walking (1:23) right after the handshake. Carl Weathers is not standing tall there just with a relax posture while Arnold is standing tall. Arnold is closer to the camera too. What do you guess now? Some time ago I thought they were around the same height but now I'm sure Carl Weathers edged him by 1/2 or 3/4 inch.
Click Here
realone1 said on 18/Sep/20
Rob. Yesterday I watched Predator and I can confirm Arnold was slightly shorter than Carl Weathers.
Click Here
First of all when Arnold is staring at Carl he is looking higher while Carl Weather not. If you paused the video when they handshake Carl Weathers chin is higher than Arnold's (1:04) and shoulder is also higher than Arnold's. Right after that when the both walk together you can see Arnold walks standing tall while Carl Weathers is walking forward head posture and he is loosing height right there. 1:23 CarL Weathers is taller. I see his proportions longer too.
To conclude I say Carl Weathers peak was 6'1-6'1 1/8 and Arnold was over 6.0 but below 6'1. 6'0.5 max.

Alir?za said on 18/Sep/20
You are wrong. Carl Weathers was a legit strong 6'1 guy and Rob met him and can confirm and Arnold was shorter.

Rob, how did Arnold lose so much height? He works out. When you are strong and workout, aren't you supposed to retain more of your height?
Editor Rob
Excessive lifting puts tremendous strain on the discs and joints, so you increase chances of losing more height

He's also had hip replacement surgery, resulting in a shorter femur bone and he's had back surgery (spinal fusion), but yes, heavy weight lifting for decades does permanently compress the discs in the spinal column, as well as the other joints in the body (ankles, knees, and hips). He's also well into his 70's so there's height loss from that as well. All of that combined has resulted in his 3.5" height loss.


@Danimal = Fact is we have only a measurement on a paper with a height gauge that we don't know while we have a large number of pic of a young Arnold by the years(in his 20/30/40/50 years old)next to lots of celebrities that show Arnold a lot under this measurement.

The 6-1.5 measurement is legit.

Vince didn't care for him and all the guys who were measured were half an inch lower than their claim.

This measurement was at night. Arnold may have been lying down for quite a while or he doesn't shrink much at all. He does have long legs and a shorter torso.

He looks too tall to have been just 6-0.

Arnold was 6-1 Minimum

Absolutely. People don't realize how tall he was in his prime. They want to guess he wasn't taller that 6'0" range based on his current height (5'10" at best), but the reality is that he was a TALL man (between 6'1" and 6'1.75" depending on the time of day).

This listing gotta be changed! I see enough evidence about Arnold's real height and I agree. He has always been overlisted. He was 6'0-6'0.25 barefoot. Rob being honest don't you really think Arnold was shorter than 6'1? I clearly see it by photos and videos. He never was over 6'0.25 barefoot. Shoes, lifts angles tricks make the rest.
If he would look really was 6"1' we would not here to debate 6"1.5. He was below this mark without doubt.
Editor Rob
I think in Arnie's case he generally could look about 6ft 1 peak, so the measurement could always be busting a gut or he had a fraction of extra height in the tank to get 6ft 1.5

Click Here This article shows that this left guy competes under 178 cm series in fitness competition. So there is the proof that this left guy is 177,7-177,8 so even with bad camera angle Arnold seems to be 5'11 in 2014. But case is in 2020 i think he has lost at least a fraction. Maybe 5'10.5 Rob today?
Editor Rob
I think he was still a bit over 5ft 11 7-8 years ago. Today, well he's holding onto 5ft 11, but sometimes can look between 5ft 10-11 range. But as I always say, looking and measuring can sometimes throw up the odd surprise.

Yes I agree you. I guess Rob's goes higher because is a 5'8 guy. A legit 6'0 6'1 guy can see Arnold was shorter than what Rob guess.

186 and 187 is really too high and never looked this height. The most he has looked is 6'1.5 range with boots in Terminator. He always been a strong 6'0 guy
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Sep/20

It should not be said that looking at a single photo, this person cannot be closer to 6'1. Jai courtney is clearly 6'1 guy. If you've watched Spartacus, it seems he was noticeably taller than 5'10 guys like Andy Whitfield.

Of course, Arnold may be wearing thick boots, but these men are not barefoot after all. İt can provide an advantage of up max 1 2 cm to Arnold.

Saw an interisting you tube clip interview with former pro wrestler Super Star Billy Graham. He talks very fondly of Arnold and clearly has a lot of respect for him. They trained together late 69s and early 70s. When asked how tall Arnold was he said "oh,oh Arnold was 5'11". Personally I think he could've been a solid 6 foot. But a statement like that from a man who clearly talks very highly of Arnold goes along way.

Arnold always looked like a tall, domineering figure in his youth up until near the end of his governorship. He was measured by Vince Basile, a man who never cared for Arnold, as 6’1.5” (186.7cm). This would fit into the perception of how Arnold came across and I imagine that was a morning/afternoon height. He’d probably dip down to 6’1” (185.4cm) at night and wake up around the 6’1.625” (187cm) mark and just round his claim up to 6’2”. In my view he should never have claimed more than 6’1.5” and he’s certainly nowhere near as tall now even if he’s above average in height. I think he dips down to around 5’11” (180.3cm) and starts off the day around 5’11.75” (182.2cm). I think a flat 5’11” listing now is too low, 5’11.25” might be more fair.
Frank Col said on 27/Aug/20
"Big" Arnie was never taller than 5ft 11 at his peak and was a big lift wearer that saw him shoot up to 6ft 2 on occasion. Just like Dolph Lundgren (never more than 6ft 2) he got away with outrageous claims about his height because all the 80s action heroes were little guys who lied about their height. It creates a knock on effect - if 5ft 7 Stallone was claiming 5ft 10 Arnie is obliged to do the same. I have met Richard E Grant and he is definitely 6ft 2. I saw a picture of him next to Arnie (who had suspect footwear) and Grant was 3 inches taller. 5ft 11 at his peak, as low as 5ft 10 now.

Arnold was 6-1 Minimum

Assumption = this height gauge was in fact generous =as I said recently I imagine if some of this bodybuilders were measured on this height gauge,even if the result was half an inch under their official height,by considering some of this bodybuilders had apparently their official height generally easily more generous than only half an inch then they were still happy with the measurement on this height gauge.
Here the link of a guy who met Sergio in the 80s (Sergio listed 5"10' /5"11' in some magazines) the guy explain he was very surprised when he met him and guess him around 5"8' (even 5"7' in a comment of the same guy in the forum )= Click Here

Example (assumption) = a bodybuilder listed 5"10' official height
Real height = 5"8'
Measurement on a generous height gauge = 5"9.5' = the guy can still be happy with the 5"9.5' measurement.

Arnold did look 6'1.5" enough for me to believe Basille measured him at that, but there are other times when he didn't look taller than 6'1" flat. It's plausible he was more like 186 cm peak and wasn't at his low during the measurement despite it being in the evening or there was a small margin of error. I'd be surprised if he wasn't still at least a full 5'11", though.

lol Houss of course Arnold stand closer to the camera his head looks bigger than evander's head ,here their heads when both are around same distance to the camera= Click Here .The reason is= in the 1996 pic Evander slouch on the opposite side of the camera that explain why his left shoulder stand higher than his right shoulder,and finally Arnold has an advantage Click Here

Evander isn't straight here,his head a lot in front of his shoulders and body and his head tilting on the side of the camera.Arnold sometimes wear cowboy boots in events .

He looked very similar height with evander holyfield at 1996. Evander is listed 6'1.25 inches and probably it is right. He is noticibally taller than Mike tyson. Like 3 inches.So I don't think Arnold was shorter than 6 ft at until early 2000's

What you guys think about 178cm peak?, wich I read he was measured at in the army in Austria. And 176cm today?. My grandfather is 85yo he is today 177cm and was peak 179cm. He also whey about 200lbs so he has not shrank so much.

Is the best mistery on this site. Sincerely (considering he was usual to wear thick shoes or boots) he looked to me a strong 6’1/185cm guy, but according to rob we cannot consider the letter written by Vince Basile which stated he was measured at 6’1.5/187cm in 1969. We need however to consider that Basile is a friend of Arnie and I think Arnie usually got hungry if people though he was short so I can even think the letter is a sort of present from Vince to his friend Arnie...today no doubt he’s max 5’11/180cm...

🎁💪🎂🎉 Happy Birthday Arnie! 🎉🎂💪🎁

A Very Happy Birthday to Arnold Schwarzenegger, who celebrates the 73rd anniversary of the day he popped into the world. 👶 I watched him in a film called 'The Sixth Day' on Monday, shown on The Horror Channel. It's well worth checking out, folks!

I'm going for 6ft1.75 for Arnie's peak and 5ft11.75 for today's height. I must admit that even my Mum remarked upon his sensational stature when I showed her 'T2'. She said, "You get so excited when you show me a film!" Happy memories never leave you....😁

Have a great family day with Maria and your five children, dear Arnie! XXX 🌹

Obviously when you are younger and active with all the energy in the world. He could've been 6'2. When people get older your body tends to shrunk. He could now be much shorter because of his age. So it is possible that he is not as tall as he use to. Read people read

@RapidOh = but in his 19 he was around same height as Chet Yorton 5"11' ,and around his 25 he was three good inches shorter than Lou Ferrigno ...

Genuinely struggles to look even 5'11" these days. It's weird how compact he can look considering the huge impression he gave off in his youth.
Alex Italy said on 25/Jul/20
186 187 cm is the perfect guess, you are tall but not so tall that you always look towering. You can often find people taller or on par with you but most of the times you are the taller one. Because of the footwear you can look the same height of people who are 183 to 185 cm
I really think Arnold was 186 or 187 in his prime, 6'1 and 1/2, rounded up to 6'2 by Basile.
Swede2 said on 24/Jul/20
I just dont belevie he shrank almost 7cm wich is more then 2,5 inch. That just sounds way to much especially for his height and he dont have that bad posture either. I think he was 6foot max peak(maybe only 178cm today. And if you look at bmi it just dont make sense he was ever over 6foot and that big at only about 105kg.

His 6'1 3/4 claim is because is practically 6'2 and because he mentioned his shrink. At worst, he had to say about 1 inch because he lost a lot of height.

I think odds are 187 was his prime shoe height.

I don't think anyone serious is buying this 187 BS claim anymore, it just doesn't make any sense, especially if you compare him to Lou in Pumping Iron.
Most of the Predator crew was taller than him too.

Absolute best case scenario for him is 6'1 in his prime.

Click Here here you can see Ken Waller and Dave Draper(the guy who looks 5"10' range next to Max Bear Junior).Ken stand very probably a bit closer to the camera but not more distant to the camera than Dave .By this comparison I never buy a strong 5"11' ,big max strong 5"10'

Arnold was measured by musclemag at 6'1.75" they rounded up to 6'2" to make it easier in print. Vince Basille who has no reason to lie for arnold and has bad feeling towards him also measured him about the same, so that should put it to bed really. Photos mean nothing, I can stand a certain way at 5'10 and look similar in height to my 5'7" gf. Posture means alot, sometimes arnold slumps and other times with good posture he looks significantly taller. Arnold himself also has said he's 6ft now and stated 5 inches shorter than manganiello

Certainly, Photos can be misleading. I am 6'3 but at some group photo, I look same height as 6'1 guys.


Yes very possible= depending if you stand in relaxed posture,the shoes, if 6"1' guys are standing a bit closer to the camera,if the camera is a bit low ...lots of parameters in fact.a 6"1' guy a bit closer to the camera can sometimes look same height if the camera is a bit low.Also depending if you're more a weak or a strong 6"3' and same thing for the 6"1' guys.

Arnold here with on an inclined posture. He has legs and body lengh longer , bigger proportions. look hips level, etc. Arnold is 2-3 taller. 184-185 was Arnold's height peak. I agree 186-187 is out and too much for Arnold, but I wouldn't ruled out a very strong 185 man.

Arnie's peak height was a strong 6'1" but is barely 6' these days. He edged Carl Weathers in Predator but is slightly shorter than him today, of course movies aren't always an accurate interpretation of a persons height what with lifts etc but he was certainly over 6' during his prime..

Pierre said on 1/Jul/20
@Jay79 = ...Or maybe the height gauge was standing in bad posture.About postures = Brigitte Nielsen clearly stands in relaxed posture while Arnold stand particularly straight and looks just a bit taller than her .Arnold and Lou barefoot regular floor both standing in exactly same posture(imposed bodybuilding postures) same distance to camera Arnold's eye is big max same height as Lou's mouth ,no less than 3 inches shorter than him.All this guys listed 6"5'/6"6'/6"4' next to Lou are more or less taller than Lou and show each time Lou shorter,around 6"3' mark,same thing with his 6"2' stunt double looking just a bit shorter than him and Lou probably wear a factice big forehead plus toupee above.Arnold next to Chet Yorton 5"11' is maybe not perfectly straight but Chet Yorton isn't perfectly straight too and both are looking very similar Arnold maybe half an inch taller.Several pics and comparisons show the same thing.A 187 guy or around this mark has to be in a terrible posture to look a weak 6"0' in pics ,but I never see this terrible posture.Next to Dave Draper Arnold maybe shrunk a bit but you can see Dave isn't perfectly straight,he's the only guy here who bends his knee and pelvis in relaxed posture.About Dave Draper next to Max Baer Junior = Later in the video we can see Max's shoe and he has only soles(no heels) then maybe a fraction more shoe ,and the tip of his nose looks comfortably as high as Dave's top of head.By this comparison Dave is never even close to 6"0'mark, more 5"10' /5"10.5'= a 6"0' guy next to a 6"4' guy looks only a forehead shorter.Arnold never looks 6"1.5', even by imagining Dave 5"11'...

185cm is too low for his peak. Easily 186-187cm range in Pumping Iron and Hercules. Edges out Reg Park and Mike Katz (both 6ft1)

Reg Park was supposed 6"1' and Arnold does not edge him out Click Here Click Here = in this pic the middle guy is Dave Draper supposed 6"0' .....here at 2:42 /2:43 Click Here he's standing next to Max Baer Jr listed 6"4',he' s same height as the top of his nose...Arnold looks about an inch taller than him.

He's not your average 72 year old though.

Steroids and bodybuilding is what did it imo

Absolute most he could be is 179cm.

Definitely shorter than 182cm.

Click Here here Arnold in very good posture Brigitte tilting her head while Arnold's head is looking up , generous space between her own feet ,plus watch the angle of her left foot(the most distant to the camera) =nearly 90 degrees to her right foot plus camber looking exaggerated =to me one more time she really shrunk here and Arnold in his advantageous posture looks just a bit taller than her.

Click Here here a pic again inwich we can see the type of slim sole she was wearing in this movie.Imo hard to wear slimer sole than hers.
There was a good pic in web inwich we could clearly see her sole = she had not even a little heel only a slim sole.

I believe he was taller than 185 cm, and his height was probably 186-187 cm maybe solid 187 cm when he was 20's. But he has really very bad genes, he has losted solid at least 7 cm. Probably he has massive osteoporoz and kyphos.

Next to Brigitte Nielsen 6"0' (1985) Brigitte relaxed posture (legs/neck),(pic inclined in favor to Arnold by the lines in the floor) Arnold looks max similar height as her ,I doubt he shrunk before his 40 Click Here

Here (1966) at 19 next to Chet Yorton 5"11'(left guy next to Arnold on the pic) =both are looking very similar heights Click Here .

I never see 6"1' or above here.

I posted recently pic Arnold/Lou same posture ( around 1975 )Arnold looks at least 3 inches shorter than Lou .A young Lou looks maybe 6"3' next to his stuntdouble 6"2' (Hulk)


Yes he look really same height next to brigitte Nielson. But maybe she wearing big shoes . But I am sure Lou ferrigno wasn't shorter than 6'4 in his peak. Because he look still 6'3 inches. Maybe 6'2.5 but not shorten than that is

But yes Arnold's peak height could be anywhere 6-6'1. But I still think his peak height was a little taller than 185 cm

That's is the proof. knowing Rob is 173 cm Lou looks at least 189-190.0 cm. He looks to be in his 50'-60's so add 1 to 2 cm to his peak height. Lou was at least 191 cm peak maybe 192. Arnold was 7-8 cm shorter so Arnold was at least 184 cm.
Your guess is just a joke

Lol in the pic Arnold /Lou we can see both are barefeet .In the pic Lou /Adrian Paul we can see the shoes .In the video Lou /John Larroquette we can see Lou wear shoes at around 0:18 = Click Here ...Pic Lou and his stuntdouble = we can see both are wearing similar shoes .....

I saw Arnold compete in several MR. Olympias and Mr. Worlds in Columbus in mid 70's. On stage and watching him as he strolled through the crowd told me he was definitely several inches over 6'. I also trained in the same gym with Ken Waller at about the same time and he was definitely a 6 footer. I saw a picture of Waller behind Arnold in this forum and they look to be the same size. So, I believe Arnold to be around 6'2 when in his mid 20's
