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. 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
Editor Rob
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.

184.5cm tops. 186cm is way too high for arnold
TheDon1528 said on 25/Sep/20
6'1" in his prime but barley 5'11" these days.
Pierre said on 25/Sep/20
@realone=I have no reasons to downgrade each guy here just I give my opînion by some pics I watch. Read eventually some comments here like for example at Kevin Nash's page , the comment on 22 februar 2020 with a pic of the guy Big Ben next to Kevin Nash.

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 .

Here with a 6'0.25 guy

Me at 6’0.25 with Carl.I’d say he had a very slight advantage on me in shoes.0.5” maybe.

Carl Weathers is a solid 6'0.5 guy at 71 year old. He was 6'1 without any doubt or 185 cm at least.

I READ THAT ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER WAS MEASURED IN THE AUSTRIAN ARMY AT 178CM.

The last thing - sorry, but I don't believe in Vince Basile's words. He claimed not only tat Arnold was 6'1.5" tall, but also that Arnold has 21.5 inches bicep. Which was ofc not true.

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

Rob how much does look Arnold here? The left guy is 175 cm tall. His name is Bill Pearl listed at 5'9". As I said Arnold was never 6'1 range.
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
realone1 said on 19/Sep/20
@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.
realone1 said on 19/Sep/20
Carl Weathers peak: 185.5-185.8 cm
Arnold's peak: 184.5 cm max

Arnie edged out both Carl Weathers and Tom Arnold (who most agree were solid 6ft1ers themselves). Also an easy 2in Bill Paxton
Pierre said on 19/Sep/20
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

Rising, I'd be surprised If Arnold is
5-11.

Most he can be is 5-10.25-5-10.5 imo

I agree. I'm leaning more today 5'10 1/8" today.
realone1 said on 18/Sep/20
@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.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have said in Carl looked taller, they seemed within same kind of range and Weathers I think was a decent 6ft 1 then.

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

@Kurzzawa=Even with a zoom I personnaly cannot guess the marks on the height gauge.If this guy competed in category under 178 then it is logically only the proof he's under 178 but not the proof he's as tall as 177.But let's say he's 177,5.In the pic next to Arnold Arnold has advantageous hairs and to me stands straighter than this guy,Arnold only tilt his head here so does not lose lots of height compared to the guy who seems to me slouching a bit with his bust/neck and his legs not perfectly straight .

Rob, this picture Click Here was taken 2014 in Finland and that left guy is exactly 5'10. Proof: Click Here (seems to be slightly under 178 cm when u zoom. 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.

Slim 6'1" said on 7/Sep/20
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.
Arnold was about 183-184 not taller. This is obvious to the eye.
Pierre said on 29/Aug/20
If he would look really 6"1' we would not here to debate this 6"1.5
You just said my thoughs. I personally think Arnold was a strong 6'0 man 183 range is ok.
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
186-187 is way too high, he should be getting 184-185 guesses. Lou Ferrigno edged him by 2 inches minimum and he’s not that much taller than Bruce Willis

@Alir?Za =Fact is Jai Courtney next to Bruce Willis and Sebastian Koch never looks close to 6"1' in this pics.And Jason Clarke in fact looks shorter than Jai in your pic.Cow By boots give you imo easily more than only a centimeter on classic shoes= classic shoes around 2.5 centimeters Cow boy boots no less than 4 centimeters

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.

I think he was very close to 6 ft in 2015 maybe full 6 ft
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/20
Rob, what are chances that he was 6ft1 peak?

I think it’s too low
Editor Rob
It would be the lowest I'd go for him, but generally 6ft 1 up to 1.5 I think anywhere in that range is possible.

Josey Wales said on 5/Sep/20
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.

@Viper: I could buy a solid 6’1” peak which is where I have Arnold but just because he didn’t like him is not a good enough reason. People here equate saying someone is shorter than they are or thinking it simply because they don’t like someone when the two have nothing to do with one another

The 6-1.5 measurement is legit.

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

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.

Lou Ferrigno listed 6"5' in web = here wearing very probably advantageous mask plus toupee ( Click Here Click Here ) next to Manny Perry listed 6"2' = Click Here

next to Dick Durock listed 6"5.5' /6"6' = Click Here

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.

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.

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.

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.

@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'...

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

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

@Shannon = Arnold's peak 6"2' or 6"1.5' is a non sense,Arnold 6"1.5' 6"2' peak would means Lou's peak was at least 6"4.5' /6"5' ...

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.

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

Wrong. Lou was a strong 191. Just look at him on celebs. That's the proof. 193 is maybe too high.
Lou 191.5 cm and Arnold 184 cm
7.5 cm between them

I odn't understand where your proof .

Click Here Lou next to John Larroquette isn't looking a strong 191 ,if it was the case he would look nearly same height as John but Lou has to looking up to talk to a John not even perfectly straight. And watch their shoulders,John's shoulders tower over Lou's shoulders.No less than 3 cm here imo even with a slim difference of shoes(only a supposition)

Click Here Next to Adrian Paul 6"0', Adrian isn't even straight,in very relax posture with hands a lot in his pockets ,the neck not straight = his eyes still are comfortably same height as Lou 's mouth (by considering the pic inclined in favour to Lou) while Arnold this time in same posture as Lou has his mouth hardly same height as Lou's mouth = Click Here

Click Here A young Lou next to Dick Durock nearly 50 years old here listed 6"5.5' 6"6' looks easily three inches shorter .

Click Here Next to his stunt double listed 6"2' he looks around a good inch taller but eventually wear a long fake forehead plus a toupee over his real hairs= Click Here ...

Arnold in around 1975 was looking around 8 cms shorter than Lou Ferrigno by good pic.A young Lou Ferrigno at around 30 years old looks around 190 next to Manny Perry /John Larroquette/Dick Durock.Again in his 43 next to Adrian Paul not even perfectly straight.Then a peak at 185 seems to myself too high for Arnold.

@Rob Lifting weights is not a reason on losing height. It's a benefit so keep joints and bones strong. A 40 year old man can't lose height if is not something really bad. Arnold was always a healthy guy.

When Arnold exactly started to lose height is a mystery, but given how much weights he was lifting, his first fraction lost could have been earlier in his movie career.

Lets Say bridges was just 186cm plus 1.5cm shoes 187.5cm just about 6-2 arnie dosnt look under 6ft 1 1/8 in just about 186cm , but if bridges was nearly 187cm and his shoes had a small confort insolé ans gave near 2cm then 188.5cm shoes on arnie does look as listed 186.5cm , but i think if arnie was 6-1.5 no one would have question the 6-2 and hé would have looked oftenly 6-2-2.25in wearing big shoes and hé didnt so 6-0.75-6-1.25 is safe 185-186cm Peak tall enaugh to look 6-2 and short enaugh to look 6ft at times

Rob please change this:
"Peak height was 6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm)"
obviously he never was 187 cm and most og guys don't believe it. You just need to watch his movies.
He just was this height with footwear. 6-6'0.5 is more realistic
Do you really believe this? The problem is when people start believing this just because a guy said he measured Arnold at 187 cm. What a funny story
robettaylor said on 1/Jun/20
To know Arnold's real height, you have to compare barefoot bodybuilder photos and according to my calculations it is 186+. it is undeniable, what else would be necessary to travel to 1985/1986.but I would have shoes so ... Because from there he start to shrink due to his bodybuilding career.
it is silly to buy with images from when he is 45,50,60,65 years old, he had already shrunk more with age.
don't try to fool yourself.

He’s between 6-0 and 6-1 peak. Realistically 6-0.5 is probably accurate. Now struggling with 5-11.
Ian C. said on 29/May/20
Bodybuilders compete barefoot before live audiences, and stand upright on stage with other men to whom they are critically compared. No way would Arnold try exaggerating his true height by more than half an inch when he was a competing bodybuilder. If he wasn't his claimed six foot two, he was still very close.

Of course, in bodybuilding you're allowed to cheat, since all champion bodybuilders take steroids. Is it cheating to take drugs when they're not expressly banned by the official rules? I think it is. When I was a teenager I owned a set of Weider barbells, and I read Weider's magazines, with their numerous stories about how to train, and their ads for diet supplements to help you grow. Not a word about steroids. Not one word. So my brother and I stuffed ourselves with food and lifted weights until we were exhausted to no avail, unaware that the wonderful physiques in the ads had been enhanced by drugs. We were cheated, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was one of the cheats.

And I never liked his lousy movies either. But he was pretty close to six foot two in his youth and, yes, he will probably never be surpassed as a bodybuilder when he was in his prime.

I think his was 6ft 1.5 maybe a few hours after sleep, I dont think he could have hold on this height till the end of the day. I can see still 6ft 1 the lowest evening height.
He was a strong 6ft 1 guy, shorter with about 1 inch than 6ft2 Bush senior or taller than 6ft, than Briggite Nielsen.
I think a 6ft 1.25 would be a better match

@Viper= we have a measurement with a height gauge that we don't know and we have lot's of good pics to compare Arnold with other guys .If my memory is good other bodybuilders were measured with this height gauge and were satisfied by the result or were measured half an inch less than their usual height ....But we have for example a bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno with a 6"5' official height who looks maybe an inch taller than his 6"2' stunt double ,shorter than 6"4' John Larroquette by a good inch...etc ....We have Ken Waller billed 6"0' and who looks maybe half an inch taller than an old Joe Weider listed 5"10' peak... if Lou and Ken were measured with this height gauge and this height gauge give only 6"4.5' for Lou and only 5"11.5' for Ken=I want to say =both guys can still be satisfied imo .And the reality is still below this marks by comparisons.In this site a guy talk about Sergio's height when he has met Sergio Oliva = Click Here and under the article ,in the forum,apparently the same guy posted a comment and explain he guessed Sergio 5"7' if my memory is good.

Pierre do you see Arnold tiptoeing to look taller. A 6'1.5 arnold tiptoeing should look at least 5 inches taller than 5'10 Dantes. The difference is far less. In fact Arnold is only slightly taller without the tiptoeing.

Now nobody answered the fact that a peak Arnold was 2 inches shorter than a 60 year old George Bush senior. please somebody answer that one.

Click Here

Click Here

So forget the taller than 6 foot claims for Arnold. He has been wearing lifts his whole career. Same goes for Stallone.

Arnold average height. With lifts looked 6'0-6'1. Muscularity WAYYYY above average, add camera angle from beneath which makes him lool even bigger. That's how you make an average height look tall.

Arnold was a classic 184 guy barefoot. I'd say a solid 184 guy so 6'0.5 in the 70's is correct. Years and years watching him photos, movies. Looked a flat 6'0 in the 2000's, 5'11.5 2004, 5'11 in 2014 and these days clearly below 5'11. He is 5'10.5 in 2020

-first pic you posted = recent pic with old Lou Ferrigno who has probably shrink a bit after surgeries and clearly not straight,he clearly shrink here....
second pic you posted = by considering the camera is very low Lou looks like a giant next to Arnold here!
-your pic number three = we cannot see the whole bodies but we can see Lou clearly slouch a lot here !

Arnold max 6"0' peak

@Rob
There are 3 inches clearly between them on the old photos. And it could be a bigger difference

With Lou, there did seem times like Arnie could be a flat 6ft 1

@Hi Rob. What do you think?
If Lou Ferrigno was 193 cm in his peak then Arnold was never 187 or 186 cm
Click Here
There are 8 cm between them.
I think Ferrigno was more 192 cm then Arnold was closer to be a 184 guy.

It's clear.
Ferrigno was like 6'3.5 peak and Arnie 6'0.5 yes.
I dont believe your guess saying Arnie was below 6'0. That's a joke.
Toaday Arnold is under 5'11 I know like 5'10-5'10.5 but like 6'0.5 in his prime

Jeff Bridges looked a little bit taller than Arnie in Stay Hungry so I would estimate slightly under 6'1" peak and 5'11.5" now for Arnie.

Somewhere between 6'0.5-6'1 was his peak without a doubt. Below 6'0.5 is impossible and never over 6'1.
6'1.25 out of bed 6'0.5 before bed.
These are my stimations by all I've seen. I find impossible other marks
Pierre said on 30/Apr/20
Watch again the recent comment on 22/April with both videos comparisons Donald Trump 6"2' and Arnold next to David Letterman ,David Letterman slouching more next to Arnold than next to Donald and Arnold straight Donald slouching =both video dated from 1987 so Arnold only 40 ,he never looks even close to Donald's height.Max 6"0' range in 1987 by this comparison

His peak was supposed to be a measured 6ft 1.5, but it is not a certainty, 6ft 1.25 would also be something he might have measured. 6ft 2 seems hard to imagine him measuring during the day in the 70's


6ft1¼ is the lowest I'd argue for his peak and what you currently have him at is fine IMO. The full 6ft2 and 6ft1 flat are both unlikely peak but somewhere between is arguable.
shortishdude said on 29/Apr/20
Totally agree!
6'2 with boots is the highest he looked in movies. I go with 6'0.5 peak

Was watching jingle all the way recently and looking at Arnold its difficult to really tell. A guy 6'0-6'1 can definitely look 6'2 om film. I believe Arnold was definitely over 6'0 back then but certainly not 6'2. 6'1 i still believe is possible but not over that.
jano said on 29/Apr/20
He is 181-182 these days, 187 peak.
Cockstride said on 28/Apr/20
Absolutely nothing convinced me he was 6-2. Exactly the opposite. 6-0.5 peak. In boots etc that’s a 6-2 person in Hollywood. It’s that simple.
