Arnold Schwarzenegger attends the Los Angeles Premiere of Netflix's "FUBAR" at The Grove on May 22, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is known for his bodybuilding and action star career. However, he started working out at a young age with the pressures of meeting his father’s expectations. Schwarzenegger, 75, got candid about his addictive workout routine with ET while at the screening of his upcoming action-comedy series, FUBAR, at The Grove in Hollywood on Monday (May 22).

The Terminator alum told the publication that his love for exercise was something that was ingrained in him as a kid. For Schwarzenegger, getting up early every morning to hit the gym is just a way of life. “You know, I don’t consider myself disciplined because something that I’ve done since I was a little kid was workout in the morning,” he shared. “I remember when my father said, ‘You cannot have breakfast first. You have to earn it. You have to do 200 sit-ups and push-ups.’ So that’s how I grew up.”

Feel-Good Routine

As a result, the action star explained that he is “now addicted to working out every day. If I do a film, or like when I was doing FUBAR, we were working out when we were night-shooting, we were working out at three in the morning sometimes, and at five in the morning, or at nine in the morning. So it really doesn’t matter. I just have to get my one-hour workout in and then some bike riding to kind of like get some cardiovascular training.”

Arnold added that working out isn’t something just for actors getting fit for films or athletes gearing up for games. “It just makes you feel good, no matter what you do,” he shared. “If you do a TV series, if you do a movie, if you write a book, if you go and do a speech. Whatever you do, you need to feel fit and full of energy.”

29 Movies That Turn 40 in 2023

When looking at the movies that turn 40 in 2023, one thing is very clear: 1983 kind of ruled!

In 1983, a holiday classic was born with A Christmas Story. Meanwhile, a star was born in Tom Cruise thanks to Risky Business. Women started cutting up their sweatshirts thanks to Flashdance, and a new sex symbol was born thanks to that gold bikini in Return of the Jedi. We also said hello to a little friend (Scarface), gave our daughter the shot (Terms of Endearment) and were gagged with a spoon (Valley Girl.)
