Grantland Film Looks at Schwarzenegger’s Teen Years

Arnold Schwarzenegger has pretty much turned into a punch line at this point in his life.

But before he nearly destroyed the state of California and acting as we know it, Schwarzenegger was part of the Austrian Army as a teen.

Arnold’s Blueprint, as part of Grantland’s 30 for 30 Shorts, touches on this topic in a 12-minute film that was released on Wednesday. If you ever wondered how Schwarzenegger got involved in bodybuilding, then this is the film for you.

Michael and Jeff Zimbalist, the two men responsible for the incredible 30 for 30 film The Two Escobars,  directed the short.

The 30 for 30 Shorts will air monthly on Grantland and Schwarzenegger will join Bill Simmons on The B.S. Report podcast on Tuesday.
