Jim Arrington Says:
“Just about anything works for a while, then your body adapts and requires new challenges,”
“Bodybuilding is hard work! You need to set goals, but most of all, you need to love the training. No bodybuilder is satisfied with how they look. If you want to compete, compete! If you don’t, you never will.”
Arrington said all his life he “wanted to excel to something and be world class”.
“In bodybuilding, my true love, becoming the best over 80 and earning my Pro Card, was that goal reached,” he says.
“Gaining a Guinness World Records title must therefore, be 100 times better! My friends and family are all delighted. Everyone wants to be photographed with the certificate!”
To all those dreaming of a Guinness World Records title in their future: I say GO FOR IT!
