Arnold Schwarzenegger, 73, is considered an all-time bodybuilder, a true pioneer and a phenomenon.
He is the idol of many young and a little older gym enthusiasts.
The Austrian-born bouquet won the prestigious Mr. Olympia bodybuilding title as many as seven times.
However, Schwarzenegger also had his own role model;
the legendary Chet Yorton.
He was known as the father of natural bodybuilding.
Yorton died on November 21 at the age of 81.
Schzarzenegger honored his idol on Twitter a couple of weeks after that.
- Chet Yorton was a legend.
He beat me in the 1966 Mr. Universe races when I was 19. It inspired me to get better, but he should remember a lot more than just that.
He was a great father and spread the good news of health to millions.
Yorton's daughter Shannan said she lost both parents on the same day.
Chet died of a heart attack after seeing his wife Vicky dead.
