Arnold accepted his son’s ribbing, saying “that’s fair”
The Terminator star, 71, shared two photos from a recent trip to Budapest where he started off the day with a chilly bike ride, and ended it with a frosty — and decadent — milkshake.
“Life is all about balance. A 0 degree (celsius) temperature didn’t stop me from my morning bike ride, and my commitment to fitness didn’t stop me from enjoying some not-0 calorie delicious treats. #lifeisaworkout” he posted on Instagram on Friday.
But Patrick seemed to think it it would take more than a bike ride for his dad to find balance after indulging in the doughnut-topped milkshake.
“Yah better drop down and gimme 10 after that milkshake,” Patrick commented on the photos.
And Arnold agreed, responding, “That’s fair.”
The former bodybuilder admits he works out a bit differently these days.
“Squatting and all those kind of like heavy leg exercises, I can’t do anymore,” he told Men’s Health in November. “My knees are shot. I have to protect my knees because I want to go skiing.”
After his years in the gym, Arnold had to undergo shoulder, hip and knee surgery. So his preferred method of exercise is now biking.
“I do mostly bicycling, so that’s why I want to bicycle all over the world,” he said. “When I travel, I get around in the bicycle. When I go shopping or something, I go on the bicycle, because then you can exercise in the legs and you see the town in a totally different way.”

And Arnold said that Patrick is quite that athlete himself — which probably accounts for his son’s playful ribbing.
“Patrick, he works out every day, but he doesn’t want to get too big because of the acting, because he’s being sought after now for romantic roles, not action roles,” Arnold said. “But eventually, when he gets to be like 30, 35, he will go get bigger and then do more action movies. But I love seeing [my sons] work out and being into it. It’s a great feeling.”
“Had to take advantage of the lighting,” Baena captioned a recent post.
