The Arnold Classic

Columbus weight lifters are bulking up for this weekend's "Arnold Classic competition. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is scheduled to appear at the Greater Columbus Convention Center Friday and Saturday for the body-building competition. Lamarr Daniels works at the Jessie Owens Gym at Ohio State. He plans to attend the event.

Daniels says he is considering training for the next "Arnold Classic."

Local noncompetitors are pulling their weight, too. Ohio State senior Leeanna Shooster says she works out to improve her health.

Daniels says it's not health that motivates the athletes, but "looking good." The "Arnold Classic" is expected to attract more than 80,000 people this weekend.
