When Schwarzenegger signed on for T3 in 2001 he was unable to continue to train in the above manner. Age and open heart surgery prevented him from pushing his muscles to negative failure and he instead needed to revert to high rep low weight training.

Diet
Contrary to popular opinion you cannot turn fat into muscle. What you can do is build muscle to combat fat as it speeds up your metabolism. For the best results in obtaining the Schwarzenegger shape it is important that your muscles are constantly working to their upmost capacity. Your best bet is t follow the below guidelines:

Eat 5-6 smaller meals a day to keep your metabolism working quickly
Eat carbs half an hour after exercising
Rest at least 3 days a week
Sleep 8 or more hours a day
Eat 30 to 50 grams of protein with each meal every 3 hours
Not avoid unsaturated fats because they raise hormone levels
Eat between 60 and 100 grams of carbs per day
Eat no more than 3 eggs a day
Substitute beef and pork with chicken and fish
Avoid sugar -- it contains empty calories; eat fruits and vegetables for carbs instead

SUPPLEMENTS

Whey protein shakes are a good basis to ensure you get the required daily amount of protein to keep your muscles working long after you've finished your workout. Creatine intake is also good as it supplies energy to muscles, therefore keeping them ticking over and increasing strength to aid in workouts.

Problems
getting the size and shape of Schwarzenegger is a labour of love that take a long long time. aside from the mass your body generates each muscle group is perfectly sculpted to perfection and optimum performance. To this end it is worth noting that the physical and mental strain you need to endure to get this shape is intense. It is also something that needs to be built up to. attempting Schwarzenegger's routine after years of sitting in and office in 38 waist pants will run the risk of serious injury, start small (as beleive it or not the governator himself did) and ensure you get enough Protein to grow the muscles your working for.
