Matty Ferrigno Pumping Iron

Matty Ferrigno played a big role in the hugely popular semi-documentary "Pumping Iron", which chronicled the training in the weeks leading up to the Mr. Olympia contest. In the film, he was shown helping his son Lou train, and had many unforgettable lines that are still quoted to this day. To many fans, the role Matty played is what made the film as great as it is.

One great line that Matty said to Lou during the film, "Don't ever feel sorry for yourself Louie, if you're training hard Arnold is training twice as hard." The Pumping Iron DVD is available on this site. Go to Pumping Iron Video
