Lou Ferrigno Height

"The attitude is very important. Because your behavior radiates how you feel."

~ Lou Ferrigno

Great bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno is known for winning the IFBB Mr. America title and two consecutive IFBB Mr. Universe titles.

Lou Ferrigno is known for being huge as well. He was one of the biggest bodybuilders of his time -- certainly the tallest one. Which made him an ideal choice for playing the character of Hulk before animation and CGI came into play in video media.

Now Mr. Ferrigno was described as 6-feet-4 inches (sometimes even 6'5") tall throughout his career. He was clearly around the mark as well, as he made Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime look small. Arnold used to be 6-feet-1½ inches though he is considerably shorter now at 5-feet-11 inches.

After some more such height comparisons of Mr. Ferrigno, we think his impressive physique made him look even taller.

Though just like Arnold Schwarzenegger, now due to age and health issues, Mr. Ferrigno appears a lot shorter than his prime self.

The height of Lou Ferrigno in his prime was

6'4" or 193 cm

Present height is 6'2"
