During most of the year Danny "the Giant Killer" trains 4 to 6 days a week He always follows the same split. Day 1 Chest and Back. Day 2 Shoulders and Arms. Day 3 legs. Repeat. If he misses a workout, (which he often does, he doesn’t worry about it, he just does that workout when he returns to the gym. During this time he does 2 to 3 exercises per body-part for 5 sets of 12 reps. Danny uses the same weight in each set. When he can get 12 reps on all 5 sets, he’ll add weight during the next workout. His rest between sets is short. No longer than a minute. Even though the volume is high Danny completes these workouts in just over an hour… This is another way of keeping the intensity high which was taught by Vince Gironda, Bill Pearl and other great trainers of “the golden era” of bodybuilding.

Chet Yorton experimented for a while with diferent weight lifting routines until he settle with the one he used for the rest of his career. He used a push-pull routine. Mondays he trained chest, shoulders and triceps. Tuesdays he trained back, biceps and legs. Then next day he would take it off and then repeat the routine. All exercises are 4 exercises per body part for 5 sets and 8-10 reps except chest. For chest he would use 300lbs for 100 reps total. So he would do sets until he reached 100 reps and then do 1 rep with 405. Full workout below:
A young girl killed herself after poor choices and bullying made her feel like life just wasn't worth living anymore. Her name was Amanda Todd and she was only 15 years old. Bodybuilding or strength training would not have helped her situation. Courage is what would've helped not from her but those around her who didn't stand up a defend her. This happens all to often, someone is getting picked on and crowd gathers around and watches. Just watches. Now if you're lifting weight and you're a strong man or woman then what the hell are you scared of?
The following workouts were advanced arm routines that Rick Wayne used from time to time. Below is the workout in which he used what he called "super-super sets".
He did two exercises for biceps followed by two exercises for triceps. A short rest would then be taken and he would repeat the “super-super set” again for the desired number of times, usually 4 to 6 “super-super sets” were performed.
