Lou Ferrigno quote: "From what I see, most people train one bodypart a week. I think you should do more that that, hit it twice a week. They’re also doing 20 sets, which is way too many. I believe you should do only 10 to 12 sets, max, per bodypart. After every 72 hours or so, you should hit that part again. You can rotate exercises.

 

The best regimen for me is three days on/one day off. I’ll do chest and back on day one, biceps and triceps on day two and shoulder and legs on day three. The beauty is you can change exercises all the time, which always makes it interesting. You don’t need to do that much. It’s how you train. I do one warmup set, then four sets, eight to 10 reps, three exercises per bodypart. It should never take more than an hour to do your weight workout. You can add up to 30 minutes of cardio a few times per week."
