Marvin Eder used many strength training routines over the years. He particularly enjoyed Olympic lifting, and for bodybuilding purposes, mainly trained on the split system of 2 days on with the 3rd day off for rest. Upper body one day, legs and mid section the next day. Four times a week where he would work out Monday and Tuesday, rest Wednesday, workout Thursday and Friday and rest the weekends because the training was exceptionally heavy.
