Roger Callard detailed his workout routine in his interview for the article "Insider on the Outside" and below is what he said:

 

 "I train three times a week and do my entire body at each workout. I train Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Each session lasts about one hour. On nonworkout days I do aerobics.

 

Legs: Leg extensions, squats, leg curls, 15 to 25 reps on each. One big tri-set. No rest between exercises.

Chest: One set of flyes, 15 to 25 reps. Then a set of either incline presses or flat bench dumbbell presses, always to failure.

Back: Pulldowns, 15 to 25 reps. Immediately go to bent-over rows, 15 to 25 reps. 

Shoulders: A tri-set of alternate front raises (as one’s going up, one’s coming down), bent-over laterals (for rear delts and dumbbell    presses, 15 to 25 reps, each set to failure.

Arms: Seated incline dumbbell curls supersetted with triceps extensions, using same dumbbells; 15 to 25 reps.

Abs: 75 reps, usually on an ab machine

On off days, I go for an hour walk or 20-minute run. I don’t have any joint problems because I never did anything stupid in the gym.

 

People talk about training heavy, but heavy is a relative term. For me endurance is more important than power. Look at the world’s strongest men—they can’t run around the block without a ventilator.

 

Word to the wise: If size were essential, a bull could catch a rabbit."

I think he followed splits

I think he followed splits when he was training for contests, the above routine is his current maintenance, I like it though, real simple.
