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.

Bill Star's 5X5 program has spawned many variations over the years but his workout is still highly regarded. Before Bill Star of course there was Reg Park whose 5X5 program inspired Arnold Schwarzenegger and helped Arnold build his size and strength. Bill Star's program is different in that it focuses on what he called the "big three": bench press, power clean and squats. He also utilizes shoulder press, dead lift and other exercises to completely strengthen the body. He also had heavy, medium and light training days. Check out his highly regarded workouts below.

I came across this video on youtube and thought it was informative and interesting, so I thought I'd share it with my Rippeder fans. In this episode of Ric's Corner Ric Drasin discusses steroid use by bodybuilders in the 1970's and current use by pros today. He also gives advice on training. Ric Drasin was Arnold's training partner for four years. He is an artist, actor, stuntman, writer, personal trainer, former bodybuilder, and retired professional wrestler.

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:
