From interview by Osmo Kiiha of The Iron Master (IM).

IM:  "How about a sample routine from the 1950s?"

Reg:  "I didn't have a favorite workout routine.  I have done every routine and every exercise in the book, but like most advanced trainers, I have found what exercises and what routines give me the best results.  What is good for one man isn't necessarily good for somebody else.  My bodyweight fluctuated between 230 and 245 during those years.  Here is a routine I used around 1956-1957 with good results:"

Deltoids and Upper Back

- Press Behind Neck 4-10 Sets, 5 Reps.

- Heavy Bent arm Lateral Raises 5-10 Sets, 10 Reps

At Rippeder.com our focus is on classic physiques from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's but the Mr. Olympia is the pinnacle of all bodybuilding competition and so we look on with support to our fellow bodybuilders. This years' Mr. Olympia featured some great bodybuilders. In the end it was between the best two modern physiques of Kai Green and Phil Heath. The 2013 Mr. Olympia should be interesting with Jay Cutler back in the mix.

Rocky Marciano loved to exercise. 

He trained using a custom made 300lbs punching bag. 

He used a speed bag but not like you would expect, he would hit it with hooks and slow power shots to work on his accuracy.

He would power clean a heavy stone and toss it forward with both hands.

He did crunches that also combined kicking a heavy medicine ball out to the trainer

He liked to run uphill in training (full speed) and then run backwards back down. Did this over and over.

He was known to do two hours of continuous calisthenics.
