Ken McCord trained 4 days a week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The week days were split workouts so in the morning at 5:30am he trained upper body then at night he would do lower body, this would be done on all 3 days.

Sundays were a basic all round light workout which would have been great for recovery. He was also a brown belt in Karate and ran 1 to 2 miles most days. Bodybuilders in those day tended to be a little more interested in being athletic.

The lifts mostly used were the basic bodybuilding movements of the day, with a variety of exercises used per body part to hit them from all angles. He also changed his routines every 4 to 6 weeks to keep shocking his muscles.

Below is one of John Grimek's workout for putting on weight and strength.

For those of you who don't know who John Grimek is here some information from http://www.schwarzenegger.it/mro/grimek.html: "John Carroll Grimek is the only man ever to win the AAU Mr. America title more than once. His wins in 1940 and 1941 were so overwhelming that contest organizers from then on implemented the single-victory rule.

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:
