"Train each body part twice a week, as hard and relentless as possible each time. Every second week, I'd dead-lift after my leg routine. My dead lift workout was 300 for five reps, 400 for five reps, 500 for five reps, 600 for two or three reps, 650 for one rep and 700 for one rep."

When Stallone first came to Franco to begin training, he was 170 pounds and very well defined. But he didn’t feel he was big enough and wanted to put on 10 pounds of muscle in six weeks. Franco knew how hard Stallone was capable of training, so he decided that was a feasible goal.
