It's not that easy and it really kicks your ass. And because of that...I it. The amount of volume and work you do per workout is pretty intense. I did the modified Bill Starr routine while cutting and I'm doing the Arnold routine now while bulking...that being said, I'm getting a lot more exhausted on Arnold's routine than when I was at a deficit on the Starr routine. I'm going to use this routine for 6 months or so and see where I'm at. I'm looking to add a lot of muscle mass and to have nice balance. BTW, here's the routine for those of you who don't know it: Everything is in this rep scheme, 1x15 (warmup), 1x10-12, 1x8-10, and 1x6 (power set) unless otherwise noted. The goal is to use a weight that makes you fail on the last rep or so of each set...not fun Workout #1 Bench Press Incline Press Pullovers Chin-ups (as many sets as you can until you hit 50) Bent-over rows Power Training: Deadlifts - 10, 6, and 4 reps all to failure Crunches 5x25 Workout #2 Barbell Clean and Press DB lateral raises Power Training: Heavy upright rows: 10-6-4 to failure Push presses: 6-4-2 to failure Standing BB curls Seated DB curls Close-grip presses Standing tri extension w/ BB Wrist curls Reverse wrist curls Reverse crunches 5x25 Workout #3 Squats Lunges Leg Curls Standing calf-raises 5x15 Power training: SLDL's 10-6-4 to failure GM's 10-6-4 to failure Crunches 5x25 You do each workout twice a week ie: Monday - #1 Tues - #2 Wed -#3 Thurs - #1 Fri - #2 Sat - #3 Sun - off Workout #2 is the hardest.
