Vince, I read so much bull all the time in the magazines. Everybody says something different.
Give it to me straight. Should I keep on experimenting or is there really a secret routine?
OK, so listen carefully. Il’l say it once. You should always give a new routine a chance to work. At least three months. When I was competing I believed absolutely in giving a routine nine (9) months to work.
It seemed that something magical started to work on or about the ninth month. Gains not previously seen appeared.
Just as mysteriously working on a routine longer than nine months often ceases to be productive. Perhaps boredom comes along.
There is no secret routine but there sure is a good general routine. I have found that using one exercise per given body part for eight sets of eight reps is a particularly workable concept.
It’s a reliable, well proven routine that will always give you something worthwhile in results. It will keep your muscles honest.
8 sets of 8 gets your muscles cookin’ pretty good.
