    Most people say that having good abs is 90% diet. I say it's 90% lighting lol

    I'm not as big as Ronnie Coleman, but I CAN wipe my own ass.

    5'11", 183 pounds, appr. 7-8% body fat
    Arms - 15.25
    Forearms - 12"

    I thought it was all really random and short. So nothing like a "typical" routine. But I'm not sure, I would like to know myself.

    I think his question has merit. Time and time again, we tell people that just about any workout that contains an emphasis on compound movements will build anybody up. the difference between great and good is diet, rest and nutrition along with dedication and genetics. that's why when you see threads like "what does this guy do?" it becomes laughable. You will not look like that guy. Hell you might even look better than he does when you do your own thing. I can't tell how many times that these same bodybuilders whose routines you want to try have said "the physique is made in the kitchen, in the bed and in your dedication. what happens in the gym provides only the stimulus."

    great post gjoe, repped for that one mate
    and i agree 110% about the kitchen statement, and unfortunately i know from experience how true it holds since the one thing holding me back is my diet, just cant get it right with no one to blame but myself unfortunately.

    either way just wanted to say good post mate

    A subject I know. I had the opportunity of working in with, not working out with, Steve when he would drop in at Bert Goodrich's Hollywood Heath Spa in the 50's. I was a skinny teenager trying to gain muscle for the high school wrestling team. He was a complete gentleman and liked to help kids like myself. His workouts were rather long and random. My favorite recollection is doing behind the neck seated Smith machine military presses with Steve and Bill Smith (the guy the machine was named after because he spent so much time with it). I also remember him doing very heavy leg presses, weighted chins and dips and one arm curls. The gym was crowded, hot, humid and dusty with chalk. No music allowed in those days. Just noisy bravado and klanking of iron. Oh, and no females, cardio or casual trainers anywhere...just muscleheads. Steve WAS the man in those days. Mickey Hargaty (the man Arnold played in his first movie break) was also a member.

    I can't believe that trainning the whole body 3 times a week, there is much grow. The body needs rest to grow, so while you add more and more intensity in your workouts, your body will demand more time to recover. That is it! See you later!

    If you wanna have Steve's physique (which looked really good IMO), just train like a natural bodybuilder, and if you got resonable genetics and a pretty face you'll probably look a bit like him after several years.

    volume, frequency do not equal intensity.

    if you're doing lower intensity work, with lower volume, you can easily do high frequency such as this. read up on HST

    I believe that his neck, arms, and calves all measured in at approx 18.5 inches. I read something along those lines somewhere.

    No, he did cardio. He power walked for thirty minutes in the morning 3-4 times a week, though not during his 1950 Mr. America win. His diet was probably the main reason for his definition though.
