    Full body

    So I've been doing a Push/legs/pull routine for 2 years now and going to switch things up. Going to start a fullbody, as we all know the great old school legends like Reg Park, John Grimeck, Steve Reeves, Leroy Colbart, Paul Grant, Armand Tanny, Vince Gironda, and even Arnold all got amazing physiques form a full body workout.

    In the 1950 and 60's it was all full body, it was until the 70's and steroid usage that people began to use splits. In fact Joe Weider is the one who made splits popular as he started publishing and promoting splits in his magazine, everyone jumped on the bandwagon and the full body was left in the dust.

    Found this interesting article of Paul Grant's Mass program.

    So i clicked the link and a quick look showed 41 sets of exercises. I don't know about your fitness level but 41 sets is a ton and unless you are ready for it, it may be a bit too much. Good luck!
    sums it up a thread will start off promising and then turn into name calling..
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.

    Hell no I won't be doing 41 sets! It's good template with the list of exercises that can be modified. I just love old school bodybuilding and thought the article was interesting.

    I will start with 3 sets of each exercise for the first 2 months, then increase to 4 on some.

    "If it aint broke, don't fix it"
    You've posted a string of great progress videos, what are you fixing?
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
    Diet restarted, target 69.x Kg, progress poor so far :(

    Of course full body was the go-to routine before steroids. We knew that but you continued to bash a full body routine so it will be interesting to see what you think of it now that you actually want to try it.
    Bodybuilding is much more than an hour in the gym a few days a week---it's a lifestyle that changes all your perceptions about how to live, eat, and rest. It feeds the mind as much (and sometimes more so) than the body.
