He trained each body part three times a week, using three to four exercises doing twenty sets of eight to twelve reps for each muscle group.
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays he worked his chest, back and shoulders.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays he worked his arms, thighs and calves.
He also trained his abdominals every day for going as high as one hundred reps for each ab exercise.
