Jeff King Training Routine
Jeff trained heavy but used only used weights he could do a strict as possible, striving to make each and every rep count.
He did between 7 to 12 sets for each muscle group, with a rep range between 4 to 10.
He rested only 1 to 2 minutes between sets.
He would cycle his poundages and reps, for example doing sets of 4 to 6 reps for one cycle, and then doing sets of 8 to 10 reps for the next cycle. He felt the lighter workouts helped him to recover from the heavier ones and thus avoid over training.
His workout split looked like this:
Day 1 = Chest, Back, Neck and Abs
Day 2 = Thighs, Hamstrings and Calves
Day 3 = Shoulders, Biceps, Triceps, Neck and Abs
Day = Rest day
