Ronnie strongly believed that you need to do reps to build muscle and trained using warm-up sets of 25 reps and only went as low as 8 reps on a few exercises.
Ronnie stressed the importance of doing 30 reps and even more when doing leg extensions and calves. When it comes to pain Ronnie was not shy of going past failure.
Ronnie himself admits that the most difficult task that any bodybuilder has when trying to increase your strength is to know the difference between too much weight and not enough weight. He says the art of any successful bodybuilder is to know how your body responds to weight.

Deadlifts, 4 sets – 6-12 reps
Barbell rows, 3 sets – 10-12 reps
