    I'm also doing Muay Thai Kickboxing 4 days a week so thats good cardio along with 2 miles everyday... but yeah... When and how far into the workout should i take a week off??
    and isn't that overtraining? Thanks!

    i'm a big believer that people are to afraid of overtraining these days...but that is crazy.

    If your doing a lot of other activity such as the kickboxing and running i would recomend checking out "Westside for Skinny Bastards". That is a solid program for people in your situation.

    There is only one Arnold. What works for The Arnold may be a bit much for us mere humans.

    that workout will work for you if you have arnolds genetics, his diet, his sleep pattern, his outlook on life, his agression, and his drug use.

    i suppose ill keep it simple. instead of cereal just get a big box of dbol-o's. pour a big bowl full of dbol-o's and add milk. once you get down that 500mgs of dbol a day, you should be ready for arnolds workout.

    Something to keep in mind.. those crazy splits work wonders for Pro BBer's because of the incredible genetics and most importantly, the Pharmaceuticals. Looks to me like you're trying to put 20 gallons of gas in a 10 gallon tank..

    Go for it, shock your system for awhile, Arnold says sometimes he would work out 2-3 hours in the morning, then come back and night and do the same. Six days a week is good....

    and isn't that overtraining? Thanks!
    dont do this workout, first off, unless you are juiced there is absolutely no way your body can recover from this workout eventually leading to overtraining.

    arnold was juiced and was able to do more intense and have more volume in his workouts.

    you should stick to a basic strength routine.

    Bro, take the suggestions of the others, don't do that workout. If you don't get injured within the first month you will feel like horse **** because your body is in a constant state of trauma because you have not allowed ample time to recover.

    But hey if you really want to try it then go for it. I am not one to stop people from trying. ( I hope you are running a cycle if you do try it)

    MAX-OT all the way man. Go check it out. It simplifies the overly complicated art of building muscle. It makes sense, no bull****. You lift heavy and hard and keep the time spent in the gym short and sweet. There is only 1 thing that builds muscle...overload.

    For the majority of athletes, that "Arnold's work out" would be an overkill. And unnecessary.
