    Do you mean "The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding?"

    That's like the Bible man! Packed with great info and Arnold's stories are the best...

    Exactly what made this guide "great" for non-competitive, natural builders???
    I still have to find those who followed his 12-15 sets per bodypart routine and got good results with it. Indulge me, if you can.

    The volume is slightly high, but mostly the frequency. good grief. I use a toned down version of his program and that has been the basis of my physique. You do the whole thing like he says hitting chest 3 times a week ect and you will die a slow death - probably even if you are on steroids. Arnold was a freak.

    Those routines in the book are off the hook, but if approached with common sense are very effective.

    right now i am taking his chest routine and using it once a week, (with some added lifts to bring up the intensity) and his back routine on back day,( with some added lifts) and arm routine on arm day ETC. eather way i only work a muscle group out once a week. i just incorporate his workouts into them because i believe that they could be quite effective.

    Sorry to bump an old post, but I just got a free gift card for Borders and saw some people recommend this book.

    Is there a difference between the paperback version and the hardcover?

    Hardcover says revised and published in like 1998 while I see Barnes and Noble has a paperback that says it was published in 2007.

    I'd prefer the hardcover but if the paperback has newer revised information then I guess I'd have to go with the paperback...
