Gary Strydom's Workout Routine

* Uses basic movements to hit the big muscle groups. Examples: bent over rows, dumbbell presses and squats. 

Workout Schedule
A typical two weeks in my training break down as per body part/day
Monday:        Legs
Tuesday:       Chest
Wednesday: Back
Thursday:      Back legs
Friday:           Shoulders
Saturday:      Arms
Sunday:         Off

Monday:        Dead lifts
Tuesday:       Chest
Wednesday: Back 
Thursday:      Legs 
Friday:          Shoulders 
Saturday:      Back legs
Sunday:        Arms

Monday:    Off

Repeat from the beginning starting on Tuesday. Let off days fall on any day within this schedule. Let body parts follow the above schedule and repeat for 12 weeks.

* Warm up and do a few sets with a heavy weight. Less reps, of course. Do this until increasing the weight just wouldn't make sense since no further weight can be lifted.

* Now the weight used is decreased and concentration is now on REPS and SPEED.

* Sets are not counted. It maybe up to 20 or 30 sets for large muscle groups and 15 to 20 for the small groups. 

* He strongly suggests supplements and the correct diet in order to get results from his type of training.
