Yeah, Arnie is great.

I used to do lotsa weights, and the books he did were good, solid advice.

Arnie is cool his books are [censored] awful. Some of the worst advice around really.

[/ QUOTE ]

The basics in the Bible are still solid, I'm sure. And the other books I've read of his are typically cut-downs from the Bible. Maybe you've read others.

It's packed away, and I'm saying this from memory, but it runs through all the basic exercise moves still used today, instructs on warm-up and warm-down, goes through the patterns of reps/sets still used today, so what's to be awful?

What, you think solid weight-training advice is trumped by 7-minute abs and sht like that? Or you need some inspirational horse crap to get them weights moving?

Translated the Socialist party and Green party are ashamed of him.
On a recent radio show the majority of Austrians who phoned in said that although they did not support the death penalty they still supported Arnold and the fact that he was upholding a court decision.

diebitter and Jihad,

The primary issue with the book is that it recommends way too many sets and movements for the non enhanced athlete. This is of course an understandable problem because Arnold, like ALL competitive bodybuilders was far from a natural.

Outside of that problem, and especially considering the time of release, the book is phenomenal. The vast coverage and pictures make it worth buying even today.

Yeah, possibly, can't remember his suggested routines, so I'll concede. I'm pretty sure I used to do something like a full routine from this book though, even as beginner/intermediate level, so it wasn' THAT hard.

The actual movements described, rep/set structures (assuming 3 or possibly 4 sets, each heavier and less reps than the last), warm-up/warm-down advice is still solid though, huh?

And still make this book worthwhile (as you rightly say).

diebitter,

Absolutely, considering the time of release and the way the concepts were all put in one place, it was a great book and the advice can still be beneficial.

If you get a chance to dust off your old copy, take a look through the workouts, especially the intermediate and advanced ones.
