Does one exercise per body part work?
I met a guy at the gym who does only one exercise per body part and he is huge and very ripped. He has been working out for long time though. He is also purely natural does not even take supplements. His protein mainly comes from Eggs, Soya and chicken.
On asking him about his workouts. He says he like to keep it simple and does only one exercise per body part and works out each part twice a week and exercises 6 days a week.
He follows a pyramidical approach to working out. On his way up he does REPS of 10,8,6,4,2 and continues to add weight and then he reduces weight for each set and increases the REPS from 2,4,6,8,10.
His program looks like :
- Monday : Bench Press, Skull crushers, Pull overs.
- Tuesday : Overhead Press, Squats OR Deadlift
- Wednsesday : T-Bar Rows, Shrugs and Preacher curls.
Repeats the same and takes a day off on sunday.
He does his AB Work every morning at home. He also changes his program every 3 months. Keeps the program same but changes the exercises.
Does this routine make sense? Can it add both add size and make someone ripped?
