Arnold Schwarzenegger beasted this superset 3 times a week to grow his chest and back in one hit (Video)

It looks pretty tough...

When Arnold Schwarzenegger speaks, it’s always worth a listen.

The Austrian Oak knows a thing or two about training…they don’t just hand out Mr Olympia titles out to any old Joe.

Arnie’s latest nugget of training gold is how he used supersets to grow his chest and back in one go.

He talks about hitting push and pull exercises, like bench press and pull-ups, consecutively in supersets or quadruple sets to add definition and muscle separation to that famous physique.

Arnold followed a high-volume, high-frequency approach, performing this workout three times a week. That’s a lot of reps.
