I'm looking to take my physique and knowledge to the next level and am seriously considering making a big investment in training with a bodybuilding legend. The options open to me are the top 2 bodybuilders of the late '70s, Frank Zane and Robby Robinson. Should I go for the Zane Experience (3-day option) or should I attend Robby's Master Class? Has anyone on the board trained with them in this style before? The cost for both is pretty steep and I don't want to end up wasting my precious money. But both choices look pretty fun to me. After all, not only will I be bodybuilding, I will also be having a legend on hand to train and guide me. What can be better? So should it be San Diego or Venice Beach for my destination?

You should totally dig up Mike Mentzer and pay a marionetter work him, while taking you though the Heavy Duty principles..........

That would be awesome  Grin.

Frank Zane would be my choice..but of course most of us have never met these guys.. best to get an opinion of the pros and ex pros on here who maybe met them in person. I would have loved to have met Steve reeves and trained with him in his Home Gym on his ranch, his routine was nothing special but i would have liked to have just met him.

He was actually a math teacher, but the story has been changed over the years to include chemistry.

Dips, squats, chins, OHP, deadlifts, rows.

What else does one really need, besides calf raises?

C'mon man, don't tell me that you will blow your waist by doing deads. And regarding 'aesthetics', it's one of the best exercises to correct hanging shoulders. I've never felt my rear delts the day after, from any other exercise.

maybe you're right

but my arms suck ass, and my torso is pretty ok, so i need to focus on exercises that give direct work for the arms ie. dips and chins with added weight

deads do nothing for the arms

Well, Zane did have the nickname "The Chemist", and not just because he was a chemistry-teacher...

Then why?

I am in similar boat as you, I need arm size.
My back and shoulders are of very good size/strength, but my chest and arms need some work.  I think I focused far too long on the notion that arms do not direct work.
Well, mine do.

Well, mine do.

this so-called "indirect effect" is very minimal in my experience

i had a pretty bad shoulder injury a few years ago and i held back alot on upper body compound moves for fear of re-injuring it, but lately i got over that fear and now i train the compound moves

i think the key for arm growth will be the weighted dips and chins, and in particular the chins

the size that i have added recently has mostly been on my quads from the full squats

I have the same problem with my arms, esp with my triceps. But what would happen when you perform only rows for the back, just because it stimulates your bi & brachialis? You can't train your back to its max because your arms are your weakest link in that particular movement. So in short, focus on exercises where your target muscle is your weakest link, not a supporting muscle. I hope this makes sense  Smiley

yeah it does, but according to Mr. N then i'll be even more out of proportion ie. torso>arms

i think the weighted chins will be the answer, but we'll see

You got to work with what you got was Franco as tall as Arnold? So work the weak points maintain the rest until weak points come up. I had zero calves but worked the hell out of them then they came around. DP is correct on this.

No worries for that, that would only happen when you just started training. The longer you train, the slower your progress. BTW, I don't believe that hypertrophy occurs 100% locally; there's always tention/stimulation of other muscle groups.
Regarding weighted chins, most folks aren't able to perform chins with a full ROM and a slow negative (I'm not an exception on this  Undecided) , but there's nothing wrong with some extra weight in case you're an exception to this.
