Gunter Schlierkamp's Training Program for the 2005 Mr. Olympia*

Notes from Gunter: This workout is the one I used in 2005 for the Mr. Olympia. It gave me great results for getting in shape and keeping the size. Cardio is added after every workout for 30-45min (treadmill or bike). I keep my heart rate around 120bm, to avoid losing muscle. On days off I do 45-60 minutes of cardio. The workouts are not longer than one hour. You want to stay anabolic not catabolic. The weight is not important to me. I just go as heavy as I can that day. I feel with the way how I have the reps I train all muscle fibers.
