What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I personally like a push/pull routine, of two days on, one day off, one day on, one day off. During mass building I keep my reps between 10-6 and my sets to three for each exercise.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Rachel McLish was my first and foremost idol. She was natural and feminine and muscular. Tom Venuto, Karen Sessions and John Benson have all been a tremendous help to me over the past few years.
