from "How to Gain Weight, Train Hard, Get Massive" by Arnold Schwarzenegger as told to Gene Mozee (Ironman, March 1994)... "Heavy movements stimulate the deep-lying muscle fibers that lighter movements n ever reach. The objective is to use fewer exercises, employ heavier poundages an d train your whole body in one workout. I gained most of my weight and massivene ss on a program of 10 exercises that I performed three times a week. After I rea ched a satisfactory bodyweight, I changed over to the more advanced split system and began training six days a week."
