Welcome to workout review. I am usually doing game reviews so you probably would not expect this to come from me. I have been in fitness for about three years now. I have done dieting and bulking. I fell on and off the track many times, and the person I always looked up to the most was Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold Schwarzenegger is my lifting idol and was my inspiration to start lifting and training seriously. Although I am nowhere near Arnold, it is good to have a goal.

 I decided to review his chest workout, which I will put at the bottom of this article. His workouts were for isolation work. Being a bodybuilder, you must work specific muscle groups each day of the week. His workout consists of five sets, with six to 10 reps across six major movements.

 It has been a day since I have done the workout, and I must say, it was amazing. Working muscles in isolated groups is something I am no stranger to; however, when you are doing a workout that is by someone you look up to you want to push as hard as you possibly can; I did not want to let Arnold down doing his workout.

The pump from this workout was nice, I could feel my chest twitching after every set. Some of the movements were new to me so I am feeling soreness in some different places. I did, however, have to add some cardio because I am cutting, so cannot be skipping out on that. All in all, this workout was fulfilling and gave me a new sense of ethics to working out. When I was doing the workout, I could only think about Arnold; I could just see his physique every time I closed my eyes so I always pushed harder and harder. 

If you are wanting to try this workout, I recommend you make sure you have some time ’cause this is not a quick one. It took me about an hour and a half to complete, giving it my best. All in all, I give this work out an 8 out of 10.

  • Bench press – 5 sets, 6-10 reps
  • Flat bench flies – 5 sets, 6-10 reps
  • Incline bench press – 6 sets, 6-10 reps
  • Cable crossovers – 6 sets, 10-12 reps
  • Dips – 5 sets, to failure
  • Dumbbell pullovers – 5 sets, 10-12 reps
