Old School Workout From The 70’s


Have you ever wanted to have one of those ‘chiseled’ bodies all the big names in the bodybuilding industry had during the 70’s? Well, maybe you can, you just have to be prepared to do some exercises differently and to embrace the old program that they used.

In this article, we will cover the 10 most important exercises these stars used to get jacked, we will give you a sample workout program which follows their regime and we will discuss some general guidelines regarding the program overall. It’s essential to read through this entire list in order to fully understand how the 70’s workout regime works. Let’s get to it then!

1. Wide-grip chins

Wide-grip chins (and chins in general) have fallen out of popularity over the past couple of decades. People have simply turned to new exercises, expecting somewhat different results – for some reason, everyone’s doing lat pulldowns now. Not only are lats more popular, but people have almost completely forgotten about the existence of chins, even though they were nearly treated as a religion back in the day. All the top names in the bodybuilding business did chins, and they did lots and lots of them.

If you want to try them out, go for the full challenge by supersetting chins with bench presses. It’s really a kick for your muscles and you will feel the pumping heat in just a couple of reps. That’s what Arnie and the other boys used to do when bodybuilding was still an everyday thing. And if you’re going to believe anyone about how to work on your body, bodybuilders from the 70’s are the ones you should listen to.
