40!!! one of the best routines in my opinion only has 15 working sets 3 days a week
see what i meen though 40 sets will just kill this guys who really want to be weightlifter but when the beginer gains go away and they are still doing 40 sets 5 days a week they will start to lose there new found strength and stop lifting.
I'm sure a routine like that would work for ronnie or cutler or yates but for everyone else no. Even guys who do juice that might be to much.
Though i know guys who weight 5 and 6 days a week and make great gains who are natural but they only work one group and its uselly 3 lifts for3x15 or something close.
I'm saying all this but then you have guys like john bronz(i think is his name) whos has his guys work up to max effort everyday on squats and olympic lifts and make great progress.
