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.
It was a Hany Rambod workout. I actually have it on MAB:

FST-7 Five Day Training Split By Hany Rambod - Muscle and Brawn Bodybuilding, Powerlifting and Muscle Building.

Arm and abs day has 47 sets I believe...

Regarding Broz...they aren't doing a ton of rep work (that I know of). Most Olympic style lifts don't involve a heavy eccentric price. Eccentrics are really the most taxing aspect of major lifts.

Of course, back squatting frequently each day involves eccentrics, but they are certainly not doing 400+ reps each day like the Flex workouts. Not that it isn't taxing in its own right...obviously it is.
