Whoa. His routine. Check out squat day. Imagine maxing out your bar at your gym! Holy Moly.

Do you follow a specific training schedule or program?
I try to focus on the core lifts, not so much on the auxiliaries. My week looks like this:
Monday – Deadlift, all sumo from the floor.
Tuesday – Squat, usually it looks something like this:
3155
4051
5001
6001
700 55
I want to work up to 510 at 700 because the gym I work out in, the bars aren’t long enough for more weight, that’s all I can get on there. Whatever I can get on there, I can’t let myself get comfortable with it, so I’m trying to add reps every week since I can’t add weight.
Wednesday – Bench Press:
Right now I don’t bench enough for my bodyweight, so I have to get to where I can rep 450 comfortably for 5 reps for multiple sets. I do multiple sets of 5 until I’m comfortable with a weight. I strained something in my arm and right shoulder and if I get out too wide, it hurts, so I try to keep my grip narrow.
Thursday – Rest
Friday – This is for all my auxilary work that make me better on my core lifts. My favorites? Curls and Tris! I’ve done biceps and tris every day for the last few weeks. I have to get my arms up.
Saturday – I just go in and loosen up and do a little cardio.
Sunday – Rest

Talk about basic. Hard to believe he got so strong this way. Where's his wobble board work? I mean come on, no box squats? No fancy rep schemes? How's he gonna sell this to the masses?

Sarcasm alert!!
