I would be willing to bet that he started out and used a fullbody routine for a long time before hitting this type of cycle.

A quick Q? Here. NOW you all reolize the last month and majorly last peek week you work out totaly diffrent than the rest of the year.

NOW are we talking about his weeks right before his show or during his bulk / more than a month pre show? There is a big diffrence for sparing muscle, saving glucagins stores and yet burn fat and keeping muscles tone.

If you want to follow a bbers bulk/building rutein you need to look at what he did 2-3 months post a show.

Franco is one lift who I know little about.

I know much is made of Arnold's style of training, but few realize Arnold was already very big long before he did a style of training like what he and Franco did.

But as for Franco, his training practices are a mystery to me. He had much better density than Arnold, at least in my eyes.

Ya he didn't spend as much time in the US as Arny did.
and his beginings like others of the time frame were documented untill after they had a base and was hitting it hard on tweeking body parts.
Most of them started in late teen but didn't start the documented/publishing work outs till in there late 20's early 30's, but guys want to do these work outs after 1 year or even first year lifting and that just don't work. lol Media is good but it can also hurt just to sell. Thats one thing I love about M&B. It is said as it is NOT paint it pretty and stroke people just to sell or get bigger. Straight forward and real.

I think the 7th day of each week is a rest day. Even Franco allowed himself one day off it seems.
