Default George Turner Full Body Workout

The September 2001 issue of Ironman Magazine had a George Turner full body routine. If I remember correctly he gained a ton of strength and muscle mass on this program. Does anyone have this article? If so would you post the routine. I think lots of folks on this forum would be interested. Thanks!

Doing some research. Bare with my posts.

Reference on Iron Man:

Quote:
Q: In George Turner's September '01 IRONMAN article 'Full-Body Blast,' he says he used a whole-body routine for the first eight years he worked out and gained 90 pounds. Do you honestly think that a whole-body routine like the one he outlines can work?

A: Whole-body workouts are great'and they can work wonders on your body'but to get the most out of them you have to have the right mind-set, which means motivation to the hilt. It takes a lot of fortitude to go to the gym and work every bodypart at each session, especially in the manner Turner suggests. He said his workouts took about two hours each, which is six hours of training a week. .

It appears this fullbody was volume heavy. A quote from CS Sloan.

Quote:
I think it's mistakenly believed that bodybuilders of the past trained so frequently (usually 3x weekly for each bodypart) because they simply didn't know any better. But, if you were to ask the great Bill Pearl if he would change the way he used to train considering all the new "knowledge" about recovery, he would flatly tell you, "no." The same goes for longtime Iron Man contributor George Turner. He's seen it all, and done it all, and still believes frequent, volume-oriented training is better.

I believe this is a piece of what you are looking for:

Quote:
Which reminds me of an old Iron Man article I once read by the aging-but-still-great George Turner. For putting on muscle mass, he recommended a regimen of barbell curls, bench presses, and squats for 10 sets of 10 reps performed Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Once you had plenty of size, then you could start using multiple exercises.

High-intensity pundits and other briefer-is-better lifters in our era would call those kind of workouts performed by Turner and my uncle "crazy." Perhaps, however, there's a little more to it. Perhaps they know something a lot of others don't realize: frequent training, plus hard work, plus full-body workouts equals big-time results.

It's always fun for me to research a name I have never heard. Sometimes I think I have heard them all

I came across this but it may not be what you're after:


Another great program you may not be familiar with comes from Ironman contributor George Turner. Much like GVT, the Turner routine is based on high volume, except higher intensities are used (due to the use of RM loads). Here's the program as it was outlined in his Real Bodybuilding audiotape series in the nineties.


Turner Routine (a.k.a. HUGE! Program)

Day 1 Chest & Back

1. Bench Press

2 warm-up sets (15,12 reps) followed by 10 sets x 10 reps

drop 10 pounds every 2 sets

2. Wide-Grip Pull-Ups

2 warm-up sets (15,12 reps) followed by 10 sets x 10 reps

decrease load every 2 sets

Day 2 Legs

1. Full Squats

2 warm-up sets (15,12 reps) followed by 6 sets x 10 reps

2. Lying Leg Curls

2 warm-up sets (15,12 reps) followed by 6 sets x 10 reps

3. Standing Calf Raise

2 warm-up sets (15,12 reps) followed by 10 sets x 10 reps

decrease load every 2 sets

4. Bent-Knee Deadlifts

perform 6 sets x 6 reps

pyramid weight (add weight each set)

Day 3 Off

Day 4 Delts & Arms

1. Seated DB Press (pronated)

2 warm-up sets (15,12 reps) followed by 8 sets x 10 reps

2a. Seated DB Curls (no back support)

1 warm-up set of 15 reps followed by 8 sets x 8 reps

superset with

2b. Lying Triceps Extensions (hands 6" apart)

1 warm-up set of 15 reps followed by 8 sets x 12 reps

Day 5 Off

(One word of advice: try not to plan much after leg day. Trust me!)
