Arnold Schwarzenegger workout
Doing some research just for fun and it seems Arnold Schwarzenegger started with full body training and ended up by almost splitting it and training with half a fullbody 6 times a week. Does this sound about right? This is the final workout I am talking about:
Arnold Schwarzenegger?s Workout Routine – Muscle and Brawn Bodybuilding, Powerlifting and Muscle Building.
What I find curious about some of the discussion threads across various bodybuilding sites is that a good portion of the comments attack the notion that Arnold used a full body workout at all, but seem to completely ignore the fact that the workout he did use looks much more like full body training than it does a 1980s bodybuilding split.
Am I on target here with my thinking? I doubt want to miss anything.

From my research Arnold was already pretty big before he started using the volume workout he was known for. I don't know how long he used "the Arnold routine", and what his training evolution looked like.
What we do know is this:

Most bodybuilders train much differently than conventional functional and natural weightlifters. I'm surprised Arnold had the basics down minus the bent over rows.
I remember watching Milos Sarcev on the fit show teaching bodybuilding technique. Instead of training with the elbows tucked like most of us do, he recommends you to train with the elbows flared out (very damaging to the shoulder joint) and also trains with the elbows out during overhead pressing which involves more of the anterior deltoids and less of the overall scapula.
I remember hearing Arnold was a huge fan of Arnold Presses and incline dumbell curls.

Glwanabe and I have had this conversation several times, and I don't mean to offend anyone who believes otherwise, but I simply do not believe any lifter should turn a compound movement into more of a isolation movement for the sake of "feel".
Good form is good form.
So many in this industry try to turn isolation movements into compound movements so they can use more iron, and compound movements into isolation movements by changing the lift so they can get a better "feel". I simply don't like this one bit.
