You know, I often wondered about that too! 3 days a week with those sessions would kill most people. I assumed it was artistic lisence or just exaggeration.
However, we maybe meant to do all reps and sets the same for each week, and add weight the next week. Or even add weight after two weeks once you felt the weights were easy enough.
Lord knows Marvin must have been under those guidelines! Otherwise he'd have been Mr. Olympia instead of Arnold.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.
Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
