Franco Columbu’s Training Routine


Written by admin

Topics: Advanced, Beginners





Train each bodypart twice a week, as hard and relentless as possible each time.

“Train each bodypart twice a week, as hard and relentless as possible each time. Every second week, I’d deadlift after my leg routine. My deadlift workout was 300 for five reps, 400 for five reps, 500 for five reps, 600 for two or three reps, 650 for one rep and 700 for one rep.”
