This is a 5-day split routine the Rock allegedly followed when he was preparing for the shooting of “The Scorpion King”. Yeah, sure: we might never know if it is true or not. Nevertheless, it’s worth a try, once it was associated with the Rock :) If he really used this plan, one thing is for sure: he trained only one muscle (group) per day so he could bomb his muscles with maximum focus. Well, this is definitely something we agree with.
