It almost not certain to hear about Frank Zane in bodybuilding circles. In the 1970s, he won the Olympia three years consecutively. He was later replaced by the most famous bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger. People still admire Zane’s physique even though he has been forgotten by the current generation.

You need to include a lot of proteins in your diet to repair the damaged muscles. Zake experimented with both light and heavy weights weights to attack muscle fibres. To stimulate muscle movement he used rep range as low as 8. He said that such low rep range helped with keeping his size better. When he used high rep to pump his muscles, the size would evaporate and ended up the same way he started.High rep range would make no difference on his muscles. It is unfortunate that his love for weights wore down his body. His shoulders developed complications. Due to heavy dead lifts, his lower back developed complications.
Fear to cause more damage on his knees and back made him give up on doing heavyweights in the late 1980s. Zane began to come up with some methods to fasten his progress in search of body perfection. He began visualizing on mind and body connection instead of just focusing on working in his muscles. He found importance of both concentration and weights during training. He would close his eyes and imagine the weights were there; this helped him isolate the muscles and stimulate growth.
