Sly trains fast, moving from exercise to exercise without rest. Not only does this get him muscular, but it conditions him, as well. The following biceps, forearms, and triceps routines should each be done for 4-5 cycles without rest. This will ensure maximum muscle growth so you can start building guns like the big boys.
