Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Why is the program based on The Silver Era?


The Silver Era Blueprint is a program designed for those passionate about the early years of bodybuilding. The Silver Era Blueprint is based on early bodybuilding techniques which focus on training smart and allowing enough time to recover in between workouts. This program is sustainable, achievable, and most importantly, optimal for natural bodybuilders. Research has shown that training each muscle group 2-3x per week is optimal for muscle growth, and that’s what this program does. We’re moving away from the idea that more volume equals more muscle gain and using a smarter approach to training. 


The Silver Era offers the only true guide we have for natural bodybuilding. Most bodybuilders today sell workout programs focused on body part splits and high volume, which is only optimal for enhanced bodybuilders. Steroids allow you to push more volume and recover much faster, so your training program looks a lot different. The Silver Era program is for those pursuing aesthetics over pure mass. If your goal is to look like Ronnie Coleman, this isn’t the workout for you. 


Why should we buy a program from The Bodybuilding Archive?


The Silver Era Blueprint has been created by two personal trainers with decades of experience. The program has been tested, tweaked, and reworked on many occasions. This is the final edition. Whilst the program has been created by licensed Personal Trainers, we are also bodybuilding historians. As mentioned, the workout is based on the principles of Silver Era bodybuilders, with some changes made to fine-tune each phase of development. Many years have been spent studying bodybuilders and their training techniques, and this is a culmination of that research. The program is one hundred percent created by The Bodybuilding Archive but based on the foundations made from early bodybuilding icons. 


Who is the program for?


This program is for novice lifters and experienced bodybuilders. The principles of The Silver Era Blueprint are based on natural bodybuilders from the early days. This routine is not revolutionary. This is a remodeling of old-school workouts brought forward into the modern day. Some of the techniques in this book will be new to even the most experienced bodybuilders. Unless you’ve researched The Silver Era in great depth, this workout will be something different for you. 


I work long hours and don’t have a lot of time to train, is this program right for me?


The Silver Era Blueprint includes three weight lifting sessions a week so is perfect if you have a busy schedule. As long as you’re getting adequate rest and recovery, you can schedule the workouts on days that suit your routine. Rest days are focused on active recovery (cardio & abs). Although this is great to do, it’s not essential. As long as you can commit to three weight lifting sessions a week as a minimum, this program is for you. This program will have you training less, yet building more muscle than you have before. 


I like to train more frequently, can I add more workouts in?


It’s not recommended. The Silver Era Blueprint has three heavy lifting days per week, with a day of recovery in between each workout. Natural bodybuilders need this time to recover. We’re allowing for 48 hours of recovery after every workout to ensure we’re growing as much as possible, and able to exert maximum output in the gym. If done correctly, the workouts should be so intense and draining that you don’t feel the desire to work out until the next scheduled training session.


The philosophy behind the program is more is not better. Additional workouts will more than likely hinder your progress, not improve it. You’ll be overtraining and not allowing the body to recover, resulting in fatigued muscles and poor output when in the gym. 


Can I change the exercises?


The Silver Era Blueprint is based on training principles from the early days of bodybuilding. As such, the equipment needed is very basic. Any gym with free weights will have sufficient equipment for you to complete the full 12-week cycle. If essential, you can change some of the exercises for similar alternatives. In this case, make sure you pick the closest possible option. There is a science behind the programming and it’s important you follow along as close to the original plan as possible.
