He said: "I always did stretch between sets.
"I don’t think that many people do that.

"So, it sort of gives it a completion and it keeps blood in the muscle too."

The weightlifting veteran also claimed off-season training was important for remaining in tip-top shape.
He said: "My training was sort of paced like that I'd say during those late spring months I was training more with heavier weights with longer rest periods, and then the late summer early autumn I’d be training quite faster with less rest between sets."
However, Frank also said success in the gym came down to having a good outlook.
He said: "I would say the perfect physique is one that has really great proportions where everything matches, and no one thing stands out, it all blends together.
"I worked up to 1000 reps a day, and my abs got real deep.
"Then my back, I did a lot of back work to bring out a lot of definition in the back."
Another highly decorated bodybuilding veteran has revealed the trick he used to get an edge on his opponents.
