Gable Boudreaux

Gable Paul Boudreaux competed in the 1960's at a time when bodybuilding was just starting to come into its own. The decade changed bodybuilding forever, motivated by great bodybuilders and strength coaches like Vince Geronda. Together with Rheo Blair they were both years ahead of their time and have changed the sport permanently.

Gable Boudreaux only stood 5'5" tall but when he tried to sign-up for the U.S Marines and was told by his Navy recruiters that he was "underweight and anemic" Gable decided to do something about it and started to pump iron. After a few years he had picked up some serious muscle and won Mr. Gulf Coast in 1962.

Competing at around 163lbs Gable found his training plateau and he knew that he needed guidance on how to get bigger so he moved to California, the mecca of bodybuilding. Gable joined Vince Geronda's gym where he not only got exposed to volume training but using Rheo Blair's high protein, low carb ideas. He also used Rheo's protein and amino acid supplements and he had great success with them.

Gable went on to win Mr. International in 1965, Mr. Los Angeles and Mr. America in 1966 and then won Mr. Los Angeles again a year later in 1967. Gable eventually met up with Larry Scott who was also training at Vince's gym, he took the advice that Larry offered very seriously and his body showed a marked improvement in a very competitive bodybuilding world.

At the Mr. International contest in 1965 Gable won the overall plus best arms, best back and the most muscular at that competition. He placed a very close second a year later in the Mr. California contest, but competed for a year later winning Mr. Los Angeles, he then he retired.

His training was intense, just like his hero Larry Scott he would do between 8-10 reps on each set but he would do plenty of sets. Doing 3 or 4 movements for each body-part and sometimes as much as 10 sets on each movement is a lot of volume. Gable would train six days a week working a split routine training each body-part twice.

The Deltoids, triceps and biceps workout listed below is an example of the type of workout Gable would do twice a week. It takes practice to work up to this amount of volume, doing 60 sets in one workout is tough in anyone's book.
