German Volume Training?

No I'm not cambodian
Whatever floats your boat mate, I haven't used a high volume training method as of yet but would like to in the future. This looks as good as any I have seen or read about.

I have heard great things about GVT as long as you keep the weight heavy. One thing to be prepared for though is your sessions taking a long time.

10x10 is pretty hardcore.

its only 60 seconds rest between. So it wouldn't take too long.

How can you keep the weight heavy.. the first few sets are meant to be quite easy and then it gets quite hard from what ive read. And meant to use only about 60% of your 1rm or so.

Has anyone tried this?

60% of your true 1rm is still quite heavy. I was more talking about people who drop the weight right down to 60kg for example when their 1rm is 150kg.

60% of my 1rm would be 10x10 117.5kg... Thats pretty heavy in my books lol.

I can safely say there is no way I could do 10x10 of an exercise like squats or deads. Not at 60%.

Maybe bench, or something smaller. But deads and squats just totally fuck me. 5x5 is enough for me lol.

did you see good gains though? Legs?

Squats and deads it was like near impossible....I used it more for bench when I was trying for an aussie jr bench record...I would mix that into my training cycles here and there....worked well and the strength I got was great...

High volume is great for legs
Since I've stopped cycling my legs have shrank 1.6" in total even though I was squatting 3x a week
Mostly glycogen I suspect

High volume for legs worked better for me than dropping the volume did, GVT is high volume. Will be using it for front squats. Back squats will be 4 sets x 7 reps. This is on upper lower program btw 2 lower sessions a week, will be doing this when i go back to bulking in 2 months or so.

Rate it?
