There you go, and yes, I feel my chest, tris and thighs. I did everything with the same weight for 10 reps, so it was a bit German Volume style.

It's ok to isolate certain muscle groups, but it takes more time to switch from exercise to exercise and every time you need to zone in. My focus was much better this time Smiley
most guys i know also do a few sets of "Isolation" work with this. 10x10 is good for maybe 8-12 weeks.

what was your rest periods between sets if you maintained the same weight? what was your starting weight ? what % of your max weight did you lift?

I counted slowly till 15, so prob 20 sec. I have no clue about my exact rep maxes, since my lowest sets are 8 reps. I've never did this before, so I picked safe poundages. I did 10x155 for the squats, 10x30 counterweight for the assisted dips and 6(?)x35 pound DB's (so 70 total) for the standing presses. Next time I will add 20-25 to the squat and a few pounds to the DB presses.

last nights workout was chest.. threw in supersets for a Change of pace.

Incline Flyes 3 sets superset with
BB incline press 3 sets

Flat flyes 3 sets superset with
Flat DB bench press 3 sets

Push up bar push ups 2 xmax
Abs: Hanging knee raises 2xmax Dinosaur Training Looks good. I think thatīs more Chaosīs Department. Some of it Looks good and it reminds me of when i was a kid Curling an iron Bar outside in the Garden. Puting Black tape over the nozzle of an air pump (for an air bed) i did not know what Isometrics,Isotonics,Isokinetic Training was. I just pushed it and got slow resistance. Good times . you know when i go running in the Woods i see Long logs stacked up by the Forest workers and have thought about doing some squats with them.

Sounds like an excellent session, sir!

Some of my co-workers gave me a section of telephone pole a few years ago and I would lift, press, carry or whatever with that thing!  It was sooooo freakin' cool but my wife said it smelled awful so...Goodbye to the pole.  I also would do clean and press with a 2 inch bar and curls with either 2" or 3+ " bars.  It got so that my elbows hurt too much with that stuff so I had to stop. 

Another great exercise I used to do on breaks at work was to toss a 3" + piece of brass that was about a foot long several feet into the air.  Back and forth between arms for a hard, fast, intense workout for biceps and grip.  Great fun, believe me.  Later I did the same with a 2" dumbbell in the garage up to 40 or so pounds.  That was over ten years ago.  Damnit!  I hate getting ever more "mature".

yeah another Trainer at the Gym who is middle 40īs does 10x10. he seems to like it. really just the same as 8x8 which Gironda praised..with 15-20 secs rest and not letting go of the bar Grin very tough to do because he said workout no more than 45 mins.  I think the Guy at the gym does a classic 3 Day split  Chest/back..legs...Shoulders/arms.

Sounds like you had fun. Remember just experimenting with things when i was a kid. Like a Young Boy fumbling with his first Girl  Grin Was fun just Lifting anything heavy. when i was 15 i did a milk run before School. 5 am i got picked up and drove round streets delivering milk bottles to houses. was quite physical because you had a carrier of 12 bottles in each Hand and had to run with them. The Driver slowed down and you jumped off the back and run. Had handles fitted on the van to hold onto. i donīt think they allow this nowadays. was like fasted cardio and strength Training. was always in shape. no fat just toned up.

Vince G was pretty extreme with his training & nutrition regimens. Every now and then I read his interviews/articles in Ironman magazine (early nineties when it was a good magazine, not that piece of crap it is today). Imagine him on this forum, damn... RIP Vince
I believe that 45 mins has a near perfect volume/intensity balance, esp with short rest intervals.

2 days later... and my pecs, vastus medialis ('teardrop') and hamstrings are pretty sore. Will I perform those 10x10 deads this evening? Not sure yet...

Guillotine presses are a stable in my trainer's chest routine, so my delts are toasted as well at the end of a workout. All chest work is done on flat benches, which is different from my own workouts.

Mine as well, one of my inspirations when I started training. I saw him 2 times (as guest poser and speaker) during the mid nineties and had a nice chat with him during a local show last year, down to earth & approachable guy.
I've also trained for a short time in the same gym, but only saw Erika Mes, here with Berry de Mey.
