Just do DB rows, and do Stiff legged deads alternate lifts.

On to German Volume Training-type work for a while.

I've got some tendon and other soft tissue pains from going heavy the last few months. I made decent size and strength gains, but it's time to switch to something a little more forgiving on my body. I'll be utilizing cumulative overload rather than relying on raw weight to stress the muscles.

I spent the last two weeks experimenting to get the weights right for the different lifts. For large, compound movements, I'll be doing 10x10. For smaller "isolation" work, I'll be doing 5x12.

Inter-set rest will start at 1:10 and decreased by 10-second increments once the target number of reps is reached on all sets.

I expect that to be the case starting in the next week or so. My intensity has been off a bit as I've been trying to establish my starting point for each lift. Seems I've been starting with too light a weight in most cases. I've happily gained much more strength than I thought since I last used GVT.

For compound, how do you select the weight?   Is it the same poundage for each set - i.e. that max you can lift 10 x 10?

Could you give a sample of your GVT training exercises, and how many days per week?  How important is it for you to do smaller movements, rather than only compounds?

The same weight is used for all ten sets, and should be heavy enough that you struggle to complete the last rep(s) of the last set. That is where experimentation becomes necessary.

Hey, friend:
Long time, no talk.

Seated military presses, flat-bench db press, and bent-over rows are examples of the compounds I like for the 10x10. I currently train each body part directly once every 5-6 days depending on my work schedule, which now includes lots of variance and overtime.

Ancillary work is done for completeness. I.e., I use straps for back work to place as much focus as possible on the back and less on my bi's/forearms. Curls and grip work fill that gap.
Similarly, most of my direct triceps work employs extension movements like overhead extensions and skull-crushers to work the the longer tricipital heads neglected in pure pressing movements.

Got it - so the first sets feel insanely easy and you think you went too light, than it can catch you.  I like this, since I'm generally stuck in the 4-6 rep range.  This might be a good refresher.

Yes, the first 3 or so sets feel like a complete waste of time, which adds a great deal to the deception of this protocol. Also, many trainers' egos will not permit them to be seen handling the (lighter) weights this method requires.

If you understand the concepts and goals of GVT, then you'll know if/when you're doing it properly.

If you don't mind, would you post a full week of what you're planning on doing?
