    Burned Out? Try GVT, 10X10

    I have just begun German Volume Training and I am thoroughly impressed.

    Coming off injury and burnout this was the perfect choice for me.

    For you power-lifters who are getting beach ready I think this would be a great workout as well.

    Take a look here.

    Thank you my brother. Being gone sucked but it was BADLY needed. First break in over two years of any kind from hitting the gym hard.

    A few years ago I hit a plateau and couldn't add size for the life of me... I ran this program. At some points I thought I was dying, but holy hell did I get stronger. My girl ran it with me. She went from repping 40lb dumbbells for 6 or 8 to 60's for 6 or 8...

    Awesome program and super simple.

    I could see it being a good deload from a 5x5 or other heavy training routine. Prolly wouldn't just jump right into it off the bat though.

    Love GVT training in the bag of tricks. Used this about 6 years ago. I haven't trained that style since, might be worth re-visiting hear in future.

    I had chest day yesterday and I am dying. My chest hasn't been this sore in a long time. I did 10 sets of 10 at 155 and the first three sets were a joke. By the fifth or sixth set it got real. I barely eeked out sets nine and ten,

    I think I will stay with this for the next 12-18 weeks and see what happens.

    Like air said it's not for everyone but it can be used no matter what your level of training or strength is. Make sure to keep it to 30-60 seconds between sets and use 50-60% of your 1RM. Once you can do all ten sets increase weight by 5%.

    UPDATE: I am loving this! It is simple and that is wonderful but even more so I am getting FAST results. I am up in weight and size, my arms are in shock and are responding with growth and the leg workouts have taken my wheels to another level already.

    Maybe the sickness was a blessing? I am coming back bigger and stronger and at 55- that ain't easy bros.

    Glad i saw this post. thinking I am gonna do an 8 week GVT run starting tomorrow. I would have to add that the rest periods during the main GVT sets should be more like 90 seconds and the assistant exercises 60 seconds.

    I've been on a 3:1 protocol since november, and looking to try something new. I'll look into this more.

    Vette, if this works out for me, I'll buy you a beer!

    thanks for the 411 mate!

    Re: Burned Out? Try GVT, 10X10

    So this week i have done a modified version of this program with squat/bench/deadlift

    did bench Monday 225lbs 10x10 and finished out the workout with cable flies. Was not as sore and wanted to lift more, that is till i woke up next morning.....

    tues- squats- 225lbs 10x10- this destroyed my legs, could only do 4 sets of leg ext and calves after. Had a hard time sitting on the toilet seat lol

    did deadlifts today. 315lbs 10x10..... holy shit im sore

    got back and arms left for Sunday

    cant wait till next week when i get to max out on all my lifts

    Re: Burned Out? Try GVT, 10X10

    Been mixing GVT with some pre-exhaust principles from Cashout (not on the same day) as well as some of Kris Gethins' DTP program (very high volume, legs in particular) and liking it. Similar weight range as to what R1rider mentioned above (I'll cop still to the occasional bout of "ego squatting" or deads...hey, it happens...) and with the lighter weight I'm feeling the workouts more in the targeted muscle groups and less on my joints / spine. Good stuff.

    From 12 to 17 years old I didn't know anything but 10 sets of 10. Everything was 10X10. It's good.
