    They're very cool and useful. You get used to heavier weight and say your max is 235, you can rep 5+ of 235 with the slingshot

    Oh wow that would really overload the triceps/lockout too i never thought about that..

    Well today i went to GVT but i really messed up my starting weight, I went with the higher of the % of 1rm being 60, i should of used 50 this **** is INSANE!!! Was really really hard, timed every single rest period i almost vomited about 4x, 3 of which were mid-set from holding my air.
    German Volume Training for squats is 50-60% of 1RM for 10 sets of 10 reps with 90 seconds rest between each set. It is used to allow the joints to recover and allow the olympic weight lifting athletes to put on lean mass while shedding bodyfat, most went up a full weight class in 12 weeks. This is some hardcore training no joke!

    175 x 10 x 4 Sets
    155 x 10 x 3 Sets
    135 x 10 x 3 Sets

    Next squat workout i am going with 155, the 175 KICKED MY ASS. Form improved greatly by 7th set. The program claims your form will improve drastically from the volume. I am in love with this, it was so hard guys i hope you try this!! One of the most challenging squat variations i have tried. I got a video of me at 155, you can hear me struggling to breathe LOL

    Weight was 216lbs today!! woooohooo!

    Dude this was soooo much harder than i anticipated, i used my phone to make sure i hit the prescribed rest intervals. After i finished the 10 sets i was disoriented for about 30 minutes afterwards. Legs shaking and twitching, with that said i bet this will build some insanely strong and huge legs without a doubt. My lower back was fried as well. Every damn muscle in my body is going to be sore tomorrow...

    Real nice work bro!

    Thanks man, by the last 3 sets i had my form dialed in really good. I got so tired that the ONLY way i could move that bar perfectly was with everything in place. I was driving my elbows too much forward putting unnecessary strain on my shoulder and losing some upper back tightness. Focused on driving my knees out even harder which allowed me to squat a lot deeper and still use my hips.

    Here's the one video i managed to shoot lmao, god dammit i only got 8. It's so hard to keep track of reps when all these little technical form intricacies are there..

    I am scared man you have no idea, i am looking into a chest supported row or pull up for tomorrow 10x10 then leaving. Nothing fancy what so ever

  13. Great video! The form looked real good!

  14. I am still alive!! LOL my legs are already pretty damn sore, tomorrow is going to suck the sack haha

    Did Back today 10x10, started conservatively since yesterday i experienced the wrath of being greedy!
    Barbell row Shoulder Width Grip: 105 x 10 x 10, hit all the sets with the rest. Next workout will be 115 x 10 x 10
    Chin ups: BW @ 212lbs x 10,10,5,3
    Leg raises: 5 sets of 10 with 30 seconds rest

    I noticed that Charles poliquin suggested 10x10 chins, wow i wish i was that strong at them the arm/back size that could be obtained from that would be insane, maybe in the future.

    Felt a little dizzy again after this LOL

  15. Ok so BOOM today i am at 214Lbs Morning weight! Training my overhead press 10x10 later and then some tricep variation, was thinking floor press or bench dips? Floor press seems like it'd be a better choice since i want to improve my bench without thrashing my shoulder!

  16. Overhead Press/Barbell Shrugs/Floor Press: 214Lbs BW
    Overhead Press: 70 x 10 x 10, 4 sets were 60 seconds rest and the others were 90 seconds, it felt sooo light the first sets i couldn't help myself but by the 9th set i was DYING LOL
    Barbell Shrugs Double Overhand Grip: 155 x 10 x 10, 60 seconds rest. Should of started 165 but still good.
    Floor Press with Pause: 135 x 8,8,8 140 x 8

    Floor press felt really goofy, pretty sure my form wasn't the best but i really liked how the exercise felt. I struggle mid point so this is PERFECT for me. Plus it doesn't kill my shoulder so i have a way to improve my bench on my 2nd pressing day.

  17. So today was squat 10x10, i tried 160 and was SOOOOOO CLOSE, got 8 sets the last two i broke up into sets of 3-4 reps with 30 seconds rest. I was so fatigued that i could NOT feel my legs. Literally didn't know what i was squatting down to but every single rep was below parallel. I am sticking with 160 for next session, this **** if CRAZY. Had some guy try to tell me it wasn't hard, laughed in his face told him to go try it. Guarantee he'll half squat anyways since everyone's ego is up their ass. GVT will humble the hell out of you.
    BW today was 215Lbs!
    Squat: 160 x 10 x 8 sets then 2 sets were made up of 3-4 reps 30 seconds rest until i hit 20 more reps, this technically was the same but it allowed me to focus on form on those last reps where everything breaks down. So almost like 60-70 seconds rest instead of 90 so maybe it was actually harder... LOL
    Got a video of me on my 6th set, i was wiped out even at this point but still grinded em out, It's hard to tell but i could NOT breath and i was dry heaving after the 4-5th sets. I feel so happy i finished this today!!

  19. 213Lbs today, strength is starting to go up!
    Back/Row Day 10 x 10 (90 second rest)
    115 x 10 x 10 did these with 3-4 second negatives, will do this with rows until i need to move the bar faster to get better lat/back stimulation. Next workout i am going to cut my rest periods to 45 seconds, essentially doubling the amount of work done. So far when i increase the weight it is just too much, all that volume adds up really really fast. Intensity is defined as higher % of 1rm or more work done in less time. I am aiming for more work less time! Back is actually growing lats are popping out more.
    Chin Ups: BW x 12,12,10. PR on these the first set i could of gotten 14. I might actually rotate these to 10x10 once i hit 20 reps!!

    So strength is definitely going up, i am looking a little bigger too. Let the games begin!
    I am contemplating 3 days on 1 day off, mainly to let me heal up for squats because they destroy me. This training style is no joke!

  20. Nice dude. Still looking good. Your form looks much better as well even for your 6th set. I love them little vids. Keep em coming. You don't ever use a belt?
    I think your gym is cool ... I never see anyone there, nice and private

    Well i found that "sweet spot" for my upper back tightness and that probably helped a lot too! Glad you enjoy them man i will keep them coming. I don't use a belt at all, just never have. I love working there it's a real old school atmosphere everyone works hard, it's not usually too busy either!

    I also have a key so i can even go after hours if i wanted

  22. That gym does look really cool! A key! Even better

  23. Okay i started conservatively with bench since i have had shoulder/elbow issues with it. With that said, i REALLY enjoyed my session today!!
    Bench 105 x 10 x 10 with 90 seconds rest, Grip with middle finger on rings and brought the bar a little higher. Felt really good to be honest i can "press in a straight line" better from this position and have no pain at all unless i lockout HARD which i avoid. 10x10 is going to improve my bench form drastically and blow my chest up for sure!
    Barbell Shrugs: 165 x 10 x 10 with 60 seconds rest felt strong, gonna go up to 175 next session my grip strength is improving.
    Dips: 8,6,6

    Dips have always been a double edged sword for me they either work extremely well or mess up my shoulder so as a precaution i cut some depth out of it and did them extremely slow. I really really like the exercise but i need to make it work for me and not against me. Felt strong today really solid session, from now on i am taking 1 day off before and 1 day off after my 10x10 squat day. I just need some more time to recover!! To be honest i think i might lower my weight again for squats, i want to actually complete all 10 sets of 10!!! This is the consequence of starting too heavy and being greedy which i will never make this mistake again!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me


  24. Random measurement i took today, arms are at 17" finally Pretty awesome considering i do no direct arm training anymore!

  25. A lot of good advice there. I hope some newbs watch & learn, instead of talking sh*t about things they don't know.
    Keep killing dude!
