    Talking I bring you... Blaster Sets..


    I use a certain technique that I've shown many friends, who now curse my existance because of it..   It's a simple set/rep scheme I thought of years ago to get my arms to grow, so far it worked.. This can be used for any bodypart, I do this as a finishing movement when I want to flush the muscle to the point where it feels like it's gonna pop.. I call this technique the FoxSet!

    Here's an example, say you are working arms:

    Alternate Dumbell curls with the dumbell range 40lb-70lbs

    Do 10 reps alternating with the 40's, rest 5 seconds, do 10 with 45.. Continue up to the 70's, your reps should be close to 10 but not quite, maybe 6-8.. Now, you use the 70's to the allowed amount your able to squeeze, resting 5-10 seconds between dumbells.. Once you finish at the 40lbers, THAT WAS ONE SET!!

    Yes, all that work is counted as only one set, and you do this rotation for 2-3 sets... Sounds sick, does it not?

    Here's my scheme for T-bar Rows (my favorite back movement!)

    2 45's for 10-12 reps, 3 45's/10-12 reps, 4 45's/10-12, 5 45's/8-10, 6 45's/6-8

    rest 15 seconds, start again with the 6 plates, dropping a plate after the allowed amount of reps you can do.. 2 plates should feel heavier than the 6 plates did, not to mention, this is still considered one set!

    NOTE: To defend against overtraining, this should only be done every two weeks in a cycle... Week one, do the Foxset for biceps, week two try the back idea, so on.. It can also be done with light weights/high reps if you're into that while dieting.. I did this while dieting, and it helped me keep my strength up while low-carbed..

    Now, who wants to try?

    Glad you like it! I plan to add more variations on how you can do this scheme for legs, delts, and other parts.. I feel that it's good for shocking the living hell out of a weakpoint.. Once I get back to it, I'll go back to my usual 3 times a week of FoxSet work..

    Nice Pete, a trainer at a gym years ago showed me something kinda like this (some small differences though) and it always killed a lagging bodypart. I think I'm going to try these with biceps (need 20" damnit!! )

    I used to do something similar too, except I didn't go back down the rack. It hurt like a mofo. Couldn't imagine this...

    Do you only do this with one exericse then continue the rest of your exercises normally, or do you only do one exercise using the fox set and that is your workout for the day? Or all exercises fox setted?

    Re: I bring you... FoxSets!


    Ive done a simiar workout for chest.  I called it a complete pyramid.  I would work from 225 up untill I would hit the 5 rep range around 345 adding 20lbs each time, then I would work back down to 225 dropping 20lbs each time. 20lbs was the variable.  Between each benchpress set i would do flys with 65lbs till failure.  That was my constant.  When I do super sets I like to have a variable and a constant. It can either be the 1st or the 2nd exercise dosent matter.  I take about 1min betwen sets though not 15 seconds thats crazy.

    My arm routine looks like this, when using this routine..

    1- barbell curls(1 warm up, 3 heavy sets)

    2- FoxSet dumbell curls ( 1 warm up going thru 3 sets of dumbells, then starting sets 2-4 from the lightest to the heaviest{45-50-55-60 then back down} only 10-15 seconds rest)

    3- one arm concentration curls (4 sets heavy)

    4- Hammer curls (4 heavy sets)

    I don't recommend doing a complete workout solely using a FoxSet scheme, you'll burn out faster than Richard Simmonds chasing a fat person out of a buffet line.. Oops, wrong analogy..

    Only one per workout, it can be done with alot of bodyparts...

    this is primo for back, by the way... **** like DB and BB rows... my back handles high set volume really well, and I like adding something like this in (aside from my usual drop sets) every third workout or so.

    Just tried the Foxsets scheme w/LegPresses. (w/30 seconds rest and then 10-sec rest on the way down - just enough time for my partner to pull the plates off) Holy crap!! The pump was awesome...better than even a GVT workout. I like it because you can still hit the volume/intensity while going up to a heavy poundage.
