Hey bros, help me get my mind out of a rut. I started powerlifting over 20 years ago and did it for years, but either the powerlifting or age caught up with me. I can't do the really low rep stuff anymore and for that matter comps lost their appeal some time ago. But I still love the lifting so I've been trying, the past couple of years, to head more in a bodybuilding direction. Not to compete just more to look good and be healthy.
So here's the thing. I just don't seem to do anything really different with my workouts. Like I still squat of course, and I'm not doing low reps, but I'm still stuck on working up to 1 or 2 top sets and then doing just a little assistance work. I know it is good training but I'm wondering if I'm missing out on something.
I found this article http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/shannon2.htm and thought I'd ask your opinions. It seems kind of along the lines of the GVT so many of you seem to like, but it would at least allow a little more weight and it would be briefer. Comments? Other ideas?
