    Pretty sure that pic is of Kleen and ScottyDoc at Mardi Gras. I guess what happens there doesn't necessarily stay there.

    So, went "crabbing" yesterday at a pretty well renowned place in the western portion of the state. Was hoping to land a few dungies and maybe some rock crab. Well, we did but nothing worth keeping. On another note, we did catch this beast. Although inedible, I found it to be pretty cool. I know this has nothing to do with PXB, but it's how I spent my Sunday.

    Furthermore, I updated my avi to show what I'm looking like right now. Once you see the before pics, you'll make fun of me for what I looked like, but you'll be surprised by the progress I've made thus far. It's amazing what a decent diet, some hard work, and great supps can do.

    I'm already making fun of me, it's ok. Tough love works, and I don't mind being made fun of. Consider it fuel for a fire once again ignited.

    Yeah, I know I lost some muscle mass and added some fat during my attempt at HPTA recovery... Not happy where I am but a lot of people would probably still like to be where I am so can't complain too much.

    Just want to throw this out there for those of you who aren't familiar; GVT is no punk. I had to wait til this afternoon to get my workout on due to a sick kid at the house. I took my normal two PXB this morning, but I added one this afternoon to help me through GVT. It paid off. PXB+GVT=win even if I do feel like puking.

    Yeah, his program sounds a little more advanced than mine. Since I'm a fatass right now, I'll stick with the run-of-the-mill GVT.

    Yah don't have much faith in Poloquin training for bodybuilders, he is from my home town and he trains pro athletes yah but his training does not convert well to what we do. Not in my opinion ... wouldn't work for me anyway.

    What!? Wow I put on more muscle and recomp with gvt than any other program. Moreso than DC and fst-7 by far. Love it.

    many different programs/protocols can stimulate growth, if performed correctly
    options are endless..
    poliquin is an interesting cat, but his ideas on certain things can be considered, uhh, far-reaching
    (his 30g fish oil daily for testosterone boost comes to mind lol)..
    the guy has made a signature somewhat out of training anabolically enhanced athletes, and crediting his "natural approaches" for their growth & progress..i like him, is interesting source, but again all things must remain in perspective, is all

    Here's what it boils down to for me. I PM'ed Kleen when Snags put me on the list and I asked him for a routine that, without sounding too cliche, would help me get bigger, stronger and faster. Being that I can sustain a 6-630 mile for quite some time, I needed more the bigger and stronger part. The catch was that I was (and still am) on a quest to find, in my own words, an "enduring" strength rather than a "dynamic" strength. The best way I can describe what that means is, I don't need to be able to bench a house, but I'd like to be able to push it down the street indefinitely.
    Kleen rec'd GVT and Mattikus told me about P'quin and the outline looked decent. Granted, it's a take on an old routine, blah, blah, but I think it's a good foundation for my needs. I think volume is where it's at for me right now. If I don't gain ten pounds or look like Arnold at the end, that's fine. At this point in my career, being a bodybuilder isn't necessarily feasible anyway. I'll save that til I retire. I'm shooting for a Gronkowski-ish physique. It's a long way away, but it's a goal...

    Yessir, I've been following AB and Kleen and they're talking about 1" pumps as a result. Pretty insane. Of course, the better half of my relationship has the authority on my spending, so I'll have to sneak in a purchase without her knowing...

    Well Poliquin is interesting the GVT did not come from him he adopted it and brought it to the US. German Volume Training has been something the Germans have done for years and with great success. Doug if you have never done GVT I would not be quick to put it by the wayside without trying regardless of if the Poliquin name was attached to it. When it comes to high volume workouts I have NEVER responded to anything better than GVT, and it is amazing for also leaning up plus what it does for joint and tendon preservation is amazing.

    I think a lot of Poliquins stuff is off the cuff like Snags mentioned with the 30g fish oil or some of his other creations but when it comes to growing muscle while leaning up and increasing work capacity you will be HARD PRESSED to find a program that matches it. If I had more time available to me in the gym I would do a run of this right now.

    I never repsond well to any kind of high volume training. I have done a lot of things like it. I think high volume training like that can be a big mistake for some people anyways. I respond well to shorter more intense trainng. I have even gone less volume lately with a lot more success. Now some of this is due to age, as you get older I think you will agree, You have to make every little thing count the older you get. Getting rid of extra volume is a real key to growth for older people. It will likely happen to all of us. Economy of volume is important so that intensity can be maintained. If I did not make this adjustment I would not have been successful. It won't work for some of the older people I train. It may work for people 40 and under better. I used to work more volume in my 30's but I am progressing just as well in my 50's with pretty low volume. I stall when volume is increased, but I simply can't handle it as my joints will just give out so I am rarely able to complete what I set out to do. I just think you may change your mind once age some more. Maybe not I don't know every fuggin thing... I do believe strongly in volume economy though.

    It is maybe more intriging when you guys cut it down to 5 sets of 10 though provided it is only 2 to 3 exercises on a 3 day split. That may be ok for even me as I just finished somethng very similar. Mind you 4 weeks and my joints were fuggin completely finished. 4 weeks is all I could handle but I do think it was a good idea in the situation I was in as it allowed be to increase power while I was in an anabolic state allowing me ot use more weight when I went back to full body training.

    Under normal volume training principles I agree with you completely however not with how GVT is laid out. The only thing that makes GVT intense is the cumulative fatigue of the muscle, not the intensity IE weight... YOu never end up going heavy with GVT so it is not as taxing on the joints or tendons. To increase the volume as this program does you MUST drop intensity down around the 60% range. IE do 10 reps per set with a weight you can do for 20. Certainly when you try to keep intensity vie weight up while addin volume you are going to run into massive issues with your joints and tendons and of course while you are getting older that increases but this is laid out a different way and you can't really even go up in weight on it until you can complete all 10 sets of 10 reps. Many people don't get to that point in 1 cycle of GVT if so they may go up like 5 lbs 10 on a major lift.

    5 sets of 10 with 3 exercise is 15 sets, that is more than what is involved in GVT, it is 10 sets of 10 on ONE exercise per body part at 60% of your 1RM. You can add in 3 sets of an ancillary exercise but the premise is the 10 sets of 10 at 60% of your 1 rep max. Typically 2 body parts done per workout and in a staggered superset fashion.

    It is cool for you to have done it and not like it but until it has been done trust me it is an entirely different animal than you think. Sets 1-5 typically not hard at all, 6-7 you tend to fail to get 10 reps 8-9 sometimes you will get back up to 10 or increase reps then 10 you probably aint gonna get 10 if you do you go up.
