I have read a few articles about this training style and decided to try it out today and all I have to say about it is..... WOW WOW and WOW
I did this with legs today... Been lifting hard for a year and a half and needed something new.. Legs is by far my favorite thing to do.
For those who don't know what GVT is.... You find a weight you can rep 10 times( you want it to be challenging, but not super hard) wait 60-90 seconds and do another set of 10 reps for a total of 10 sets which = 100 reps. It is sick, I did this today for my leg workout... I like my last few sets to be heavier because my legs grow better with heavier sets.
Smith Squat 9 sets at 105 ( last set at 125)
Seated Leg Curls 10 sets at 90
Leg Press 8 sets at 200 ( my last 2 sets i did 250 for the 9th then 310 had to get a good pump)
Seated Leg Extenstions 9sets at 90 ( last set i did 130)
Calf Press on Leg Press 9 sets at 200 ( last set i did 290)
Stiff Legged Dumbbell Deadlift 9 sets at 40LBS ( last set was 60LB Bells) This was the death of me! Man im so sore now but in a good way!
