    Would probably throw up and die of over training. Like he said do not use over 2 weeks not a bad variant though

    I am on week 4 of a standard GVT routine right now. This is interesting. Gonna have use a much lighter weight to get anywhere near 100 reps. I like it though. Might have to utilize this plan as my wrist and elbow have been acting up.

    mattikus, when do you work chest? How far apart from when you hit shoulders?

    I am following the basic 5 day cycle. So I am doing shoulders/arms, day off, chest/back, next day-legs/abs, day off, start over. My arms are pretty tore up after shoulder/arm day, and still a little sore on chest/back day, but I power through it. It is brutal, but still my top routine for strength, putting on muscle and burning fat. And not something I would do for more than 8 weeks without a deloading period.
