Yah, you know me.
I'm back in the GVT (German Volume Training) train for my off season. I started two weeks ago and I'm liking the results. I modify from Polquin's beginner and intermediate plans, but keep the basic concept of 10 X 10 on most exercises, and 12 X 6 on others.
Today I was in my 4th set of flat bench and had 205 on the rack. I bigger guy grabbed the bench next to me and (nicely) offered a spot if I needed it. Three sets later (still at 205) within roughly five minutes, he offered a spot in case I wanted to increase the weight. I declined and kept hitting my ten reps for the next set and I could tell he was confused. He finished up and watched me finish my last ten... arms shaking and all. He was trying to be complimentary, but could not fathom why anyone would stay at the same weight for so long. When I explained the concept and shared previous results, he was floored and vowed to give it a go next month.
I also invited him to check out the site. So if you see a new member who can barely type his name next month, give him a big ole welcome Iron Style.
