Hi Guys,

I have started German Volume Training and this is pretty brutal, Does anyone have any experience of this method of training?

Not more than that I know I would chicken out quite fast. Especially with 60 seconds rest.

Or similar, google for it.

In short: 10x10 @ 60% 1RM 60-90 seconds rest.

This is an example of the set that I completed this morning, not pure volume training (due to the circuit), but pretty active all the same.

10 sets of 10 reps upright rows (60 seconds break after each set)

Circuit.

1. Standing Shoulder Presses x10
2. Lateral Raises x10
3. Front Raises x10
4 Dumbell Sumo Squat x10

One minute rest at the end of circuit, repeat 5 times

10 sets tricep pulldowns followed by 10 bench dips (30 seconds break after each superset), repeat 10 times.

Have you read mike mahler's volume training article on t-nation?
