I train Shieko. On the lightest days I move over 30,000lbs. 10,000 seems quite doable.
FYI, I have always tracked total tonnage as one way of (loosely) quantifying workout intensity.[/quote]
wouldn’t total tonnage quantify volume and not intensity?[/quote]
Yes, it is a direct measure of volume. I suppose intensity isn’t the best word, perhaps I should have said “workout effectiveness”.
For what its worth, the highest volume that I seem to do is close to 60,000 lbs. Those are days when the loading (or intensity) is the lowest and the reps and sets are the highest.
