Exactly the same context I am in at the moment; thanks for your feedback.
I should also point out that I was modifying the GVT program slightly. I was doing 10x10 on a main lift (IE: front squat). After each set, I would rest 30 - 45s and perform an antagonist exercise (IE: leg curl) again for 10 reps at a weight that was challenging but at which I would not reach failure. I would then rest the minute dictated by GVT to perform my next main lift set.
This really was a substantial change in that it probably negates the lactic acid buildup aspect of the program, but I certainly felt like I stimulated myself in ways that I hadn’t in years doing this program.
Embarrassingly, I made these changes because that is what I thought the GVT program was. This is a good lesson for me: research what I’m doing, don’t go by what I think I remember.
My supersets were:
front squats + leg curls
deadlifts + leg extensions
close grip bench + (alternated weekly face pulls or seated rows)
incline bench + bw chinups
This was followed by some assistance work for whatever was not worked in the main superset that day (some RDL’s on an upper day for instance) and abs at the end of every workout (sometimes weighted flexion movement, sometimes isometric, sometimes rotational, sometimes a combination).
Overall, a great workout that I would not want to continue for too long.
