For all of you who have tried great guns- did you find that the workout was exceptionally long. I found that after doing warmup sets for each arm, and then work sets for each arm. (which totals 12 sets for the biceps triset), and the doing the same for the triceps triset (another 12 sets)- then doing warm ups and work sets of the next 2 exercises (4 more sets). Then the last exercise is a ton of volume- it is 3 sets of drop sets, going back and forth between curls and overhead extensions. Which adds another 8 sets if you count the 2 warm up sets. Also there were 4 sets of wrist curls done at the beginning of the wrokout. So we have a grand total of 40 sets (granted many of them are warmups, and i am counting each arm for doing its own sets on some exercises)… the point is that even with supersetting and trisetting, I find it hard to believe that anyone could complete this workout in an hour. I did it today and it took me about an hour and 40 minutes but I always take longer on the first workout so I bet next time it will take about an hour and 15 minutes or so. What do you guys think about this volume for the arms?
My second question is regarding mag-10. Would mag-10 still be very beneficial and or worthwhile to use during a program such as great guns? or would that compromise mag-10s effectiveness. Would I be much better off with one of the mag-10 specialty programs??? Thankyou for any advice
