I am about to start Poliquin's original GVT program after coming back from a shoulder injury. I would like to favor my upper body pulling muscles over my pushing muscles while still adhering to the program as strictly as possible.
My first question is whether there is any benefit to performing the workouts either in a sequence or in super-sets. I believe he states that one can use either method. Ideally on day one I would like to perform all 10 sets of chins before the decline DB presses.
My second question is, if the sequence method is okay for me, what would the ideal rest periods be? In the intro he states:
"there is minimal rest between sets (about 60 seconds when performed in sequence and 90-120 seconds when performed as a superset), which incurs cumulative fatigue."
This would lead me to believe I should use 60 second rest periods but his sample routine shows 90 second rest periods for the A exercises and 60 seconds for the B. He also writes:
"Notes: Rest 90 seconds between each "A" exercise and each superset; rest 60 seconds between each "B" exercise and each superset."
So that is a long way of asking if I should use 60 or 90 seconds for the A exercises.
Also, if I can't do 10x10 for chins shold I use another exercise? Thanks
