hey guys some of you may have read my post talking about wanting to get bigger. 5’9", 180lbs, 10% bf blah blah. im trying to do what everyone says and just keep reading on here but i was wondering who has had some good results from GVT or even OVT. i read about it on friday and saturday i did a chest/back workout. im not sure if i got the load right though.
typical bench would go like this for me: 135x10 warm up, 225x10, 255x6-8, 275x4 (and by typical i mean thats what i did wednesday of last week). but i was trying to think of what weight i could handle for 20 reps- as thats how it was described you should pick your weight, and i thought the only weight i could handle for literally 20 reps was like 135.
the antagonist exercise i went with was t-bar rows -old school with the barbell shoved in a corner cuz we done have a fancy machine- and i put 2 45’s on because once again i wanted to go with what i could handle for 20. just as a side not im going to do BB rows for the antagonist next time instead.
anyway i dont really feel anything today as far as soreness, not that its a true indicator of growth but i feel like they are somewhat related- and besides not feeling anything i got my 10 reps for all 10 sets of both exercises. and it was boring btw…anyway, did i use too light a weight for these or what? anyones experiences? thanks
