I don’t know if you think I was just being negative or something, but I honestly would like an answer to my question. If there is a good reason to count sets I want to know why. Anyone?
It is easy to interpret your first reply as negative - it isn’t that you aren’t going to participate and not post, you actually engage the thread with a “what is the point of this thread” reply.
That behavior is pretty negative but I’ll assume that you were asking a serious question as to why someone would want to count sets:
GVT requires that one count sets as do so many other training methods. You’ve been at it less than a year and may not have uncovered some of the characteristics of your body. But those who have been at it a long time find it useful for growth and strength reasons to KNOW how much work they are doing.
There was/is the chance that someone will reply with 25 sets for triceps and generate a discussion as to the merits of such high volume for triceps.
Some reading this thread do care to read what others are doing - they may even care more about these types of thread than ones asking if people would marry a porn star.
Remember, just because you can’t see the point of something doesn’t mean that it is pointless. I don’t understand German but when I see two people having a conversation in german they sure do look like they are communicating.[/quote]
Since when does doing anything for a long time make you an expert? And he never said it was pointless, he asked for the point.
On the subject of points, what is the point of your “German” statement. Are you suggesting that most people don’t see the point of foreign languages?
