10x10 is used sparingly not for everything and it is a focus with perhaps some assistance work. Your focus is not on mass as I see that in 2 weeks you will crash and burn unless you have some chemical help which you would need to get through this type of “mass” program. Cut your 8x10 and 10x10 to 4x10 and see what happens and I would cut the arm work if you row and press enough the arms will grow, arm work can be added later if you see they are not getting the stimulus though it does happen to some that indirect work doesn’t do the trick.
hi, so what do you mean by crash and burn? i have been doing the 10x10 workout for a couple of months now and it’s working great. I was even doing it twice a day at one point. I am also using giant sets(or intervals?) where i move from set to set without rest or with a minimum of it and i am not taking any chemicals whatsoever.[/quote]
Are you doing the same volume as the OP? Including the running he placed in there? If your program is working why not post it for him?
I’m open to anything so maybe I’ll learn something. I think for someone who is not experienced his workout may be too much and perhaps that is where I went wrong assuming he is inexperienced doesn’t matter IMO I think for most and not all obviously because you say your routine works you will need exceptional recovery abilities to get through the OP’s program as he first planned it.
Training is a progressive experiment on ourselves and that is why some things work for us and some don’t. He could simply ignore all I have written, no matter he will find what works for him in the long run.
