I’m sick of my training protocol. It’s been boring and my results are beggining to stagnate. So I had this idea. Now I know a lot of people believe less is better and all that bull shit and in some cases it is, DC training is one example, but I think that more can be better too.
So with that being said, I pulled out my trusty encyclopedia of modern bodybuilding by Schwarzenegger, and listed every exercise I could possibley do for each muscle group at home. I have no car and am shit out of money because I’ve been paying for school, so training at home is a must. Thank God for mail order supplements too, and I still mange to get out and buy steaks every once in awhile. Things like this wont stop me!
Anyways, instead of doing the typical 10-12sets of chest or whatever I was doing, I decided to just hit 5 exercises ranging anywhere from 8-2 sets. I actually did 8 on flat bench, 4 on incline, 2 on flys, 2 on incline flys, and 2 on dips.
I did this all within an hour and it was a killer workout. I felt accomplished when I finished. It was rejuvinating, refreshing, and was what I was looking on.
I guess the question is who else has had success with a pretty high volume workout? Now my rep ranges are all over the place but I like that and I went anywhere from 310 for 3 reps on bench all the way to 10 reps of the 75 pound DBS on flys. So I guess I’ll just stick with this and record my progress. I’ll be doing this for every muscle group.
Actually thinking about it I know a lot of guys that have had success with this, Arnold being the biggest success of high volume training. So I guess the point of this post was to just throw out there that sometimes drastic changes are needed to keep you motivated and to stimulate new strength and size gains.
