Oh ok. Sorry 'bout that, eh?
I'm going by the original article on GVT by Charles Poliqiun I read in Bill Phillips' first "sport supplement review" in the 9th grade several years ago.
Supersets with 60s rest between the two exercises. Ex: bench press and chest-supported rows. Bench, 60s, row, 60s, bench, 60s, row, 60s. For 10 sets, then 3 sets of 10-12 in an assistance exercise in a different plane of motion.
If his schedule allows, I'll do the five-day:
1 - Chest and Back
2 - Legs and Abs
3 - Off
4 - Arms and Shoulders
5 - Off
6 - Repeat
If not, I'll figure something else probably based around "UB horizontal", "UB vertical", "LB hip dominant", and "LB knee dominant".
You're probably right about allowing him time to get used to the volume. I should probably ramp it up over a few microcycles first, eh?
I should probably give him 90s between supersets and do the first microcycle with slightly less intensity.
Mesocycles would be 3 microcycles of 10-set sessions to one microcycle of 3-set sessions. 15 days "hard" to 5 days "easy", essentially.
Macrocycles would last until he stops gaining strength and size or reaches his goals and we switch to new ones.
The health club I work for offers "packages" up to 36 sessions at a time. That would mean we could keep this going for 4 mesocycles. I'll have him eating ridiculous amounts of food for the first three mesocycles, then switch to a cutting cycle for the last 4.
He's a true ectomorph so the cutting phase won't need to be very long, if we even need it at all.
