    Starting GVT Today!

    With my back injury, I've had to edit some of the lifts, but my goal is to gain 14lbs by May while keeping my bf under 14%. I have been training with HIT principles for a year+ so I figured now might be a good time to try something new!

    176lbs
    ~11.5 % bf
    17 yrs old

    GVT meaning German Volume Training? If so, good luck!

    I tried this program in the past and I really liked it.

    Thanks, I just finished my chest and bicep workout and my arms are shaking! It felt so werid lifting the weight because I was so used to HIT programs. Anyway heres how it went:

    **Monday-2/21/05**

    Bench Press

    155lbs 3x10; 1x7
    150lbs 1x5
    145lbs 1x7; 2x6; 2x4

    *Like I said earlier, I was so used to HIT programs that I started out with way too much weight. I was using around 65-70% of my max instead of the reccomneded 50-60.

    Dips

    Bodyweight- 3x10

    Chin Ups

    Bodyweight- 10;10;8;5

    *I was planning on doing 10 sets, but after my 4th set I could only do 5 half reps so I switched to DB curls.

    DB Curls

    20lbs 4x10
    25lbs 1x8;2x7;1x8

    Hey thanks arch. I've had my back injury since Sept. (2 slipped discs and one torn disc). Besides being in pain for 24-7, I can't even do key excersises, like squat and dealfit. I just hope I can get it fixed soon......

    Friday
    3/4/05

    Seated Row

    103lbs; 10-10-10-10
    110lbs; 10-10
    118lbs; 6-8-6-5

    Close Grip Bench

    125lbs; 10-10-7-6

    Skull Crushers

    75lbs; 10-10-9-8-7-6-6-7

    *Well, after a few weeks my weight has climbed up to a little over 180lbs. We have fitness tests this week so I will be maxing out things like bench and dips. My previous max on bench was 235lbs, but I'm worried that I won't even be able to match that. (Mainly due to my back injury, but also that while I seem to be gaining great size on the program, my strength is not really increasing too much....)
