I want to try some 10 sets of 10 German volume training.

I'm 36 years old and a bit overweight. Will I die?

No, but the odds are fairly good that you'll injure yourself.

Forget about gimmicky routines. If you haven't already, read Starting Strength by Mark Rippertoe. Find a competent powerlifting coach with IPF experience and learn proper form for the Olympic lifts. Get them to set you up with a decent routine and stick with it.

There are plenty of bodybuilders who know how to get results, but they're notorious for taking stupid risks and ruining their bodies - just look at the laundry list of horrendous injuries suffered by the likes of Coleman and Yates. Massive high-intensity routines aren't significantly more effective than a conventional training routine in terms of either strength or hypertrophy, but they drastically increase your risk of injury. A moment of bravado in the gym can cause lifelong damage.

What exercises are you planning to use GVT with? I've always associated it particularly with squats, but I suppose it could be applied to certain other big compound movements like rows.

The thing is, you're 36, a bit overweight, and probably don't have the mobility to do a single anatomically correct squat in the first place. If that is indeed the case then losing a bit of weight and working on your mobility would be a good start.

If you do already train big compound movements with good form, what is it that attracts you to GVT particularly?

All of them. Chin ups, dips, squats, deadlifts, curls, presses and calf raises. All in a single weekly workout. Should take about 60-90 mins.

I just want to try it. 10 sets of 10 sounds impressive, just imagine the pump.

I'm starting my workout right now. If I don't post anymore tonight I'm probably dead.

I think you should probably worry more about your bizarre form of exercise schizophrenia. What's next? Fibonacci sequence routines? Ramping up reps by the numerological values of passages from the book of Deuteronomy?

Finished the workout. I only used an empty bar for most exercises so it wasn't that difficult. It was actually a bit boring, 10 sets is far too much.

>What's next? Fibonacci sequence routines?

Complex number series.

Thanks to this thread, I tried to do a push up. I couldn't do a push up, nor a pull up, not even a dip. I guess I have the upper body of a 5 year old. Maybe I should just take steroids and be done with it.

Unless you're a proper chubby fucker then you, unlike 90% of people it gets pushed on, are actually a perfect candidate for "do Starting Strength and eat a lot". Not being able to do a single pushup is not healthy even for the most twiglike of people.

I am VERY chubby with arms like a baby. Maybe I'd need to be half my weight to do a proper push up. I'm too far gone mate.

Be careful to stay hydrated, you might want to drink three cups of three afterwards.

Well as a chubby fucker you should lose weight until you get to the point that you can do a push-up. I assume you're at least able to run, right? Even if not very far? Start doing that every day. It'll do wonders for your heart and lungs. And more importantly combine that with watching what you eat. Cut out any easy sources of sugar like soft drinks and alcohol and sweets and excessive amounts of bread. Standard stuff ladm8.
