Who came up with 10 x 10's?
Whoever you are, **** you to all Hell.
I didn't even get to 10 sets, 3 x 10 was more like it. Full body, Im' fucking sore as ****.
My trainer near the end said I was strong, I was like, right.
Damn you creator!

isn't that German Volume Training? Probably the Germans did then. Also, I've read that yu don't start out with 10x10, but work your way up to 10 sets. So your first workout of 3x10 would be fine. If I remeber correctly.

10 sets of 10 reps of the same exercise is how GVT is done I think.

With the same weight? Do you add weight after you get to 10x10 and start the cycle over?

Same weight for the whole duration.
20 to 30 second rest between sets. A minute between different excercises.

From memory, 3 Sets of 10 reps each set, 30 second rest between sets, a minute between body part.
1. Chest - Dumbell Press
2. Chest - Bench Press
3. Back - Wide grip pulldown
4. Shoulders - Arnold Presses
7. Hamstring Curls
9. Bicep Curls
11. Crunches - 25 to 30 reps each set
Thank God this is only once a week. I've OD'd on Motrin.

But since we are only training lifting on one day, and the rest on take downs, standup, and grappling, it's understandable why he went with all body.
