    You're doing that for MA? This program strikes me as a way to get all swole up, not to excel in athletics.

    German Volumen Training is a program target more to hipertrophy, more than overall strenght or conditioning.

    Also, as Black Pete can tell, it's a little bit tooling, generally it's advised to not do any other physical activity while in a GVT program.

    Don't know about getting swollen up, but I'm sore as **** 48 hours later.

    1 day is being set for lifting, the rest for grappling, wrestling, etc.

    I'll give a full report after a month is done.

    How long is a session taking you? Seems like it would be an ungodly long time in the gym. Especially if you are "grappling, wrestling, etc." after it.

    Supposedly it takes muscles on average 3 days to recover from a work out and more time if it's a new program like this.

    Good luck and be careful you don't overtrain.

    It took approx 45 minutes to do the whole circuit. We didn't do anything else other than the 3x10.

    I'm at 24 hours right now, and right smack at the peak of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). It took everything to get out of bed, I haven't worked out in a month and a half, just doing cardio, so this has been really bad.

    Where are you in South Fla? The only place I remember your style being taught was up in the Lake Worth area.

    Your stories of pain reminded me of when I first started Crossfit. It hurt like hell for the first week or so, but then my body adjusted and it isn't nearly as bad now.

    As a veteran of many an Iron war, I know the feeling. It's just I've never felt it over my whole body at the same time. Two body parts, sure, but damn, this sucks.

    Hurt you will, but strong will you become.

    man that looks nuts to me

    but there's a bent appeal in getting it all out of the way in one day

    I'm curious to see how it works. Probably should disclaim for readers who haven't figured it out: This is not a beginner's workout
