    Default Volume workout

    A friend of mine at the gym told me about a volume program he had started so I decided to give it a try. Essentially, you do 8 sets of 8 reps for a given bodypart. Of course you have to use a lighter weight with this, but I tried it yesterday, and I am completely tuckered out. My friend has been gaining off this workout so I'm going to try it out a little longer.

    In the old days we would do 10 sets of 10 or even 5 sets of 5 which was supposed
    to be heavy weights and a bulker.

    This thread is tuckering me out. LOL Seriously, let us know how it goes. I have done
    the 10 sets of 10. Great for my legs but arms seem to shrink after a while of that.
    Watch to see if some body parts respond differently.

    not to knock this methos at all as i believe in volume as well, matter of a fact im training my wife right now with volume, but i consider volume to be measured by reps not sets? for instance i have her on a 4 set per exercise 15-20 reps program with light to medium weight. She has come along quite well in only 3 weeks now training high volume, i just never considered more sets and normal reps to be high volume. might give it a go though for her after another 2 weeks doing it as i explained above

    Perhaps it is a different kind of 'high volume.' I've heard of the 8 of 8 and 10 of 10 before, and it is considered a type of volume workout at least. I am finding it to be interesting. It seems to be working, but that may be only because I'm doing something my body isn't used to doing. I'll continue this workout regimen a little longer because I think I'm onto something in the way my body responds to training.

    Way back we used to use the 10 sets of 10 just to shock a bodypart that was not
    responding. Would only keep it up for a while then switch to a heavier 5 sets of 5 -
    for example.

    Well, it was good for a change to do volume, but it is time to go back to DC. I think I respond better to DC than volume.
