Hooks for deadlifting?

Discussion in 'Training Forum' started by MisterSuperGod, Oct 30, 2018.

  1. Not quite pulling 535. Don't think i would try it. But yeah, it can get a little noisy, but i have my lift's down to a science when it comes to keeping it quiet. Padding is a must.

  4. That's right. Supreme Rep for any and all UGLs that need my superness to help them achieve fortune.

    i also do SLDLs. Trying to do 10x10 GVT with 535 would require new hamstrings. Preferably made of Adamantium steel.

    Supreme Rep I have a question if you can spare a moment of your supreme rep responsibilities.

    If I want to place an order is it easier to place it with you and your secure email.

    I’m just fuckin with you. Seriously though. I was debating on starting a thread on this and still can if you think it’s worth while but since you mentioned GVT I’m just going to ask. I have been considering trying it but I don’t know how people feel about it. I’ve read enough and may modify it slightly to work for me but I don’t know anyone that has first hand experience. Do you? What did you think about it. Like/dislike.

  9. It's probably the best routine i've tried yet. i'm still trying to establish a threshold for SLDLs, 'cause like they say, if you can do 10x10 with the weight, it isn't heavy enough.

    My grip has been my limiting factor. The rest of my body is ready to press on, but if i can't hold the bar, i'm screwed.

    i plan to stick with GVT until i hit a wall i can't traverse. From there, i'll retool, drop the weight a little and work my way back up. Can't always go full throttle.

    Are you following it as it’s intended. 6 weeks then the 3. Then that 2nd phase.

    Gvt is great as long as strength isnt the goal. I do it every so often to switch it up. But if you do it for too long, in my opinion you can lose strength. Not necessarily from the program per se. But because you're not lifting heavy any more. You're usually in that 50 to 60% 1rm.

  12. No. This has been my routine for the last 2 months or so.
    Even in a caloric deficit, my strength has been improving from week to week.

    i know it won't last forever and i'm going to hit the wall eventually, but for the time being, it's all roses and puppy dogs.

    as with all this shit diet will dictate the type of gains you make but do you think a program like that would be better suited if you were in a slight surplus. I was considering using it in a deficit along with some added cardio to lean out a little before I go on vacation in 6-7 weeks. Then hit it hard and heavy for the rest of the winter with a different program. Or should I save the GVT for when I get back and will be in a surplus.

  15. i think it would be great for a caloric surplus as well. Even though you aren't doing your absolute max lifts, you're still training to failure.

    Tough to say. i mean, it's working for me, but i'm accustomed to higher volume. If you're going to follow the basic setup of 6 weeks on, i say give it a shot before vacation.

    From what i've read, rest intervals are anywhere between 60 seconds to 120 seconds. i started out timing my rest at 60 seconds. As the weight got heavier, i bumped it up to 90 seconds. With SLDLs, i take the full 120 seconds of rest for that. My lungs give out with my grip sometimes. So the longer rest helps.

    I wouldn't recommend gvt during a deficit. You wanna lift heavy through the cut, its easier to gauge if your losing strength that way. I would definitely not recommend gvt if you are in surplus and lifting heavy, and switching to gvt just for the cut.

    I feel like it makes sense to be in a surplus with this program. Moderately heavy weight with lots of volume and the calories to power it and grow. Then I think because of the tempo and the potential for strength and hypertrophy along with cardio and a deficit it could be a good program to lean out.

    Well I should note that my experience with gvt was as a natty. So that changes a lot. As a natty I remember switching to gvt after a long bulk with lower volume higher weight type routine. So I switched to a cut and gvt for a few weeks, maybe 4 or 5, and going back to my original routine I lost a lot of strength.

    But I was a natty. And losing strength and size while cutting was one of the reasons I stopped being a natty.

    I’ll be trt till after vacation. Not a natty but definitely not enhanced. That’s why I’m kinda up in the air.

  20. i dunno, bro. In a deficit and with only Test Cyp at 200 mg/wk, my strength steadily increased while doing GVT.
