8 x 8

Lately a lot of stuff has been coming over my internet feed about the benefits of an 8 x 8 workout regimen to bulk muscle and lose weight: You do eight reps of 8 exercises focusing on a major muscle…Continue

Body building apps

I'm trying to find a body building app that will help me keep track of exercises and progress. When I search on my phone, sites are either full of ads or want you to commit to a paid plan without…Continue

 I read the book club selection, "What are Men Good for?" and it was one of the most interesting reads I've ever had. Here is a video blog from a woman who came to the same conclusions:…Continue

Suddenly a step-granddad

As usual, my summers off as a teacher are going to be spent watching my kid's children. There is a new twist this summer, since I am suddenly the step-granddad of three boys, ages 6, 8 and 11. Their…Continue

"I do the same thing.......Sometimes I get lost in the workout and just have enough trouble trying to keep track of what set I am on."

"I do my calcs before the gym on a little piece of paper that I bring. Everything is laid out; weights, sets, reps. Otherwise I'd be a basket case.  It's hard enough for me doing the math loading up the plates."

"I think I'd need a computer to keep track of all the weight changes. I usually work out after teaching science for 7 hours, so my brain is spent when I get to the gym. It's a pleasure to do something purely physical after explaining…"

Sean O' replied to Brown Fox's discussion 8 x 8
"It stays at 8 reps. IIRC both 8 x 8 and GVT use fairly short rest periods and high intensity. Because of this, if you just did straight sets with the same weight, the weight would have to be very light for all 8 sets. You could never do all 8 sets…"

Carl Monster replied to Brown Fox's discussion 8 x 8
"Interesting, but it's not an 8x8 anymore. Reps must be all over the place!  Set four must be very high rep, as it's up to 30 lbs lighter. Do like the idea of set 5; I usually go back to my starting weight for an extra work set at…"

Sean O' replied to Brown Fox's discussion 8 x 8
"The simplest way to think of it is as a series of ramps. These can go light to heavy or heavy to light. If I were going to use wave loading for 8 x 8 it might look something like this: set 1 - weight I can just barely get 8 reps with (without a…"

"What's wave loading?"

Sean O' replied to Brown Fox's discussion 8 x 8
"Agreed. And there are many ways you could tweak this program (or GVT as well since it was mentioned earlier) to help to match your goals. I can't remember exactly how the loading on these programs goes, but you could easily decide that you want…"
