        You are the most powerful moron I've seen all day

        Do a proper, big boy pump session of dumbbell flyes, or tricep pushdowns, or preacher curls etc, find out yourself and stop being a FAT POWERSHITTER

    I've done this for the past 6 years with the only exceptions being that I do several isolation movements for my arms on the same day twice a week, but other than that all my lifts are one compound for 10 sets.

      How has your strength and size been doing this?

        I've never hit a plateau, not for strength and not for muscle.

        I work with rep ranges of 10-15, I overload by adding reps until I can do around 20+ for most of the work out, then I lower the volume back down to 10 and add weight.

          Have you ever worried about not hit certain exercises or muscle groups for long periods of time?

            no because when you're doing 10 sets of something the primary muscles become exhausted after a few sets and the secondary, tertiary and so on will compensate, which means there's no real need to isolate them.

            i.e overhead press isn't a movement anyone would traditionally use to train their serratus, but but the first thing that's going to get sore when you do so much volume of it at once is your serratus rather than your shoulders.

              Have you tried using less sets and reps? How did you fall upon 10 sets?

                I started with like 4-5 and it just slowly became more.

                I've got insane initial volume tolerance and stamina, but my recovery afterwards is only so-so, it takes my shoulders several days to recover from overhead pressing.

                Thanks for sharing, I'll gonna give this a try. Right now, I've been doing one upper and one lower body exercise every day and I've seen steady results but just want to add some variation into my sessions. I want to try to hammer away at one exercise each day now and see how well I make gains both in size and strength.

                If you have any other tips or things I should know before going into it, please post them.

                my split is something like this:

                monday: pull overs (or skullcrushers) and curls.
                tuesday: t-bar rows (10 sets)
                wednesday: skullcrushers (or pull overs), some curls, some lu raises for shoulder mobility.
                thursday: incline bench (10 sets)
                friday: some bodyweight core bullshit and a few dumbbell rows.
                saturday: ohp (10 sets)
                sunday: squat (5-10 sets)

    Make sure to only do 1x1 (including warm-ups)

    To the guy I was conversating back-and-forth with about his program, I just did 10 sets of bench and it was great. I felt like I really got some great stimulus in with little overall effort.

    im a beginner lifter and i only have a bar, clips, and 90lbs total of weight. i cant get to a gym so i make do with this program

    monday: 5x8 ohp (70lbs) 5x8 row (70lbs) 5x8 bench press (70lbs)

    tuesday: 5x10 squats (90lbs), sprinting

    repeat for thursday and friday
    so it's kind of similar to this program, especially for workout B, mostly just because I don't know what else to do for my legs with so little weight
