Often referred to In strength coaching circles as the "ten sets method". Its origins come from the mid 70's where Germanys' national weightlifting coach, Rolf Feser, used it as a great way for his athletes to pack on lean mass during the off season.
How does it work?
The program works because it targets a group of motor units, exposing them to an extensive volume of repeated efforts. The body adapts to the extraordinary stress by hypertrophying the targeted fibres. I can say from experience, that to say this program adds muscle fast is an understatement.
Where to start?
This type of training isn't rocket science, however, I do recommend having a stop-watch handy, as you want to stick to the timing as strictly as possible.
Pick an exercise (eg: squat), load around 60% of your 1RM, you're going to be performing 10 sets, so don't worry if the weight feels a little light on the first few sets.
Ok, let's do it!
Pick a good playlist, because you're in for a grind.
10 sets, 10 reps with a 60 second break between each set.. GO!
