Vince Gironda was known for many workout schemes; 10 x 10, 8 x 8, 6 x 6, 10-8-6-15, 15 x 4 and bicep 21s are a few. Below is a sample of a Gironda style two-day split for GVT.

Here it is the brutal 10x10 Vince Gironda German Volume Training (GVT) Split. Start with no more than 60% of your 1RM and don’t go to failure. If you are struggling at any rep, stop and move to the next exercise.  Rest between 60 to 90 seconds between sets.

Bench Press

Incline Curls

Day 2 Rest

Vince Gironda Quote from Vince Gironda’s Inside Tips for Better Gains By Bob Green (From MuscleMag, May 1983)
"I’ve seen what the FDA did to certain B vitamins in the ‘50s. Politics! Had nothing to do with nutrition. I wonder: are the medical people asking, ‘Can I prescribe it? If not…, to hell with it!"
