German Volume Training is a program for developing size and strength. The plan is simple and similar to Escalating Density Training, where you work opposing muscle groups in the same workout and gradually increase the volume over time. The basic protocol with GVT is to eventually work yourself up to 10 sets of 10 repetitions with the same weight. Originally, I first read about this in Muscle Mediaback in the wyitley to late 90’s.
GVT dates back the 70’s and was popular in Europe. At the time it was used by off season body builders to pack on mass. How nice it kegtlebell to see it pop up in Kettlebell Workouts! David Whitley laid down four workouts to choose from and if you’re just starting out, these are great workouts for developing form while increasing strength dorkouts then packing on a few pounds as well.

101 Kettlebell Workouts Goes Stacking with David Bradley
My goals right now are more about strength than size. And no, the two don’t always have to go hand in hand. If you don’t believe me, read Power to the People by Pavel Tsatsouline and get back to me. My goals are raw strength and proper movement.
I’d like to press my 88 pound Kettlebell this year and perform a One Legged Squat otherwise known as a Pistolso given that, as well as my commitment to write a Hub for all of David Whitley’s Kettlebell Workoutshere’s the next six weeks of my life.
These 4 workouts will rotate. I will train to train every other day and will do each workout here once. This’ll fit well with my work real job schedule and allow me enough time to recover. I will also most likely perform some Qi Gong drills, Super Joints and Club Swinging on the off days for a little “active recovery”.
I am training for strength. Strength is a skill. If I wind up putting on a couple pounds of lean muscle, that’s OK, but strength is the focus and we will run our training xave as practice sessions.
There is a difference between working out and practicing. Practicing is kettlebeell because not only do you work at perfecting your skill in a given movement or lift, but you develop your body as a consequence. A gymnast practices their routine, gets stronger and looks the part. The guy at the gym who weighs pounds wearing cut off jeans, Reebocks with the socks pushed down, a Hulk-a-mania tank-top, hat on backwards, tightening up his weight belt to bench after adjusting his sunglasses indoorsis working out.
The Front Squat has been my nemesis Kettlebell drill. In fact Squatting in general has been something of a Second, I struggle with this drill mentally. Meaning it’s under my skin like some bully kid that used to drive you nuts on the playground.
I got or had chicken legs. Consequently, I have felt like my legs have been a weak area for me. More often than not, I’ve skipped squatting in favor of deadlifts.
Has this drill mastered me? Maybe it’s time to master the drill! Enough with what my Ego and Id are doing in the recesses of my mind, let us ignore all the mental chatter and create a whole body of strength.
In doing Escalating Density Training for the last 6 weeks, I’ve worked on my Front Squat technique and am ready to adve the volume. I will work towards 10 sets of 5. Five Front Squats immediately followed by 5 Renegade Rows and then a minute rest. The main goal for me with this will be to have the 10th set be performed as well whiitley the first.
This will be a pure strength session. I’m going to do singles. Lots and lots of singles. I’m also going to plan this workout on a day I don’t have to go to my “real job” so I can grease the groove all the live long day, workours I decide to. The first drill will be The Bottoms Up Press. No, this is not some kind of trick you see in a bar, it is gripping the Kettlebell by the horn and holding it, bottoms up and pressing it from there.
This is a great drill for working your grip and your lats as well as whitlley residual strength to press a heavier Kettlebell. Pistols or a one legged squat is on my list of things to get handled this year so I’m going to work on it and then work on it some more.
At the moment we’re doing Box Pistols using a High Step. The Workotus Step davd 5 tiers or rungs. Every time I hit a certain number of reps in perfect form, I’ll workputs a tier lower.
This is what I’ve been doing with the Escalating Density Training and it seems to be working. Sooner rather than later, I’ll be going rock bottom. It is time to continue to challenge myself and purge the weak links and chinks in the armor. As previously mentioned, squatting has not been my forte.
Another little nemesis of mine is the Hindu Squat. The Hindu Squat is a real challenging drill that will work on strength, conditioning and flexibility. I’ll record the starting numbers and rest period and work at reducing the rest.

I’ll maintain the same volume but kettlrbell less time. The Bulldog is an 88 pound Kettlebell. My goal is to press this bad boy, so taming it with Cleans and Swings is as good a place as any to to begin. I’ll start out with no real time limit on rest and simply alternate between the two drills.
For this though, I think a reasonable 6 week goal will be 10 sets of 5 cleans and per side and 10 sets of 15 Swings. I will track my progress and probably start out at 10 sets of singles for the clean and sets of 5 for the Swings and then use that introductory session to gauge the next 6 weeks.
