Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
haha Lance's twin brother finally is into HIT :D. Good job man, keep it up with this kind of training and i'm sure it will be great for you, the session looks good btw
im not gonna make any bogus claims about HIT being the one and only way, but i would reccomend everyone who hasnt tried it to give it a try. here is my training split atm, if ure interested
day 1: chest and bicep
day 2: Legs and calves
day 3: rest
day 4: shoulders and tris
day 5: back and traps
weekends off, and then repeat.
Too late tkD, I'm already here :keke: Give HIT a shot buddy :)
Joakim, your back workout looked sweet, very similar to mine. Actually your split is exactly the same as mine. I'm glad your doing the real HIT going past failure and so fourth. Thats exactly what I do as you know, 8-10 reps to failure then beyond with intesnsity techniques. Have you got Dorians book yet? I would advise you to purchase that, it's one of the best bodybuilding books for motivation and helping with diets and mental attitude. Glad your doing so well buddy :)
another HIT fellow! welcome
I have already noticed that you know that HIT is the bOMB! but still want to incentivate you to continue, I have been training HIT for almost 6 months now, I i've put more muscle in this period of time, than when I trained volume for 2 years. And the strengh.... wow... it's of the hook!
keep it up!

I hear you though about not always having a training partner and therefore you're just going to have to do your best with what you've got. When I'm on my own, I often use rest/pause, drop sets and partials.
When you do forced reps, do you incorporate any other intensity techniques into that set or do you just use one technique and thats it? I like to use a combination of techniques.
oh ye i defo incorporate many intensity techniques into a set. after my partner is done helping me crank out another rep or two, i usually make him assist me with negatives and/or some static holds. if im alone, i usually stick with rest pause and drop sets. personally i love drop sets though, nothing burns better:D
