Rest 4-7 days in between workouts is what he did right?
I became a fan of HIT myself, I had to do two working sets per exercise instead of one though. I was getting strength gains from one, but no size and I tried that for a few months. So I now use the HIT training principles with two all out working sets per exercise and have never been as strong or thick as I am now. I recommend it to anyone, and I have in my gym. Many I have recommended it to like it and have made steady gains.
is there any scientific base backing Mentzers methods?
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.
Hey Braaq, you can tell HIT is working for you mate
Yeh, it does make complete sense to train in a 1 all set fashion. Like you said Braaq, Mike was a very intelligent man and was way ahead of his time, i wish he had a O title to his name though, maybe then he wouldnt have retired when he did do.
As much as I like readin Mike's stuff you have to keep in mind the guy was a nutcase spaced out on speed most of the time.
Also is it just me or do those vids seem just a whole lot :greddy: Serious muscle whorship stuff :keke:
but his methods are well, sure there might be other methods are there
but for those who never go from the sheer intense workouts "aka Braaq"
and others i know of, methods that push you, that force you to go beyond the limits, its all good.
