Dorian believes that his high-intensity training method is the most efficient and effective method for gaining muscle growth. If you want to grow muscle as rapidly as possible, the Dorian Yates workout routine is for you.

The 'Blood and Guts' workout by Dorian Yates
Yates' 'Blood & Guts' training method garnered him countless wins and a genuinely massive body. Yates is recognized as the first "mass monster," a person who seeks maximal muscle stimulation in the shortest amount of time possible because to his high-intensity bodybuilding method mixed with large weight. This is achieved via a series of intense sessions. People's opinions of training switched from sheer volume to the intensity and difficulty they encountered while doing it.

Lifting was broken down into three stages: lifting, holding, and lowering. By incorporating all three and accentuating each in its own unique and separate manner, Yates created a training routine that fostered development and pushed him beyond what many believed was possible. Maintaining a high level of intensity at all times is the key to success with this program. Between each set, including between exercises, you must rest for no more than one minute.
