Had to post this....a past interview of Nasser, its hilarious because technically he is right.
"[ Q ] Did you ever try the HIT style of training popularized by Dorian Yates in the '90s?
I honestly believe that Dorian Yates was making this thing up. I heard from a lot of people who watched him train that, just say he was doing two or three sets for this body part, he would not count the previous sets he was doing.
With these sets he was not going to failure so he did not count those sets. I count all the sets, even if I don't go to failure. And in a lot of cases I don't go to failure in each set.
So let's say Dorian Yates would be training chest, I don't believe he is just training two sets and he's done with his chest workout. He does maybe six to eight sets but at the same time he does not count the lighter sets
The problem with such an approach for those who do use HIT is that you have to be careful that you don't get hurt or injured because if you go from zero to 100 in a couple of minutes there is a huge possibility that you can tear a tendon or a muscle or something else.
So I believe that people train like that they also need loads of anabolic steroids. If they go from one light set to one extreme set they need more anabolic steroids. They need a cushion between the muscles and bones in case they tear something up so they need lots of water retention. Without anabolic steroids the likelihood is huge that you will tear something. "
