    High Intensity Training.


    What do you guys think about it?

    If you don't recall it's Mike Mentzer's (Mr.Universe of 1978) method of bodybuilding. The method revolves around doing 8-12 reps of a heavy weight, the idea is to force your muscles to adapt to the new weight which forces them to grow. You workout once every six days to allow sufficient time for your muscles to grow and you don't want to work out before then because you could "short circuit" your growth process.

    Anyways, thats just what i got from the video I have. (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)

    I got my workout from the video which is
    Day 1: Chest/Back
    Day 2: Legs
    Day 3: Delts, Bicepts, Tricepts


    So anyways what do you guys think about HIT

    It only takes about 48 hours for your muscles to recover if your eating and sleeping properly.
