"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

MR,

Good to see you again. Where have you been? Haven't heard from you in a while. I gather you don't waste your time arguing the benefits HIT on the forums anymore. Neither do I.

What are your goals now? What are you doing?

Best wishes.

I been busy building up my clientel here in Las Vegas. Its been going great and I just dont have time for being online so much.

I am thinking of putting together a true high intensity video shot in high definition in 2009 as well as compete again.

I currently holding 220 lbs natural and am proud of it - training HIT all the way and will be reaching my best shape ever...I be turning 40 soon, so I better hurry my ass up - LOL

Great stuff, Markus. The static hold with stepped negatives was a very nice (and intense!) touch.

Both videos I saw were isolation movements for back and chest. Are you using pre-fatigue or reverse PF these days?

What equipment line and facility were in those vids?

Regards,
Scott

I like your 'open-handed" approach on the pullover simply pushing with the elbows where the effort should be directed.

Have you ever tried elbows on pads but hands parallel in front with one hand overlapping the other or lightly holding on to a couple fingers of the other ?

Have to be careful because it places one hellva stretch on the lats and shoulders in extended position. You might have to lighten the weight for this variation.

Nice work and build man!

Gee, from what I have been reading on this forum I did not think that HIT- slow controled reps can increase your strength or muscle size. LOL!! Just think how big and strong you would be with 20-30 high speed, oops! I mean high force and tension reps you would be.Plus you would only have to triple the amount of time spent training. Again LOL!!

Seriously though, great job and great form. It shows that those who will work intensly don't have to spend their lives working out. Jeff

Not that I do Rogue HIT, but is that true? How many seconds does it take to do 30 reps, 15 reps and 5 reps ? I think you may end up spending less time working at the gym depending if you count the rest in betweens sets.

With 5 minutes rest between sets. 3 sets equals 15 minutes of rest on Bio's programme.

If you count the rests as 'time spent training' then that would be correct but the work sets could be much , much shorter, so thats swings and roundabouts.

I have not suggested that that particular training model is "brief", I have only suggested that the reps and sets are "INTENSE" and benefit from that level of intensity.

While on the other hand it certainly would not qualify as High Volume either.

John. Just out of interest, how long (would you guess) the approx TUL's of the sets are? And how many sets does the average workout consist of?

THx Simon - I will be filming more clips actually tonite at the gym that I train at. Its called LVAC (Las Vegas Athletic club) - there are around 5 of them here in Vegas. I train people in 3 of the clubs going back and forth - its a great gym filled with a mixture of Nautilus (not the old ones..too bad) and Hammer equipment - I like to use the Nautilus Nitro line myself...i know there not as good a the old skool ones but I need to work with what I got and they seem to fit well.

Thx buddy - great built yourself judging by the small pic...

I am actually using the "open palm"approach in my bicep workouts as well in order to get more focus on the contraction of my bi's versus wasting energy contracting my forearms - it works great with the Nautilus one arm curl machine or Hammer Scott curl machine.

I use a lot of machines btw...not really much free weights - I love the fact that I can really focus on contraction and failure versus having to worry about balancing - it helped me a lot to improve my weakspots which are now my strongpoints, i.e. Chest and Back.

I have no idea since TUL is of little use to me.

But I want to be careful not to sidetrack Mr. Intensities thread.

I am using PF in most of my "weak link" areas such as chest and back - I also came up with a cool PF/Pre-exhaust exercise formation for my romboids which are still lacking..i will be shooting a video about that thi weekend and will add it to youtube so you can all see. I need to get my backthickness up big time ...i got huge wings but from inn a back double bi look flat as a pancake...lol

I'd kill to have your physique, however. :p

What is your current exercise routine, if you don't mind me asking?

Thx for the compliment - I was training with a 2 day routine that was basically covering Legs,Chest and triceps on day1, then Back, Biceps and Delts on day2. This programm worked pretty good but I started to have a problem with doing legs along with chest due to my super low calorie intake right now (I am ripping up for photoshoot and new video!) - so i am switching up to a new revised routine which I will post on my website next week.

Taking the week off completely to start a neutral point - just doing some light cardio and some light pump workouts this weekend.

Markus, thanks much for the posts and vid's. Your thread won't be discussed much because you're everything that our internet experts here say can't happen. They'll ignore this thread and hope it and you go away.

Then once again they can post ad nauseam that their system works better and that heavy weight, low reps, one set to total failure training is somehow lacking. Seems like we've heard all that before.

Thx buddy - I did not always train HIT - but most of my progress came from it. I met MM around 95 and kept at it ever since. I wish I would've known earlier in my career about HIT - I used to train with Dr.Hatfields method of training - I got some result out of it but never as much as with HIT/HD.

The brief and intense workouts are really the way to go for me. I am planning to take my physique even further as of next year. I was out of the circuit for a while...now I am motivated again to proof what kind of results can be achieved with the proper way of training.

Markus, you have great genetics and you will go far. The important aspect to this (that we can control) is your training. You have built an impressive physique with hard work, intensity and I am sure tenacity.

You have taken those God given talents far. Stay at it ! You are showing all how well brief, hard workouts can influence change.
I also met Mike back in the day.

In fact I was working for Nautilus at the time and helped him put on a seminar in Seattle with Dr Mcguff, Greg Anderson, Ken Hutchins and others. It was a fun time. I was also trying to workout for him to be the next Nautilus spokesman.

You know the guy to take the place of Arthur. Not that you could replace him!! Nautilus needed someone to be a little out there to bring the correct training and focus back. Nautilus was bought by Bowflex so it never happened. Too bad. Could have been fun. Jeff

it seemed like it had a lot of old school nautilus but I could not find it last time I visited LA.
