"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."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

Hi, looking for peoples opinions and experience with the different variations of HIT, the 3 basic being a full body, 1 exercise per body part routine 3 x a week. Something more of a split like in Mike mentzers Heavy Duty with more rest, pre exhaust sets ect (i currently use something along these lines) or heavy explosive movements with one set per body part but 2-4 exercises per body part like dorian yates.

Full body is better than a split.

If you want to include more/various exercises,
do an A-B, A-B-C, or even A-B-C-D rotation.

Explosive movements are completely unnecessary unless you plan to be an Olympic weightlifter.

Pick one, and then modify it to fit your own results. Do not make the error of doing things just because they are written if they don't work.

My advice? If you are currently benching under 250 pounds, squatting and deadlifting under 350, stick with more frequency at first and maybe a little more volume, like a Darden routine or a Yates Routine.

I think basic is best. To me, that means a handful of exercises that cover the whole body, 2 x's a week. It makes analysis and adjustments easy when you do the same workout. 3 x's a week overtrained me after the beginner stage, as I think it has for most.
