HI to all Coaches,Including CT,CW,CS…etc.
Recently i join the BIGGER-ARM Challenge, which give me some question about the come back of HIT(bring back by Dr.Darden).
What is your opinion about the following:
2)low volume(down to 1set only)
4)training to failure
5)60%carb diet(that means low protein)
most confuse topic is:
6)lift slowly,sometime use superslow reps.
Can any of you give me some SCIENTIFIC support to oppose these points?
The proof will be in the pudding…although I’d be surprised if many guys will have the strength to knock the skin of a pudding.
I think this challenge is a great idea and I am particulary looking forward to seeing how people are going in a month or two afterwards and then again in 6 months time.
As far as scientific proof goes…there’s plenty but that is easy enough for you or others to find.
Let me just say…variation is good. Will the people on the challenege have a positive result? Probably some of them…depending on their current state of training and their approach to the program. Could I write you another 10 completely different and equally effective programs? You bet your arse.
How about we find some volunteers who would be willing to do the following?
4)non training to failure
5)low carb diet(that means high protein)
6)lift quickly, sometimes using explosive reps.
and then we can do the Pepsi Challenge?
You see one of the problems with most HIT devotees or any other devotees for that matter is that they ignore a huge number of other methodologies that could greatly increase there progress, reduce their risk of injury and lead to far greater performance.
