In the book The New High Intensity Training by Ellington Darden he writes an anecdote concerning Arnold Schwarzenegger and his inability to bring enough intensity to the workouts whilst under the brief tutelage of Arthur Jones.
Thing is if this great bodybuilder cant bring the desired amount of intensity to this particular training protocol what hope does that give to the average trainee?
Darden goes on to report that Arnold at one point ( according to Casey Viator ) “…crawled outside and spilled his guts on the grass”. That shows me incredible intensity must have been employed by Arnold but evidently not enough to warrant him being afforded the respect of the HIT fraternity. It has been an extremely rare event for myself to puke when I workout so does that mean HIT is beyond me?
