Great blog Chris.
I am really interested in this Book. I was a little kid back in the day when Ahnuld, Franco etc hit the stages. It seems that over time people have forgotten about the basics. Am currently reading Arnold’s BB encyclopedia and notice that he seems to really stress power training to build a foundation prior to going to anything else. Obviously I don’t have his freaky genetics and am not interested in anabolics so his suggested programs are a little much. But what I get from his book is to stick to the compounds exercises for awhile. To me this makes sense but am wondering if this HIT method of training is going to be too much for someone like me at this point? I am really interested in trying it out but dont want to start something I am not ready for. Basically I just started weight training again a few months ago and am trying to lose body fat at this time. I was stagnant for about 9 years.
My current program is 2 day split so I work my upper and lower body twice per week. My program is planned around squats, bench, chins, rows and deadlifts.
