Easy now! This calls out for a balanced response.
Dr Darden renewed my interest in strength training and made me a HIT trainee, but I actually ended up on T Nation through some interesting articles by Nick Tumminello. Much to my surprise, Dr Darden reappeared here - which was/is great! I have learned a lot from Dr Darden and am very thankful for the results I have obtained from his ideas on HIT - and will make sure to continue follow his forum. That being said, I love to learn about different strategies - in order to make my workout/program a perfect hybrid construction of my own.
Through T Nation I have met some interesting people, some who I have a lot in common with. I have learned and expanded my knowledge by listening to many forum members here, who also inspires me through their own efforts and ideas. Some HIT, some very different. I wouldn’t wanna have it any other way.
What I am trying to say is: I wouldn’t have discovered Brian Johnston, Fortitude Training or the making of my hybrid program if it wasn’t for sources within AND outside of the Darden forum. It helps me make the most out of my training. That’s what I call evolution! We/us HIT trainees just need to keep an open mind. I mean, after all, isn’t Arnold the greatest?
