by the way, for everyone who says that HIT sucks, look at the guy in the video… very large and probably pushing 50
Wait…he qualifies as “very large” to you? He looks athletic, period. I wouldn’t exactly pause and stare should he walk passed in the gym. I do give him credit for being in shape, but “very large”? His chest is actually UNDER developed from the looks of the vid along with his shoulders. He has relatively big arms and legs and that’s about it.
Also, the ONLY people I usually see training with slow reps are small guys. I have doubts as to the guy in that video even training that way even part of the time during his overall training life.
I lift relatively fast when I train. It works, not just on me but pretty much every other big guy out there.
Alright fair comment, he’s not “very large.” I just think he looks built in relation to his age.
Yeah, but the point is he probably didn’t achieve what level of development he does have by training in that fashion. Working in a large fitness facility that was home to a certain exercise “guru” who will go nameless, I saw many top athletes come into the club to attempt to get a competitive edge through training with “the best.” One of these idividuals happened to be an EXTREMELY jacked NFL wide-receiver.
He trained with the aforementioned “guru” twice and never returned because I believe he realized the training methods were sub-par compared to his prior training. Yet, if one saw him train with these method on either of these occassions, one might conclude it was how he got jacked to begin with, rather than a brief stint with a “guru” who didn’t deliver.
