Dr Darden , I have a hypothetical question for you.
If you were advising a bodybuilder who got good results from whole body HIT training , but could only stick with it for short periods (for arguments sake , let’s say every other month) . What would you advise him to do in between HIT cycles , aside from taking a few days off ?
It is only fair that as I asked the question , that I give you some of the options that I would consider, which are as follows…
- Not to failure HIT
- Split routine HIT like Heavy Duty
- Basic old school training (heavy lifts on basic exercises like Pyramid training)
- Cumulative fatigue training (like a Gironda 6x6)
There are of course lots of possibilities, many of which are dependent on the individual and their reasons for not being able to or wanting to perform classic HIT all year round.
Your contribution would be fascinating and appreciated.
