I recently went to see my coach for a 2 hour session dedicated to advanced fat loss protocols. He trained 4 x Mr Universe, Charles Clairemont, amongst many other competitive bodybuilders, many of which are natural. Attached image is one of his recent clients.
While I was waiting for my consultation, he had two clients with him who both had that look of 'competitive physique' about them even though they were covered in thick clothing. Few minutes later he shouts me over and introduces me to one of them, a female physique competitor with a shit load of competitions wins, great britain, world, europe etc.
He points to me and says "This guy here keeps reading shit on the internet about high intensity training. How much high intensity have you done?" and she smiled and said "err.. what's high intensity?". Then he showed me a pic of her on stage with like 6% body fat.
So, let's just throw it out. Who gets ripped, and i mean RIPPED on HIIT and who sticks to steady stage 60% VO2 max training?
Suggest pics and any scientific (real) reasoning. Not just "oh, well, HIIT makes your metabolism... better."
