  • I do the slow controlled movements all the time. Lifting heavier isn't a goal of mine beyond doing it to build muscle. Besides - I have an old creaky body and using momentum to lift something would surely wound that spine of mine.

    I tried the HIT principle today when I was at the gym and I really felt my muscles working. I couldn't even do the regular 20reps/set that I usually do but I felt more burn in the muscles. I will definitely keep up with this new technique and see how it works for me.

    Coach Dean, this would be awesome to incorporate into a Challenge somehow, especially for those who are trying to build muscle. GREAT ARTICLE

    This is something I will most certainly try in the weight room next time I strength train. My old routine was getting boring and stale, not producing the results I wanted no matter how long I was in there. This sounds like the ticket!
  • Wow. Just came back from the gym and trying out this slow-motion lifting. Incredible. It takes concentration to slow down. Really feeling the control and having good form is something! I am so impressed. This is amazing.
  • I really wish there were some workout plans with this as a goal.

    I will be trying this this evening for my workout, hoping to see results soon.
  • Sorry for the 4 posts... I wish there was a delete feature on these threads...
  • The principals of HIT are the most scientifically sound of all muscle building programs I have encountered. The guiding principal behind this is: do what is required by nature to produce the maximum amount of growth stimulus, and then let your body grow. It works every time.

  • I'm always struck by how important rest is - the more intense the workout, the more necessary the rest! I'm currently doing STS/Cathe Friedrich and find that a full week between body parts is exactly right. My strength is increasing like it never did before. Eating enough of the right things, at the right time, is also key.
  • I do heavy weights in 3 reps, get on the tread mill and return to lighter weights in slow motion. I guess, like this article suggests. My question is; Do you push to exhaustion on each rep or by the end of the third rep?
  • After reading this article, I realized this is what I actually do every time I lift weights. To me, it seemed to make intuitive sense, but it's also the way my dad taught me to work out back when I was in high school. It is not a wonder i gain strength so quickly and can lift heavier weights than all the other women I know. Thanks again for a great article.
