  • 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. - 1/9/2010 11:16:40 AM

  • 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. - 4/4/2009 8:07:43 PM
  • 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? - 3/12/2009 10:12:19 AM
  • 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. - 3/9/2009 1:33:06 PM
  • I'd like to try this. It makes sense to me, especially since I've been going to Body Pump classes lately where the reps are high and the weight is low, and I think I might actually be losing strength (but building endurance). It's time to try something else. I just went and ordered the book on my local library's website. :) Thanks for the idea! - 11/30/2008 10:59:25 AM
  • This has always been my method of weight training - the heaviest weight possible for fewer reps and in perfect form. It builds a beautifully sculpted body and maximizes my time at the gym. - 11/30/2008 9:50:15 AM
  • I've tried this method before and definitely built muscle more quickly. It's hard, but worth it! - 3/31/2008 11:40:18 PM
