So, I`ve never read Mentzer`s book nor anyone else`s about HIT, but I`ve always trained with stunning intensity, and as long as I can remember I`ve used less than 3 sets per excersice (usually 2 for my preferred mass builder and 1 for the rest) and preferred rep range from 5 to 8. However, I do not have profound understanding of the principles of the different aspects of high intensity training.
Now, how am I to find the optimal intensity? The slower I lower the bar, the less reps I manage to squeeze with X weight. Could someone experienced give me any tips?
