    ian's article on the workout of his life

    I just read his article about doing one set of these exercises in a row every four days.

    : Squats.
    :: Leg extensions.
    :: Chins.
    :: Decline Press.
    :: Dead lifts.
    :: Shoulder Press on Hammer Style machine.
    :: Curls thick bar.
    :: Rope Pushdowns.
    :: Dips.
    :: Calve Raise

    I kind of like the idea of it but do you think it is neccessary to do them at a quick pace or not. Has anybody else done something like this and what were the results?

    Or better yet, HIT, as it is HIT training that is described. The exercises in the article should be performed slowly enough that there is minimal momentum to each motion (i.e., no swinging.)

    It's also necessary to gauge for yourself how much recovery time you need. Some people need longer than 4 days to recover before the next workout.

    Plenty of discussion of HIT has been done here, and the consensus is that it *can* work well, but the emphasis on training to failure every time may be misguided.

    Hope this helps.
