    I don't think this question is going to be any good here. You'll have the die hard HIT guys say it's perfect and the die hard anti-HIT guys just think it's ******ed.

    Edit: wtf. They *** re-tard

    That's pretty low volume.

    It might work for you, though, if your recovery ability is really challenged. Just make sure you work HARD, and add weight every week.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.
