I recently read on Dr Squat's site an article he wrote about all these different training systems out there (e.g. HIT, POF, etc etc)
and how these training systems are simply different interpretations of the same basic weight training science.
Which means, it's all razzle and dazzle by whoever came up with these new training methods.
Here's a quick link to it:
