High Intensity Training Explained by Dorian Yates

I have been practicing HIT pretty much since Ihave started lifting, which is around 20 times, and I am practically 60 now, so almost 40 times I havebeen using myself and then later on training other parties, from a variety of different parties, fromladies who wanted to shape up and release value, to professional contestants, professional bodybuilders, so a whole wide range of people that I have expended the method on, and refined it over its first year. I learned the method certainly from construe, booksby Arthur Jones, and it was Mike Mentzer who was Mr. Universe, who was kind of using themethod as well, and I took the principles that already existed and refined them by studying onmyself, keeping records, saving a diary, which I think it is very useful, so you can see thefeedback, what happens if you develop a little bit more frequently or less frequently, or doing morevolume, and so on, so over its first year I refined it to a approach that work for anybody, with a littlevariance, of course, we are all individuals, with various abilities so we have to vary it to theindividual, but the principles remain the same. So that is how I have got the information, because there weren’t, in the beginning there was no internet , now you have internet, you have almost too much information, and it can be confusing for parties, and too youhave a lot of many, of so announced “experts” on the internet with actually no credential , no experiencethat are calling themselves coaches and teaches and making a living, but truly having nobackground in order to do that, so you have to be careful with the information these days, anddecipher because it is almost too much as I say. In professional body building haloes, when Iwas competing, I was know as “The Game Changer”, that was because I wreaked a new levelof muscularity, length and condition to professional body building, and I did that bytraining in average 45 minutes, 4 times per week, when many of my contestants were instructing 2 or 3hours a day, around 6 days a week.So, I proved that this method is more efficient, you get betterresults in a shorter period of time, and I speculate I’ve got the most out of my capacity wheresome of my entrants didn’t, because they were spending too long in the gym, and not followingthe principles of high severity educate. So, the first mainstay of High Intensity Trainingis the intensity of the training, second is the recovery, third is the overcompensation so, athere is a little story, an resemblance that I squandered often in summits and it is very simplisticbut I think it gets the point across. So, muscle rise is an adaptation to a stress, so you made an uncommon stress on your form, in this case on the muscular organisation in order toget a reaction.So, the analogy is, let’s say you have some sandpaper and you scratch it on yourpalm until you crack the bark and it’s red, and it is bleeding a little bit, if you allow thatenough time to recover, then the skin in the end will be a little thicker a little harder, youwill get calluses on your hands like I have from hoisting all the values over its first year, but let’ssay that didn’t allow sufficient time. First of all the intensity, the stress needs to be adequatein order to compel a reaction, so you need to damage the skin a little, so let’s say it is alittle red and it is bleeding, and you don’t quite allow enough time for recovery, for that to mend, and you chafe it again, “youve been” not gonna be anyway, you just gonna get some sore entrusts, so itis very naive but it gets the point across, another example is going out in the sunlight, yourbody perceives a stress from the sun, so your skin will grow more melanin, acquires you skin a littledarker, try to protect from the sunbathe in the future, so that is basically what it happens with themuscle growth, your mas feels that is receiving a stress that is not use to, than it needs torecover from that stress and overcompensate be safeguarded in a future, so it is veryimportant that you deliver a certain threshold of try or ferocity, because if you are workingwithin a zone of comfort, the body has no reason to react, the body time try to keep the statusquo, so you need a stress in order to recover, you need to be able to recover from that stress, so the issue is the pillars of the HIT training. Apart of the obvious physicalbenefit that you get of doing force training, high intensitytraining, there are other benefits, you gonna learn to be consistent, you gonnalearn discipline, and these can apply to really any other areas of your life, you needto have focus, you need to have discipline, to succeed in anything, to succeed in business, inthe relationships, anything in their own lives, this is gonna move you more positive and confident personbecause you’re gonna face challenges in the gym, and you are gonna overcome those challenges, and then other challenges in living are gonna seem easier, so you gonna get more than aphysical benefit from a learn structure.
