Old School Bodybuilding HIT Training
Old School vs New School Bodybuilding High Intensity Training
It seems that change is inevitable, and bodybuilding and high intensity training have
gone through many changes in the last 30 years or so.
Most people assume that change is for the better and sometimes it is - but not all
Sometimes change just complicates something that should be simple and other times
it actually worsens or ruins something that was perfectly good or worked great to begin with.
So are the changes made to HIT training, justified? Does high intensity training work better now then it did back in the day? Or is it giving worse results today due to the changes that have been made to it?
Let's examine and compare old HIT vs new HIT.
Old School High Intensity Training
Here are some of the principles of classic HIT workouts:
2 to 6 sets for a body part
Each muscle worked 2 to 3 times a week
3 to 4 workouts a week
Good form with some cheating at the end of a set
Rep speed of 1 to 2 seconds up and 1 and 2 seconds down
And what were the results?
Casey Viator won the Mr America at only 19 years old
Franco Columbu added 3/8 of an inch to his arms in one workout
Arthur Jones gained 15.44 pounds of muscle in 22 days
Casey Viator gained 63.21 pounds of muscle in 28 days
Mike Mentzer won the Mr. Universe with a perfect score of 300 points and
he also won the heavyweight class of the Mr. Olympia, once again
with a perfect 300 score from the judges.
Ray Mentzer won the 1979 Mr. America
Eddie Mueller gained 18.2 pounds of muscle, adding 2 inches on his arms,
4 inches on his chest and 4 1/2 inches on his legs all in only 10 weeks.
New School High Intensity Training
Now lets look at how people are doing HIT workouts these days:
1 to 3 sets for a body part
Each muscle worked only once a week or less
1 to 2 workouts a week
Ultra strict form and no cheating
Rep speed as slow as 10 to 20 seconds up and 5 to 10 seconds down
And what kind of results are we seeing these days?
While people are still getting some results, it seems it is taking them years
to get the same gains that used to be attained in months using old school
And some using new HIT never reach the type of results that people got in the
So it seems that many of these "new discoveries" and "improvements" that have
occurred over the years were really just personal opinions and impediments that
watered down the results over time.
My advice is just like Apollo Creed said in Rocky 3
"We've been living modern, but now we're gonna train old!".
