Thanks again to everyone who watched and sent in questions for the discussion Gymchat 220 : High Intensity Training – HIT [with Josh Hewett and Chris Lutz] – much appreciated. If you haven’t seen it yet (or simply want to go over a particular point again), here’s the entire video.
It was a great discussion. Josh and Chris discussed the different ideas within HIT, a definition of intensity, progressive loading, the ‘always more to learn’ concept, research relating to HIT, intensity and the Borg RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) scale, intensity as a training variable, workout length, machines vs free weights, split routines, training volume, rep ranges, tempo & rep speed, explosive movements, time under tension, fatigue and injuries, isometric holds, strength/hypertrophy/fat loss goals; and a whole lot more. If you’re ready to find out what High Intensity Training’s all about, make sure you watch this one.
