FAO people in the know about HIT
Think I'm going to try this sort of training having never tried it before. in most articles I've read it just concentrates on the compound movements. No bicep curls, skull crushers etc, so what I want to know is:
1) how effective is this sort of training in gaining mass on your arms?
2) Do gains in your back and legs improve on a bigger scale and as a result, make it easier to gain on the arms once you revert back to your old non HIT routine?
3) or do your arms just grow well through the other exercises ie chins and dealifts etc?
4) To me, it seems that there must be a very fine line between High intesnsity training and training with too much weight ie the form in each rep could be at risk in order to get the maximim intensity out of the workout. how do you know when it's too heavy? does this make any sense?
5) why is a higher numer of reps suggested in the squats and deadlifting as opposed to lower reps in none HIT routines?
6) how much intensity do you use in none HIT workouts? do you go to absolute failiure in each set or would you be able to push out a couple more reps after you've finished the set?
I'd appreciate an answer for each of the 6 questions, so if you know the answers then pelase reply
