Last week I put together an article on High Intensity Super Slow Training. This is a type of strength training popularised by Doug McGuff in his book Body By. In Body By Science, bodybuilding powerhouse John Little teams up with fitness medicine expert Dr. Doug McGuff to present a scientifically proven formula for. a research based program for strength training, body building and complete fitness in 12 minutes a week.

Having worked as a health coach and personal trainer for over a decade, he now researches all things health and wellness and shares his findings on his blog. May 17, Aaron Gertler rated it it was amazing. Don’t lay down neuromuscular connections that serve no purpose for the sport you are playing. Maybe there is a lower-tech equivalent – I wish the authors had spent a bit more time discussing how to do that, but since one of them runs a gym chain I guess I’m not too surprised.

Simply because those sports require specific movements that need to be trained and developed. Since then, I’ve used the workout pattern described above to maintain that strength. I found the science in this to be credible not having the background of the authors, I can’t debate itbut I was not so taken with the implementation. The authors are firmly against performing “aerobics” exercises just for the sake of improving fitness.

While I am usually skeptical of anybody who purports to know a quick and easy way to achieve a difficult goal, I have to say that this book has extremely useful information about metabolism, biochemistry and muscle kinetics. The magic of the ARX is that it pushes back against you with an perfectly matched force.


Backed by rigorous research, the authors scifnce a weekly high-intensity program for increasing strength, revving metabolism, and building muscle for a total fitness experience. Along with this, I performed a short interval sprint session every fortnight 5x 6 seconds sprint with 1-minute rest.

Body By Science High Intensity Training Review: My 9 Month Experiment

I found it refreshing for someone with a fitness plan to actually explain to me how things work and why their routine works best rather than just going off of the “conventional wisdom”. But I am extremely glad I did this 9-month experiment.

The writing is crisp, and the authors don’t repeat themselves too often. Jan 15, Dave Bolton rated it it was ok.

I was also astounded that they spent only a few sentences explaining a barbell squat, and that the explained and photographed form was boey. My guest is Richard Chartrand. I have noticed a significant increase in lean muscle mass, as measured by my trainer, and a generally improved sense of well-being.

Some of their claims are more obviously dubious. There dokg not miracle “thing” you can take that will come anywhere close compared to HIT. An avid climber and mountaineer during his younger days, Andy followed his twin brother Jason into the world of extreme endurance sports more than ….

Gary Knight has been a HIT advocate, practitioner and coach for over a decade. You literally get one shot at each lift.

Body By Science High Intensity Training Review: My 9 Month Experiment

Nov 08, Alex Moskalyuk rated it it was ok. If you have difficulty with progression, that is an early marker that you need to start inserting more recovery days, because you are now accumulating enough strength to produce enough of a workload that it is difficult for you to recover at that particular frequency.

Seniors especially should read this, though I will admit that I skimmed some of the “technical science” portions.

But all of this training has been at a moderate to high volume — 2 or 3 sessions a week, up to 6 or 7 sessions a week. Before you decide to follow their training protocol, it would be a good idea to decide what you are training for, and then decide where strength training fits into your training program. First with the weight lifting they do go into the degrees of isolated movements to protect joints and isolated muscle development for strength.


If you have that degree of intellectual understanding, then you will be able to override the instincts that otherwise would intercede to prevent you from stimulating the production of a positive adaptive response from your body.

Strong muscles prompt a strong body in every way and too much repetitive movement running, cycling is actually detrimental to your body over time. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. However, I personally enjoy lifting big weights.

This article may rely excessively on sources too closely associated with the subjectpotentially preventing the article from being verifiable and neutral. I work out once every four or five days, for minutes of actual lifting and about the same amount of rest timewith some Tabata intervals thrown in once in a while for cardio.

The best analogy is this — imagine a chest press machine that is designed in a way so the weight is changing in real time — every millimetre you press the weight forward, it adjusts based on your strength at the new position.
