    i think i'm seeing the light.

    i'm a serious weightlifter, having started in college to support sports (lacrosse), then continuing into grad school to help keep me sane. i took ten years off and then re-started seriously about 15 years ago. for years, i was doing the basic thing young one's do, psuedo powerlifting to throw up more weight.

    in the last year, i've started more of a HIT, mind-muscle program and am seeing feeling some good things. first the bad news - my strength is down. but the benefits are significant... i've got almost the same size, i'm leaner, my joints don't hurt as much, and my workouts are faster (i have more time to do other things).

    so... for those looking to change things up and preserve joints, give HIT a shot!

    Agree 100%.

    My workout has just changed in the last 5 weeks to HIT. Already seeing gains on muscle.

    Marcus's diary is a great source for knowledge on it. It's in the anabolic lounge.

    Or attempt to.

    I still haven't caught fully up. It's a challenge to keep up with new and catch up with old. That is, if you actually have to sleep or do something like go to work.

    i've read portions and will try to read it through.

    the thing about hit is that it's much more intense, i've never been as fatigued/spent... oh, that's the "hi" in hit.

    Even when not doing full bore HIT training I basically never do over two working sets per exercise anymore. As I've aged less is definitely more, at least for me, especially when it comes to maintaining muscle and even growing a bit. I instituted EOD training years back as well and it's been one of the best things I've done. Fully rested for every workout and mentally ready.
