"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Not bad, Drew.
I like especially how you "walk" away from the leg press ;)

The leg extension -> leg press pre-exhaust combo can take a bit out of the legs :)

i like to refer to that feeling as the "DSM" phenomenon.

DSM= Dead Sacks of Meat ;-)

Hello Drew,

Nice video. One thing I noticed is that on most exercises (except leg ext.) you did very few reps - some 4-5 reps. I didn't count how many seconds each rep was taking however it seemed low.

What is your rep range you go for??

Regards,

Ron

Also on Mike Mentzer's HIT video, it was based on pre-exhaust fashion with low range reps.
Especially on compound exs.

I'm obviously not Drew, but he had a lot of pre-exhaust going on there, so 5+5=10 :) I would have done it the same way.

Ron,

Normally, I go for about 5 to 8 reps on upper body exercises, and 7 to 10 on lower, but when doing pre-exhaust I do a few less on both exercises in the pre-exhaust cycle.

It would be cool to see some full squats, Nautilus pullovers, stiff legged deadlifts, dips and chins in one of your videos. Just a suggestion.

Hi Drew,
It's nice to meet you on this forum; I've enjoyed reading your articles for years (remember reading them on cyberpump in 2002 before they charged for membership).

I liked your video and have a couple of questions about it:

1. I agree your intensity is through the roof for the first two exercises (leg extention + leg press), but then not resting at all before doing the other unrelated exercises seems like it would decrease the intensity you could otherwise generate on those exercises; specifically, if you waited a few minutes before doing each of the upper body exercises, couldn't you have used more weight or done more reps as opposed to doing them when you are completely exhausted?

2. The leg extention and then the leg press; if we agree that as a compound exercise the leg press is more of a mass builder than the leg extention, wouldn't it be more productive to do the leg press first and then do the extentions?

I was not impressed. Was this HIT with 100% intensity?

I really wonder what Ellington has to say about the routine, performance and intensity.

In the bizarro world HIT lives in, pre-exhaust and forced reps are not high intensity. Brilliant.

Drew was using the technique known as "pre-exhaust" on his leg and chest exercises.

If you've never tried them then you dont know what fun you're missing ;-)

I wasn't impressed by the intensity, maybe is just not me who doesnt see that Drew trains at 100% intensity.

But I still wonder what Ell thinks!
