"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."

Has anyone tried a two day / week HIT work out going Monday / Wednesday and taking an extended break until the following Monday? (As opposed to Monday / Thursday...)
I was thinking of a HIT workout on Monday, full body, and then on Wednesday, another full body workout, but ease off on the intensity.
If you have tried it, how did it work?
Any other thoughts?
Tyler, I wouldn't plan on easing off from the start. Especially since you'll have extra time until your next workout.
If your Monday workout is hard, you may notice a performance drop on your Wednesday workout if you're using the same workout as before the day change. Which is expected since you have less time to recover. Back off only when it is apparent you need to. Other wise train like you really mean it and make your training productive.
