"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."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

I was recently in the gym with a friend of mine along with some other kid. We were all discussing training. They kept insisting that whole body workouts were for beginners and that a trainee must work out six days a week. The majority of the guys that go to my gym are firm believers in not using whole body routines as they are for "beginners" and anything less than 5-6 days is no good.

There are too many people that go to the gym not realizing the facts. That a trainee does not need to workout 5-6 days and they don't need to use ridiculous split routines. But anyway what do you guys think?

There are many ways to achieve your fitness goals (within reason). It really comes down to a matter of personal preference.

Some HIT folks tend to be dogmatic and so do people who use "conventional" training methods.

Dave, this one is easy, just ask that kid ...."Why six days?" just keeping asking him "Why?" I bet he doesn't get past the third one, and probably answers something like "It just IS..ok!!".....

Experiment with different things,and find what works best for you.Then enjoy your workout.your question reminded me ,of in the early 80's when the weider -arnie 20 sets per body part 6 days a week was supposed best method.I had to work plus race cycles and have life beside the gym.I started doing a mentzer style workout,that worked great for me.i trained natural and super setted opposing muscle groups.

mostly big compound moves,the other guys would make comments,gee your done already etc. At first i'd just smile and say yep all done and have something else to do.After a while they became a pain,so i would tell them.I must be doing something right because my training is actually working and even though they were on roids they did'nt seem to be making any progress. actually i used a few choice words and different tone of voice.They finally quit making comment after that.The majority of these people never changed their workout, even though it did'nt seem to work and just kept doing the same thing until they quit.
