HD testimonials on Cyberpump

Just wanted to drop a note to give my history and success with Heavy Duty and HIT.

I started training when I was 21 years old. Weighed in at about 160 lbs at 6′2". Pretty skinny. Yeah, I was a Weider follower. 5-6 days a week. 2 hours (UGHH!!!) a day. I made very minimal gains. I went up to maybe 170 lbs. Took a few years though. Kept this torrid pace up for about 3 years. Then I read an article by Dorian Yates about volume and training. I cut back on my training. Say, 4 days a week and cut back on the # of sets. It started to work some and I picked up another 5-10 lbs in the next year.

Then the big day came. The AAU Mr Maryland was held in the summer of 1993. This person by the name of Mike Mentzer was holding a seminar. I was so frustrated with my training by now, I said what the F*%K and spent the money to hear his spiel. What could I lose. Nothing else was working. What an enlightening experience. I bought his book, read it from front to back (several times) and started on a journey that took me from 180 lbs to a present weight of 230 lbs in about 4 years (and still growing). Alot of my gains have come from the last few years when I read his Heavy Duty 2 book and applied the principles in there.

Weider is old news. Step aside and make room for the HIT and Heavy Duty squads. We′re here to stay.

What′s up guys? Cyberpump is such a god send! I was surfing the web and fell into misc.fitness.weights I bet you know there are a lot of assholes in that News Group (Tuff Room). That group was very anti-HIT big surprise right?

This is what shocked me there was one guy who stuck up for Mentzer and HIT in general. This guys is no stranger to High Volume as he was a Marine. This is the amazing part of it all, he was 200 pounds or so and he got into a Motor Cycle accident. He lost one leg and his body weight went down to 150 pounds. He even thought of suicide between his wife leaving him and taking his child he needed to vent so he decided to try his first HIT program (Heavy Duty 2).

He put on 31 pounds of muscle in a pretty damn short period of time I forgot what the time frame was but it was incredible (with one leg no less) Then these scumbags cut him down on that News Group. Then I realize that HITers are truly a Minority group.

I thought I would share this with you just to say thank god for Cyberpump it is the only home for HITers!! A real nice one to boot!! I just wish there was a HIT message board or News Group for guys like us the HITers. Thanks for Listening. I had to vent, Purge, Release, Cleanse. Take care and keep HITing it!!!! > 🙂

Training on and off for countless years. I′ve been on the Mentzer system for 6.5 years. I′m not a very consistent trainer as my work has me travelling a fair amount. so that has hurt my progress. I have a very bad sweet tooth and I′m partial to Scotch which doesn′t help me no doubt.

I have gone from 210 lbs to 280 lbs and gained 3.5 inches on my biceps. My bench is up 200% to 140 kg (I′ve never been a good bench presser), My squat is 180 Kg on the smith machine (I′d rather fight Mike Tyson than do free bar squats),I can do dips with 35 kg of weight added when I previously couldn′t do 1 at 210lbs. My calf raise is 273kg.

None of this is probably impressive but they have been good gains for me as someone who is not naturally athletic in anyway and I make steady progress whenever I can get a run of workouts together.

My goal is to add weight and reps to my workouts as often as possible.

I belong to 3 yahoo HD sites, I think I might already belong to that one, I just dont′ remember the bluegrass thing? Whats the URL for your site?

This is why all successful HD practitioners stay away from the internet lifting sites, they need no help and they are on the right path, so I guess if you put Mike′s ideas into practice, they work out for you from the begenning. I guess people successful with HD get tired of all the over analyzers and volume guys out there.
