Understanding HIT

Here is an article where the author hasn′t a clue as to what HIT really is.

Is it machines vs free weights?


This article should spark some interesting debate?

To start ,what is thier definition of HIT, most of what I have read about football programs that are called HIT are fullbody workouts three times a week, as we all know this creates overtraining. Also are these players training to failure, there is no answer to this question. as far as machines vs. free weights the only thing that was said that I have found to be true is that you are less likely to get hurt. The term explosive is used quite often, which when it comes to lifting is a negative and will also lead to injury be it with free weights or machines. then there is the application of theory to practice, the HD theory if put into practice correctly will out perform any other protocol, free weights , machines, other forms of HIT, it does not matter. We have to remember that the majority of so called HIT enthusiasts do not practice HD, and therefore may not be able to compete with other programs. I have to believe that the nittany lions problems are much deeper than this superfificial article would have us believe.

Anytime I read someone′s HIT?? article, I say to myself, wait for it, wait for it, hah, there it is. 3-4 sets. Just what I figured. They almost always either train with more than one set or even workout daily. I think I saw one where they were doing HIT?? 2 times a day. I always find it odd how so many authors have different versions of it.
