Just thought I would drop in to say a few words.
I′m just here to say that after a period of experimenting whith higher volume/frequency after a period of two years on the athletes routine, I can say without a shadow of a doupt that my progress has improved a great deal since ditching HD and using higher volume.
Im sorry to say this, as I myself was a staunch HD practitioner, a ′HD purist′. No one here can say that I have not followed Mikes recommendations 100% to the letter, to the point where I was training ONE SET EVERY 4 WEEKS! But I began to become alarmed when, I would be only experiencing a one rep increase every month. I was sure that I was near my potential, boy how wrong I was.
I have experimented with higher volume for a while, and although I am still trying to cut my strength has gone up a great deal. I now am up in reps every two days….NOT EVERY MONTH! This cannot be possible if Mike′s theory was correct.
I know that for a fact, take it from me, I am not one of those guys that tries HD for a month of so, tweaks the volume, tweaks rest days etc. I did it exactly to the book. It is a complete lie, it is not the best, not at all. When I say ′lie′ I dont mean it does not work, it does, and I gained some good mass initially. But is it the ′one valid theory′ , the best, most logicall form of training that will get you to your potential in the lest amount of time……BULL ABSOLUTE BULL.
I am disappointed in Mike because I know for a fact that he was either, lying and cheating just to make money. Or he was simply wrong, and did not have correct knowledge. I hope that the latter was the case. Even so, it is still disappointing.
Well to all the guys I have opposed on here…..Jeff, mdm, tdrag…..hands up, I was wrong, I admit that. But I did always say that I was truly open minded and that if higher volume worked I would accept it. Well it has worked, so I have to admitt that.
