All we can say is WOW!
There is nothing more difficult than HIT Training. Talk about putting both your body and mind to the ultimate test.
High Intensity Training (HIT) is the hardest, most intense, and focused type of weight training a person can perform! An entire session lasts no longer than 30 minutes!! (And that’s with both of us training together)
The post HIT workout feeling is amazing. It’s as if all the blood in your body is flowing into the muscles you’ve just trained. In fact your metabolism is so jacked up, you feel a high/energy for hours after the session ends.
When you train in HIT fashion, you are doing ONE SET TO FAILURE. Every rep of every set must count. You must focus on each repetition utilizing perfect form and lifting speed. The mental fatigue produced in concentrating so intensely is something you have to get used to. Once you learn to train consistently in HIT style, you understand the HOLY GRAIL to body transformation.
Nothing is more important to building a fabulously fit body than maximally contracting your muscle fibers. Your body must become efficient at squeezing the target muscle for 2 seconds (working every cross sectional fiber) consistently, rep after rep to create an awesome physique. If you can learn to do this on every set and every rep, you won’t believe how fast your appearance will change.
Markus was personally trained by Mike Mentzer himself. Mentzer along with Arthur Jones were known as two of the original voices of HIT training. Mentzer wrote the seminal book Heavy Duty. At the time it was written, it’s theories were in direct opposition to most established weight training principles and lore. Sadly, they still are today due to so much confusion and different viewpoints regarding proper resistance training theories and beliefs.
Markus is an incredible resource for his training strategies and understanding of exercise science. He has been practicing HIT for over 15 years and is a master at not only teaching HIT principles but demonstrating them as well. Markus is a stickler for getting the most of out every rep. He will gently assist and or spot to make sure you learn to contract your muscle fibers to positive and sometimes even negative failure.
In the following videos, you can watch us train chest, biceps and triceps with Markus.
Notice the all out intensity and maximum effort required to make HIT training work. (Please excuse the conversation at times as performing this type of exercise is no joke).
Fab Fit Over 40 highly recommends the usage of HIT training and it’s various principles to improving your physique. Consulting with Markus Reinhardt will only improve your results.
