Have you ever taken up High Intensity Training?

Have any "y'all" Paleohackers ever checked out High Intensity Training? such as baye.com or bodybyscience.net

about 3 years back I was a skeptic of HIT I was much more into volume weider method and explosive strength backyard workouts performed in a 4 day spilt. As a 2012 new years resolution, I performed high intensity training for the whole year and document my workouts in my training notebook to progress and overload the muscles. I've been strength training every 6-10 days; my strength and size has improved greatly having a lot more recovery time. If you decide taking up high intensity training I must mention to my fellow cavemen that your button up shirts will become tight in the neck and thy pants will get tighter( my buddies and I call it "tight pockets")from growing muscles.

I have personally been using Scott Sonnon's Kettlebell Spetsnaz program.

I have done it. It definitely pretty good system to gain muscle size, if thats all you care about.

IMHO the problems with HIT are : - feeling very sore for days afterwards - training to failure means you are damaging your nervous system. On HIT I became noticeably clumsier - HIT training does not have any noticeable carry over to being athletic
