Right so train to one set failure and be able to run up 15 flights of stairs in full gear. I don't think so. That study is bullshit otherwise endurance athletes would train with HIT. The only thing HIT has going for it are a few non repeatable BS studies and nothing else to show for it.


LOL, yates didn't train in HIT.

One set to failure...per movement

Like I said, you are ignorant. Well, ignorance ain't bliss, ignorance is ignorance.

Have a lovely evening:)

Oh and go out and run a timed 3 mile run and then tell me how HIT has improved your cardiovascular endurance.


I wont, I value my joints and connective tissues, but as it happens, I recently came 2nd out of 45 (several of whom are "cardio bunnies") in a team building event with work that involved rowing a mile and an army assault course.

John Little??? I went and listened to a bit of that interview you posted. Complete rubbish. Saw a pic of him on his website too. He looks like a freakin couch potato!
Make no excuses to skip a training session. Feel stressed, sad, sick or tired? Go train. Your friends, your heart, mind and body will lie to you. Telling you that you need that recovery day. Go ahead, stay home. I'll be training that day and getting better no matter what.

Look Rob, I'm obviously biased against the way you train. Just as you are biased against how I train. We should just leave it at that. I would never go on your log and tell you that your training philosophy is shit. I'll do that here and elsewhere on the forum but not on your log. Why? Because it's a self professed HIT journey, that's why. What's the point?

9 days out!

Went to do a crossfit workout with the academy guys

Partnered up on everything but 1mile we had to run with our partner.
One round of:
100 burpees
100 pull-ups
600 jump ropes
100 kb swings w/53lb kb
1 mile run

1st - 20:57 my team
2nd - came in around 22 min
3rd - came in around 22:30
4th - came in around 24 min
5th - came in around 26 min

All my strength and conditioning is paying off. I'm going to be the old man that can keep up with the best. I felt like I could do another round or 2 and worked on some strict ring muscle-ups after the workout.

A couple hours later and I'm a bit tired. I'm feeling the accumulation of this weeks training. I've been carbing up and will sleep well tonight, for tomorrow I will find a long steep hill and run up that bastard many times.

11/06/15

I woke up this morning a little sore, but feeling huge and strong. I love that feeling. Must have been all the potatoes I ate yesterday. I know I was supposed to run hill repeats today but couldn't decide on which hill and I didn't want to drive across town to find a good hill so I just hit the trail. I did the 3 miler twice so I guess it was a repeat. :D

6 miles with 1800' elevation in 1:09:55

Since I knew I was going to do it twice I wasn't trying to break any records on the way up the first lap and made it up and down in 34 min turned right around and went up again. Oh I found out what the callouses that grow on the sides of my big toes are for. I cut them off and my toes were hurtin big time. Going up the second time wasn't as bad as I thought but I def didn't have the same power output.

I really don't think I can get much faster unless I drop some weight. At least 10 lbs. I'm not willing to do that though. I don't want to sacrifice that much strength. Tomorrow and Sunday I will rest.

Some of them are. The conditioning and trail running workouts are hard but fun. My strength workouts aren't very hard although I do push to make improvements. It's kind of a bummer that I like these different training styles. Improved running ability negatively affects squat power but I guess powerlifting and calisthenics could go together although the lower body mass gained from squats slows down upper body calisthenics progress. If crossfit wasn't so retarded I'd probably be into it, but I just can't get over how stupid high rep oly lifts are and those awful kipping pull-ups....I know guys that can do many kipping ring muscle ups but not one strict one. Wow how'd I get on this rant. Lol. Must be dehydrated from the run. Ok I'll bring it back around.

How hard a workout is does not necessarily correlate with its effectiveness to produce the change you're looking for.

11/07/15

Today was going to be rest, studying and helping my son get caught up on some homework. I went to bed early and got about 9.5 hrs of solid sleep in and was feeling great. Got in some studying but got a bit antsy. I noticed my back muscles feeling strong and just a tiny bit of a residual soreness in my chest. So I thought I might as well take advantage and put a little training in. That's the advantage to a home setup.

Training:
Pull-ups x 15,15,15 +3 rep
Pike ring push-ups leg extended x 10,10,10 +6 reps

Chin-ups +50lbs x 6,6,6
Archer ring push-ups x 10,9,8

Overall felt very strong and made huge progress on pull-ups. I'm reaching where I was previously with the pike push-ups. The archer push-ups blasted my chest and I was blown up like a pectoral balloon from the massive pump. I cannot begin to express how beneficial the rings are. If I had to choose one training implement it would be the rings. They are that awesome.

+=improvement over last session

Another night of wonderful sleep. I ought to keep that up.

AM training

5 mile trail run with 1250' elevation in 51:36. 19 sec improvement. Feeling really good. I made it to the top a minute faster than previous but didn't quite run as fast on the way down.

PM training

Ring Rows x 15,15,15,15,15 +7reps

HLR toes to bar x 12,12,12,7 +2reps and added a set

I was going to do some archer dips but the strength wasn't there so I skipped them. I'm happy with the progress on rows and leg raises. Particularly the rows which for some reason I've never been super strong on. I'll be doing sets of 20 in no time.

11/10

4 days out!!!

Training: session 1
3 mile trail run with 900' elevation in 30:07!! Just blew the doors off that one with 2:15 improvement!! What the hell?!? The first mile sucked big time, it always does. There's 600' of climb in that first mile and it hurts like a SOB! and I can't seem to get that mile in under 12 min. I dug in after that though.

One thing I did differently today was have a pre-run drink of 12oz rice milk plus 8oz soy milk with about 1/8 tsp sea salt about 10 min before the run and another of the same after I got home.

Session 2:
I mounted my rings from a higher part of the garage which now allows me to do muscle ups and dips with my legs straight. Sweet! I should have done that 6 months ago!

Ring Muscle-ups x 2,4,4
Archer ring dips x 5,4,4
Bulgarian ring dips x 5,5,5
Tricep push-ups x 11,10,10

Tricep push-ups - starting position is from the elbow plank, push up from there is one rep. This was a good power/hypertrophy workout.

Hit some stairs today. There's this sweet set of stairs in La Mesa going up the side of a hill for 3 blocks or so. 295 steps and pretty steep.

Just 4 rounds of running up with 20 squats at the top and running back down. The guys that were with me refused to do anymore. Just a lil overtraining to pound in the conditioning.

Good luck in your Academy course! Will you still be posting after you've started?
