HIT for bodyweight exercises?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,


I understand that High intensity training is done for a brief period, low frequency and low volume. But I am experimenting with bodyweight movements like dips, atlas pushups, diamonds etc. I am doign two sets of each - so basically 6 sets for the chest. Is that overkill, considering these are only bodyweight exercises? If it's pure weight training, I'd only do one or two sets for chest or any muscle group.......but since this is bodyweight, I felt I could increase the volume a bit.


Is this right, or do I keep the volume low, like maybe three sets instead of six?
