Each case will evaluate the background of the problem, the investigative methods employed, the results, and the interventions taken to resolve the problem. Fates of these early colonists, and their relationships to modern humans, are still subject to debate. Fallio writes that ancestor cults first emerged in complex Upper Paleolithic societies. The major core is multidisciplinary introducing students to the fundamental subjects and the essential knowledge necessary for working in any field related to public health.

The squat and deadlift are generally seen as necessary lifts. And others see this strategy as very dangerous. Trained to failure, or not? Any exercise worth doing is worth taking to failure. That exercise is a staple for some, and it works very well for a lot of them. And although I no longer squat, I owe just about all the size in my quads to very hard and heavy squatting.

I no longer squat because I now get perfectly satisfactory results from leg press. I always squatted to the point of failure. In fact, one might say that I used a variation of rest-pause: Nearing the end of a set, I always knew that I could grind out a few more reps if I fought hard enough for them. I would stand in the upright position, with the bar still on my back, waiting until I could muster enough strength to get just one more rep.

I would repeat this as many times as possible. However, most of the fibers in your quads should be at rest. I never liked assisted reps when squatting. Regardless, this technique proved to be very effective.

What are your thoughts on this? This may very well be true. If it is in fact true that the only important exercise factor for muscular growth is intensity, then of course this creates a bit of a quandary: I would actually be interested in the seeing the results of an experiment whereby subjects train hard, but with sub-maximal intensity, but also with fewer days of rest in between, using only a single set per exercise.

Maybe this would settle the issue. I take a purely scientific approach to things, in the following way: The nature of science is that it is self-correcting. The theory is verifiable and possesses the ability to predict. It has worked well for me. On top of this, I train quite a bit differently than the vast majority of bodybuilders. The combination of all these factors compelled me to write a book on the topic. Fred Hoyle never gave up his theory of a steady-state universe, despite overwhelming evidence that surfaced debunking it.

He went out looking like someone who became blinded by love for his own ideas rather than someone on a quest for truth. At any rate, if in fact it is somehow proven that HIT is flawed, at the very least, it can be said that it approximates the best training method whatever that is shown to be.

The reason for this is that HIT works, and it works very well. I want to get your thoughts on another popular training system…DC Training. It seems to be, at least in practice. Granted, these are all relative terms. My understanding is that in DCT, the workouts for each muscle group should take place as frequently as possible — as long as strength has increased between training sessions.

This period can still be labeled infrequent — because within this context, frequent workouts are those which take place before there has been adequate recovery.

So they are infrequent enough. And as with HIT and really all other strategies of weight training, frequency is the biggest question mark. The rest-pause tactic which is integral to the system appears to be a variation of that employed by a good number of HIT devotees.

So the workouts themselves are both intense and brief. This is just weightlifting. Who cares what the theory is as long as the system works? If a system works, then do it. The one exception is volume training. The reason is that without understanding the theory of HIT, no one would use it. There appear to be so many. Like I just mentioned, high-volume lifting often results in a complete muscle tear. For a bodybuilder, there are few worse things. Quads, pecs, and lats are all at risk.

But biceps appear to be a little more fragile than the others. If I had to pick a dangerous routine, it could be the practice of performing a large number of sets for biceps. I further think Arnold Schwarzeneggar is indirectly responsible for more torn biceps than any other single cause. His routines featured 20 working set for biceps.

A lot of people made the erroneous assumption that this must be the best way to get huge biceps. Granted, there have been many great bodybuilders that got huge biceps training this way. Countless others failed using this or similar routines, and more than a few tore their biceps after enough years of such lifting. Regardless, even with this knowledge, bodybuilders until the end of time will keep doing this. Some people just cannot be swayed.

For them, my only piece of advise is to get good medical insurance — since it costs many thousands of dollars to reattach torn muscles.
