High Intensity Training (HIT)

Over the past 30+ years I have seen many training protocols, some effective and others not so much. While many different methods of training can produce a varying degree of results, it has become very clear to me that it is the intense bouts of exercise that produce the greatest physiological change. In other words the harder you work the greater the return. I did not say the longer you workout, or the more frequently you train, but simply the HARDER you train the better the result. Once you have trained intensely it’s time for recovery; you must allow the adaptive process to take place. The fruits of your efforts will only express themselves after adequate rest!  This does not mean vegetating on the couch for the next 72 hours, but it does mean tempering the intensity of your physical activity to allow your body to repair and thrive.
