HIT Training
so i was reading up on this but i dnt think i completly understand it i mean how do u really get results off doing like 2 sets of like 10 workouts for the whole body three days i week? your suppose to do them at your max and increase it like 5-ten pounds every 2 weeks right? but i mean wouldnt a workout 4-5 days a week where u work out a diffrent part of the body everyday wouldnt that be more effective i mean you do more sets and you work the body part in more then just one workout.. is hit just for building strength or something??

Could you clarify a bit? Based on what you wrote, with HIT you're providing a stimulus for growth three times each week while with the split you mentioned, you're providing stimulus for growth only once each week. You answered your own question, I think.

I read Mentzer's HIT stuff years ago (and tried it). I don't believe in it--I just don't think the science backs it up. For strength/mass you will probably need to be doing 40-60 reps on a body part.

If I remember correctly, Mentzer himself got big on higher volume. He switched to HIT after already building his physique.

Go back 50, 60+ and farther and this is how all the great strongmen trained.

Reg Park swore by it, and he was good enough to be Arnies hero (and play Hercules)! :)
And Dorian Yates has been touting the 1 rep set for years, How many times did he win a Sandow??

Training 3 times a week is a good training program,splits are good as well,but training 5 times a week could be to much.

5 times a week is great for anyone starting out, it'll get the body more used to the weights and will grow with less injuries if done right.
