Week 1 Training Journal – Introduction

This week’s training has taken a step up on the intensity ladder.

After blogging on my bodyindesign site about HIT training (high intensity training) I felt the need to shake things up a little.

After about six weeks on the Conan Program (see programs on this site), I wanted to keep the main aspects of that program, namely the heavy singles work, but shake up the hypertrophy work. ‘Building stuff’ as I call it when we are training.

So to simplify, I rotate each strength move over three weeks, working to a single for the day, not balls out single but a good rep. Then I kill the muscle with building stuff after, now the building work I wanted to pick up on some old HIT stuff I have used over the years with great success.

I am not a HIT purist – and have nothing against anybody who trains ‘his or her’ way. That’s all I’m doing – is doing what I love and know I can gain from. Your goal should be to take something from everybody and apply it to YOU. As you advance in years you realise that.

So enough waffle – let’s call these next six weeks or so Conan HIT.

Just so it has an identity.

I moulded into this program as the week went on, by next week – it will be down to three days a week because of the intensity increase.
