Interesting read. The training regimen discussed sounds exactly like the HIT regimen found in Dorian Yates' Blood & Guts series but with one big exception: 3 minutes resting between sets. Here's the article quote:
"Regarding rest between sets, it has been determined both in research circles, as well as the real world, that strength gains will improve at a faster rate when resting at least 3 minutes in-between sets, compared to those who rest only 1-2 minutes. When resting for such brief periods of time, the BB?r may experience a more pronounced pump, but his muscles will fatigue due to a build-up of metabolic waste products and/or oxygen deficit."
Has this in fact been proven? Other sources suggest it's still up in the air. Also seems like it will add up to some long gym sessions.
Anyone here using this 3 minute rest rule successfully?
