I combined the before and after pictures of the High Intensity Training Experiment into just one image and posted it below. I wanted to show you the results you can achieve with High Intensity Training.
If you are used to seeing the dramatic changes achieved on TV, where a 300 lbs guy gets lean and muscular over a period of a six months, then my results may not be that impressive. However, I can guarantee you the guy in the TV advertisements was sweating away in the gym for hours on end trying to lose weight for those commercials. I, on the other hand, achieved my results in 1 hour, 17 minutes, and 32 seconds total. That’s the total for the whole month! To me that’s pretty amazing, considering that I worked out less in one month than your average person works out in one day.
On top of that, I gained 6.7 lbs of muscle and as you can see from the pictures, I’m bigger and leaner after just 9 workouts – the majority of them lasting less than 10 minutes.
Edit 01-17-10: Since posting the results of the HIT Experiment, my picture has appeared on a few forums and blogs. Some of you can’t believe I got these results from only 9 workouts over 30 days and have insisted that the results are askew due to the second picture being a little bigger than the first. I want to reassure everyone that’s simply not the case, so I’ve posted the before and after pictures with matching symmetry. I’ve also added red lines in order to help the skeptics who still have problems differentiating between the two pictures.
