Dorian Yates' Blood and Guts Trainer

Bodybuilding.com is showing a series of workout videos guided by none other than six-time Mr Olympia Dorian Yates. I've watched the whole and found it very educational on how to use High Intensity Training (HIT) and on other bodybuilding stuff too. For those who do not know it yet, during Dorian's reign of the Mr Olympia (1992-1997), he didn't use the normal approach to weight training. Instead, he developed his own training method, morbidly named "Blood and Guts", which was stemmed from Mike Mentzer's Heavy Duty Training. Blood and Guts helped Dorian gain an incredible amount of bulk and dominate the Olympia stage. Both training methods incorporate a low-volume training, using only single-digit number of sets per body part instead of the conventional dozen or more.

Honestly, I don't use High Intensity Training. Instead, I use the conventional volume training. But if you've read this article before (The Most Important Factor of Training), you'll know that I'm for the opinion that it doesn't really matter how you train, but the effects it has on your body.

Enjoy the videos!
