While some individuals may respond a little better to higher reps or higher loads, on average a broad range of reps and […]

High Density Training (HDT) is progressive resistance exercise performed with a high work to rest ratio. Although it is possible to perform HIT without performing HDT by allowing a long rest between exercises, most HIT methods are HDT and are performed with little to no rest […]
