In Conversation with John Little: The Six-Minute, No-Nonsense, High Intensity Resistance Training course

John Little is probably one of the most fascinating figures in the High Intensity Training world. He is a deep thinker and a natural researcher, with a profound world view and life philosophy, someone, who doesn’t accept the status quo without challenging it, and someone, who doesn’t consider himself “the expert”, despite his work on the groundbreaking books The Time Saver’s Workout and Body by Science, as author and co-author respectively. We met in Canada, before the pandemic, spending our time together filming the course, John Little’s Six-Minute HIT, which presents the culmination of everything he’s learned about exercise over …

The Rarest Exercise Machines We Tried at Mike Petrella’s STG Strength and Power Gym

As we pull into the parking lot, I see Mike Petrella by the door to STG Strength And Power, which is just as well as the gym is so new to this location there is no external signage. I am excited to catch up with him again after meeting a week previously at the REC conference. We step inside a cavernous space that feels aircraft hangar-like in dimension. This space however is not filled with private jets, instead it acts as a considerable containing space for row upon row of exercise machines. And there are many, no one has done …

The Duo-Extension: A New “Arthur Jones” Machine in 2019

Half a century ago Nautilus inventor, Arthur Jones’ mind was focused on attempting to solve yet another challenge to improve exercise: how to make the squat safer and more effective. When the solution to doing just this became apparent to him, he referred to it in his IronMan magazine column of November 1970 as “The Final Breakthrough”.   What’s the problem with barbell squats that inspired Jones to look to better such a classic exercise? Squats are a relatively high-skill exercise, some people’s knees don’t get on with them and those with low back issues may well find squats uncomfortable …

Jay Vincent, Personal Trainer, Fitness Model and Entrepreneur, Representing a New Generation of HIT

HITuni recently released a new course featuring Jay Vincent. We also had the opportunity to sit down with him and get to know the man and his training perspectives.   Jay’s Introduction to Resistance Training Jay first got in to strength training whilst playing football, initially his gym workouts were somewhat hap-hazard and he followed no specific ethos or approach to training. He simply enjoyed working out and his body seemed to respond well to it. Even when his football days came to an end, the gym bug stuck, and he found it easy to continue the habit of training. On …

Congruent Exercise: How to make weight training easier for your joints

Of course, the long-term detriment will only be there if you stick with it. How many people drop out of exercise because their results don’t measure up? How many people get frustrated, because they don’t continue to improve, as they’ve been led to believe? So, they read another website and try another scheme, or they go the supplement and ergogenic aids route, which can lead to all sorts of confusion and frustration and all that entails.   Much of today’s exercise scene is based on performance. competing with others in a group workout, setting a personal record in a lift, …

A Template for Resistance Training, Updated for 2019

One of the questions that I asked James Steele to elaborate on during our recent interview was: if he were to lay out a template for personal trainers introducing clients to resistance training/HIT, how would such a template look today? Let’s explore his answer, as well as James Fisher’s input into the elements that make up the template. Steele starts out by highlighting that his template is best considered as a base that can be built on and experimented from, to fit the individual client and their needs or as James puts it “their context”. The following is a pragmatic, …
