Just wondering from the group which HIT techniques have you used in your own training that have brought you the best results?
Statics Holds in the Stretched and Contracted positions
DC Style Extreme Stretching
X-Reps and its variations
Forced Reps (positives and negatives)
Negatives Reps and Negative Only
Many I just come up with to shock the system into continue growth, or to be able to make an exercise effective but to reduce stress and increase mental focus. For example some people just cannot focus long enough to do the high rep leg training that Mike Mentzer suggests but if I can come up with a technique that reduces the reps to 4-6 but gives me similar tension time then I have increased that persons mental focus, the exercise was effective at stimulating growth, and it reduce the stress and anxiety of the person, and was able to stree the muscle effectively (overload).
Questions, comments, and critiques welcome,

I use a blitz type approach in most cases, as detailed in Apex by Brian Johnston, so use a whole myriad of high intensity techniques to push past failure.
I like all the ones you've mentioned, although I think you've pretty much covered most of them so don't have any to add right now! Very Happy.
