Hardgainer HIT Training

High Intensity Training for Hardgainers

Of all the possible workout approaches out there, the high intensity training approach is one of the best suited to the hardgainer. That's because a hardgainer needs a workout that is fast, deep, intense and over quickly. Those parameters describe the HIT training scheme, so a hardgainer should spend most of the training effort on HIT workouts. Here is a HIT workout that any hardgainer can use:

Monday
Warm up
Squat 2 sets of 10 reps
Deadlift 2 sets of 6 reps
Bent Row 2 sets of 8 reps
Chins 2 sets of as many reps as possible
Barbell curls 1 set of 15 reps

Wednesday
Warm Up
Bench press - 2 sets of 6 reps
Military Press - 2 sets of 10 reps
Cable lateral raise 1 set of 15 reps
Dip - 2 sets of as many reps as possible
Cable pushdown - 1 set of 15 reps

Friday
Calves 2 sets of 12 reps
Ab crunches with dumbbell 2 sets of 10 reps
Stiff leg deadlift 2 sets of 7 reps

Remember, for this workout to work, you have to train extremely intense.

Also, stick in the two set range, which is similar to what the top HIT men - Dorian Yates and Mike Mentzer, would use in their workout.

Note sometimes hard gainers talk about the idea of performing only one set per exercise, but many hardgainers are not developed to the point of being able to get a maximum workout from a single set, so stick with a double per workout for the most part.
