Dorian is often acknowledged as being extremely analytical. The kind of person who if he’s going to do something, will find out the most effective way to achieve it. This logic led him to adopt and practice the training methods of bodybuilding legend Mike Mentzer and Nautilus founder Arthur Jones. These principles gave him the basics for an effective training system, and after adjusting it to suit his body type and goals it led him to change the game in bodybuilding and become an unbeatable six times Mr Olympia champion.
This ‘Heavy Duty’ training philosophy made so much sense to him because they were saying that to progress, you need training intensity and after that enough time for rest and recovery.
There’s also a limit to how much you can do, and how often you can train. Yes, you can exercise for five hours every day, but you won’t be able to train intensively nor would you be able to stimulate any progress, so it would be pointless.
After decades of trial and error, Dorian developed his unique principles of training and nutrition inspired on the back of Arthur Jones’ Nautilus system and Mike Mentzer’s training program. Refined and applied to win six Mr Olympia titles this refined result-driven method is called HIT and in principle is aimed to put the maximum stress on the muscle for the body to adapt to the stimuli.
Most of us aren’t. And we know it’s easy to make excuses about why not to train or why you’re not making progress. We also know a large percentage of the people are training too frequently, for too long, and with little to show for it.
