My whole point is that, yes HIT became big money for somebody. Maybe not for you, or Gordon, or Mentzer, but somebody somewhere along the line once made a boatload of bucks off of it. I'm not saying this as a detractor. It is a sound concept in my opinion. But the schysters, they are everywhere. HIT ain't a money rip-off, but rip-off artists got involved. And maybe that's why some people feel the whole thing is tainted.

Just an observation. Good interview.

From a business standpoint, it is very lucrative. However, from a training and scientific stanpoint, it is sound.

1. How long can your skeletal muscles and CNS handle High-Intensity exercise?
2. Testosterone Levels drop off about 30-45 minutes anyway

My personal workouts range around 30-60, but if I did HIT, I would only need about 20
