would you like some cheese to go with that wine?
I found it interesting that you view high volume as pushing yourself past the limit and low volume isn't
I think that its much more possible to push yourself past the limit on low volume.
If you were to honestly and truthfuly give every set every last ounce of energy and effort you had....how many set can you really do? at 3-6 reps, your loads should be at or above 90% of your 1RM and its goign to be rather taxing to do that 4-5 times for every exercise. I think this program is a fast way to achive burn out, not mass.
In all reality, there is nothing past the limit. if you think you reached your limit and continue on, then you weren't honest with yourself, and you were holding back something.
I aslo found it interesting that the majority of your workout place the movements that require the most focus, energy and inenstiy at the end. By the end of your work out, if you are really "dead" as you say, then theres no way you'll be able to give the most important exercises any significant amount of effort and therefore wasted.
And I don't see how you can compare the mindless drones at GNC to PhDs at a university. Why would any self respecting doctorite want to waste their time at a GNC? Thats like saying The "Iron Chefs" should be working at McDonalds instead of on some late night japanese cooking show.

Though isn't it funny, that if this lady knew so much about nutrition, and Susan Kleiner didn't, that Maria C. would be the nutritional consultant to GNC, one of the largest, if not the largest supplement chains in the world, not working at California State University Fullerton? Just wondering.
It seems that our author is not aware of how much of an honor it is to be doing research for a public university in the United States. You will have much more academic freedom working for Cal State Fullerton then you ever will being a consultant to GNC. This writer needs some corporate-world experience before making comments like these.
