    Wendler said interval training with BB complexes is great, but I don't exactly understand how this would go down.


    would you just speed up your reps for the high intensity aspect? add reps? drop the bar and do light calisthenics as the low intensity, and a regular old BB complex would be the high intensity?


    thanks for any knowledge/ideas. if I'm mistaken and he didn't mean specifically HIIT style training then my bad.

    I would guess he was talking about regular complexes. Was it in that video where he talked about HIIT too ? I'm pretty sure he was actually making fun of it though.

    the irony is that Jim does most of his conditioning with the Prowler which is even more anaerobic than HIIT
