“But it made me change my perception of life in general.” so as I understand this you have pushed yourself to a near-death experience!?;-) Or do I misinterpret something? But I think that’s a good description for the so-called “see god workouts”.
I think the workout you did, is quite similar to Canova’s. It gives you more of an endurance
stimulus. More than the traditional ME. But probably less local muscle fatigue and therefore less muscular endurance gains.
Canova and Scott are amazing coaches, but also cruel ones;-)
