Aaron Baker was born January 9 1960 in Marina Del Rey, California, United States of America. At a competitive weight of 240 ponds Aaron has an off-season weight of around 260 pounds and has been competing as a professional bodybuilder very successfully for nearly 20 years.
He made his professional debut in 1981 and always seems to place in the top ten at any of the top professional bodybuilding shows that he performs in. Unfortunately he has been unlucky in a few Mr. Olympia shows that he has entered and has got placings like 12th and 11th and 9th but has done a lot better in the IFBB Grand Prix and came 6th in IFBB Arnold Classic And Internationals 1995.
Aaron is retired now but has made an enormous contribution to the sport of bodybuilding and will always be remembered for his hard strong looking physique. He squats with well over 800 pounds and can bench 530 pounds and it shows.
Aaron is from the old school of hard-core bodybuilders and he trained with the likes of Mike Mentzer who made a name for themselves as training past the pain barrier and taking training just a little farther. Aaron built his body training heavy and strict.
HIT will target a single body part with a single exercise, and generally a single set of 8 to 12, done to momentary muscular failure, or "putting everything you've got into every set of every exercise; about the only movement not to be done to absolute, utter failure was squats, for the simple reason that getting up 'out of the hole' was dangerous and difficult at best, after having failed with a heavy bar across the shoulders."
The general idea of HIT is to take a certain, limited number of exercises and work them to utter failure, and to do so only often enough to stimulate growth but not to exhaust one's recovery ability.
He is famous for a quote that says "You can train hard or long but you canít do both" which is what started the discovery of HIT and is something that most successful bodybuilders like Aaron knew instinctively. He trains a double split routine and always has which he found got him the best results.
He would train his chest in the morning and his triceps in the afternoons but he would also be very conscious of always mixing it up so that he always got good gains and after competing so many times got that down to a fine art eventually.
Note: Aaron Baker's routine is based on High Intensity Training for more info see The Colorado Experiment Workout
