Everyone has had this experience. You check your email and there is one in particular that catches your eye. The subject line promises to teach you everything you need to know about High Intensity Training. You read the email and follow a link to a website that has a ton of sales pitch information. It makes alot of different promises about what you will be able to do if you just purchase this program from them. Some of the promises you might see:

Checking It Out
At this point you should be asking yourself “Do I need all of this?” You should also be checking out the claims they are making on their site. I just Googled “high intensity training” and came up with 4,480,000 hits.
You will note that I have circled some incredible free resources on High Intensity Training that came up at the top of the search results. With this information available to you for free, do you really think you will need to spend $70 on the latest program that teaches you about High Intensity Training? How is reading this latest eBook going to help you any more than reading one of these free web resources?
Rehashed Information is Information Overload
If you click on the very first link in the search results window on Google (after searching “high intensity training”) you find that this system of training was popularized in the 1970’s by Arthur Jones. The article goes on to discuss some great bodybuilders who have used this training system. At the end of the article it lists several more references for High Intensity Training including a forum dedicated to the topic. All of these resources are free.
Remember, the point here is that the program you may have received is all about rehashing information freely available to you on the internet. If this eBook advertisement simply stated that it was an attempt to organize existing information into a format that would be useful to the reader that is one thing, but it is making claims that it has some secret information that will only be available to you if you buy the eBook. It is at this point that your critical thinking skills need to kick in.
Who needs to pay $70 for something that is available on the internet for free? Remember, rehashed information is information overload. You don’t need it and you certainly won’t want to pay your hard earned money for it.
