It's going to be interesting to see the reaction of the MetCon/HIIT communities once the knowledge in Q&D makes its way to the general public.
Additionally, does anyone know of any studies been made on "athletes" that have done excessive MetCons over a long period of time? In Pavel's article above he associates this type of training with the "dead" aspect of Q&D. It would be interesting to see the state of the energy systems and if there are any health related issues as a result of this type of training.
