“Intensity builds immensity” (bodybuilding adage)

"Intensity builds immensity” is a bodybuilding adage that has been credited to the professional bodybuilder Kevin Levrone since at least January 2001. The saying means that intense workouts build a stronger body ("immensity").

The saying is also sometimes given as “intensity equals immensity.” One frequent poster at Bodybuilding.com credits Lee Haney for the saying, but the earliest printed citations all credit Kevin Levrone.

Wikipedia: Kevin Levrone
Kevin Levrone (born July 16, 1965) is a former IFBB professional bodybuilder, blogger, musician, actor and health club owner.

Levrone was born to an Italian father and an African American mother on July 16, 1965 in Baltimore, Maryland, the youngest of six children. Aside from his career as a pro bodybuilder, Levrone has also worked as an actor and musician. Levrone first started training at Metro Fitness in Linthicum, Maryland. He won his first contest at 190 pounds. Over his career Levrone has earned 22 professional IFBB wins. He won the Arnold Classic two times (1994 and 1996), and came second at the Mr. Olympia competition four times over the span of a decade (1992, 1995, 2000 and 2002). He has not officially announced his retirement.

V.I.T. - Variable Intensity Training
There is a saying that goes like this “intensity builds immensity”. This in fact may sound corny but it does have some truth to it. This is especially true in the V.I.T.® program. Have you ever noticed that when you are not focused on your workout, you will end up going through the motions but when you focus in on your workout, you will end up having a great one? Intensity is the key to using the V.I.T® program successfully.
