"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

Since my birth year was 1943, most of them are meaningful to me — especially since my wife and I have two children less than 5 years of age. Here are the traits:

Truth About Fast/Slow-Twitch Muscle

The following excerpts are from 1976 discussions I had with Dr. John Kalas,
 who was Chief of the Department of Pathology, West Volusia County
Hospital, DeLand, Florida. A subsequent article was published in Athletic
Journal
(January 1977) as a rebuttal against the popular practices of
coaches and athletes to "train fast to be fast." The concepts
explored within these answers are as relevant today
as they were 30 years ago.

in one of my HIT Tips in 2004. The entire
story is worth reviewing.
