"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."

Wow, what a physique! I think I'll go put beyond brawn on ebay now. What a letdown. Another intellectual weight training guru who looks like he never lifted. Seems to be a common theme these days.

I always enjoyed reading McRoberts. Because he's like most of us...a true hard gainer. I like the fact that he talks alot about his own personal experience with working out-injuries, which exersises to avoid, etc. He seems like someone you can relate to.

So, according to your logic, a good trainer has to be extremely big, or a bodybuilder, say like......Arnold?

I have to agree with Davise in that this guy looks like he never worked out in his life,which explains why his photo is never shown.Nothing against him for his effort but it explains alot.

I think some people are still misguided about how big genetically typical natural trainees can get.

I posted a thread some months ago called pre-1950 physiques. Check it out. They were the elite physiques of the drug-free era. Dr. Darden reckons only one in a million people have the genetics to build muscles to this contest-winning level.

And if you fall into this category, even if it is only for one bodypart, that bodypart will probably already be bigger than the typical person.

p.s. McRobert claims to have done 400lbs x 20 in the deadlift at a bodyweight of 190lbs at 5ft 9in.

Read Dr. Darden's article on this website: The Potential for Huge Muscles.

Can you deadlift 400lbs for 20 rest pause reps?

What picture are you guys looking at? When I click on the link I just see a head shot, you can't tell anything from that.

while AJ stands for INTENSITY
McRobert stand for SAFETY


combine those two for live long hard and save lifting


(in an early hardgainer mag were some pictures of mcrobert working out, judging from those photos he definitely did the 400x20)

I remember a quote from Arthur Jones that I read years ago, and have never been able to find again. It went something like this. If you are explaining something (training, diet, or anything for that matter), and the person you are talking to responds with "where did you hear that!" Arthurs advice was "Walk away....you are talking to an idiot". Arthur Jones wasn't always "Big". In fact most photographs of him look like nothing more then an average old man. Would you discredit his principles based on his appearance? Judging anything Stuart McRobert has written based on his appearance, or even whether or not he "trains" instead of the content of his writings is moronic. Davise...you are an idiot, and I am walking away.

I must say, you have extremely poor criteria for judging exercise related advise.

Covered up, most natural trainees don't even look like they work out.

Wow...I'm an idiot...thanks a lot. But seriously, I didnt expect him to be AHHHNOLD, but I at least expected the guy to looks like he weight trained a little. And no I know Angelo Dundee couldnt whup Muhammad Ali in his prime, but that he would be a better trainer of other boxers...I understand where you are coming from. Still, I now know why S.M. picture is not on the internet...who would take him seriously if they saw his picture.

I dont know if I could do 400x20 in the deadlift because I dont train in that rep range...however I can do 535 for 5 at about a 2/2 rep cadence and I'm not a genetic marvel either...I do look like I work out however...clothed or not.

I do want to put into perspective that there are many middleweight powerlifters that don't look like they train when they're in normal clothing. Another example of this is Dr. Judd Biasiotto, who at a weight of 132lbs deadlifted 551lbs(!) in competition.

I agree that the picture doesn't look like much, but it's just a headshot, nothing more.

To a point I agree. Take the great powerlifter Bob Peoples. He could deadlift well over 700 pds at a bodyweight under 200lbs and a height of 6'1". However, I dont think he ever did a competition bench press of three hundred lbs. Some people are specialty lifters and because of body leverages and build will never be great three lift lifters (bench, squat, deadlift). People who are uniformly strong on all three lifts tend to be built better than deadlift specialists. Bob Peoples never had great upperbody development, although his spinal erectors were out of this world.

Dr Ken is another good example...great strength but little size. He chalked this up to not eating enough and earlier pictures show him with a chest large enough to balance a glass of water on his chest....he said he ate alot more during this time frame.

I agree. I think leaning on that hard gainer column for support isn't going to get a person anywhere. Once a person has bought into that label, on any level, they are dead in the water ... and on land.

I remember seeing a photo of Bob Peoples finishing a one handed 400 lb deadlift. He was wearing slacks , shirt and tie.

Lovie Smith can't sack the Quarterback
Phil Jackson can't dunk the basketball etc. etc.

Lovie Smith is also one of the worst head coaches in the NFL and a horrible talent evaluator in my opinion. He was a decent position coach, and defensive co-ordinator, but not really anything special at that either.

Phil Jackson was once the starting center/forward for the New York Knicks. He did play for 12 years in the NBA.

I think a person can be good at something, and also be able to teach it.
