"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."

Hello,

I recently purchased "The New High Intensity Training," and I like what I've read.

However, I'd like to supplement this with a book that covers more on advanced HIT techniques.

I found that used copies of Dr. Darden's older book "Super High- Intensity Bodybuilding" are selling at amazon.com, and I'm wondering if this is what I'm looking for...

If anyone knows about this book, could they tell me:

- whether the book covers advanced HIT techniques
- whether the book contains any routines using such techniques, and
- if the information in the book would still be considered accurate, considering the publication date of 1986.

Also, if this book is not what I'm looking for, would anyone know of a book that does touch on such things?

Thank you,
Jason.

Jason,

Yeah, I believe you'll like the book you mentioned, especially if you can get it for less than $10. There is some overlap with The New HIT, but you'll find some adaptable routines for sure.

I have the super high intensity books as well. I would say they are worth reading.

Super High Intensity Bodybuilding was my first Darden book, I remember getting it when it first came out. Good book! That, Massive Muscles in.. etc. and Big are my favorites.

Dr. Darden: Someday you should do another "put muscles on someone with brief HIT workouts" type book again. Those are great reads.

I wonder if Nautilus has approached Dr Darden to do a new Nautilus Book.

2 other must read's by Dr Darden:

1. The Nautilus Bodybuilding book (try to get the last one from the 80's, it has more chapters)

2. The Nautilus Advanced Bodybuilding Book

To me the Nautilus Bodybuilding Book is THE bible on resistance training and HIT period.

And yes the later edition is worth the effort to track down.

I lent my Advanced edition to a friend and she lost it, so if any of you out there are willing to sell one or know where I can get one I would appreciate it.

They are never on ebay, and I don't know if it is available on Amazon, (I might go have a look...)

One should be done with 'hardgainers' or people with ectomorphic bodytypes. ie: requirements would be less than a certain BW at a certain height, wrist size under a certain number etc.
This would be the real test of a strength training programme, not a study with bodybuilders or people with above average genetics. Lets face it,it wouldnt be hard to find skinny guys looking to put on muscle.

I think it would be great for HIT.

Hi

I just bought a copy of the Nautilus Bodybuilding book, first edition with Joe Means on the cover, from Amazon marketplace. But they sent me the later edition with Scott Wilson instead! You might try this approach.

I have also ordered Super High Intensity Training and the Advanced Nautilus Bodybuilding book, for about $4 each, the fools!

Sean,

They are on EBAY a lot. In fact I should be getting another copy this week. I already paid for it. If you search for "The Nautilus Bodybuilding Book" you will get a search result for that book and the Advanced book as well. Also, search for Ellington Darden. You will get about 100 reply's.

Keep looking and you will find one.

I look every day since I don't have "Big arms in 6 weeks." I ordered bigger muscles in 42 days last night.
