"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."

Twice a week should work for you, at least for a while. Then, you should cut it to 1 time per week.

Dr. Darden,

You have an ultimate 2-week routine for
calves
lats
arms
shoulders

Could you make an ultimate 2 week routine for legs and chest?

Have been on this routine for over a year now, and everything is great...did the creatine loading phase, and have been using 5gms a day of pure creatine...does this ever stop? or do i just keep going 5gms a day until my body can no longer physically do hit...also i want to improve my pullups for physical agility testing purposes...do you suggest explosive pullups for numerical increase, or the same slow and steady workout, and strength will come faster for when i need it???

I would cycle creatine. Perhaps a month on and a month off.

If you are tested on doing chinups fast, I would train on then in strict form (with some negatives) and perform them occasionally fast.

One month on and one month off is great, saves in the pocket too. However, after one month off of creatine, do you have to go back to the 2 week loading phase each month, or just jump back to the 5 gms a day?

Stay with 5 gms per day.

Just joined the forum!

I've been reading the early responses in this thread about the various HIT factions and all the AJ stories - really great stuff!

One post stood out - I'm sorry but I forgot the posters username and what page it was on - He noted that he was the only one working in a HIT fashion at his gym. My wife and I just joined a local gym that has Nautilus (as well as Hammer and other) machines. We have worked out sporadically at home throughout our marriage(using PowerBlock dumbells and recently a Bowflex) alwasy following HIT principles - one set to failure. So far I have seen no one - NO ONE - work a set to failure at any time. The on-site trainers sure don't push folks to do it. My wife and I have been stared at like were insane while doing sets to failure - not that me shaking, red faced and spitting out my last breaths is an attractive sight - but the looks are like 'WTF is this guy doing?'. I have no idea if I'm really training with maximum intensity - I just stop the set when I can't move the weight anymore. But no one we have seen in this new place even comes close to that point on any machine or free-weight exercise. I would have thought that the Nautilus principles would be taught at a place that has the machines (my first exposure to HIT was at a Nautilus facility on a Navy base, where we were taught the principles as well as how to operate the machines - hell they were hanging on the wall like boarding house rules).

Well I've said my peice - I'll go back to reading now!

Thanks

Ellington,

What is your take on regular deadlifts?
I notice you only seem to prescribe stiff leg deadlifts in your new book. Do you think regular deadlifts are worthwile at all? Thanks, Co.

Yes, regular deadlifts are a good exercise, but the stiff-legged version is better. Why? Because you have a greater range of movement.

Dr Darden,

Thanks for the tip on deadlifts, I will most certainly start doing the stiff leg variety more often. Also, I am having trouble with my mid section, Im about to turn 30 and my gut just keeps on getting bigger! What one of your books has the most info on nutrition? Im ok with how to eat for muscle growth, just not sure of how to keep growung and keep the gut at bay at the same time.

Thanks heaps,

Cohen.

Got it for Christmas. Half way through, excellent so far. It has already made me start adjusting repetition range on an individual muscle group basis. I do well with 8-12 for some muscle groups but others, particularly biceps haven't done well. My strength in them hasn't moved much in the last year. I don't feel I should be stuck at 75lbs in the barbell curl. I've bumped it to 95lbs and hit 5 excruciating reps. Hope I hit 6 next time.
