"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."

Nope, I never met Sipes. I've read articles about him, however.

The IART has a book entitled Tactical Fitness: Rules of Advanced Gym Warfare. With it comes a free 2-hour DVD, with film footage of Mr. Olympias in the 1960s, as well as footage from the 1980 Mr. O. On that CD is some great 'home movie' footage of Chuck Sipes that may interest you, footage taken by the DVD's narrator while on a visit to Chuck's place.

Apparently Chuck had nothing more than about 300 pounds of weights, a barbell, and a few dumbbells, and that is what he used for his training (in an old shed).

I can remmember reading about him in a weider mag, shortly after he commited suicide, it must have been well over 10 years ago.

He supposedly had 18 inch forearms, which I think he credited getting from sawing trees for a living, you know those huge horizontal two person saws.

Yes, Norm's DVD. He gave us permission to include it with the Tactical Fitness book (which has a foreword by Dave Draper).

I love those letters. They are a hoot and a holler.

The first guy tells Dennis to avoid milk and yogurt "because they can make your skin thick", but his first meal of the day has hard cheese in it.

Someone should print out Dave Draper's old (1965) letter urging Dennis to drop oatmeal, apples, and carrots from his diet and bring it to him. It's certainly ironic considering his recent quadruple bypass surgery...
