"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."

BLOG BUMP ... to showcase one of Dr Darden's best published success stories. Incredible results of an "overweight" trainee who slimmed down by greatly reducing fat and still increasing muscle ... and bulked out with MUSCLE GAINS quite impressively.
One would never know he was "slim".
With the following exercise
attributes we ALL can approach our genetic capacity ... with no limit, but an upper bound to approach (likely hyperbolic).
HOWEVER, most of the general population (99.99999%) and most trainers, trainees, and even advanced trainees (98%) never achieve adequate focused intensity to make rest/recover/volume relevant.
FOCUSED INTENSITY, aka relatively heavy weights with no outroading
ADEQUATE REST and RECOVERY
REDUCED SESSION VOLUME
REDUCED MOMENTUM and MOTION
ELIMINATION of SYSTEMIC FATIGUE and OVERLOAD
ATTAIN and MAINTAIN a HEALTHY DIET
Dr. Darden ... this is an incredible summary of Keelan's journey, and we appreciate your efforts ... BUT more examples like this will help to serve these bloggers and Mankind!
"Well, that's pathetic."
Ha! That's what I heard from Dr. Darden during our workout yesterday after my crappy set of pullovers. I think that's the first time I've gotten that particular comment from him. LOL
Oh well, in my defense, I've been nursing a very sore back for about two weeks (previous lower back injury from bad form bent over rows).
I'll hopefully be a little less "pathetic" next week during our workout! At least I redeemd myself on the dips and pullups.
We also took some pix yesterday (I can only figure out how to upload one image per post on this board), to keep an eye on my progress. Yeah, I cropped what's left of my gut out of this one. What about it? Wish it was that easy in real life!
I tell ya, posing for these things is tough. Keeping everything flexed, your gut sucked in, and for me, trying not to squint (blue eyes squint really badly, I've found), is a lot to remember! Posing itself is a workout!
