"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."

Shame we can't see the separation between the medialis, rectus femoris and the lateralis. Must be the lighting lol!!!

Seriously; good work!

Thank you for the kind comments guys.

I eventually hit the 700lb+ x 10 on the belt squat this week. Training is going really well presently , and I intend to go with it and see how far I can take this.

Split squats as assistance work on lower body day at 15 reps per leg x 3 sets.

These really are brutal hitting everything from the vastus medialis to the glutes and hamstrings.


Turpin,

Have you ever gone through a training cycle where you DIDN'T use these split squats as assistance work? Just curious.

If so, what did you use in their place?

As someone who now trains at home with minimal equipment, I've found them to be incredible.

I've recently switched to holding one heavy dumbbell rather than a light one in each hand. My free hand, on the same side as the leg being worked is now free to hold the back of an old chair for balance, as you demonstrate holding your power rack in your video (thanks for the inspiration/guidance!)

This is such a simple change, but the effect is huge. With balance taken out of the equation, the focus on rhythm, effort, muscular contraction and pump is SO much better, words cannot describe. It's like night and day.

As HeavyHitter32 said, it's great because they save your lower back. To me, the feel like a one legged leg press but with more glute involvement. Which is a good thing.

Thank you for the kind words Spud. Yes , I went through a period where I dropped the split squats for around 6 months and concentrated my efforts on the roman chair / sissy squat. However on re-introducing the split squat I got to realise the true effect on the lowerbody musculature this exercise brings. Quads , hams and glutes were all activated ( & sore ).
I now make it a staple in my training.

I wonder what that translates to on a force gauge pulling straight down from the belt? Would be interesting. And then compare that to your bb back squat and front.

You should be able to estimate this based on the leverage ratio, which is the distance from pivot point to the weight horns divided by the distance from the pivot point to the belt attachment. So if the weight sits half way between the pivot and the belt attachment, the effective load is 50% of the weight stack.

350lbs then?!!! I'll check John McCallum's figures as I believe he was an ardent proponent of the hip belt squat. See what the old timers were doing.

BTW, I think Turpin's set-up is ideal for this exercise. The best ideas are always the simplest one's.

Cheers!

The irony of the magazine cover! (I know it's been displayed here before... not sure who the blonde guy is though lol!!!).

Can't find figures though of lifters. I'm thinking Marvin Eder for some reason or possibly Hepburn and Anderson.

Turpin,

I think your thread is important due to the fact that it breaks the nonsense HIT dogma into little pieces. I know you are an avid believer in Gironda and his methods, however, not exclusively. You have taken what works for you and threw away what doesn't. That is what weight training should be about and not following a personality or protocol regardless of the results.

I remember the daily bashing you took when this thread first began and those that insisted you were making a mistake and destined to fail. Personally, I knew you would have success and I am glad you stuck to it and proved them wrong. Funny how people will ignore reality for a belief.

I just wanted to say you are bright spot here and your explanations and videos are proof you were correct. I often compare your success to the mouths of insanity here and anyone with half a brain can understand one cannot reach your type of success on 8 minutes once or twice a week and definitely not on a once every 10-14 day training schedule.
