"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."

Man, that's the best one arm chin video I've ever seen. This guy is fricken amazing!!! I'd be happy do half of what he's doing with both arms.

Very, very impressive.

Note the great forearm (esp. brachioradialis) and brachialis development BECAUSE of using an overhand/pronated grip.

Also note the substantial biceps development despite NOT using a supinated grip.

Agreed, very impressive. Much of the time I can get a rough handle on the physics behind something like this, but with this I'm dumbfounded where the strength comes from?

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Oh you surprised me Southbeach, I was sure you'd complain about his form or body fat or something? I think his strength comes from a veggie diet,or come to think of it I saw a canned elixir at Wallmart titled "next day one arm chins" by the maker of next day blinds, ha ha...

(Short human)+(Short arms)+(lots of muscle in upper body)+(most of body mass in upper body)= one armed chins!

That's the way I see it.

This makes a lot of sense! Gymnasts are skilled at manipulating their body and are always short with skinny legs. LOL.

You nailed it!

Oversimplified; stregth to bodyweight ratio is what counts. It's possible for a heavy athlete with muscular legs, they just have to be strong enough to maintain that ratio.

The athlete in the video is tremendously strong; he could easily put another 25 lbs of muscle on his lower body and still would be strong enough to perform a couple of 1 arm chins.

It was an oversimplified example for sure, and I agree about the strength to weight ratio being very high. I think we all strive to be "strong for our size"...I know I do!

You guys left off, very low bodyfat. That cat has a waistline <30 inches from the looks of it.

Losing weight is what helped my pullup ability the most. I'm not in that guy's league though.

Unfortunately, I can definitely vouche for the flipside of that coin!

This is a Genetic Freak that likely from playing in the park as a kid, it was found that he had "exceptional ability" compared to the rest. Through adolescent physical education programs and beyond, where more "discoveries" can be made - you have a natural born "athlete." Training Systems aside - you can't "train" a superior leverage system - you just put it to work where it shines supreme. Born, not made. Just like a genius who studies the night before a final exam and Aces it going away - Some can, some can't..............

What I want to know is why is it that at the end of the first rep (at the bottom) that he doesn't start spinning around his horizontal axis.

Acerimmer1

Oh now I see it looks like he's using his legs and his left arm to balance. At one point around 8 seconds just at the start he nearly looses it.

See this is the problem you can have even if you have the strength. As demonstrated by the world record holder in the weighted chinup.

Hmm that video was 2006 so maybe he wasn't that strong then. But you still get the point by looking at his attempt right at the end. It's clearly a feat of both strength and balance.
