"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."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

I do full-body routines at the gym and a few auxiliary exercises (neck, forearms, anterior tibs) separately at home where I have my own special setups.

Two whole-body routines which I normally alternate:

Workout A:

1. Deadlift

2. Negative chins

3. Negative dips

Workout B:

1. Pulldown

2. Leg Press

3. Incline Chest Press

One set to failure -- except for deadlifts which are performed for a specific number of reps but never to failure.

Do you throw a couple "accidental" workouts into the variety pool? :-)


Yes I drown my muscles in intensity...

So, the results are overwhelming whole-body routines ... at least among those who voted.

Does anyone draw any conclusion from that?

Do you believe whole-body routines are more efficient and/or more effective than split workouts?

That would depend on each individuals results Tony. For ME a split routine is the only way I can do each area of musculature justice by way of required volume & frequency.

Tony,

I think the main factors many would list are:
1. Efficiency
2. Hormonal Effects
3. Conditioning Aspects
4. Lack of Carryover/Crossover*

(*) This is inevitable in what many people call "split" routines, or the pro BB "I only train 1-2 muscles/day" schtick.
