"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.

Fiber also helps maintain the proper function of leptin, the body's chief appetite-quieting hormone.
Dr. Ann Kulze state this in an article that fiber helps also slow glucose absorption, which controls highs and lows of glucose metabolism, which helps keep one in Dr. Darden's metabolic equilibrium. There is no need to "crash & burn."
I cannot tell you how many times I tell people looking to control their weight and energy to consume fiber. It has also been shown to lower bad cholesterol and lower colon cancer risk. I take in around 40-45 grams throughout the day on average through whole grain, fruits, vegetables, and some (*sugar free*) psyllium husk powder. I know of a lot of people who are probably not even getting 10 grams per day consuming empty calories and bleached flower products.
There is soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Inulin and oligofructose, two essential prebiotics cause good bacteria to flourish.
Insoluble fiber doesn't dissolve in water, as it absorbs it and acts as a bulking agent for stool. Soluble fiber, on the other hand, does dissolve in water. The water soluble fiber acts as a fertilizer for the good bacteria in the gut. In particular, prebiotic soluble fiber is especially important for good bacteria growth, regularity and bulk.
Beta-glucan and inulin fiber can help with cravings and cause weight loss.
The rate limiting step in the release of chemical energy at the cellular level has been conclusively shown to be the contractile event that uses the energy and not the metabolic pathways that resupply it.
Measurements made possible within living skeletal muscle by nuclear magnetic resonance spin technology indicate that the phosphocreatine reaction is capable of resynthesizing ATP several times more rapidly than the contractile proteins within the muscle cells can use it.
The contractile event is everything. Make the most of it.
