"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."

I'm right behind you Coomo. I start in June. I've battled rotator cuff problems for almost 7 years but with both repaired I can finally get into an upper body routine that can get me somewhere. Question is? How will these 59 year old knees hold out? I need the duo-squat to rev my heart rate up where I want it. No wraps for this guy. Slow and steady will have to win this race. What next for you? Want some ideas?

the "low-carb thing" really is miraculous!!!

its the only diet that has worked with me--the high protein builds, and repairs, muscle [when doing h.i.t., in particular ]. you are getting an abundance of nutrients--you can, and should, eat as much as you want, and the calories aren't stored as fat--so, basically, you build, muscle, and burn your own fat for energy--it is the way we were designed to eat--period!

the high, carb, restricted, calorie, diets--only cause one to lose strength--because you aren't getting enough "nutrient dense" foods--so you lose fat but also some strength--

the low carb diet gives you an over-abundance of nutrients and your body absorbs all of the protein/nutrients. because protein is not stored as fat, you simply, eat as much, as you want, and the rest is excreted in the toilet--and if you have no processed carbs for an extended period of time [6 months] you literally, will burn all of your unwanted fat--and at the same time you are giving your body the absolutely, best, environment, to thrive/heal/grow--when done with high intensity training--it is nuts--i wish i had found the diet years ago--

i always worked out properly i.e. hit/nautilus 8-12 machines/full-body workout,mmf--1-2 times per week--but, you simply cant exercise off a bad diet--when i was basically, eating all carbs--i was stuck at the same strength levels, on all of my machines for years-i figured i had hit my genetic potential years ago-plus, the fat really started to pile on in my early to mid 40s. i had always maintained a weight in the 180s, never really going into the 190s. then, something happened when i moved in with my girlfriend over the course of 5 years--she cooks, these big, family-style, meals-- i went from the high 180s all the way to 258 lbs!!!!

i looked terrible, i didn't really notice it [piling on] because i had always worked out [worked out intensely] and it was over the course of 5 or 6 years. but, one day, one of my friends sent me a picture and i was shocked at how fat i was. and as fate would have it my cousin had gotten himself into a similar predicament and had great success with the Atkins diet. so i said to myself--self, we got to try this diet--it seemed appealing--i can eat as much as i want, and the weight will come off--and it also made a lot of sense in terms of the high protein, in conjunction with my strength training--i mean, i was aware that basically, bodybuilders ate in a similar fashion for as long as i can remember.

the odd thing was that i had never eaten properly yet, i was completely into the strength training/bodybuilding for almost, my entire, adult, life [30 plus years--i started at 14 years of age and i am still doing the same h.i.t. training--with like, only 1 or 2 years break, all those years]

the crazy thing was that the diet has made the most dramatic effect--in 6 months it is possible to completely transform your body to near perfection--underneath the fat was over 3 decades of muscle that no-one could see--so when i started to see the weight drop it looked like i had gotten tremendously more muscular--i kept at this for 8 solid months--it isn't easy but, it did become a routine-- and it really wasn't that difficult--i mean, you are never hungry-plus, i was after a very long time stuck at the same strength levels--for years --then, all of a sudden i started gaining strength--in my mid to late 40s!!!this was very exciting to me!! i mean, strength training has been my number one passion for over 3 decades.and withing a few months of very high protien intake i was busting through personal bests at the gym. it was amazing the high protein levels were causing my body to heal, and grow, beyond what i ever thought was possible in at such an advanced age [for strength training]!!!

i havent been on the diet over a year but, i have kept the bulk of the weight off--and my strength levels have not decreased-they are not flying up like they were on the super high protein diet --but on a moderate version of the atkins i still make gains--i will keep it in check, if i see the weight creeping up--i use my belt loops as a guide--and if it starts moving up, i will do the no carb thing for 3 weeks and i am at my ideal weight again--and it is relatively easy to maintain once the weight is off----i try to not go over 180lbs--but 172lbs is my ideal weight--but, for the 172 i need to be on the atkins full time----i can do it but, i still enjoy my processed carbs like everyone--i just now, keep a very close eye on what i am doing to my self--and this seems to work very well without having to give up much of anything in this life

In 1970 Arthur Jones revolutionized the fitness industry with incredibly designed resistance training equipment and a unique training method that was incredibly effective and efficient. Arthur was maligned by many in the free weight world because he said his system was superior. It was.

Also in the 1970's Dr. Atkins came along promoting a reduced carbohydrate diet that proved very effective with those who used it. The human body is one big chemistry factory and he figured out the right formula to achieve a more lean and higher functioning body. He was maligned by the mainstream medical community because they had put all of their apples in the dietary fat basket and that's what they sold.

Guess what? It wasn't just the dietary fat you ingested but also the fat your body produced from excess carbohydrate intake. Nowadays the medical community has finally realized that it's all about blood sugar and the glycemic index. The current train of thought is not that of low carbohydrate intake but that of not being excessive. Going back to the old 60-30-10 ratio for carbs, protein and fat intake, whoever said that 60% of our caloric intake should be in carbs, more specifically high glycemic carbs. We were taking in too many carbohydrates since the advent of fast and processed foods post WWII. Much like the traditional exercises who still try to finds holes in Arthur's commons sense science, those clinging to their roots try and find any reason to discredit non-excessive carbohydrate diets. Arthur figured it out and so did Dr. Atkin's. Everyone else is just shouting at the wind.

In fact this week in the UK press.
Headline ran something like.
"Sorry we made a mistake, for 40 years weve been telling you fat is bad.Its not.Its sugar thats bad"

Mr. Strong

You have that look that people have who train with too low frequency and volume.

Want to lose fat and build muscle? Up the frequency and volume. People tend to struggle with fat loss when they underestimate the role proper training can have.

yeah, this stuff is really, very, simple, and quite, painless, when done properly. 20-30 minutes of busting your ass in the gym [20-30 minutes of focused hell, 1 to 2 times per week, and a diet devoid of sugar/processed carbs will get one into the kinda shape that fitness models aspire to--no drugs, no marathon workouts that consume ones life--no injuries--and no hunger--it really is that simple and it works better than any other approach ever devised. people just don't know . they over complicate it, do way, too much, suffer, and get horrible results!

anyone can go very far/perform very intense exercise, in a focused bout of exercise ***if they know it will be over in 20 minutes and they then, can rest all week until the next time!

the diet also, is insanely, easy, and pain-free--yet, it also, happens, to be the most, effective diet for fat-loss, and muscle building. a diet with no hunger, a diet where you eat as much as you want and fat literally melts off and muscle is completely fed.

nothing to think about. simply, eat till you're full just as long as it in the form of protein, or green vegetables,

both the exercise side [h.i.t.] and the diet side [Atkins] are the most effective when done correctly. it is very "livable" and extremely effective yet most [very few] will ever try this approach.

the diet, and exercise, field is a multi billion dollar industry fueled by deception.

the simple truth of "h.i.t." and "atkins" is actually, they are the most effective exercise and diets ever devised, where the best results are attainable. but, few will ever be exposed to this exercise program that requires only 20 minutes of discomfort per week to get results unattainable by any other method.and the diet that turns your body into a fat burning/muscle building machine--with no hunger!!!

every fitness/bodybuilding magazine is designed to get people to fail--ineffective, crazy, workouts, that dont work. so, you try one, and then, buy the magazine again to try another ineffective workout, because the last one didn't work.--and then, to add insult to injury they have the "steroid monster" standing next to some tub of ineffective supplements as to suggest, "buy this and you will get results like this"! the real crime in this is that these magazine/ads/supplements are designed to trick kids out of their money but even worse it puts them on the wrong track sets them up for lack of results and eventually frustration and quitting shortly thereafter

with h.i.t. its easy to stick to it--i stuck with it because i was doing a program that had reason--goals could be set, results can be had and 20 minutes once or twice per week is something i looked forward to not dread--

but with my high school friends and their "weider nonsense", most quit, never to return, and they lost out on 30 plus years of building. the next 30 become even more important!!!!you cant get back those years. if you haven't continually built muscle from the teenage years then after age 30 those building years are over--and all you can do is maintain after 30--however, if you continued since a teenager you can actually add additional muscle into your 40s,50s, and 60s [i read that in some study a while back]. because after 30 you begin to lose muscle if you don't strength train--but if you haven't stopped since high school not only will the body maintain muscle mass after 30 but it will also be able to increase muscle mass. i know i have been able to do this into my late 40s [i am more muscular now than i was in my 20s and 30s!!!

yet, the most logical,simple, result, producing, diet, and exercise program goes virtually ignored???

there is no deception--there is really nothing to sell--8-12 exercises, 1 set,taken to m.m.f., 6-8 reps when you hit 8 increase the weight. 3 times per week to start. keep going then, when progress halts scale back to 2 times per week then, when progress halts again scale back to 1 time per week.move quickly from one exercise to the next--the whole routine will take 20-30 minutes. at the advanced level you are talking about 20 minutes of pure hell per week--but a focused, 20 minutes per week, no matter, how hard, is something most people can do--and will be able to do their entire lives.

the workouts out of the magazines, ones with no rhyme, nor, reason are way, more, difficult, because there is no clear goal [results are not quantifiable-[like with h.i.t., 1 set, hit the #, increase the weight]-these workouts out of the magazines, most likely, will go too long, for not enough intensity, and will go into the overtraining range--the people will get little results, and then, quit, and not return for long periods of time--they may return at some point when they are in even worse shape, repeat another illogical workout, burn out get no results, and quit again.
*****************
my point to all of this is that it is really is a shame--if people would simply commit 110% to the h.i.t. workout, and a low carb diet for a half of a year they would find it extremely easy and they would be shocked at the results-and they would most likely, stick with it for life [like brushing your teeth]-i am talking, "fitness model results" for 20 minutes per week and choosing protein and green veggies rather than starving themselves [losing fat and muscle] eating small portions of high carb/ sugary food stuffs--that slow metabolism--and eventually hunger will win out on such an illogical diet and results will be non-existant or maybe even worse than before the diet was even attempted.

Am going to continue as is for time being.Ive cut back to two meals a day,as Im usually out all day, I cant eat out, so I just leave food between 9am/5pm.Hasnt affected me hunger wise at all.I may nick a tiny chocolate bar occasionally!
Todays breakfast;
3 rashers bacon, 2 eggs, mushrooms, courgettes and an avocado.fried in either coconut/advocado oil.4/5 cups redbush tea.

Keeps me happy all day.
To be totally honest, I used to train weekly.I can just about manage twice.Now that I dont have duo-squat, the fatigue is less as well.Im also addicted to the buzz! I dont need to work much thesedays, so I can take days off when I choose.Id love to train every day!
Id like to get my waist to 28/29 inches.
I have very a very light bone structure around my hips/waist, so I think its achievable.

You have that look Mr. Strong of someone who gets out in the sun too much. That little green hat of yours isn't shading your red body from the sun enough.
I'm sure like Vince Gironda you can tell us all about "proper training".Please put me on the list when you have a book party like Ell is having and you can tell us all we need to know.

How do you do the 10-12 sec reps?

Great shape coomo! You may find you can tolerate more sugar now - the more muscle you build the more sugar it needs to contract optimally.

Frank.It varies slighlty.if Im using a machine(nitro) with an even(for me) strength curve, its pretty much 5/5.
On squats and Cybex leg, its more likely 4/6.As long as im turning around smoothly,and eliminating momentum,im happy.
If you move too fast, you have to slow down to stop using the momentum, so smooth and steady, is best I find.
