"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."

Hi Rob.
Thank you for the kind words.
I have over the years train in HIT style more than anything else.
If I have a client that wants to gain muscle tissue, i can not think of a better way. The results I have had and clients- would blow your mind.

I have to agree with Ell as to progress the most--you need to be pushed. I am lucky in that I have two partners that are huge and knock the shit out of me. After a while though I start to hate training as it is so hard--but that said the gains are worth laying on the floor for five minutes and being sick now and then.
Every few months I pull back a little take stock recover then make another sprint forward.
It would be great to see you Rob let me know when you are around my end of the country.
Train hard eat clean-- Ian.

Hey Mark

Mostly train at home where i have a pretty good set up - but sometimes at Urban Martial Arts in the town centre where i coach some boxing/mma a couple of times a week.

Just pm'd James T and going to drop into his place for a workout - where are you training? (pm if you prefer)

Be good to hook up for a session if we can.

Dr. Darden,

I am new member to your site. Question - I may have missed it but I did not see any of the magazines cover the recent death of Arthur Jones. I thought at least Iron Man or Musclemag would devote some of their recent magazines to one of the most influential people of our time with regards to training. To say I was stunned would not describe it. I mean there was no coverage at all. Not even a mention of his passing. Again, I may have missed it but I was disturbed that some homage was not paid to Arthur.

Sincerely,

Jim Theunick

P.S. - Loved The New Bodybuilding for old school results. I hope that you in writing mode for your next one!

Jim,

The muscle magazines all have an 8-12 week time lag before current events make it into them. Most will have special sections related to Arthur. Ironman will have the most comprehensive.

Yes! And so can not drinking enough water, not training hard enough, and not sleeping enough.

Read my "Superhydration" article, which is listed first under the second section on the opening Web page.

Wow, you're right I definitely am partially dehydrated, I'll follow your super-hydration guide and start eating about 3,500 calories and let you know my process. Thank's for the help.

by the way, any more books in the future?

Hey, Ellington! This is Rebecca James- Meyer (from Celebration Health). What an incredible new website you have!! I was thinking about you and decided to do a search on your name... low and behold.. your new site popped up. How are you? I was so sorry to hear about Arthur's death. My sincerest condolences on the loss of your longtime friend and colleague.

I am still living in Bradenton. My son is now getting ready to turn 7 years old and I now have my own studio and have started my own company. Here is my website: www.fitplanetinc.com

I hope this finds you well. I think of you often and hope your life is great!

I can't wait to catch up and say hello!

A big hug and all the best to you-

Casey would probably say, "Sure," but only if he could put me through the same workout.

Dr. Darden,
In training HIT for roughly 3 years I have experienced exactly what you talk about in your article, basically, mental fatigue from self-reliance. What if trainers I come across arent disciples of the HIT system? It is a dream of mine to work with the experts in the field, to develop my phsyique and as a prospective PhD to shape the future as well. But its not easy getting these opportunities. What do you recommend in terms of entrenching yourself amongst the leaders in the field?

I suggest you read Arthur Jones' autobio for his opinion on the "experts" in the exercise and medical fields. Dealing with people in those fields the past 15 years, I can attest that at least half, if not most of his opinions are true to life. 'The truth makes paupers of kings, and the enlightened, outcasts.'

The December 2007 issue of Ironman cover Arthur?s passing. John Balik devotes his Publishers letter to it and there is a feature article entitled ?in Strong Praises of Arthur Jones by Roger Schwab.

You have to remember that magazines do no operate in ?real time? as the internet does. Consequently there is always a delay.

To Ellington and the Forum,

My last workout, two days ago, working out by myself, I performed 5 large muscle group exercises to 70-80% failure of max rep weight, squats to the same failure level, negative only dips, and then finished up with another set of squats at a somewhat lesser weight (the leg press machine I had planned to use was occupied) in 17 minutes (8 exercises to failure in 17 minutes).

I was in a commercial gym. I was pressed somewhat, but I knew I would have been considerably more exhausted with a good personal trainer. I particularly felt the need for a trainer doing the negative only dips.....more coercion would have helped.

My point being, there are two simultaneous realities here. 1. Yes, I can push myself hard on my own and 2. personal trainers are a really big asset to your training.

Just sharing my thoughts here.

Regards

Dr Darden,
I am actually getting ready to recieve my certification as a Fitness Trainer through the ISSA, who are not pro-HIT (HA! As if you didn't already know that), and I am wondering two things:

first off as a personal trainer who can't train himself, do I need a personal trainer; and secondly, can you recommend any certification organization that IS HIT friendly?

Thanks for all you do, and I am very sorry for your loss, I can't imagine how much Arthur Jones meant to you.

Nightbird,

HIT friendly certifications:

Brian Johnston @ I-A-R-T.com offers one and Ken Hutchins @ SuperSlowZone.com supplies another.

Dr. Darden, I am a huge fan....so sorry about AJ's death.

I am a fitness coordinator at a senior center looking for a good versatile AB machine...any thoughts? Some seniors are encouraging us to buy an "AB LOUNGER" any thoughts? Budget is an issue since we rely on fundraising and donations..

I love your work, and had great success on your Nautilus Diet years ago!
Thanks for all you do!

CR,

You can put "Ab Lounger" or "Ab Lounger" in google and get various reviews and opinions of it. I was not impressed by what I read.

I'd say stick to the basic ab exercises, such as the trunk curl, reverse trunk curl, and side bend.
