"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.

Turley,
I understand how you might feel this way but there are a number of reasons why they will be able to have a market for X-Force. Price may seem a big issue but as you probably know Medx was more than 2x as expensive as say Icarian but they were able to create the reason to have them.

Better results, an actual training protocol to achieve results and an unbelievably well designed piece of equipment.
TEN YEARS AGO I purchased a SuperSlow spinal flexion and extension for almost $18,000.00 for the pair. They still look brand new and every time I have person that is looking at becoming a client, I put them on these machines. 8 out of 10 times they sign up.

You know why? They have never felt anything like them, they are complicated so seem bigger than life and no one else within a 100 miles has one. Making us unique in our market.

By the way the footprintfor X-Force is not much bigger than a Medx piece. I hope that X-Force comes on strong so that they can get price down but even if they don't there will be a market for them. Just need to create the reason for having them in a club.

Programs and a training manual(Dr. Dardens research) that spells out how to get better results in less time!
Remember Porsche, Rolls and many other expensive and exotic cars sell out every year. They are in much demand and a heck of a lot more money than a KIA.

Just as an example- I sold Nautilus in Oregon and I just happened to stop by a club in a small town in Oregon on my way to Portland. I talked with the owner and it just so happened he was looking at purchasing a new line of exercise equipment.

He was looking at buying Universal for around $25,000.00 but by the time I left I had a commitment from him and his financials to buy Nautilus for over $45,000.00.

The reason he bought frm us, more return on investment using Nautilus then using Universal. In fact in three months he was bringing in almost $23,000.00 more a month to his bottom line. People will pay more for a product that helps them be unique in their market thus helping them make more money. Jeff

This is one of the few times that I agree with Bio. I have used the Keiser equipment and Life Fitness electronic machines that produced a heavier eccentric movement and missed the feel, the"proprioceptive feedback" as Bio described.

Past patients who went to the same gym that had these machines found the same thing. It seemed the longer one has used or was familiar with the feel of weight resistance, the less likely the equipment would be used.

The health club would use the Keiser on new clients because they claimed they didn't get as much post soreness that would put them off continuing their membership.

When the club was busy, the Keiser and Life Fitness seemed rarely used.

I am still interested though to see the results that Mr. Baye produces using the motorized equipment.

Overfiftylifter-oh my, agreeing with Bio.

Be prepared, over time it will begin to occur more often.

I have started to sharpen my tanto to be used for Seppuku in case I find further areas to agree with Bio.

Overfiftylifter-my wife says find another way. She is concerned about the life insurance. She is a love.

i disagree that the physiology prefers 'mass based' loads. The physiology doesn't know or 'care' what the source load is.

the problem i've seen with pneumatic and hydraulic resistance is that it is 'spongy' for want of a better word. too much play in it. that's where the 'feel' comes in.

motorized isokinetic resistance, on the other hand, is very intense way to train for the motivated trainee that's willing to maintain full effort thru each rep.

Upper arms are up almost 1/4" since starting, despite less than optimal calorie intake (too low) and sleep (too little). Upper arms are my worst body part, so for me this is exciting.

I've taken before measurements (circumference and skinfold) and tested 1RM on shrug bar deadlift and press and max reps on chins and dips on one of the case studies, and will be doing the same for others.

Strongman Brian Shaw

Across from the X-Force booths, an interesting contest took place. Replicas of the Thomas Inch dumbbells, each weighing 172 pounds, with 2-5/8 inch diameter handles, were on the floor. On the sign above was a note that read: "Deadlift both dumbbells to an upright, standing position and win $350."

In more than three days of many guys trying, I never saw anyone do this feat.

Except 6'8", 370-pound strongman Brian Shaw.

Brian, who was a part of the challenge, demonstrated some 40 times per day that this feat was possible. Brian told me that he could clean both dumbbells and was very close to being able to press them overhead. He said only 420-pound, Mark Henry, had accomplished this superhuman task.

On the last day of the show, I asked Brian to come by the X-Force booths and try the Deltoid Press. The weight stack on the X-Force Deltoid Press was 360 pounds, and it was a heavy 360 pounds. In fact, 200 pounds on it felt like 300 -- and I never saw anyone do even 200 pounds in good form.

Well, Brian came by late on the last day. We situated him correctly in the seat and loaded the machine to 360 pounds. Brian focused for several seconds, grasped the handles, and performed 5 perfect repetitions.

Great job, Brian. You are one strong man.

Happy B'Day, Mr. Landau.

Thankyou Dr. Darden and Landau for the pictures. Seeing so many greats at one place is an awesome feeling.

Living in India, my only exposure to these legends has been through your books, Dr. Darden. To see these giants and how they look in person now is an awesome feeling. It also reinforces the simple fact that they practice what they preach. One look at Dr. Darden, Roger Schwab, Jim Flanagan or Landau clearly illustrates how beneficial proper High Intensity Training can be in the long run. AWESOME!!!!

Thanks a million for the pics.
