"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."

There are some people who actually take joy in living life. I think David is an excellent role model for clear thought, disciplined study, application and teaching of all things HIT. I tell you what..when it is a matter of life and death as to whether you eat something like that as it truly is in my case..

won't even go into how close I was to going to the hospital Monday because of an accidental glutening.. I smile to see Mr. Landau celebrate life a little bit. You need to take a chill pill and not take everything so seriously and personally.

Once you realize there is more to the world than your own opinion you might well be able to use some of that considerable knowledge you have in much better ways. Knowledge used ignorantly is more ignorant than ignorance.

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.


Arthur told me that the reason that Infimetric machines didn't make it as a line was due to the fact that most people like to or need to " see the weights go up and down " .

This is a tough time to launch any new business and I wish them well in their endevour.

so, you haven't lived if you choose healthy choices?

are you claiming a deep fried twinkie is the key to living well. or are you saying a deep fried twinkie or its analogue causes no harm. how about once a week? once a day?? once a year/

my question is why eat it, what does it signify that i can eat anything because i am ironman?

Your shallow thought pool is frighteningly annoying. There is more to much that meets the eye. It is obvious that you, on one hand take everything beyond literality and then go force feeding your ill formed conclusions of pretend mind reading others' thoughts to ridiculous levels.

Quite obvious that you are incapable at an intellectual level of understanding higher argument. You show your foolishness at levels I have never encountered in one otherwise seemingly educated.

On to more important things though. There is a lack of proprioceptive feedback with infimetric equipment that does make it quite difficult to motivate even with digital feedback.

Without a link to the visual it is hard to maintain high levels of intensity for many workouts and quite easy to think you are working harder than you actually are. I was trying to get some infimetric prototypes in to NASA years ago because of the ideal non gravitational nature of the resistance.

Still working on that but with a different slant. Digital feedback, bar graphs, pacing lights, it just isn't as effective as a weight or weight stack for motivation even though I was quite willing to be disciplined in my use of it. As to spongy feel of air based resistance I would say that is a particular fault with a brand's proprietary hardware used to control the resistance more than the nature of pneumatics.

I am currently using two pneumatic based prototypes for negative uploaded workouts and it can be efficiently brutal in the best sense of the word. My mechanical methodologies differ from most commercial equipment though.

Getting back to the new equipment, I would love to be able to give it a try some time but notice there are not as many single joint movements as I would have expected. Are there more machines in the works?

Dr. Darden, your recent support of x-force machinery has raised a great deal of uncertainty within my circle of colleagues. We would like to know if were you financially compensated for your write up concerning x-force,and do you have a financial interest in x-force?

Looking at the photo of Jim Flanigan got me thinking about a TV western called Cheyenne. The lead was played by Clint Walker. I then googled Walker and looked at some of his publicity photos. Talk about a well proportioned giant ! He Played a guy named Posey in the Dirty Dozen , if you weren't around in the early 60s.

He also did a TV movie called The Scream of The Wolf , he played the heavy. In one shot he was arm wrestling Peter Graves ( who was pretty big also ) and his hand literally enveloped Graves hand. I think he is in his 80s now.

Hey Bill,
Funny you brought up Clint Walker. Clint and Big Jim are great friends. They are both about the ame size and cut from the same mold. Both great Americans who are true gentlemen. Clint was even the best man at Jims wedding. You are very astute! Jeff

I was paid to write the article concerning X-Force, but I do not have a financial part in the company. I sincerely believe in what Mats Thulin is trying to do and I am impressed with the X-Force equipment.

From what I heard, a lumbar machine -- and several others, including a neck -- were considered initially, but did not make the first grouping. They will probably be on the line-up when the next group of machines are introduced.

Perhaps it's not necessarily seeing the weights go up and down, but just having visual feedback in general, which can be provided in many ways. I don't get to watch a weight go up and down during my workouts now, but I have a number in front of me (production model will be different) and keeping that number high is what motivates me.

You need to try a deep fried oreo.
You know you could be a spokeman for deepfried twinkies. 2 tickets to the gun show.

Good point, I am sure that you know about the " heads up " visual feedback MedX medical machines
utilize. I certainly put out a greater effort when I can see the force I am generating.

Believe it or not, I met with David for lunch, 15 minutes after his annual fried twinkie. It made him full, so he didn't eat lunch.

If this example grosses you out, what are your thoughts on my first meal of the day, which consists of six large eggs, six bacon strips, and the grease from the bacon consumed in 12 ounces of beef broth as my fluid? YUM!

And BTW, I never hold myself out as an example or an expert to anyone. I just share what I do, and it works for me.

Well, my guess is unless you buy into Obamamania, the rest of us only lend our support for causes we believe in, which compensate us.

Why is this a problem? Forgive me for bringing it up, but do you have some sort of exclusive right on Dr. Darden's right to make a living with a better mousetrap?

Help me out here. I'm clueless!

PS - Let's all get over the notion of being referred to as "experts." It comes with more baggage than is worth it. We are all just people sharing ideas for the common good.

Very well said Greg, bravo! Dr.Darden is not going to endorse anything that he does not believe in. If Dr.Darden felt that X-force was not a big improvement in exercise, you can bet he would say so. If anyone has the expertise to look at a new concept in exercise and evaluate it it is Dr.Darden. He should be compensated for his time though. Why would this concern anyone? Jeff

Well put. There's nothing wrong with being paid to endorse something if you also believe in it. This isn't the same as drugged up bodybuilders posing in ads for and crediting their physique to bogus nutritional supplements they've never even used.

From April 21st through April 26th, I'll be in Essen, Germany, attending the FIBO Convention and Trade Show, with X-Force. FIBO is Europe's largest fitness and health organization and more than 50,000 people are scheduled to attend.

When I return, I'll have a full report with photos.
