"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 Ellington,

I read the following on your T-Nation thread, which intrigued me...

You are so right.

Ellington

Could you please elaborate? Thanks.


It probably goes back to something Jones pointed out in the early 1970s. A single-joint rotary movement with dumbbells and barbells requires you to stabilize one joint, which is very difficult to do. And even if you can stabilize it, a dumbbell and barbell provide straight-line resistance against your hand or body part that is trying to move in a rotary manner.

So what Jones was getting at was that you really need a machine to do a single-joint rotary movement correctly.

RobT, as long you black out the first 12 digits of the number and the 3 digit security code you will be O.K.

However I still haven't the receipt of the details confirmed.

Hi Dr. Darden,
I've really enjoyed the book so far.
I spoke w/ Roger Schwab on Monday, and faxed him a copy of your interview w/ him.
I kidded him about his ability to perform chinups, and told him of how impressed you were.
Roger DOESN'T consider that his best effort.
He considers the performance of 6 chinups(good form) w/ 100 lbs. attached to his waist, at age 50, to be a better feat!
The man still trains w/ amazing intensity and has a bodyfat level below 10%, at age 61!

Dear Dr Darden

I have your last book the New HIT, and have found it to be an excellent piece of work.

Last week I attempted to purchase your new book. A day after I had placed my order, I received an E-mail asking for more card details and further ID, to which I was not willing to provide.

Within the UK we are discouraged from handing out this type of info.

I am still very keen to purchase you new book, if possible is their another way in which I can obtain it.

Many Thanks
WS

Hey WS

I'm in the UK also and had exactly the same problem - checked with my credit card company and they recomended not doing this and Biotest did not seem to have any other options. Never had this before with other items i've purchased from the US either. Shame as i have almost all of Dr Dardens other books and TNBFOSR sounds excellent.

Rob T




Thanks for your reply.

Hopefuly their will be another way of purchasing the book soon.

Thanks Ellington. So for biceps, for example, chins still remain superior over any type of curl movement?

hdlifter,

Chins are a good exercise for the biceps, but so are standing barbell
curls . . . especially if you can keep your elbows stable.

I just posted the question if there was a mailing list we could join to notify us as soon as the bugs in the purchase system have been worked through, so all us in the UK can get our hands on it too.

I got a private message, almost immediately in fact, to say the question has been passed on to Biotest customer service.

Being intercepted and passing it onto the relevant person for address rather than posting it to potentially never get seen shows good customer service on the part of the message board staff, so I'm confident the Biotest staff will reply soon.

When they do, I'll post the answer here for us Brits.

I am from the UK as well, I:-

Scanned in my cc and drivers license then blanked out all other details than requested, on my drivers license i just left the name and the GB bit on the back.

Then i printed it out and scanned in the printout, that way there can be no way of undoing the 'changes'. I then e-mailed it across (basically a scan of a print), there is no information that could be used if you blank out the rest of the info. Biotest were happy with this and so was i and now have the book if this helps anyone.

Good Day Dr. Darden,
id like to start by asking you about Mike Mentzer and heavy duty/ Hit eg...
ive trained hit for the past 7 yrs or more,before hand volume training for 25 hours a week in the weight room of my gym & fitness centre,
Did Mike do heavy duty in his prime? as in 78-80 as i think that was when he was the only man to win a comp with a 300 score.

Or was he volume training in the weider camp then,as ive see lots of pics with Joe weider behind or beside him.
what im realy tryingto find out is: Did mike wont his trainees to do as he says,Not as he did?

The other thing i wish to ask you may be a low blow but,Didnt Art Jone think Casey and most other body builders as thick and moral-less?
I remember reading ,that after Casey was outa Jones camp,he would turn to volume training and fall short when it came to gains,
then Jones would get him back on track again to get results with HIT.

and after all of that Jones heared Casey say to a reporter that he could never over train because of his great genetics.

Then the morals: isnt there so meany ex-pro body builders calling there book eg... High Intensity Training?
Did nt Mike have a name for them?(Second Handers)(Theaves of ideas)

I see guys very day say (i do HIT) and all they do is some low volume cave man drop out of a work out,The few i take on and show HIT,Know what HIT is at the end of the workout! and only about 10% go back to volume after three HIT workouts.Because of the great results(progress)After all the bull ive read and heared:

I find it very hard to swallow any thing anyone in the world of body building says these days.

Can you in lightin me in any of these matters please? thankyou for your time

Nathan,

Jones always had a love/hate relationship with bodybuilding. He liked bodybuilding but disliked most bodybuilders. Readers can certainly detect that in my last two books: The New HIT and The New Bodybuilding.

I only saw Mentzer train a few times: really hard in LA in 1978, and in 1983 at the Nautilus TV studio. He was not into his training in 1983.

I've described Casey's training in my last two books . . . as well as in articles on this Web site.

It's a shame that motor learning is so under-appreciated today. There's a goldmine of information in Chapter 10, How Motor Learning Helps Strength Training.

Thanks for your support.

From page 104:

"Motor learning deals with movement skill acquisition and the reinfocement and transfer of those actions. One of the primary purposes of motor learning is . . . teaching people how to learn -- EFFICIENTLY."

Dr. Darden

I certainly do not underappreciate Chapter 10 in your new book. The chapter has changed my views on motor learning. Never before have I read such a simple and direct explanation of motor learning.

I have read several books dealing with/around this topic, and your explanation is simply the best. I am going out on a limb, but I do believe this chapter is the equal of anything in the Nautilus Bulletins. You are to be commended.

In particular, the illustration about the Superstar show on ABC television was excellent, simple and easy enough for a lay person to understand, the best kind of illustration. I think this chapter will be a classic.

I just received my copy of the new book. It is fantastic! I can honestly say that I was a volume fan. I never thought that one and done would do it for me. Come to find out, I simply wasn't working nearly hard enough. I just finished a whole body routine that left me barely able to walk out of my weight room. Thanks for opening my eyes.

thanks for that,but what was Mentzer doing?in 78, heavy duty or volume? plz
and on a nother matter,id read from mentzers books and soforth that he helped Yates in his first few years ,and showed his what high intensity training was all about,
then ive seen blood and guts,read a warriors story,but i concluded from these he didnt understand any of what mike has showen him,And i know mike must of known he didnt learn much becase of the way he spock of Yates before mike died,think that makes me wonder about some of these guys,is like,why the hell did he tear his bicep if he was doing controled movements to start with?and why did he not finsh the muscle group with a conpound movement?
o well you can only lead the horse to water,but ya cant make it drink! thanks again!

I've described Casey's training in my last two books . . . as well as in articles on this Web site.
