"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."

Dr. Darden,

I have a question, after all these years of training yourself and your clients, do you still believe in the Nautilus Principal style of training (i.e. 3x/week full body to failure) of Arthur Jones?
I have read a few of your books (live longer stronger, new high intensity training and new bodybuilding old results) and find these great reads, it seems you always suggest full body 3x/week one set failure.
The reason I ask, is with all the talk on the discussion forum...it appears individuals are moving away from that style of training and/or bashing traditional HIT style training.
So, am I wasting my time using this training method for overall health and fitness at 52 years old.

thanks in advance if you decide to reply.

My training today involves one diet of 8 or fewer exercises, twice a week.I'm now convinced that two times per week is better than three times per week for almost everyone.

Dr. Darden,

what is your opinion of reps of 15-25 in lieu of 8-12 as we age?
or is there no difference?

thx, dan

I believe 8 to 12 is better, with an occasional workout involving higher repetitions.

I only spent about 25 hours with Arthur Jones but those were 25 of the most productive hours of my life. He was a great educator. tough exterior but I sensed he had a soft side for folks. I spent about 10 additional hours on the phone. My first phone call cost me $400 a princely sum in 1972. I was fortunate I was suffering from the effects of TB and dislocating shoulders from football. I had ears to hear. Also thanks for you have done to stay with the work El. I have your number if its the same I will call you soon.
