"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."

Recommending Dr. Darden's Book

Bad Boy

It seems to me that after 35 plus years of lifting I would know how to do a barbell curl, but I didn't until I read how AJ had you perform it .I did have to drop 10 off just to finish the set. And it smoked these old Bi's.
I really can't wait till this evening so I can read some more of it.

I'll be 52 this January and I hate to be out there trying things that I'm unsure of. Just to find out I'm wasting my time. I have always been sure I can trust you to make my exercise (bb'ing) experience productive.
I will recommend your book to everyone
I know who works out.

I'm up here in High Spring (outside of Gainesville) and I remember when you were doing some research on the Deputies or was it GPD at the old GHFC on Newberry rd..
I use to work for the Phone Company in Gainesville and Ocala and I believe I meet AJ at his Horse Ranch on the west side of town. If I had only known I would have talked his ear off. Only after seeing his pictures later did I realize who he was.

He would probably shoot me if I showed up there now.

Thanks Again

From the perspective of others...

Dr. Darden has been condemned in some regards... that his books are nothing more than repeats... one reflecting information from another, and that his books are all the same. Amen.

Yes, certain aspects has been replicated, but that is the consequence of maintaining a certain philosophy, but also to reiterate particular principles. Then one must consider the market in which one is to attract and the requirements of publishers.

Nonetheless, each book contains unique and useful information, with particular "twists" that remain unique and differentiated. (Moreover, how much can be said about useful and practical exercise, without some degree of repetition).

The point is, Dr. Darden has written MANY books, with some aspects that do repeat, for obvious reasons of theoretical congruency. And for THAT reason I recommend all his books to be part of anyone's collection. Rational, direct, and consistent! Wow, what a concept.

If you cannot find Dr. Darden's books at your local book store, or through ebay, try www.bookfinder.com. There you will find many out-of-print resources that truly are treasures.

The administrator must have edited my original post because in the beginning of the post I said I had all his books except the ones about Nautilus.

As time goes by new people want new and revised books with up to date info.
However, Some things have to be repeated.

When you watch an ation movie like rocky for example you know it will repeat the same. Rocky losses, rocky trains, rocky wins. Each is the same but diffrent in how it is told. Would rather watch rocky 1 five times? No one would have gont to the movies on the second release never mind the fith. But they did go see five diffrent movies. This is how I feel about the books. The same princables told diffrent. I find even if you know what the book is going to say somewhat that reading it in a diffrent format helps keep it interesting. For me the books also serve as a insperation. Reading them helps me hit the gym. I injoy the diffrent books rather then to keep reading one of them. Kind of like mixing up routines in the gym. Diffrent but same.
Just my thoughts.

Does his new book describe the correct form for some of the major exercises? If not can someone recommend one that does?
