"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.

Firstly may I congratulate you on the latest book, it is undoubtedly the best book I have read on the subject of bodybuilding/weight training and I am having as much enjoyment putting it into practice as I have had reading it.
My question is - I have been following the Upside Down Bodybuilding programme and am currently about to start Phase 3 which firstly employs the Superslow protocol. Training at home I have until this point merely substituted Squats for Leg Press where specified. Would this be practical for the Superslow stage given the mechanics of the movement or should I continue with this substitution. Furthermore, looking ahead a fortnight you suggest a wide stance on Leg press for the hips - what suggestions could you provide in this regard givent the same lack of a Presing machine.
I would very much appreciate any input on the topic.
You should have no problems performing SS squats. Dr. D has recommended them in his book "BIG", and I've performed them during that routine. Just remember to start off with an appropriate, light weight. Sorry I can't answer your second question. Good luck towards your goals.
Yes you may substitute the barbell squat for the leg press during Weeks 1 & 2. In Weeks 3 & 4, use the wide squat (instead of leg press) by moving each foot about 6 inches wider than a normal hip-width stance.
