"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."

It should be possible to give karma (green) to a person who contributes to this forum in a positive way (and maybe some red karma to the persons who contribute to this forum in a negative way).

There is one person who really deserves a shitload of karma and that person is Andrew42. I'm enjoying every post you have, always answering in a polite and objective way.

Ever considered writing a book? I would have bought it..

I second the motion.

I may not be one of the top assheads on this site, but I sure have thrown my share of daggers. After just having read the duel going on the "Upper Chest" thread, I can say that the passion for our dearly-held beliefs sometimes override our better natures.

My hat is off to anyone who manages to NOT contribute to such negative energy. I always have to remind myself that no one makes me mad --- it's always my decision.

I agree, ive often thought he should write a book, Andrew has a lot of good knowledge probably more than anyone else on this forum.

I agree, Andrew's posts are very well reasoned and put forth in a logical manner. Even if I do disagree with him, from time to time.

HIT:

I am completely humbled by your extension of gratitude and appreciation.

I must admit there have been times (especially recently) where I have considered discontinuing my posts altogether - questioning if the time and thought I put into sharing my experiences and views was actually connecting with those who might benefit from it.

This is an anonomous forum and I seek no spotlight or adulation. I choose to share my thoughts and experiences because at one time I was the most obessive young trainee and wasted thousands of dollars and hours relying on the advice of "so called" experts. That was both an exciting and painful/frustrating time for me.

Today; with over 20 years of accumulated wisdom, it is most fulfilling to help others "find their way" - not by telling them to do it "my way" - rather by sharing the type of thinking and experimentation that lead to my conclusions and results from weight training that I am now thrilled with.

The real success "secret" always lies in the PRINCIPLE; not in the particular practice/method. With principles as your "compass" you will come to find the truth within yourself that no one else but you can ever come to know.

As for writing a book - maybe I'll arrange and edit my posts for a compilation album - LOL :-) In the meantime; I hope Dr. Darden was able to fit some of my comments from this Forum in THE NEW HIT 2. It was an honor for him even to suggest it a few months back.

Thanks again HIT. You reminded me that those who post represent a minority of the people that benefit from these discussions.

I'm glad to make a difference....

I too find your posts very clear and informative. From time to time I do a search to remember what you said in a post about certain topics.

Please do not give up sharing your ideas. There may be a few loud people that disagree with your opinions, but there are many silent readers that you have influenced in a big way.

I also think your opinions would be a asset to The New H.I.T 2 book.

Take care

It was through Andrew that I gained an understanding of the Blitz cycle and I am currently trying his intensity cycling scheme with good results.

Always gracious, even in the face of extreme silliness from both sides (HIT Jedi and HVT zealots).

I would also like to thank Andrew42 not only for his insightful posts but the fact that he was willing to converse with me through a couple private messages about my training and gave me some really exciting gems to put in my training tool box.

Drew Baye is another great member to this website and I think his posts are well written. He has also been kind enough to answer questions I have had. Both Andrew and Drew's posts are well written and have really gotten me to think even more about training (a little outside of the HIT box). I will never forget this quote from Andrew42: "overtraining is a process not an event." Great work Andrew and Drew, please keep posting.

Ditto... Andrew 42 really makes me think. I often use all my will power to remain humble and not respond to certain posts.

I've been reading Drew Baye for years now on different web sites and have gleaned a plethora of knowledge from him. I wish he could convince Dr Doug McGuff to post(that would be a treasure)

Bill1 is another. He's older and experience is the best teacher therefor I value his input. He's already made the mistakes we're gonna make. An intelligent man learns from his mistakes... a wise man learns from the mistakes of others.

Thanks again guys.

This feedback and a slew of recent PMs have sparked me to expand my writing on a few concepts.

Some new threads coming up....

You are truly welcome Andrew. We look forward to the new threads! Also ditto on Bill1 being a wise old hoss. I enjoy reading his posts as well. Not to forget Ashortt either, he is a pretty sharp guy and I have enjoyed reading his posts as well. Anyway, back to the man we are honoring. Keep it up Andrew42, we are counting on it.
