"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.

A friend recommended a book to me which appears to be a great tool for helping you to seperate the crap from the good scientific studies (of which apparently the good are few and far between).
I recently got in the habit of trying to ignore 'em, as Drew quite rightly stated that you've got to read the whole study not just the conclusion etc. to understand what is being written about. And many supposed professionals hide behind dubious studies, like that tosspot who did research on the cybex isokinetic machine (the one who falsified results - according to Hutchins).
After seeing lots of jargon spewed across the page I thought ignorance was bliss and I know HIT works, so screw those ignoramuses who say otherwise.
However, as I want HIT to spread in the field I am working in (rehabilitation) - I realise that one of the best way to push things further in the medical community is with studies. I know lots have been done with HIT, but I feel that a new wave of studies is long overdue!!!
I've read a little from the book 'How to read a paper: The Basics of Evidence Based Medicine' and it looks good. Just thought it may help those (like myself) who would love to pick up a study and immediately tell whether it is worth the effort to read and possibly believe!! It is a recommended text in the UK for all medical/health students and those interested in scientific literature.
