"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.

If any of you get bored with your scheduled workout and want to try something short 'just for kicks' try the Trap Bar DL / Clean and Press combo like this :
Pick a weight you can do a hard 20 reps with for the Deadlift and a weight you'd have a hard time getting 12 with in the Clean and Press.
Do the DL for 12 reps and immediately pick up the barbell and do 10 reps in the C & P.(A Fat bar is even better for the presses)
Rest two minutes and try for those reps again ;
Rest two minutes and try for those 12 HL's and 10 C&P again.
That's it ...
First time I did this I was gasping for air harder than I ever did - almost to the point to where I started thinking I wasn't going to enough oxygen in fast enough with out an oxygen bottle !
Lot's of fun, huh ?
So many times I think about this stuff ; coming up with stuff that leaves you down and out on the floor in a cold sweat, walking around sore all the time, spending your 50th birthday trying to DL 405 X 15 instead of sitting in Pizza Hut with friends, pizza and a pitcher of beer like you should be.
You have to be a little 'off' to be doing crap like this, don't you think ?
