"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."

Others can join in as well if they want.

But my questions are in your two books 32 in 32 and ASAP the people lost almost the same amount of weight at the end of the study. But in ASAP you had them start at 1300, was this to get there spirits up higher by the fast loss of fat. In the 32 in 32 they started at 1500 and by the end of a month dropped about 20 something pounds or so ( most of the men).

Is there an advantage of starting the calories lower?

Also in both books superslow was used but in the newer book like bowflex body plan they did a 3/3 or 4/4.

Would you, if training people today, train them in a superslow fashion or just a nice moderate pace?


Thank you for the time.

Both the 32/32 style and the ASAP style seem to work well. I'm not sure which one is best.

Which form of doing repetitions do I prefer? If you understand superslow, and have good instructors, I'd start people on superslow initially. Then, after several months, you can ease them into 3/3 or 4/4.

SS is most appropriate for the recently converted HVT-people who don't yet understand the concept of minimizing momentum and keeping strict form. IMO, those that have already over-learned these concepts would be better off with faster reps, 2/2 - 4/4 or something in between, depending on the exercise's range of motion.
