"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.

Dr. Ellington Darden

Your muscles can be, and should be, developed efficiently through intense, brief exercise. Intense, brief exercise works – only, and this is important, if you have the knowledge and the guts to train in this manner.

Almost anyone can make it through 3 sets of 12 exercises in 2 hours and call it a workout. But the real renegade is in and out of the gym – after 25 minutes of take-it-to-the-limit, heart-pounding, muscle-burning exercise. That, for the uninitiated, is high intensity.

It’s no shocker today that hard exercise isn’t mainstream.

If you’re unsure about whether or not to give high-intensity training (HIT) a fair trial, The New Bodybuilding for Old-School Results will knock you off that fence. You’ll either LOVE it or HATE it . . . you won’t be undecided.

WARNING: This new book is NOT for everyone. It’s for the few tough, disciplined men – who want bigger muscles . . . faster.

How does this book differ from "The New High-Intensity Training" which I already own? I mean, there are months of workouts in there . . . =)

The New Bodybuilding goes hand-in-hand with The New HIT. The New Bodybuilding contains interviews with master bodybuilders and coaches, such as Boyer Coe, Casey Viator, Dan Riley, Kim Wood, Jim Flanagan, Roger Schwab, Werner Kieser, and Joe Mullen. It supplies dozens of new whole-body routines; plus, specialized routines for the arms, forearms, chest/back, shoulders, and calves. And, of course, there are more Arthur Jones stories and adventures.

The New Bodybuilding is 50% longer (in number of words) than The New HIT and there are many great, wide-track, 2-page photos, which add to the excitement.

Dr. Darden!

Your interview and the review of your new book will be up at the Underground site tomorrow or over the weekend!

My quick take: LOVED this book like no other book I've read in AGES! I am a huge fan of the "old school, golden era" training and stories and this book had me reading with my eyes glued the same way I read the HIT books back when I was 13 and 14 and just started training!

Thank you sincerely for taking the time for the interview Dr. Darden.

I am grateful!

best,

zach even - esh

I bought your NEW HIT book and love it. I have one question about supplements and can't find reasonable answers anywhere. SO I was hoping you'd be able to settle this once and for all. I am using certain N.O. products by BSN. Are they really beneficial? If I do need supplements, what do I need to get results. I am familiar with your 14 day creatine loading program. With all these different types of creatine now a days that claim no loading phase is necessary, is this true? I'm just not sure if I can trust what I read on labels and on the internet. Thanks

I doubt that you need supplements, especially not N.O.

Trust my creatine loading recommendations. They still work.

Dr. Darden,
In 1990 I participated in a study based upon the 6 Week Fat to Muscle Makeover. It was my understanding that this study at a small exclusive gym i attended was the result of some work you were doing at SW Medical School.

In 6 weeks I lost 27 pounds, added several pounds of muscle, and changed my whole physic. I have just completed doing this diet and training program again. This time i have lost 35 pounds in ten weeks.

I am now wanting to do some body building. Will your new book show specific HIT exercises and workout routines? I'm grateful for you science and so are a number of friends who watched my results and adopted your programs as well

Yes, I believe the new book, and the many routines, will work well for you. I don't remember you, specifically, but I do remember the program.

Best,

The book is written for men. But almost everything in it applies equally to women. If you read and liked The New HIT (2004), then you'll enjoy and profit from The New Bodybuilding for Old-School Results.

Hi,

I'm a huge fan of Mike Mentzer and his training method of HIT. How "near" is your book "The NEW Bodybuilding, Old-School Results" to Mentzer's theory? Have you optimized Mike Mentzers thoughts or are you trying to reanimate the HIT by its classic way? You choose a quote from Arthur Jones, it's quite interesting..

In my opinion, HIT is mostly unknown, especially here in germany.
How many sites has your book?

With best regards..iguy

Go into "It's Here: The New Bodybuilding" article under the first section for more details about the book. The manual is not widely distributed. It's sold primarily on this Web site.

Hello Dr. Darden,

Do the H.I.T. training methods apply to teens and those beginning weight training? I've been training with weights for about 30 years, though haven't really made any significant gains since my 30's - it's been basically maintaining the muscle and staying lean (or trying to). At 45, can I gain new muscle/strength/ with H.I.T.? -Rich B.

Rich B,

Yes, the new HIT principles apply to someone that's 45. You should be able to make some significant gains with them.

I just read NEW HIT. About the work out routines, you list 4 routines for beginners. Do I do routine #1 for a the first week, then move to routine #2 on the second week and so on. Or am I just not getting it.

Thanks
