"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.

I live in Cedar Rapids, IA. My house was lost in the widespread flooding we had and I lost all of my workout gear and both of Dr Dardens' latest books. I was wondering if anyone else was affected by the flooding and if anyone could tell me where I could pick up those two books for cheap.

Thanks guys

You might be able to get a copy of The New High Intensity Training on half.com, but The New Bodybuilding for Old School Results.

What gear did you lose? We could probably recommend places to get good deals on replacements, or people here with extra gear might be able to donate.

I'm sorry to hear about your house. I hope your insurance covers everything and things return to normal as soon as possible. As long as you and your family are safe, everything else can be replaced.

Thnaks Drew, I have no problem finding new gear, my book collection was the thing i miss the most. I had Mentzers two latest books, Dr. D's books, some Arnold books I bought back in the day, (before I knew any better). Which reminds me, I was looking for new books and came across Max Contraction by John Little, his ideas are fascinating but I haven't had a chance to try out some of his workouts.(Whole body, isolation superheavy holds in the max contraction position for no more than 6 seconds on machines.) Has anybody tried these workouts and if so could give me any feedback before I try them.

Thanks again

If you're going to do Max Contraction, you'll need a very strong workout partner (preferably two) and a stopwatch.

If you have plateloaded equipment like Hammer Strength available it is preferable to selectorized machines. You will quickly run out of weight on most selectorized machines.

Max contraction can be performed with barbells on some exercises like curls and supine tricep extensions but you'll need to do them in a power rack to do it safely with the amount of weight you'd be using. This is one of the few times it is justifiable to curl in a power rack. The other is when you're doing negative barbell curls (squat down while resting the bar on the safety pins to get it in the top for the next negative).

Beauman,

I have copies of Dr. Darden's last two books and will send them to you if you want. I'm very sorry to hear about the flood damage. I hope your home is O.K.
You can message me through this site, I believe.

Thanks karma, Ive only trained 3 times in the last thiry days. Im really trying to get back into it. I've read those books a thousand times, reviewing the literature every day so that each workout is worth it. It good to know that are some cool cats out there who are also HIT users. I'll keep in touch.

Thanks Drew

Thats sound like a cool way to do Negative curls. I have very short bicep muscles on my 6'2 225 frame with 16 3/4" arms. Do you think that an exercise done in the max contraction position with very heavy weight be more effective than a full range set of curls.

Again, thanks everyone
