"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.

According to some on this forum everything is HIT and everything works so this must be HIT.

After watching some of the video with the "banging out the dents in the fender" and "throwing the baby to see it you can catch it" lifting, I wonder if you are insulting the inventors of J-reps?

Overfiftylifter-some of the maneuvers in the dips are similar to Matrix with partial movements mixed with full but we execute it in a different manner. We don't bounce like little bunny rabbits in the partials. We make complete stops. I am a little worried about the people at T-Nation but perhaps those little bunny lifts help us become more like what bunnies are famous for. Throw out the Viagra.

Couldn't bother watching the whole thing. Hey, they need to bolt that frame to the floor.. it would make for a more effective acoustic transfer as it seems like they are all about the noise of the workout as much as anything. Not sure that could be related to J-reps.

The banging around in a power rack made me actually laugh.

That seemed like the easiest workout ever.

What you should note in the video, and the other videos he has made, as they have muscles, they actually look like they train bodybuilding.

I mean your telling someone that actually looks very muscular he is wrong ??? Can you not see how dumb that looks, its like telling a formula 1 driver that he does not know do to drive around the track. As most here look like they belong to a long distance cycling group.

So I would be good to take note of what the videos say.

let's not forget AJ's method of training in thirds. Breaking the ROM of each rep of a set into THIRDS, the strongest portion of the REP is the first 1/3 worked, then the 2nd strongest, and finally the last 1/3, the weakest is the finish.

makes total sense, and is very hard!

sorry, i got it backasswards. it's the other way around. the weakest 1/3 of the ROM is worked FIRST,the muscle is "fresh". the LAST 1/3 worked is the strongest portion of the ROM.

While Jones may have written about that, it was not "his".

I first read about and practiced that type of training in the late 60's and it was called 21's.

As well the Power Rack usage as depicted in the T-Video is not new either, however it is the first time I have seen a full routine based on it.

You're funny Bill. Actually according to some on this site, if it ain't one set of 8--12 to failure it ain't high intensity no matter what you do or how hard you do it, ha ha

Ok I finally got to see the video. I don't know but it seems to be a very jarring type workout. Doesn't apeall to me at all. Like standing there banging a barbell into the wall for B presses? Might help in boxing but just seems too unnatural a motion for me.

Twitch reps which is one element used in the workout is very similar to (or maybe the same as) X-Reps. But so what? This is one part of the workout and the term X-Reps might be protected but you can't copywright a movement as far as I know.

If you could I'd apply for a copywright on wiping your arse and in theory you'd all have to pay me royalties every time you took a dump.

PS: I can't speak about Zone training as I've never read it, but there is no logic in saying He copied J-Reps which I have read.

It certainly ''ain't high intensity'' if you can do three sets of each exercise. ''No matter what you do or how hard you do it, ha ha''

Finally after all these years of arguments and debates about J-Reps we finally get to see a good selection of decent J-Reps videos.

Thanks very much for posting those Mike.

Whether or not people like J-Reps, your videos area fantastic display of high intensity training. Great Form and great effort.

You're in great condition. Is that the level of leanness that you aim to keep between contests?

Either that or no one would wipe so they wouldn't have to pay up and the world would become a much smellier place.

What i don't understand is why in each of those vids you never worked the ROM where the muscle is at its longest length?
