"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."

What?? They don't get big wrestling? Come on, I've followed "real" wrestling including high school and college and some of these guys are built like hulks and they don't do anything else but wrestle. Wrestling builds loads of muscle! If they weren't always cutting weight they would be huge!

The best thing about wrestling muscle is that it was gained actually doing an activity that is practical and used in the real world. They didn't just get big standing around lifting barbells up and down or going from one machine to the next.
Who's gonna kick ass more, a muscular guy with 18 inch arms who was a wrestler who got that muscle picking up and throwing guys around or one who got that big just lifting weights, ha ha..

Thank you very much Josh, greatly appreciated feedback. I agree, my posing is still in it's "primitive" stages... I'll be working on ways to display myself better during the mandatories this year.

I also messed up the final 2 days, as I learned that the IDFA had removed the light-heavies division... I scrambled to get my weight down to the middleweights (175lbs), but missed the mark by 2 pounds... Ended up flat and lost alot of the conditioning you see in this pic above...
I was much smoother the day of the show, with little vascularity... Next time, I'll just let my body do what it wants and not try stupid last minute adjustments to make a certain weight-class.

Well, you've "fixed" that issue! Top to bottom thickness. Great acheivement for any bodybuilder, but even moreso for a Natural athlete.

No, wrestling or weight lifting for that matter won't make one as big as a Dorian Yates if you don't have the genetic's to get big but it can make one pretty damn muscular.I've followed wrestling for many years and been around lot's of wrestlers who did nothing but wrestle and some of them had bodies like a bodybuilder. Most of them never touched a weight.They didn't get big and strong eating bonn bonn's. They got big wrestling.

Thanks for everyone for the kind words.
Turpin and MD, my trainig has really come together over the last year, after experimenting with DC and many HIT variants over the last few years...

I've been making great improvements in strength and thickness by doing a 3 way split (A)chest-shoulders-triceps,
B)Upper back-biceps,
C)Heavy Squats and Lower back dominant work,
D)Legs(no lower back involvement)-Calves

All major muscle groups are worked as follows: 1 heavy set, rest-paused to acheive 8-10 reps in three sets, 30 seconds rest.
Once complete, I will move on to do 2 exercises with weights that allow 12 easy reps on the first set - I continue to use the same weight until the reps fall to 6 in the subsequent sets (normally, I'll be able to do 6-7 sets with this weight). At that point, I move on to another exercise and repeat the same process. Only 30 seconds rest between each of these sets.
The goal is to keep as much blood/nutrients in the targeted muscle while expanding the fascia from stretching and "pumping" the fascia. I stretch after each excerise. The combination with a great pump makes this very painful.

Example chest: incline press: 6 reps,thirty secs,3 reps, thirty secs,2 reps. Shake it off, walk over to next exercise...
Hammer strenght press, adust seat for greater stretch: 12 reps, thirty secs rest,11 reps, thirty secs,10 reps, thirty secs,8 reps, thirty secs,6 reps - too low, move on to incline fly, repeat above. Stretch pecs.

I feel this really helps my recovery, as I can train this fashion and continue to make strength gains. I train my chest-shoulder-tris and back-bis 1-2x week. Lower back and/or Legs at once per week. So, on average, i'm in the gym 4 days/week.

So, it's almost a combo of DC and FST 7, with a little less volume. I like the stretching and volumizing work aspects and I feel that I have a much better "sense" in my stubborn muscle groups.. (better control and feel, especially lats).

That's it in a nutshell.

For the record my legs always look their best when i include BOTH a leg extension (preferably Nautilus or Medx) and a heavy compound movement (leg press/squat etc) in my routine

Mark H

I agree , I had to leave compound movements for the legs out for a lengthy period of time due to a lower back issue and my legs suffered a drastic loss of size ( & a degree of definition too IMO ) , however once I resumed compound movements again ( leg press ) both size and definition returned .... ( although MY definition is no where near your incredible condition Mark )
Pic 1; was when squatting heavy.
Pic 2; Isolation work only
Pic 3 on returning to compound work by way of leg presses

Best wishes T.



Based on your vastus medialis, it's obvious your quads are larger under the leg extension. your adductors larger under the squat but that's not surprising (leg extension isn't supposed to work the adductors)

However had you worked an ADDUCTOR MACHINE with the leg extension I FEEL your thigh size will have exceeded "squat thigh" size (or at least reached)

Perhaps ( who knows ) , but I dont believe so `southbeach`. I believe my thighs to display more shape/seperation to-date without the squat or leg ext , with the leg press being the only exercise I have used for some considerable time.

Best wishes , T.
