"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 second that 100% and have some helpful advice:

The Spine Flexion machine; I already related this looks like a mideval torture device on the other thread, think the spine should be loaded from above re Wolffs law.

The leg press - a really really slow leg shaking video is not getting the message across; and the athlete "should have big wheels" to quote Josh explaining what leg training should do.

Josh should be modeling this video btw; using Al is like JamesT starring in the 5 minute Miracle video - not going to have the same impact.

Just my two cents; I don't do any of this for a living, hope you don't take my comments negatively.

Al,
I think drinking a lot of milk and cod liver oil is in order, and squatting heavy. Read some training articles by John Christy too; the techniques espoused could put 30-40 lbs of muscle on you in a couple of years if you keep an open mind.

Tomislav,

WTH is up with your fascination for cod liver oil? I understand the healthy fats - higher metabolism - more sex hormones connection, but why cod liver oil, and not, say, olive oil or krill oil? Cod liver oil has a lot of Vitamin A, which if taken in very large amounts builds up in the liver and can cause cancer. It used to be thought that large doses of Vitamin A could prevent cancer, until scientists decided to test this hypothesis on smokers. The result was that the smokers who took the Vitamin A had a much higher incidence of cancers than those who didn't! And this wasn't just one study, but multiple.

I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.

Krazy kaju,
Consider the top end in sustained therapeutic dosages is 50,000 IU daily for a 90 lb woman so 120,000 IU from 1/2 cup of cod liver oil is probably fine for me. And the vikings drank more than this.
Here's a more relevant study that found that Vitamin A had an effect equivalent to the administration of testosterone:

The site looks great! The "linear" spinal machine really caught my attention. Very clever design!

Some great videos on here of slow reps! Now I can see that I'm trying way to many reps ( 10--15) so next workout I'm going to add more weight so I can only do half as many.I think I need to slow it down even more as well.
Thanks Joshua

when i do weighted chins to failure, and then, hold as long as i can, and then, fight the negative, with all i have, i experience the same kind of shaking in my legs, even though it is an arm/back exercise.it is good to see others experience the same thing when they go all out. this guys arms are shaking from an all out leg exercise. this is good to see i thought maybe i had some kinda neurological problem--but it is only high intensity pushed to the limits. this is what has given me the best results. keep up the good work

Many people who are affiliated with slow-movement exercise
may wonder about the apparent jettisoning of the word 'slow'
from our moniker.

Realize that the single greatest impediment to the true
understanding of Hutchins's original protocol was the belief that slow movement was the target and focus.

Despite countless dissertations describing the assumed and
primary objective and despite the scrupulously written subprotocols for instruction on the equipment, most people simply never captured the genuine meaning.
