"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."

Did you see this from your source:

"He eats once a day, skipping breakfast and lunch. After a long, intense day of training, he eats salad and bread for dinner. He doesn't care for meat or fuss about getting enough protein. Walker's a vegetarian."

Now I KNOW he can do it! lol ;)

"He eats one meal a day, at night," he said of Walker's meal plan. "He has salad, soup, maybe CHICKEN soup, and bread, and he's not afraid to put BUTTER on it. He eats no meat and no fish."

The "secret": chicken and butter! Good choices for a vegetarian. :)))))

I'm not "down" with his diet or workout views. Think he's a one-in-a-million kinda guy as far as genetics go. But I do think it's cool that an almost 50 year old man is mixing it up with young guys in MMA.

Try 1 in a 100,000,000 kind of guy.


I remember having lunch with Lee Kemp 3x World Champion FS wrestler and John Mathews 10 x GR National Champion both ate no meat because when they did they gained too much muscle(like anybody on this board suffers from that curse.)

Any of you guys think that maybe Mr. Walker is embellishing on his diet a bit? I am not 100% convinced.

Perhaps his business handlers feel it would bring attention to him.

Balanced meals aside at a lean weight of 220lbs and working out 6 hours a day the soup would have to be mostly fat and the salad loaded with high-fat dressing plus he'd have to put a thick slab of butter on his bread and have a very slow metabolism.

As far as not eating meat because it makes someone gain too much muscle. I have serious doubts!

Walker has a long history of "embellishment."
He is mentally unstable. He seems to have himself quite convinced but many of his roommates and teammates have let it be known as nicely as they could that Walker just doesn't do what he says he does....
I believe he was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder or whatever the psychiatric term is for it. He has had numerous blackouts and doesn't even remember many of his best achievements.
He thinks he knows why these other personalities come out but that's another story...
At least he's interesting. Find what you can on him because it's strange, to say the least.

He claims to do 1,500 pushups a day,yet when asked how many sets and reps that takes,he replied don't know just do as many as I can during commercials.To backup the previous post he is very mentally unstable which is sad but you do have to question many of his statements.How long would it take to do 1,500 pushups? Remember Wilt Chamberlin claimed to have slept with 10,000 women? Granted who knows but the numbers are pretty crazy.

Trying to do emulate Walkers way of doing things is like trying to do as Sergio Oliva did to get results. Compared to most of us they're like beings from another planet.

i believe Walker is telling the truth about his training and giving his best estimate of what he actually did/does

I wouldn't have believed all this either but I remember reading an article from a sportswriter when Walker was with the Eagles and he said AFTER a full practice he stayed and watched Walker do 1000 pushups and 1000 situps alternated in sets of 100. Whatever he's doing and eating its clear he has unreal genetics. Did you see his last UFC fight? Not that it was that great but he was barely breathing hard at the end.

i remember a sports illustrated article in the early 80s that claimed the same crazy numbers with all types of bodyweight only exercise. like 1000 pushups/sit-ups and some crazy number of pull-ups---there does seem to be consistency in his claims over several decades so i do believe he is telling the truth even though he may be a little unhinged

This guy is a genetic freak. I'm surprised anyone doubts what a freak does with PART of his bodyweight.

I agree with what a poster said, he's not 1 in a million, he's 1 in a 100 million.

I like his mindset, but I would never try to emulate his training and dietary habits.

I don't know I think you guys are making more of it than it is. He's just a hard worker. He trains six or seven days a week for six or seven hours a day...eats twice a week on Wednesday and Saturday. That's using HVT. If he was doing HIT he'd only need to eat once a month, that's twelve times a year. Sure, he'd still be using a lot of air, but no where near as much as some of you guys.
