"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.

Couldn't you have found one with Jones hunting a turkey, or holding a turkey-leg in his hand? LOL :)

David Landau, or Zander, maybe, you can supply a photo that is apropos to today! :)

Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and Happy Birthday to Arthur Jones!

The man had enough charisma, energy and presence, that although gone, he seems to be as much with us today. At least those who know who the heck he is and what he has accomplished.

It is very sad that he has done so much, and had such an influence in various disciplines (not just exercise), that few will remember his name 100 years from now. Newton, Gallileo and a few others had it lucky... not much competition when it came to recognition and being remembered. Today Jones is up against Michael Jackson, Kim Kardashi-who and other 'pop' icons. Those involved in the areas of intellect are nothing more than a bit of mist in the fog of idiocy.

I mentioned this before, but I was at a fitness tradeshow a few years back... visited the Nautilus booth, and not a single person there knew who Arthur Jones was. One could only laugh and cry, I suppose.

You are right few young people today have ever heard of Arthur Jones and it is sickening, that those who should know of him ie. fitness trainers coaches bodybuilders , physical therapists etc. , don't.

Present day Nautilus equipment leaves very much to be desired, obviously far deviated from the original concept.

This is the same for a lot of things though. My history dissertation looked at inventors in the textile industry in the 1800s in England. Some of the people involved who I researched invented in many fields not just textiles, and non of them are heard of today. The only entrepreneur in the textile industry people are remotely aware of is arkwright.

There are a lot of parallels between Jones and and entrepreneurs of a bygone age. Samuel Smiles self-help is a good read, a lot of the entrepreneurs mentioned in it have many of the same character traits as Jones.
