"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."

Dr.Darden: AJ's Opinion on Microtrauma?



I have just been relaxing in the garden sunshine and flicking through TNHIT again and was wondering whether Arthur Jones ever expressed an opinion on microtrauma and it's role in strength and hypertrophy?

What got me to wondering was that in page 25 there is a quote:

"There's no doubt in my mind that for the purpose of building muscular size negative work is far more important than positive work. I don't yet know exactly why negative work is so effective. But I'm going to find out soon."

I know the subject has been covered before but I just assumed that knowledge of microtrauma caused through negatives had been around for a long time.

It'd just be interesting to know if Arthur Jones ever shared his thoughts on it with you or anyone else and what they were?
