"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.

Great Blu-ray if you don't already own it and has four different cuts of the film including the original work print.

Hey Kids,

Any theories on who's the new RX guy hiding behind a fake screen name?

Is this the Cursing Joshy* that some have received angry PMs from?
(*versus Civil, put P-A Joshy that posts as 'tifw')

Any other theories?


Took me a long time to get through this epic thread. But yeah...sooo obvious we got RenX guys using fake usernames and avatars here.

I wish we could get back to the strength training vs cumultive fatigue training debate. The bulking tangent is of zero interest to me.

Agreed. 'Bulkboy vs. the Voice of Reason' needs to be a separate thread.

Do you mean strength via straight HIT sets?

I'd been doing the change-up thing, with cumulative fatigue for a while. Clusters, NTF DC, drop sets were all tools I utilized. It worked very well for some time.

I hit a wall a few weeks ago where progress ground to a halt. I know that this is because I had not taken a real layoff for several months* --- so, to be clear, I do NOT blame cumulative fatigue style training for me hitting that wall.

(* I had been doing the 'active recovery'/light week thang for nearly a year now)

Anywho, after about 10 days off, I came back with a more Trad-HIT approach which I frankly haven't done for a loooonnnggg time.

My initial impressions are of Hardness (HIT) vs. Fullness (cumulative fatigue). Surely these are subjective impressions and I'll have more as I get more than just a couple of weeks under my belt.

Best Regards,
Scott

P.S. May have to start new thread or move this to a more representative one.

I think over the long haul, both play an important role in my training. I find a certain "heaviness" of training to be necessary for muscular density. I am not referring to low rep type training that some might think of, but near max loads in the 6-15 rep range (with cadences of around 2/2 for example).

The cumulative fatigue with lesser loads helps with fullness as pump and fluid is retained which also adds to the overall, muscular look creating more muscularity. I have recently switched to a more strength orientation or heavier style of training for now.

Yup.

Ridley's new movie is out this weekend...looks good, what a great director.

Have you never spoke publically, or done a lecture? When you squeeze off the last bit of breath talking, and within a few seconds you need to get more information out, you have no choice but to gasp in your next breath. Simply keep talking and go beyond 'x' number of words, to the point that you're squeezing out your air, and then try to keep up the talking without a sudden forceful inhalation.

Regardless, this is a stupid conversation. If you don't think the above occurs, then I must be a rare exception, because I've heard it and experienced it. Then again, I do lecturing and sometimes will need to get out a huge amount of information within 1-2 hours, whereas you play computer games in your basement.

I agree it?s beyond stupid...WHO THE FUCK CARES if he is not conditioned or takes a breath before speaks.
He is preparing for a contest, he is in a good shape....you are not!
Mabye it is not enough to win, mabye it is...but he is trying...you are just sitting on your ass in front of a computer.

Posting pics on this site is just like lifting up a stone and watch all these INSECTS crawling up


Trying? What the fuck kind of stupid concept is that?

Nope, you would just need to inhale, not forcibly. Why breathe in forcibly when at rest? I have seen this with overweight people who have to breathe hard even when at rest.


That's correct it's also IMO a common pattern with bodybuilders. If you think about it makes perfect sense and it's actually really simple (despite my wanting to over complicate it in order to sound clever) it just comes down to the fact that you train all the muscles in the gym which help you breath in or out with force. But you do not in 99.9% of cases train the one that is used to breath in while relaxed.

It's the same old basic story that we see in all movement dysfunctions. I don't think it's uncommon but I do think Josh is, assuming that's what it is (and given his over enthusiasm for shrugs I'd say it probably is) a very extreme example of this, it is unusual.

Then again it could be mild asthma resulting indirectly from all the weird arsed bacteria in his gut, accumulated from eating raw meat but it doesn't seem like it to me.

It could be anxiety, or maybe he just likes gulping air?

Fantastic shape Josh, Ace and Brian!

The back biceps pic makes it pretty clear Josh added another 20 lbs of lean mass for anyone still doubting.

Ace proves Jones adage looking strong enough to do one arm chins and dips with 250 lbs.

Brian has pretty tremendous leg development of all the structures.

I'm still doubting... we'll need to see the official weigh-in information, as well as his contest conditioning compared to previous competitions. If he did, then friggin' cool! If he improved, but it wasn't 20 pounds (based on getting fat as you suggest), then any improvement is good.
