"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.

Hehe thats a crazy argument...luv it.

Yes and no. Coming up with ideas is fun, testing them is hard and can potentially result in lost gains.

It seems to me like JReps did the fun part and delegated the hard/risky part.
Because the reality is every exercise choice carries an opportunity cost.

Experimentation tends to be especially expensive in terms of opportunity cost. That is why people might cling to the tried and tested. Not because they literally cannot think of anything else to do.

PS: How about this for a unique approach to negative accentuated training for an example?

Go out onto the roof of your gym with a loaded barbell and jump off. Then attempt your landing on a single leg.

Maybe you'd like to test it for me?

Strange, Andrew, every recommendation I have made in any of my materials or videos I've actually implemented, tried, use regularly, etc. Not sure what bafoon would suggest jumping off something with a weight without having tried it or knowing the potential and dangerous outcome. I don't expect anyone to be the mad scientist with my recommendations, but to fine-tune that which I already have implemented and liked.

And if that 'something' that I recommend is too much for a person, they merely have to scale it back. It's like the flye and press recommendation of 9 total sets each (with each lasting about 20 seconds)... if you don't want to do three circuits of the movement, you merely have to do two... get through the first as a modest warm-up, then increase the loads slightly and finish it off. Then you have the choice of either doing or not doing the press. Pretty simple, duh! Rather, you get the peanut gallery yapping about how it's too much rather than adjusting according to one's individualism, while ignoring that a nearly 49 year old man can do it no problem.

So many seem not to trust their own judgment but it comes out as ignorant negativity towards others ideas. Makes you wonder what they are actually trying to build...

So you are saying that because you have implemented and liked something, then on the strength of this alone, it makes sense for people to pay money to find out what it is you like, and then fine tune it.

It's the potential value of what you could've done with time or resources you instead used for something else.

If you spend any time here you don't qualify for the calculation no ;?)

For those who ordered the Transitional Training DVD, I emailed a list of additional tips or points to make the most of the method, but also its application with regular training. If you did not receive an email, please PM me or email me. Thank you.

Is this training method something different from the Tri-Angular Training?

Yes; how you move the loads and the broad directions are very different in application.

HDLou... these comments came from a person who has and knows the Tri-Angular Training method:

"I am thoroughly impressed with the Transitional method...the movements are extremely unique and unlike anything I have seen before. Excellent stuff yet again. I tried my first workout yesterday integrating the method into a full body workout and it worked great! I'm having an easier week training wise this week, so worked up to around the 8.5 to 9 in effort, yet still feel solid and full in the muscles this morning.

I picked one or two exercises per body part using full range reps only (will start zoning and maybe free styling later on when I become more accustomed to things), mostly using the 'natural' applications but did try some of the more 'challenging' applications also. I could literally feel the 'newness' of the movements on my muscles from the first few reps."

Brian, I have ur Zone-Training CD Book. I never used that type of training exclusively but have used it on mostly isolation exercises while using full range reps on the compounds.

Performing 2 sets of Zone Reps for my biceps made them feel like they were ready to tear through the skin.

I really like using the J-Reps Extremes on calf raises. Seem to work really well there.
