"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.

I had a lady who wanted to try something new, so I say "I've got just the thing." 30-30-30, of course.
I decided to demonstrate in real time, but I'd never actually done this myself (ha!). I selected a very light load (for demo purposes only), jumped in the leg press, quickly lifted the weight and started Neg 1. Completed that on schedule and stared the positive, also good smooth timing through the stroke, but started getting shaky at the top, but no real problem. The lady commented on my muscles firing/twitching and I started back down and had no problem until the last few inches, which were hard to control.
I didn't really have any burning like with 10/10, but after doing that my legs felt "different." I've never experienced that exact feeling. I also didn't get sore at all, but my legs didn't feel "right" until about the 3rd or 4th day.
