"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."

Hi Hutch,

2.5 in on your arms is a huge gain! Over what period of time did you make these gains?

Also what was the exact routine you have been following to make these gains and would you say it was all lean muscle and no bodyfat gain?

Thanks

Yeah, 2.5" on arms is an incredible gain ! I remember 'back in the day' it was usually thought that in order to put an inch on your arms you had to gain 10 pounds in body weight.

I said 8 months but looking back now it was closer to 10 months following the heavy duty 2 program but with 15-20 reps.

How about posting exact routine, all exercises , reps, warm up sets,, fullbody or spit, days per week, etc.
Looks like great progress and results.
What routine did you switch from?

That's some nice progress you've been making. It's very possible that the progress is a result of doing something you haven't done before. Do you follow the HD2 program with the suggested rest periods between workouts?.

Sounds like u found ur best rep range. I remember Steve Holman stating that he found ectomorphic body types (which he is) respond better to a higher 12-15 rep range.

15 to 17.5 inches on your arms in 10 months???
You must have gained 30 lbs bw then?

That's the best gains I've ever heard of anyone ever having!

So, is the HD2 routine the 4 way type split? Trying to remember how that one is laid out....

I wonder if using drop sets, similar to what was mentioned in the Frank Zane post, would work as well or better. For example starting with a weight that allows 8-10 reps to failure or 1 rep shy,then dropping the weight 10% continuing to failure again, followed by one more 10% weight drop and hitting failure one more time.

That would allow the use of a heavier weight but still end up with a 15-25 rep set total.

Something Ive been considering doing myself lately.

Hutch, were you using that high rep range on both exercises when performing the pre-exhaust supersets or only on one of them?

Did you follow the Torso / Legs / Delts/Arms / Legs sequence?

You'd think that after reaching Squat 325 x 22, WITH Leg Ext pre-fatiguing, there'd be a lot less light bulbish shape going on there!

15-20 on the first,12-15 on the second. 15-20 if it was only one exercise.
