"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."

More pics please if possible. Is that machine plate loaded?

Looks like a similar type of setup to the Frank Zane Leg Blaster.

Looks like a Paramount Pendulum Squat. Not original at all.

That approach to a squat machine is my favorite, allows you to go deep and torch your quads while minimizing back stress. Atlantis Fitness, Atlantis Strength and Paramount all make or made versions, looks like Joshua has tweaked the angle of the foot platform. Jeff, is this being marketed under the RenEx brand?

Looks like a more angled version of these?

Hi,

Joshua told me that he is selling/marketing his new machines with a separate company...

He'll probably install some superslow cam on that thing and try to sell to some poor schmoes for 8 g's.

Who claimed it is original? Any number of companies have made swing squats.

This machine is a generic lever. No one owns physics.

Joshua, was not happy with other swings he has used in the past and has spent a number of years tweaking swings to improve upon what was before.

I believe the foot plate angle is adjustable on the Pillar, which is a very nice feature.

I own a swing squat lever where the foot plate can not be adjusted. For myself, I think the angle should be a bit different on the machine I own. But no way to adjust it.

Yeah, reminds me a little of the leverage squat on my Powertec multi-station.

The other half of the Pillar and the movement arm used to counter balance the pendulum Squat.

If you build a machine for yourself, I imagine you could tweak it to feel pretty good. Whether it works as well for a bunch of other body sizes and types is another matter.

This seems to be a step away from the kind of machines he had been building under the Renex brand. Is this just a one-off project for fun, or does it indicate a change in philosophy with respect to machine design?

Perhaps my imagination, but doesn't his low back look a little rounded in that photo?

Did anyone else catch how revealing the comment is? This particular post encapsulates the lack of education on the subject.

God yes, I can't ever imagine Josh promoting a machine he's working on to make a buck.

It appears people would be more comfortable if no person in HIT was doing anything. It appears that the forum would prefer to discuss what was happening in 1971. Arthur Jones was most certainly and aggressively promoting his products, there just wasn't a internet then. I do find it very interesting how emotional the response is to anything Josh does.

Man, every man is an end in himself, not a means to the ends of others; he must live for his own sake, neither sacrificing himself to others nor sacrificing others to himself; he must work for his rational self-interest, with the achievement of his own happiness as the highest moral purpose of his life.
