"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 have followed Grant's posts for years and laughed at the humor which undoubtedly follows. Ironically, his posts could be lumped into the look the part thread. However, at some point, the criticism becomes hypocritical. Think about the converse, just because someone looks good does that mean their training advice should be taken as gospel?

Many would agree that one grows with rest and that over-training can be counter productive.

Many might also agree that what works for one might not be the best way for another to train.

Many might also concede that learned skill can affect how one improves in Olympic type lifts. (In other words there could be improvement without actually gaining much muscle.)

A handful might even agree that some can obtain gains using exercises that have little or no movement. Same might be true as to low volume strength training.

Yet if one does not look the part, most of us might unfortunately conclude that what the writer advocates is without merit.

While Grant is fair game, I think it unfair to take shots at someone like Bayes or McDuff when they seem to truly want to help improve peoples lives. Just the opinion of an old fart who has been around probably longer than I deserve.

Scott:

I think you will find that Grant's posts on here go back to at least 2014. But his posts have appeared on numerous forums over the years. Clearly an over the top poster designed to generate laughs and responses; however, some of what he says may have merit. This appears to be especially true when you consider that the goals of readers of this forum may vary. But without a photo, just another poster without substance. I will try to go back to a quiet learker.

He was a regular on the BBS web site before it got wiped out by hackers. I think his posts might go back as far as 2011 on that venue.
