"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."

Points of Exercise Science in 2017 ...

Super Slow does not work beyond initial gains (6 months) if performed correctly. Why ... it is so intense that gravity circuited lifting capability increases faster than one's ability to NOT outoad. After a period of months "gains" are due to skill development and eventual cheating aka outroading, squiggling, shifting, coaching, coaxing ..

My recent workout after two weeks:
Leg Press MaxpPyramid increasein 5 pounds and 7 seconds. More than I prescribed (and expected), but I Shoulda Known Better since i haven't done any "legs"since early April.

Pull Down Max Pyramid gain in 10 pounds

Shoulder Shrug Max Pyramid gain in 5 pounds

Tripce Extension (demo) 303030 gain in 7 seconds held gravity weight due to previous (April) session early runaway

How many understand then need for safe and focused ultra intensity, rest and regulating overall volume? If you do than you will/have seen gains in size EVERY workout like me.



The number of people who die every week from outroading, and associated things like heaving, ratcheting, squirming, gaming, etc., is just astonishing. It is a national tragedy.....

I guess Planet Fitness or whatever gym that cancels your membership for grunting is on the right track after all.

Once my membership is up I'm looking for an 'Anti-Grunt' gym ... one with ferns, polished chrome, trainers in dress shirt and tie with cuff links, tie tacs and stop watches. I want some class in my workouts now.

And water has to be drank with a straw ... no dribbling onto you chin and tee shirts.

WTF ... this is 2017 ... you're not a bunch of cavemen .

Gains in size every workout!!! Man, you must be one hell of a monster unless maybe you've only actually done a hand full of workouts??

As one progresses one must assure focused intensity, recovery, and by association, reduced volume per workout.
This is Grants application of the top experts in the resistance exercise field ... Little, Hutchins, Darden. I am leaving McGuff out as of now since he has not adapted SS principles into reduced volume ... as such his epic work BBS now serves as an intro text, and confuses those who aspire to genetically available potential capacity.
In my view, from a plateau of non-ending progress, "your" views are shortsighted and by definition self limiting.

I'm not sure how writing a book with a recommend once weekly Big 5 is epic. But to each their own.
With the exception of Dr Darden, the names you mention certainly do have the physical appearance of scientists. Definitely not exercise scientists though.
Why not post a few pics of yourself and your epic exercise scientists and show us what we're all missing out on?.

Describing oneself in the third person? That's a new wrinkle. Congratulations on graduating from Snickers to Payday!

Grant this is great! I'm not sure I understand what you're saying but I tried this workout two times and my biceps went up from 15 1/2 to almost 20 with 57 inch chest and 27 waist.I never dreamed I'd look like a peak Dave Draper so easily! I can't wait to see how big I get after I really understand you!!

I actually average a session every two to three weeks with a TUL of about 300 seconds. It may sound unbelievable, but I do hold immense gravity circuited weight. In fact occasipnally I may be off for three or more weeks, and inevitably log even better results.

You might log better results, but do you see any improvements in your physique? .
This all sounds very much like
Power factor training, static contraction training, max contraction training, Body by bs, all sounded pretty awesome in theory , but are all flops at an attempt to reinvent the wheel. A static hold at the end of a set taken to failure is a great technique, but that's the extent of it. Mike mentzer had the best static hold recommendations Imo.

I agree, Mikes static hold recommendations were better, Little's recommendations were based on Mullers research in the 50s, Mullers research later turned out to be overstated and could not be replicated.

You're training too much . Didn't you learn anything from Jones and Darden.

If you can get back to the gym by 2022 you simply aren't training hard enough ... WTF ...

Speaking of static training. I have a friend who bought a 1 rep streamline gym from Pete Sisco . Paid almost 5 grand for it. It has been in his basement collecting dust and for sale on kijiji and craigslist for about 5 yrs now. He can't even give the damn thing away.

Have you seen that hilarious article on Siscos site with the guy that claims to have gained 35lb of pure muscle with 6 months between workouts...which consist of 45 seconds training time?
Of course the only evidence he provides of his claims is a picture of himself standing on a beach with his back to the camera. He claims hes approx 18 percent bf, but its pretty clear hes at least 30 percent lol.

Sisco is comedy at best, in terms of being a "fitness expert".

Yep, 3500 + shipping from the US to Canada. He bought it at least 15 yrs or so ago. Talk about the lazy man's workout!.

The older I get. The more I see how much of a scam and a joke the fitness industry is. There's countless people on youtube claiming to be fitness guru's, claiming to be natural. Everyone and their uncle is cashing in on the madness. I feel bad for all the 16 yr Olds that follow all these juice freaks and believe every word they hear. It's really not any different from growing up reading the magazine's before the Internet. The blind lead the blind.

Right, so why feel bad for them ? As you said , we did the same thing by reading the Weider magazines back in the day - it's what motivated us to even start training. The ones who are serious will stick for life because they have a serious interest while the others fall out ... like anything else. I can honestly say taking up this hobby/interest was one of the best things I ever did and have no regrets about it - other than dedicating 9 months to Super Slow training, LOL.

I know all about the drugs , the lies' , the politics etc. but that 'look' - the 'unnatural' look - is what motivated me and still motivates me after 35 years of training, I didn't use it for an excuse to quit ... you just keep training because you love it.

I got lit up seeing Franco hit that incredible lat spread even though I knew I'd never have lats like him .... I could not get motivated to train looking at an 'attainable' physique of an underwear model in Sears catalogue.

But that's just me ...
