"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.

So today, after my main lift, i decided to have a go at ramping static holds on a pec deck machine.
It went like so after a warm up...
- 120kg x *
- 130kg x *
- 140kg x *
- 150kg x *
- 160kg x 13 seconds
- 170kg x 10 seconds
- 180kg x 6 seconds
* 15 second holds
The only rest was changing the weight for each hold.
I dont believe its at all neccesary to come back down the weights like with MPP, essentially it would be like preforming one drop set after another.
Pecs where well and truely pumped and fatigued. My conlusion, A nice change of pace, intense, concentracted and something different. I may salt it in here and there on a couple of exercises, but its not a means to an end.
