"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.

In all of my decades of High Intensity Resistance Exercise, I have NEVER been injured. However, I have felt chronically fatigued with a few kinks along the way. By implementing NO MOMENTUM, LOW VELOCITY, REGULATING VOLUME and EXTENDING RECOVERY you too can be injury free, health positive, and blazing new grounds of HUMAN POTENTIAL ... eventually averaging 20 minutes every two weeks or about 30 seconds average per day! Uh, WOW!
The most recent (5+ years) change I've implemented was to reduce session volume while adjusting recovery time (Your strength will increase faster than your anatomy evolves across generations) Without adjusting session volume, one will quickly overload one's system and drastically affect one's heath and ability to recover (grow stronger) and ward off the ignorant afflictions of humanity.
This all assumes you are stopping (not maneuvering) enough focused gravitized weight to overload or approach overloading a muscle/muscle group.
Another aspect of applying resistance training to my overall health is a complementary life-style led by nourishment. Within 10 years most humans WILL avoid grains and sugars entirely ... with a few grams trickling in from certain healthy plants; complemented by a relatively high fat and moderate protein diet.
One can never imagine how great one can/will feel and experience life until one has eliminated these deadly items ... grains and sugar (of ALL types). I do not expect or desire a discussion since one MUST experience removal of these items to self actualize the benefits ... as I did many years ago.
I won?t ask for pics and I have no doubt that your system as described works from a pure size and strength perspective, but, although I can?t prove it, I am concerned that one forfeits some of the metabolic and systemic benefits of exercise by partaking so infrequently. Once every three weeks? With that frequency you can?t even include enough exercises to hit all of the musculature regularly.
With the crazed volumetric exercise protocols of the druggies and obese, or the development of State-of-the-Art protocols... a trainee can easily (or expectedly) become mixed up and unable to navigate to the Divine Principles of Human Strength Potential.
We have been Blessed with several "intermediate" steps of Resistance Exercise Best Practice of the Era or Times in which they were revealed. In each of these cases they abrogated earlier protocols, but eventually stagnated progress (when properly applied). UNTIL NOW when we are able to make limitless (though asymptopic) gains with the Concepts of: Focused Intensity, Reduced Volume, Reduced Momentum, Near Zero Speed and Extended Recovery. Our manifest experts of 2019 and beyond are Dr. Darden, John Little, Pete Sisco, and possibly Fred Hahn (if he became more active in his revelation).
So ... if you are not making progress you just might be deluded or confused or maybe stubborn. The gains and health benefits are there for those that will investigate the Truth from the buffoonery.
A special shout-out to Dr. Darden and John Little who have actively abrogated their previous protocols.
LOOKING FORWARD to Dr. Darden's Conceptualization of BACKLOADING which is quite simply this ... (IMHO)...
If one moves slow enough, a positive motion is fully "backloaded" to the point of a pure stop/hold and is NO DIFFERENT from a negative motion which is ALWAYS BACKLOADED. Thus as I pointed out a few months ago ... at micro-speeds or zero-speeds THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A POSITIVE or A NEGATIVE or A HOLD since they are all dampened by a gravitized force field we call WEIGHTS THAT FALL to the EARTH'S MASS if you let go.
