"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."

It is more than likely that ...

... if one disputes the Science of Darden and Little, they are not using enough focused weight in their exercise, and unable to fathom what they are missing.

COLORADO EXPERIMENT 2019 REVISIITED and REVEALING the UNBOUND PROTOCOL ...

This decades old Colorado Experiment focus on Negative Resistance was dabbling in the right direction of 2017-2020 State-Of-The-Art. In fact, when one removes momentum (and by extension most velocity) from an exercise one CANNOT DISCERN a negative FROM A positive .... because THEY ARE THE SAME THING! This is becoming evident in my training, and was likely what the progressive revelations of SuperSLow, SloBurn, HeavyDuty were glimpsing. In fact (IMHO) Dr. Darden's new ideas on "BackLoading" will be VERY REVEALING. Congrats to Dr. Darden (and John Little) who have progressed and developed their insights into new protocols ... despite the fact that they were previously at the cutting edge of Resistance Exercise Science numerous times over the decades. This will be re-posted under my Subject also :)

Good Work Mike! Perhaps you might consider a 2020 SOtA Experiment using ZERO MOMENTUM, NO OUTROADING with VOLUME REGULATION! From the SEVENTIES to the FUTURE in ony 50 years!

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD it SHOULD BE ... in Resistance Exercise Training.

Today I performed two exercises with INTENSE and FOCUSED LOADING.

a) Back Extension 303030 (plus 5 pounds)
b) Pulldown 303030(plus 5 pounds)

Reminder PS: Why do I do 303030 Motionized Training instead of Max Pyramid Motionless Training on some exercises? ... because I runned outta weight! DO NOT under-estimate your potential to Progress & Gain through focused intensity & regulating your volume and recovery.

A tremendous feeling of Health and Systemic Well-Being since my body was only affected by a directed dose of Gravity Circuited Weight into two muscle groups. No ROBAT, no HARM, with a regulated session volume. However, the weights used are "maxxive"!

Cheers in Health, Progress and Strength!

Folks at Home

As I look forward to my "workout" tomorrow I am self aware of the gains that I will GUARANTEE and assure in my three exercises. I can rest tonight knowing exactly HOW(reps) WHEN(seconds) and WHAT(quantified gravitized weight) I will inroad/fail at. This will assure GAINS in size, strength, and future ability (aka progress). Of course I also assure Adequate Rest, Avoid System Overload, Avoid Momentum & Acceleration, Reduce Motion, Neutralize Outroading ... all while practicing a healthy lifestyle via LCHF nutrition once a day.
YOU have a Divine responsibility to INVESTIGATE TRUTH and not be Bull-Jived or Choomed into crazy ideas.
Cheers!

Today in Exercise Science ... a revelation or an observation. YOU DECIDE! A finer focus on a gravitized load...

I've noticed this in my previous Max Pyramid Abduction Leg Exercise, and since I hardly ever do these it is an infrequent observation that I have been volitionally testing the last few months.

This exercise is performed Max Pyramid with immense weights (20 second hold). HOWEVER ... if I allow the rubber stops on the pads to touch I experience an actual unloading since I have now "short circuited" the gravitized weight stack and now transferred the load into a static compressive force with no backload. In other words ... keep the pads/stop from touching! I have also noticed this same issue on my 303030 back extension when I am a little "fast" on the positive and "hit" the stop.

I believe this is part of the epicurean works that we will soon have from Dr. Darden known as "BackLoading". I could be wrong on Dr. Dardens epic ... but I AM RIGHT on the need to assure a gravitized force load on our muscles. This Divine force/element is necessary to load/dampen a muscle ... at least in this Temporal Universe :)

Is anybody here making PROGRESS besides me (at 61 years young)?

System Overload and its Effects on Health

I am currently thunking deeper into the affects of inflammation on health and how Exercise Outroading and Excessive Session Volume limits the ability of our own Bodies to battle inflammation if not cause inflammation. I do recall in my SuperSlow years that I continually battled colds and aches and pains and robat. How much of a diversion do we inflict on ourselves thus limiting our body's healing and repair?

J. Mark Davis, E. Angela Murphy, Martin D. Carmichael and Mark R. Zielinski shared their thoughts on inflammation and how to reduce it back in 2007. They opined that "intense exercise can induce muscle damage and inflammation depending on exercise mode, intensity, and duration."

Surprisingly, they also opined that exercise "... with a large eccentric component (lengthening of a muscle that is actively developing tension) produces the greatest muscle fiber damage, inflammation, delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and various functional deficits."

They further opined that "... muscle-damaging exercise may be triggered by a large increase in inflammatory cytokines in the working muscle, plasma, and perhaps even the brain."

Their study concluded that curcumin reduced these negative effects on running performance by reducing inflammatory cytokines and creatine kinase.

So, Grant, the hypothesis that curcumin can reduce inflammation and offset some of the performance deficits associated with eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage as some science behind it. Read: https://www.physiology.org/...regu.00858.2006

There is likely a difference between acute inflammation from an exercise session, and chronic inflammation from disease or unhealthy life style. Inflammation after resistance training be a necessary trigger for hypertrophy.

It has recently been shown that the use of high dose anti-inflammatory drugs (i.e., ibuprofen) can suppress the hypertrophic response after exercise:

In the last year or so perhaps my greatest HEALTH FEAR is the affects of inflammation (chronic) particularly on heart impacts. More and more "labeled" medical professionals are coming around to the culprit of system inflammation on most diseases and the contributions of stress and carbohydrates. In my case I attempt to reduce inflammation through ...

1) Near-Zero Carbs (<25gm per day)
2) Reducing exercise induced system-wide inflammation (volume reduction with extreme localized intensity)
3) Control of Hidden Mental Stress
4) Assurance of Proper Cholesterol in my body (i.e High HDL, Low Triglycerides (marker)). When HDL and Tri's are great one can IGNORE the "so-called" bad (wrongly calculated) LDL.

It is amazing as most folks on our Planet are now able to GREATAWAKEN as information flows freely more and more day by day. However, it requires sifting

The IMPORTANCE of ASSURING GRAVITIZATION

Folks at home: If you have not yet self-researched and applied the Principle of Near-Zero Motion Application of Weights than you are missing out on progressive and "relatively" limitless gains. Gains in Size, Strength and Applied Weight.

You will see/feel that with zero motion (aka hold) and near-zero motion aka (virtually no momentum) one backloads the muscle(s) with a gravitized "force" that eliminates the distinction between a "positive", "negative" and/or "static" With Gravitized Backloading THEY'RE ALL ALIKE which assures NO OUTROADING, NO SYSTEMIC OVERLOAD and NO EXCESSIVE JOINT STRESS.

These elements assure progress when coupled with a Prescribed Volume (aka session reduction) and Adequate Recovery. Another way that I regulate my volume is to be sure my major compound muscle groups DO NOT exceed four minutes per session (FOR NOW (2020)). This is best accomplished with Max Pyramid, but may require Done-In-One or 303030 if machines do not provide adequate weight.

Cheers ... see next note on Nutrition.

The Pursuit of Lifestyle Nutrition and Avoidance of Inflammation

Folks ... I am not a medical professional, but I am an expert of Humanity that realizes ... INFLAMMATION must be avoided.

In my experience excessive physical (or mental) stress will cause a system wide inflammation response (ROBAT and OUTROADING and OVER-TRAINING). AND ... Poor nutrition (that includes grains, sugars and carbs) will result in constant inflammation which will eventually harm everyone if they live long enough.

I have recently experienced incredible ability to add mass, strength and session performance with consistent (and now long-term) LCHF nutrition. I have finally achieved this state by limiting carbs to less than 25 grams per day and meticulously regulating protein to less than 20% of my daily feed (which happens to be 24 hour IM). As we pursue improved nutrition we CANNOT replace carbs with protein.

I did "discover" a "Secret Weapon" food that I will be glad to PM anyone venturing on a LCHF nutrition.

Cheers in Health, Nutrition, Lifestyle, Attainment ...

Translation of Grants Boast

To reduce inflammation that may lead to atherosclerosis, one may wish to consider the following diet suggestions:

Eat: Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables growing above ground and natural fats (like almonds and even butter). Spinach is a healthy vegetable.

Avoid: Sugar and starchy foods (like bread, pasta, rice, beans and potatoes).

Eat when you?re hungry but stop when you?re satisfied. Don't eat because you are bored.

Drink: water, coffee, unsweetened tea.
Avoid sugary drinks like pop, juice and alcohol.

Avoiding inflammation may be a smart thing, even if Grant takes credit for the suggestion. I

You do not need to count calories or weigh your food. Low-fat products are not a must, but it should be the right fats that one consumes.

So what happens when at home you actually have to bend over to pick up a box or something that requires you to exert you muscles in a non -static hold position? You call the butler? Oh Jennings my good man, can you fetch me that box? I certainly don't want to outroad my back!!

This is one area i do agree with Grant.
