"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."

Hi gang,

With summer almost upon us, I am reminded of a great quote from Arthur Jones --

"The average weight trainer is just too fat. In fact, the best way for the average trainee to look more muscular this summer is not to GAIN 10 pounds but to LOSE 10 pounds of body fat.

And furthermore, 95% of all weight trainers would be better served by a reduction of 20 pounds instead of ten."

Got to love his directness!

Good training to all!

Great quote Tom. Arthur was right. By losing bodyfat and looking more muscular, you can give the illuson of looking bigger.

Easy for a smoker to say which increases metabolism anywhere from 10-15%...

Anyways...

The figure would probably be more now. However, I don't see what's wrong with a little bit of fat.

I know someone that takes part in bikini competitions. She eats all her meals out of plastic and everything has to be carefully measured out. For what? To have the privilege to get up on stage and be judged? There's no financial gain. If anything if it was considered an investment and you went to a financial adviser they'd say you're bonkers.

Average Al

I can't comment about the average trainer, but I fell into the the trap of confusing bigger with more muscular.

I lost about 20 lbs recently, and look a lot better. To my surprise, I look like I still need to lose at least 10 more lbs. I was carrying a lot more fat than I realized (or was willing to admit).

Fastest way to look like you lost some fat is to get a nice tan.

Have to agree, nothing wrong with a having a little fat, once upon a time it would have increased survival chances.
But, credit to those who can disiplane themselves in a time of abandance and override hormones like leptin.
