"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.

Not sure how many of you ate familiar with Ian Duckett. Ian is a bit of a legend, having British, European and World Champion titles under his belt. He's natural for life and has also compete in powerlifting, though he is currently probably beat known as a trainer and author. Now over 50, Ian still trains hard and eats as clean as ever, and looks in great shape.
Not sure of his current routine, but he has certainly made good progress in the past using full body, basic routines with heavy weight. Back when I used to work in the Weider shop in Leeds, Ian was a regular and friend of the boss. He would let me train at his gym free of charge and I had some great workouts there. His site, Old, But Strong is well worth a look. Here are a couple of pics from his site that I hope he doesn't mind me showing here in his honour.

Great guy!! Loved the "judgement day" HIT video he did, and his articles in Musclemag back in the 90s. I really felt for him over the loss of his wife at such a young age, but hes a trooper and has found the strength to do positive things since.

I have a copied dvd of Ian doing a few really brutal full body Hit workouts from a few years back. From what I've read of his, he was a staunch Hit trainer for years and now trains instinctively. I also recall reading articles of his in the old Hardgainer magazine.

Yes I have read Ian's training and diet information for many years, really good stuff. I remember reading about him using giant sets and super sets etc. when he went to the U.S to train with Robby Robinson? He looks awesome now, super ripped.

Terrific bloke. Ian came to visit me a year or so ago , we got along really well. It was really refreshing to spend quality time with someone so likeminded.
Presently he is in terrific shape for a guest posing spot.

Yes, he is a good bloke.His wife was nice too, I was shocked when I heard some time back... The Robby Robinson article was very good too. I don't often buy training books, but am going to get the book, Old But Strong soon.

Ian has invited me several times to train with him , even try a DVD but our diaries have never coincided. I did have a friend of mine make him a hack squat machine that he purchased as he liked the look of mine. Ian is a real class act and someone who I can relate to lots ... there is not many of those around.

Imagine how big he would be (and better, healthier he would look) at 15% body fat! Props to him for the muscle and the conditioning, but that looks pretty disgusting. Also, with zero effective fat reserves, that would be a useless body in an emergency.

I think the general idea behind his wqy of eating is if you work hard and eat clean, a good sensible diet, you are going to look like the product of your labour.
I think he has a damn good point. If you follow that mentality, it just makes sense that your body would have little resource left to store bodyfat. Does not mean I do this myself, though of course, I should...

Disgusting - a bit strong maybe, but your opinion. I think it looks pretty cool, though it does seem to be at the expense of some of his mass, for example the side delta appear to have taken a big hit. But, I have a lot of respect for a ripped bodybuilder, a shredded arm in a T-shirt looks impressive, even if there is not too much muscle mass like in the case of a climber maybe (there used to be a guy like tat in one of the gyms I trained at). I prefer that to someone with just a big, relatively shapeless arm.
