"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."

He's actually coaching Irma on how to be a more efficient storm:

* Keep her eye as focused as possible

* Avoid Outwinding

* Make Impact and then go away (out into the Atlantic), not to return for years and years.

For some reason this reminds me of a story when I was young. I was about 15 ? And we were going to the Mr Olympia in NY where Sergio beat a young Arnold. We got a hotel room practically right across the street from the contest. Many other body builders were staying in that building. When we carted our luggage into the lobby I struggled to bring my two big dumbells in with me because I didn't want to miss a workout. I kept getting these funny looks from some of the fellows and it wasn't until much later that I realized how stupid I looked. Here's this goofy skinny kid lugging these big weights up to his room to keep in shape. A few days much less weeks missed here and there wasn't going to make any difference .

Very glad to hear you're OK, and best wishes in the clean up.

entsminger: What a great story, and well told too!

Where was was that show? What was the venue like? Could you see the contestants clearly? Was anybody else even close to the condition of Sergio and Arnold? Were you able to meet either of them?

I have read that Sergio was very nice and simply unbelievable when you saw him in person.

Did everybody else in the show assume they were fighting for third place, because of the dominance of Sergio and Arnold?

I can't remember which Olympia it was but nobody but us seemed to know who Arnold was. We were walking around the street before the show and several body builders were standing around with crowds of people talking to them but here stood Arnold with his suitcase in hand standing there like he looked In Red Heat and no one paid any attention to him. We went up and spoke to him and he seemed excited that someone had actually noticed him and he signed a picture I had of him.
After the show we had to take the subway somewhere and it looked like a car King Kong had smashed up, ha ha, and there sat this huge guy hunkered over with his gym bag, looked like Albert Beckles ? and no one gave him a second thought. I was like wow, look at this giant guy sitting right here next to us taking this crummy sub way car and how odd that seemed.

The only time sergio beat arnie was the 1969 olympia. It was held at the Brooklyn academy of music. I think they were the only 2 competitors. In 1968 there was only 1 competitor...

well I am back and I am back in black,

after 2 weeks of 16 hrs a day with no days off and eating like shit I am ready to get back in the gym. did not do any type of workout, so it was a good layoff.

I think I am gonna start with a 5 or 6 day split, work each muscle 2x/week, one set to almost failure to try to get some conditioning back, use more different angles to each muscle.

Watch your intensity on that approach --- it's easier to HIT a wall than you think. I tried it a few years back and was dick-in-the-dirt before a month was up.

Pick maybe one exercise per workout (or every other workout) where you go to positive failure*.
(*Last rep in good form style, not AJ-gun-to-your-head style!)

yeah, I was thinking about that...not sure I can pull back the intensity

I will either perform full body 2x/week or 3way split (each bodypart 1x/week)

thx for the reminder simon
