"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."

Exercise order


Regarding exercise order should I 1) block together all lower body then all upper body ie row/press/pulldown/overhead then leg press/curl/extension OR 2) should I alternate upper and lower ie row, leg extension/press, chest press, leg curls, etc.?

Option two seems like it would allow you to be the freshest going into each exercise. Then again maybe it is beneficial to really fry one half of your body before moving to the other end?

I think the true HIT/Jonesian way was neither. You start with the largest and work to the smallest. Trunk/hips/thighs/back/chest/shoulders/upper arms (triceps first)/calves/neck/forearms.

I suspect it really doesn't matter because people have made great gains on all varieties of splits....
