"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 a fan of upright rows (shoulder impingement issues potentially, strains, etc.). However, if I did them, I would use dumbbells, natural grip, and perhaps only bottom half of range of motion and a relatively lighter weight (20-30 RM max).

A kettlebell works well for upright rows!
I like a light KB for these, and performed very slowly
I finish in the bottom position with JReps

@Nwlifter,

Experimentation with slow upright rows with a biceps curl bar led to a pain-free technique to replace hammer curls for the wrists. Do not cause shoulder impingement with an exaggerated range of movement. Do not let elbows exceed parallel to the floor. The brachioradialis (largest wrist muscle) is torched by this compound movement. Even statics
work well with this advanced technique.


I sometimes do this with a rope on the cable machine, slight hold at the top, I indeed the brachioradialis are smoked doesn't cause my bad shoulder any issues.

Neck isometrics

Simple
Brief, hard and infrequent

The neck has lots of slow twitch fibers
Does the neck every rest?
Only sleeping in a prone position

Lots of redundant neck muscles functions
Due to safety and previous injuries, I do (YMMV)
Extensions and flexions only
I do not participate in contact sports.
I wear 22 inch fitted dress shirts.
nuff said!
I do resistance bands holds for up to 5 minutes isometrically in neutral positions only.
No need for more than once weekly or better yet once every 2 weeks. 22 inch shirts are hard to come by and expensive.
I loop one end of a jump RB around the lowered chin bar on my Nautilus OME.

The other end of the RB is looped around my head. I use an ACE bandage for padding. I also hold the RB in place with hand gripping during the isometric hold. I slowly move away from the OME while increasing tension on the head. It can get pretty exhausting on the neck during RB moving statics. Slowly decrease tension on the RB when exiting exercise. Flexion and extension, you are done.
I ordered a Monster blue band for extensions (stronger).

No, but that would be a helluva slingshot assist into a pullup.

What is the trainee trying to accomplish with this?

Preinternet forum one didnt need forum police since we basically could only read/listen to books or sometimes voice. We,d spend time in gyms and living.

Now we cann't even read the experts since they are drowned off by the many folks such as on this very thread.

men have three choices today. One: follow Dr El and look and feel good with a good food plan ... Two: look too thin and weak and old ... 3) look fat and think that where strong. what's your choices ?

Choices 2 and 3; you can diet and exercise or you can eat and train...the two have their place
