"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.

Chucked in a few oddish lifts today, you can see them here:

Good stuff! Doing what you enjoy.

I got nervous about the overhead press though. Might sound stupid but perhaps a hard hat? Don't want to lecture a fellow grown man but I think you get my point. Steel toecaps as well. I remember some strongman having his big toe amputated from dropping an atlas stone on his foot.


Train safe!


All the best!!!

p.s. Was I the only person to observe Mariusz Pudianowski and Greg Kovacs pop up after each video? Thought it was you!!!


I think Adidas do a steel toe capped trainer.

=Scott==
Be careful with those steel toed shoes, I?ve heard of a guy wearing a steel toed boot having a huge weight crash on his foot and the edge of the steel toe part almost cut his foot in half.

I guess then it depends on what your're lifting/how heavy and then weigh up the risks accordingly. Titanium cappped boots are available too apparently.


I once dropped a solid butcher's chopping board on my foot. No steel toe caps there. No almost severed foot either.

But I did break my foot and toe... Great days.


Luckily it wasn't a frozen cow... LOL!!!

Excellent. I will have to figure out a setup for this. Imagine I?ll be clumsy at first.

Thank you. I don't think you need anything more than a rope, chain, strap etc attached at a suitable height at one end. You could probably loop something round a door handle if you make a point of pulling as little as possible with your hand which is what you should ideally be doing anyway. I did try by just holding on to a door frame etc but prefer the chain with either a handle or towel attached or even just the chain itself.

I think it is one of those exercises best suited to non lockout, great technique and feel the muscle working than adding extra weight. I do occasionally but really, if I can knock out 3-4 good sets of 10-12, then it is going to fry my legs.

Well not frozen maybe but a carcass... I assume you worked in a butcher's shop.

Recen Steve Justa inspired workout.

One of my rocks with a 10kg plate taped to it and 20kg kettlebell suspended by chains. Not so heavy weight wise but very awkward with the center of gravity at the front.
The rock hit me in the face which may explain the Popeye expression.

Same workout I was doing partial rep trap bar deadlifts. I had to tape weightz on to stop then falling off the end (no room for collars and no larger plates). After getting 10 I wanted more weight, so attached my kettlebell with chains which I thought was pretty clever.
460 pounds, could not even budge it hahaha.

Love it, seen Eric Bugenhagen doing the same with the kettlebell in a recent video. Good idea:)

THESE ACTS ARE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS & FOOLISH, and SHOULD NOT BE ATTEMPTED nor ENCOURAGED

Well thanks for your concern Grant. I don't plan on doing this soft of thing regularly, perhaps the odd one very infrequently.
However, not as dangerous as you make out, the weight was in front of me and I always had the ability to dump it in front of me if I got into difficulty (but then I did bang my forehead on the way up).

As for the deadlift, is a partial deadlift really that dangerous? I once did 506 pounds though from a slightlu higher starting position. The thing is, a paftial allows yku to be in an incredibly good starting position with minimal bending at the back and a good, solid grip.

Grant, it's all well and good to chastise me, would you do the same to rock climbers, Formula One drivers, boxers, cyclists etc? All dangerous.

It's good that you can hold a heavy machine in a static position withoug straining for X number of seconds, Grant, but will it help you lift something heavy in a real life situation?

Theres little risk with partial TBDLs...

Grant,

You just can't man up can you?

If you were as strong and athletic as you claim these lifts would not represent a problem or a hazard for you. Stick to your imaginary no movement exercising and leave the men alone.

I go through phases where I like to do things like this, usually after reading Steve Justa or watching

https://instagram.com/...d=1crsxuby9ruym

But I do believe in useable strength and I like to try lifting unusual things or lifting in unusual ways
I am going back to more normal things for a while now, though I will still do things like shovel lifts etc.
