"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!!!

Here is how I do the squats


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.
