"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.

I hope he has learned his lesson and stays off PED's, does cardio and eats a plant based diet.

Why plant based?

Because his prior eating habits contributed to his heart failure, plant based gives him the best shot at not having to go thru that again.

Eating his vegetables wouldn't have hurt but it would not have eliminated his poor genetics for heart health. Supposedly his mother's side of the family all died from heart problems.

explain exactly what plant based means....I ask because I have known a few vegetarians with high cholesteral and were overweight....one died of breast cancer in her 40s and another had heart issues......I love fruit and veggies, but I also love my meat too

thx

A person can eat a horrible 'vegetarian" diet that excludes animal food but it is full of unhealthy junk. According to the Harvard Medical School newsletter a person can reduce their risk of ischemic heart disease by 29% by following a healthy plant based diet.

Maybe ... and maybe not. It depends on that person. Fletcher had a family history of heart disease ... no matter how much broccoli he ate it wouldn't have changed the bad hand he was dealt in genetics.

Too bad it isn't that easy ...

But why risk having "high blood pressure" even if it's individual? I certainly wouldn't risk it and would take meds for it to get it to around 120/80 if nothing else worked. Fortunately for me, my blood pressure is around 110/60 usually...sometimes even lower but I am pretty lean and I think that has a lot to do with it as does the cardio and CTF weight training.

But I wanted to say it can depend on how you handle your genetics in regards to heart disease. I have heart disease on my father's side of the family.

My father had a heart attack at 57, but after that lived healthy until 94 before dying of a sudden massive stroke. He changed his diet (cut out junk - his trigs were 400 at the time of the heart attack which is very high) and ate clean (fruits, veg, lean proteins, whole grains - trigs dropped well below 100) and (cardio) exercised the rest of his life after his heart attack.

My half brother (his other son) had a heart attack (went into cardiac arrest twice at the time) around 50 but was a smoker. He quit after that and he's been fine and is in his low 70s and also watches what he eats (similarly as my dad).

My other half brother (dad's other son) had two heart attacks: one at 43 which was massive need a quadruple bypass and then died of a second heart attack at 55. Evidently he never did all of the things his cardiologist wanted him to do after his first heart attack.

My dad's brother needed a bypass and had a heart aneurysm discovered in his mid 80s...lived "healthy" his entire life (other than being a professional boxer in his youth taking some beatings no doubt), so not much he was able to do but lived to be 90.

My grandfather (dad's father) had a heart attack (main neck artery blocked) but drank excessively for years and ate whatever - quit all of that - ended up living into his late 80s.

What I am getting is, I doubt any of them would have lived that long without lifestyle changes. Also, their heart disease would have likely been prevented (except for my uncle) as well given they had no problems after their heart attack and living pretty long.

Needless to say, I watch ALL of my numbers (including some numbers rarely discussed such as C-Reactive Protein) really well and try to do everything I can to minimize my risk including keeping stress under control (as much as I can) and getting sufficient sleep and getting some life pleasure as much as I can.
