"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 think the BNTA is a machine that if not done carefully ( like Desimone might say) can put your joints or appendages in jeopardy . I don?t like a machine or exercise where I have to concentrate hard to keep my arms or shoulders or whatever in perfect alignment else I might get injured.

BNTA????

==Scott==
I'm sorry, I should have said Behind the neck torso arm like 1958 said. I made the mistake I'm always complaining about with using abbreviations instead of writing it out.I'm really losing it.It's the machine with the Moment Arm attachment, ha ha.


I was thinking Bicep, Neck, Tricep, Ass machine, lol

The compound leg is the most intense quad exercise I?ve used.
It really hurts and I can?t use it often as part of a full body workout


===================================

AndyMitch --

I certainly know about the intensity of using the Compound Leg Machine; it's beyond awesome.

What do you mean by "It really hurts..." ?

Hurts In a good way, the deep pain in the quads is brilliant

Top left going clockwise-
We have half a Compound Leg Machine. This is a Generation One Super Leg Extension.
When building and stripping these I G-clamp the cam in position and tie the moment arm hard against the rubber stopper. This gives more of a chance of getting the chain in the right position and stops the cam swinging round and chopping ones fingers off.

To the right of that we have the Time Machine Super Thigh Extension. Rare and extremely built. The Cockroach's and this thing will be the last survivors.

Below that Generation One Leg Extension aluminium cam. Sweetest movement of them all. This one is the first out the Virginia Plant- LEXXXXV00001.

Left of that - Time Machine Leg Extension. Large Sprocket at the knees.
Stacking this one you have to build the whole stack up outside the machine then start packing and wedging the whole lot up and eventually the top of the rods will enter the holes in the top of the frame. Then it's a case of carefully manoeuvring the whole lot into position. The normal rod retainer plate is on the underside of the stack and not on the top of the rods as you would expect.


Awesome
What about in terms of intensity of work on these, what difference if any, the spider cam just looks damn mean and aggressive



Very good question Andy.

I wish I could differentiate between them on the strength curve and give you a rating on each one but I cannot.

The largest distance from the fulcrum point to the extremity of the cam all give the big delivery on the last quarter of the range of motion before full contraction of the quads. They are all very good at what they do.

But what about the method of doing it ?

I use various strategies here is just two.

4x10 but each rep has a 5 second hold in the contracted position.

Another favourite is 4x20 same weight for each of the four sets.
Set 1 20 reps not to failure.
Set 2 failing in and around 17-18 then do the reps to make the number up to 20.
Set 3 this time failure is coming in and around 14 then failure again in and around 17 then go again to get the 20.Set 4 now failing in and around 10 and then maybe a 4 and a 3 and a 2 and a 1 to get to the 20. Quads are absolutely blasted at this stage then its time to move onto the compound movements.
