"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."

British Columbia, CAN

Nautilus were advertising among other things a "Contracted Position" curling bar and a "Contracted Position" curling bench, the prices were $65 and $95 respectively. Does anyone have a photo of either of these?

Interestingly Nautilus were also selling spiral cams in the same ad for home use, price $85.

Did you actually see these ads or were you told about them? I have some early IronMan magazines so I'll look.

All of the ads from Nautilus in Ironman Magazine from the 70s are available for viewing. They are in arthurjonesexercise.com.

The ads then were alot more informative than now.

I don't believe AJ ever made the curling bar or the contracted position curling bench. They were designed only in his head. What he had in mind on the curling bench was a devise where you could lie face down, with your arms parallel to your torso with a restraint of some type keeping your elbows back and in line with your shoulders. Then, with your elbows bent to 90 degrees you'd do the top half of a normal curl, but with an increasing resistance against gravity.

AJ described briefly doing an exercise like that in Bulletin No. 1.

I love looking at those old machine photos where the pullovers have those giant spider cams and such and the early omni's etc.Those would be great for some kind of exercise machine museum.

He did sell special pull down bars with bycle handle bars on the end which had the palms facing toward your head if you held it correctly for pulldowns behind the neck with Peter Caputo demonstrating. I am pretty sure he sold individual cams all by themselves for a while but I am not 100% sure. I'll check if I get a chance.

Do you mean the torso/arm pull down bar? The funny thing is that many of these machines you will find have the correct bar removed and replaced with a wide grip bar.

Cams were sold separately? That is interesting. I thought the cams had to be made to fit the particular machine and exercise. How could you make s ?generic cam? and where would you put it?? I always thought it was strange that the OME had a cam that was supposed to be proper for dozens of exercises...

Yea I would think the pivot point would be different for almost every application so it wouldn?t make a whole lot of sense to just get a generic cam?? Even so if I had known about them selling individual cams ( and I went to Deland just about that time) I would have bought one! Now if they were aluminum cams they could have drilled the hole anywhere but a spider cam is another story.
