"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'm not sure what to say about this but it seems his contention is that easy gainers gain easy because they are more fast twitch and slow gainers more slow twitch? I don't know if gaining easy is more because or twitch speed or more about muscle belly length? Seems the easy gainers have very long muscle bellies. Fast twitch seems to be more about explosive strength than gains? I don't know??

I think your right. When they took biopsies of powerlifters vs bodybuilders, bodybuilders had larger slow twitch and larger fast twitch, where power lifters only have larger fast twitch. So, fast or slow, both can Grow! (how about that for a poem lol)

There's typically greater growth in the intermediate fibers... very little in slow twitch... they are not meant to grow as it would hamper their endurance capabilities and characteristics.
