"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.

Just got Els new book and as usually it?s great.

I spent an afternoon with him at his home where he trained me and we discussed his new work.

I?m totally sold on his ideas and use them in my personal training business.

His programs are based on intensity and variation.

I?d suggest adding this to your library.

Rdarby,

I'll check on this for you. What's your location and who did you order the Killing Fat book from?

Received mine yesterday, read the first three chapters today. The bicep fat percent technique gave the same numbers on me as my Tanita.

Coincidentally, one of the things that got me on a strict regimen back in 2008 was that I flexed my bicep and the measurement was exactly the same as not flexing. Now it?s around 0.8 inches difference.

Wow, that minuscule difference of 0.8 inches was enough to get you on a strict regimen?

"==Scott==
Wow, that minuscule difference of 0.8 inches was enough to get you on a strict regimen?"

According to Tanita and now confirmed by Dr. Darden's bicep body fat measurement technique, I went from over 30% body fat to around 18%.

I did not gain much muscle, may be 2 pounds during the 8 or so months I dieted. But I lost enough fat so that now when I flex a bicep there is a measurable difference of about 0.8 inches.

A question for Dr Darden:

One of the book blurbs I saw suggested that the building of muscle mass is a key component of the program. That would clearly be possible, and worthwhile for anyone who had not trained before. However, there are some of us who have some fat to lose despite having strength trained for years. I personally could stand to lose a few more pounds (I'm presently down 27 lbs from my all time high), but I'm pretty sure that I have little to no upside potential for muscle gains, due both to age and training history.

So in the case of someone who isn't going to be able to add much extra muscle, how much would that influence expectations for body fat loss?

My contact in NY said the Amazon.UK dealer was assured that the delay had been corrected. You should have your book in the next 1-2 weeks.

Your overall results will be less, but you still should be able to lose 5-10 pounds of fat efficiently.

Dr Darden, I have ordered your book but wanted to know if the principles can be applied/modified to muscle building. I am already very lean and don't need to lose fat, but need to put on some mass. Thank you.

I just got the new book and have enjoyed reading it. One question. Do you ever recommend split routines? I used your 30-30-30 and 15-15-15 techniques with a three way split and had good success with them. After reading your section on the hormones that are released by eccentrics it made me wonder if a split routine would fail to maximize that process.

Thanks,

David

David,

No, I'm not into split routines. They don't maximize a handful of physiological factors, including eccentric hormone release.

Dr. Darden, after reading your new book, the exercise you list for the back are pulldown....as a lover of the nautilus pullover, can I replace the pulldown with the pullover in the routines listed.
