"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 don't disparge anyone taking steroids, its their life they can do as they please. Its just the truth in advertising that led many of us to adopt training methods (mostly ghost written for or by good old Uncle Joe) that our unaided bodies couldn't cope with and that were not utilized by the bodybuilder in question to begin with. I understand it was probably hard to come up with a new training routine every month and they had to come up with some new angle on how to bomb and blitz your medial deltoid etc. The muscle mags primary purposes was to sell supplements that didn't work and that the endorser didn't use.

I agree it was a really great book.

the sales pitch of the get big like Boyer did dream is embedded deep in our brain and it still pops up and gets me excited about working out when I see those pictures.

Of course it gets you fired up ... that's the reason guys like Boyer are used to illustrate these books.

What book would sell using pics of an underwear model in a pullover machine or Duo-squat instead of Casey and Ray ? We all knew we couldn't look like those guys but seeing those physiques is what had us pushing ourselves hard 2-3 days a week .... and still does. I see no problem with that at all.

I mentioned this many times but the photo that got me hook, line and sinker into the HIT methods was the one of Tom Platz doing N/O press behind the neck in Darden's High Intensity Bodybuilding book back in the 80's. It was the first image in the book and for me it was like Mike Tyson sucker punched me right there in the bookstore. Dardens fabulous descriptions of those workouts has training hard imbedded in me forever.

If anyone has that pic, it would be great to see it again if you could post it here somewhere. Trying to 'sell' HIT all those years ago to anyone who would half listen to me, found me lending all my Darden HIT books out and never getting them back.

A bookmark permanently sits at page 132 in chapter 14, the examples of the double pre exhaust.

Hams, quads and the whole legs.

And chapter 15 the duo squat routines.

Heavens to Murgatroid that looks like a dangerous position to be in trying to push all that weight.

THANK YOU , Spider !

Yeah, those are the pics ! But what really glued it altogether and made it even more impressive was Darden's superb description of those N/O sets of PBN .... just changed my whole perspective of what training 'hard' was.

The best line in that blow by blow account of Platz's workout was ;

" ... when most guys are ending their set , Tom is just getting started ... "

Wow, what an impression that had on me !

Thirty years later that line still goes through my mind when I'm killing a workout ... it stayed with me forever !

Thanks again for posting them and to
Darden for those great books.

Have been watching Tom's seminars and squat clinics on youtube, he comes away with some great quotes like this one - psychology trumps physiology.

Egad! That is somewhat of an unorthodox method to do BNP; looks more like he is doing a split-method clean & jerk.
