"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."

Daughter here. Still waiting on results

Bariann:

Sincere condolences from a fan of your father.

How considerate and candid of you to post here despite your bereavement.

I believe most here have a genuine and caring interest in what happened to one of our own. While we all must pass, the premature and unexpected departure of someone who seemed like the indestructible man - that is what your Father seemed to me, at least - was a sorrowful shock.

I never had the pleasure of meeting your Father in the flesh but did exchange a precious few correspondences with him. He was generous and helpful.

Again, THANK YOU.

With deepest sympathy to you and your family.


A very nice reply.

And completely agree

Re: the Dr Ken video...
I wound up here after looking for some Dr. Ken info. I already own a library of his stuff...subscripts to Hardgainer, MILO, back issues of PLUSA, Steel Tip, HIT Newsletter, etc. Sometimes it is just easier to Google something and hope for the best instead of ransacking or bookshelf. There are certain movies that when you happen upon them on TV or even a streaming service you can not resist watching them even if you have seen them many times. Goodfellas is one of those for me. Another is the Dr. Ken tape. I?ve been watching that one for about 20 years. When it was made he was an old middle aged guy with graying hair. Now I?m 3 years older than he was then. I love watching him train, listening to his tour of the garage, his commentary with Jack. I met him once when I visited Iron Island. He left a big impression on me. The original purpose of his tape was to raise money for a youth program in NY. Over the years there has been some controversy online, with some people claiming the workout was fake, or staged, with fake plates. For a long time the only available clips were tiny RealVideo or QuickTime files, way before YouTube. These were often ripped from the version of the tape with the audio edited to mask the copyrighted doo-wop music Ken was playing in his garage. I had been watching the full version VHS on a large TV set for years; there was no question the plates were real. It was straightforward; he loaded up a barbell and lifted those weights listed above, and to failure. Then, taking only enough time to change plates, spit and blow snot on the floor, gasp and pant and sometimes lie on the floor, he moved to the next thing. Sometimes I engaged in arguments on lifting boards regarding this...and my thought was if those naysayers could just see the tape I watched there would be no argument. But I never made a copy of the tape or uploaded it because when it was made it was for a charity, and I didn?t feel I had the right. Also I thought Ken himself didn?t give a shit about what anyone thought and would have just said F those guys!
So now someone has put the original on YouTube and I just found myself watching it all over again...this shit just never gets old.

Great post. It was great to see the video on You Tube, I had only seen the set of squate previously. Needless to say I will be wat hin it many times over.
I have not been on this forum much lately, but good to see Dr Ken is still being discussed, he will never really be truly gone.

Here?s a somewhat odd but also very cool clip I found of Dr Ken a few years back. It was made at the same time a photo essay about him was being shot. I?m guessing 5 to 10 years ago.

Nice. Remember seeing that a few years ago too. Ken had little size then but no doubt at all a veru wiry, strong guy.

I bought a compound leg for Dr.Ken. He and his friend help us break it down and put it in a pickup truck.

That was like a workout itself. More so after he showed me how to use it hit style.

He did have a somewhat flat chest and skinny arms, but he still rolled up that skillet pretty fast. Also his upper back was still very impressive.
