"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."

Hi everyone, I just finish the beginner programe of that book now I m on the 1 week off before starting the intermediate programe. Before doing the fullbody HIT workout, I was doing split routine with 3 set of 8 rep for each muscles around 3 time a week. The 2 first set where lighter (warm up) and the last set was done to near faillure . Now than I m on the HIT fullbody, I still see results ,maybe less but it seem that I did not gain boddy weigth in those 24 weeks and feel tired every day.
SO My question, did I should continue at the beginning of the intermediate programe or I should skip to near the end of the intermediate programe?
I don't have enough information about you to supply an intelligent answer. But from what you've said, I'd reduce your times per week from three to two . . . and be sure and go to failure on most exercises. Also, training with a partner will probably help.
I m 38 , works 40h a week, sleep 7h to 7h30 every nigth
Weigth 168 pounds with 7% boddy fat ( mesured with a skindex and my biceps size contracted vs relax is around 1.5 inchs)
No supplements other than creatine.
Bench 210 to 220 lbs
Leg press 400lbs
Calf raise 310lbs
Pullover over 100lbs
Behind the back cable curl 60lbs
Tricep rope 85lbs
60sec chin up
Shrug 310 lbs
Shoulder press 160lbs
All those weigths are what I train to faillure for 8 to 15 reps and 20 reps for the legs,
So I jump on the scale and to my suprise I lost 5 more pounds for a total of 10pounds from when I stop the creatine. Maybe I don t eat enougth or it is been the stress 🙄.
In the first programe of the advance training programe, there is exercises that the last time I do them was 7 weeks ago. So I Try to do the same weigth as before and I feel weaker even I need to load less weigth than before. Does 6 to 7 week too much rest between some exercise or is it normal to load 10 to 20% less weigth after a layoff of 6 week?
