"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."

Good find there. I would really hope he comments to say more about how it has done for him at his level. He's a bodybuilder that has tried just about everything under the sun routine and technique wise. And at his level if he can get even 1% better from 30-10-30 that would be a huge thing.

Interesting - must be reading Dr.D.

He bangs out the 10 easier than I do. I just barely get the 10 once I figure the correct weight. Then the 30 second negative may not be a full 30 seconds.. depending on the exercise used. Leg press may be impossible to get the final 30 seconds. I use a MedX leg press and the negative is strong and the pain is intense.

One thing I find with the 30-10-30 is that it was a lot of fun and great pump the first 2-3 workouts. Then it gets pretty tough and demanding. Especially LP- start dreading it.

I did it for about 4 weeks ands stopped. I just did leg extension and leg curl using the method today and it felt great. Very stimulated. Also, much easier on the joints.

Has anyone else been using the method for an extended time?

Thanks,
Ron

Dr. Darden?

Something I just thought about..
In your article on T-Nation, you said,
"The idea is always to work to momentary muscular fatigue on the in-between positive-negative repetitions"

But, if a person is going to get the load all the way 'up' for that last negative, they must be not going all the way to failure, otherwise you'd need a training partner to help you finish the last actual failed rep so you could do the last 30 second negative. So the 10 regular reps in the middle then are actually 'almost failure' right? Like do that last full rep you can, then do the last 30 second negative?

Yes, you are right in your reasoning: "almost to failure."

I love 30/10/30. what I do is partial reps at the top of the "last rep". that makes the last 30 all that harder.
