"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."

- I've also been having a bit of soreness in one hip that was starting to become chronic. I just dropped the hip machines (adductor and abductor) to see if this changed anything. Too soon to tell


When I had access to Nautilus machines there were three machines that always caused me hip and back issues. The hip abduction and adduction machines and the duo hip and back. I don?t know why exactly, but I do know when I quit using them the pain went away.

I hope it works out that way for me.

I've found that single joint/isolation exercises are very much a mixed bag. Some exercises and machines work very well. But others eventually seem to cause joint issues, especially when I start to push the loads up, and really start to focus on reaching failure.

Three machines that bothered me out of all the ones I've tried / used.

The 'Glute Thrust' as I see others refer to it here , both the Hammer and the Cybex feel good as I use it , but in a few workouts my right knee would get sore. Only would happen when this exercise was in my workout and as soon as it's taken out of the routine , the knee is back to normal.

The Hammer Iso-Lateral Leg Extension hurt my knees while using it when no other leg extensions ever did. Can't figure out why because as soon as you touch the weight, it seems to go up by itself. Worst Hammer machine ever put out, IMO.

Any biceps machine I ever tried didn't feel good on my elbows from the first rep, in any position.

For the non-weights day it was up and down a 1000-ft hill, followed by two hill sprints of about 40 yards each. Then crunches with 100 lb DB x 50.
