"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.

There is a much easier way... get a metal pipe and attach an elbow and short pipe on each end. Then pick up the pipe. Push with one arm and resist with the other creating slight movement. Do the same with a pull movement.
It is not much different then the dynamic tension exercises in the magazines of my youth promoted by Charles Atlas. Upper body is easy to accomplish. Legs take a bit more creativity.
I saw this on you tube. There is another way. There was an article in Iron Man magazine in the 1970's. The man's name Dymek. It was a floor pulley with a cable attached to two handles. Then the author did curls with one hand resisting the other. My father had a mail order course from the 1950's. It was Mike Marvel Dynamic Tension. One arm resisting the other.
Only muscles I do this with are biceps and triceps because it so easy to do.
After triceps I put a my towel over the end of a barbell that's racked on a bench and do press downs , one arm against the other for a little bit.
Doesn't take much as it's a 'finisher' after the real workout ... but it's a killer when your muscles are already spent.
Same for biceps , just finding a lower bar / rack to run the towel on. I guess you could do it for lateral raises holding a towel but never tried it.
