"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.

Little Jigsaw Pieces for Results

Bodybuilding is simple. Forget all of the youtube b*ll*cks. In it?s simplest and biggest picture all you need to do is:

1. Stimulate muscle to grow
2. Provide adequate nutrition to support the stimulation
3. Allow adequate rest so that you can recover and your body can use the nutrition
4. Drink plenty of water to support all of the above

HOWEVER? and it is a relatively BIG however? there are lots of little jigsaw pieces that fit into this bigger picture

1. The stimulation has to be at a level that is intense enough to cause the muscle to need to grow (respond) to accommodate the demand
2. Nutrition has to be balanced and consumed at reasonably regular intervals so that nutrients are continuously available
3. Rest has to be sound to be able to help manage internal and external stresses and long enough for all the body processes to take place
4. Water has to be continuously supplied ? and ?plenty? often means around 5 litres a day

Each one of these pieces is worthy of it?s own research and investigation. Don?t neglect any of them. If you do ? progress will be slow.

You HAVE to put the work in on all aspects of your strength training!

Some solid advice there, however, I'm just not so sure about the water intake. More and more evidence is emerging about the benefits of increasing salt intake and surely such a high amount of water daily would result is significant loss of electrolytes no?

I suppose it depends on how much water, but assuming one is eating throughout the day I would think they would be fine.

I can't drink that much, even in the Summer... I would live in the bathroom. However, that's me. As for exercise, intensity can only be 100%, and so... when you're already there and nothing is happening one must consider the total demands of the training stimulus and not depend solely on pushing the limits in effort and hoping/expecting the best. It doesn't work that way, as most on this forum would contest.

wow that's a lot of water...
I guess if a person lives in the desert maybe and are sweating all day.
I probably drink 2 liters of liquid a day, total, water, coffee and anything else.
