"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 tried this over the weekend. It was the most soreness I've had in my legs and glutes in a long time. Systemically I felt pretty tired the following day though.

I would like to explore 30/10/30 on some upper body moves for variation.

I guess isometrics are in!

That final exercise, the static body squat was a great capper.

I never thought to do the first exercise that way and Dr Darden is correct in that you don't need a lot weight done in 30/10/30 fashion. Its not a dumbbell deadlift, you have to concentrate on working your legs and keeping good form and feeling it in your legs. I didn't do the whole sequence, just tested that exercise in 30/10/30 fashion.

With my limited equipment I could do a dumbbell squat, hip belt squat, wall sit combo.

All over the Internet, information abounds that traditional pre-exhaustion techniques are ineffective at recruiting additional muscle fiber activity. What is not revealed is this: pre-exhaustion increases products of fatigue, much like blood occlusion techniques.

3 back-to-back exercises that approach 5 minutes will address fatigue, but not muscle recruitment as well.

I prefer my Nautilus leverage leg press with isometrics done at 3 stages much like the stage repetitions in - 1986 Super High Intensity Bodybuilding - where I start at the most advantageous leveraged top position ( a good warm-up ) and the subsequent hold isometrically. Next, lower to middle position for another isometric hold, followed by the bottom third position. Go back up through the previous isometric hold positions. Finish with a long eccentric, as fatigue has lesser effects on eccentric activity. I strive for a continuous 5 minutes of leg press activity. There will be a need to remain seated and for deep breathing.
