"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."

Old video of Dr. Ken training his step son Kevin Tolbert. The old Nautilus Leverage machines are so cool.

Those beyond full-ROM leg presses are NOT to be emulated. Ridiculous.

Not much better on the TX either.

I did really love the set-up of that Incline Press machine!!

I talked to Tolbert on the phone a few years about training. Cool conversation.

Very cool to finally see after reading the steel tip articles for years.
Very cool nautilus set up as well.
I'd be interested to know how frequently even Kevin could train in the way demonstrated in the vid. I couldn't see anyone training like that more than once a week?. I know the steel tip articles always said 2-3 x a week, I find that hard to believe at that level of intensity?.

Would you mind sharing any details of that conversation?
Dr Ken is a big influence and the descriptions of Kevin Tolbert's training were/are a big motivator..

Not good! The leg presses were violently bounced off the rubber bumpers and on most reps he went all the way to knee hypertension.Danger!

I believe Kevin Tolbert is suffering some issues today due to the way he trained. Personnally, prefer to never lockout and never bounce out of the bottom. For sure he was a hell of a strong guy. I heard something claimed about a 600x30 squat. Can't verifty the source or factuality.

A while back I believe someone on this board knew Kevin and spoke with him about his past HIT training.
He said Kevin stated he was paying the price for the routines he used. I assume he trains differently now days.
Would also like to hear more about that conservation.
Perhaps it is the same person who commented earlier on this post.

Great, thanks for posting! I thought it was great when the Dr Ken workout footage was put on You Tube, this is another great. Not watched yet but can't believe there is footage like this.

I am pretty sure I read some of that Kevin Tolbert interview on this forum, or if not the interview, more details on it. Could be wrong, it was quite a while back.

By the way, not sure I agree with locking out in an exercise being bad for the joints.

Yes, he told me he is paying a price today. He also said he squatted that much (or whatever that number was).

When I talked to Tolbert a few years ago, he told me he thought HIT was still the best way to train. He was also a fan of SuperSlow. He thought full body, 2-3 days a week was the way to go. Something like 6-8 basic moves, etc.

He was U of M strength coach at the time (not sure if he still is) and told me there was no way training those athletes 2-3 days a week would fly around there. Hence, they had to train differently and more often.

Cool guy...very open about things.

definitely not how to train {apply HIT} however one must except this was standard HIT advice at the time.
The further passage of time has brought us new/improved applications of HIT.
Ken and Kevin were trail blazers, the shoulders of Giants we stand on today.
