is one of the most respected and thoughtful High Intensity Strength

use our muscles, we are using them to indeed do “work”.Here in the gym though, as Drew explains, we are using the

Why of Less", Ellington Darden Phd.
I have always admired the writings and teachings of Dr.
Ellington Darden, truly one of the gurus of High Intensity
Strength Training. I met him in 2003 at a High Intensity
Strength Training Conference where we were both speakers. He
spoke about Diet Strategies as I remember and I spoke about
Omega 3 Fats. In this short article from his website he
explains the teachings of Arthur Jones regarding the
philosophy of "More is Not Better" when it comes to High
Intensity Strength Training. This is the basis of our High
Intensity Low Velocity strategy and is worthwhile reading
for all of us.
