Inside this Book – A 1 What Your Personal Trainer Forgot to Tell You A generation ago, the idea that strength training was actually good for you—that it offered any health benefits, that it helped people live longer, that it did anything be- sides give you bigger muscles to flex or stronger muscles to push people around with—seemed absurd. Kenneth Cooper, **, wrote this in Aerobics, his 1968 bestseller: “If it’s muscles or a body beautiful, you’ll get it from weight lifting or calisthenics, but not much more….If it’s the overall health of your body you’re interested in, [strength training] won’t do it for you….Aerobic exercises are the only ones that will.” You may think, “Well, of course he’d say that. He had a book to sell.” And he sold a lot of books. He used some of the money to build the Cooper Institute for Aerobics Research in Dallas, the purpose of which was to promote… bodybuilding. Sorry, just wanted to see if you were paying attention. Of course, the purpose of his center in Dallas was to encourage a type of endurance exercise he had dubbed “aerobics.”
Inside this book –The New Rules of Lifting PDF Book by Lou Schuler – 2 Introducing the Big Six I’m going to make a horrible confession about my own ignorance. When I conceived this book, I had a brilliant premise: I would take every exercise in the gym and look at it in terms of its possible role in human movement. The only good exercises would be those that mimicked important hominid actions—jumping, running, pushing, pulling. I wanted my list to come down to just five or six movements, and then build the entire book from there. So, convinced of my genius in being the first to come up with this idea, I worked on it for weeks. Finally, I e-mailed Alwyn with my list and my idea that the most useful movements also build the most muscle mass. Alwyn wrote back a short e-mail (I think the man is incapable of being long-winded), saying, “Well, in that case we should go with squat, bend (deadlift), lunge, push, pull, twist. That’s according to Schmidt’s theory of human movement.” In a later, equally short e-mail, Alwyn mentioned the seventh movement, walking or running, which doesn’t necessarily have to be trained with gym exercises, provided you’re doing some of that outside the gym.
