About this course

No creator should get too much credit...because all creators carry a lot of debt.

Many resources were studied over the past 30 + years to assist in putting this program together. If you want to dive deeper into the concepts presented throughout this program, I suggest checking out the following material. I personally owe a big debt of gratitude to these authors, physicians, trainers, and innovators:

  1. Nautilus Bulletin #1 and Nautilus Bulletin #2 - Arthur JonesGroundbreaking in the early 1970s and just as interesting today, these free PDFs are essential reading for those interested in the history of high intensity strength training, as well as the core concepts involved.
  2. Body By Science - Doug McGuff, M.D. and John LittleFirst published in 2009, this book presented the ideas of high intensity strength training to a newer audience -- within the context of modern day exercise science. Also check out 2019's The Time Saver's Workout by John Little.
  3. The Area Under The Curve: How Resistance Exercise Will Prevent Disease, Extend Lifespan, Cure Cancer, Save The Economy, And Make Humanity Great Again - Doug McGuff, M.D.This free video lecture on Youtube was a presentation given by Dr. McGuff at the Florida Institution For Machine Learning and Human Cognition in 2019. Be sure to read the Youtube comments!
  4.   Congruent Exercise - Bill DeSimoneThis 2011 book is subtitled, 'How To Make Weight Training Easier On Your Joints,' and illustrates how common strength training exercises can be made safer to protect your joints and encourage life-long participation.
  5. Killing Fat -- Ellington Darden, Ph.D.Darden has published many fitness and nutrition books over the past 40 years, and this is his latest publication in 2019. I've used 6-week Darden programs with clients in the past with great success. 
  6. Bodyweight High Intensity Training eBook Bundle -- Drew BayeThis three-book collection drills deep into the particulars of creating effective home based fitness results with minimal equipment needed. 
  7. Various Publications -- Ken HutchinsKen Hutchins was the innovator behind the Superslow exercise protocol and strength training machines. To really understand exercise, I recommend reading anything he has written on the topic.
