Hey John

I was wondering what kinds of exercises you were doing around the time this photo was taken? For example were you doing a mixtureof Iso's, DVR's, Push-ups etc? Were you training daily?

Your arms and shoulders here look awesome! The kind of look I would love! (as I'm sure my wife would too haha):

Hello kenpopaul,

Thank you for your kind words.

At the time the photo was taken in 2002, I was performing the exercises straight out of Charles Atlas's Dynamic Tension System that I had altered and intensified in creating the Transformetrics Exercise System. At that time I was performing high volume on a daily basis. My results had been stellar BUT they are far greater now.

Later today I will be placing the cover for "Living Strength: Power Secrets From the Fountain of Youth-The Nutritional Edge" for an advanced peek. As you will see on the new cover that was shot a week ago on Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 my muscles have a greater density now at age 67 than they did when I was just a kid of 50. As a result of Power Belt Isometrics combined with my own Transformetrics Iso-Dynamic Training System I have now hit my prime and IT ALL relates to THE NUTRITIONAL EDGE due to the fact that Vince Gironda was right...85% of your results will be determined by the food you consume and only 15% by the Ultra Intense Power Belt Isometrics . As relates to the exercises they have to be short but Ultra Intense. Never spend more than 45 minutes for an entire workout. Anything more is catabolic rather than anabolic. A perfect example of catabolic is long duration cardio exercise that burns off testosterone and muscle mass and sets a man up for becoming a skinny fat guy. NEVER do long slow cardio to get ripped. it's a complete waste of time even for your heart. Instead, do High-Intensity Intervals (HIIT) that are short in duration but deliver extraordinary results such as a weight vest bench stepping routine. Literally unreal in terms of intensity. That will give your legs great shape and power while sculpting legs, hips, & waistline. In other words, you'll look muscular where YOU should be muscular and slim where you should be slim. When asked how much time for a cardio workout the answer is simple, if you can last more than 7 Minutes you aren't working hard enough but try to keep it under 5 minutes.

Now, as relates to my strength: 2-Days each week my Atlas III, II,& I Push-Ups are each done for 3 X 8 to 12 reps with a 52-pound Weight Vest. 2-days Atlas III, II, & I are performed with 42-pounds 3 X 15 to 20 reps. 2-days each week my Atlas III, II, & I are performed for 3 X 3 to 5 reps with a 77.7-pound weight vest. I always perform them III, II, & I in that order just as you'll see on the video (the only reason for showing you on video is so that everyone will see what constitutes full range). This I do at a bodyweight of 165 pounds. The other exercises I do are R-O-M for 7 reps each and power Belt Isometrics for every muscle group. I am stronger pound for pound at 165 pounds at age 67 than I have ever been and part of the reason is due to my consumption of Desiccated Liver tablets as recommended in Nutritional Edge (as per Vince Gironda). They taste as though they have been recycled through a horse but the results are worth the effort. I take 12 to 24 DL tablets daily, it contains a growth factor as well as anti-estrogen factors that will help keep testosterone naturally jacked. Look for the cover later today.

---John Peterson

P.S. For the man that asked, I have never done 36 eggs daily as Vince Gironda recommended for very big men. But when I was 17, I went from 165 to 175 in 4 weeks by doing 24 eggs each day and 700 to 1,000 Atlas Push-Ups. Nowadays I consume 6 to 12 eggs daily soft cooked in the shell or raw in my protein drinks and I do not perform any Push-Ups without a weight vest. Intensity, Intensity, Intensity. For what it is worth my cholesterol is low. Sugar, Pastries, & High Fructose Corn Syrup are the cause of bad cholesterol as they stimulate the liver to produce it.

Thank you for this detailed reply John - Very much appreciated!

You mentioned in your recent post that high volume training started to take it's toll and that your new physique (the cover for your new book) is a result of a lot less volume - Very interested in reading about this!

Hello kenpopaul,

Herschel Walker still trains high volume each day and it has paid off handsomely for him. But in my case, I felt as though I was spending a great deal time and a great deal of effort that could be put to better use. That is when I started getting serious about Isometrics in all of its many forms. I also decided to get serious about weight vest training. I had tried weight vest training twenty years ago but did not like it. This time it was different. This time I decided to keep it on even during rest periods and after my lungs got use to it I was amazed at how strong I got as a result of it.
