Fred Hatfield was a personal friend of mine and he told me a few stories about Jones. He said one of his favorite sayings was "Fast cars, fast women and alligators." Now I understand.As always, thank you for your input.
Yes, it takes very little in the way of equipment,; great gains if you
have the genetics, but good gains if you don't. And yes, Arthur based
much what he designed and the results he produced from his personal
experience . . . training less and less but very very intensely
and infrequently. He always advocated one day off between training.
And he always said that if you trained hard enough you would not want
to train the next day, and said as much about the multiple of sets
(usually one, some times two or three) and the large variety of
exercises he saw people do. One set, trained to utter failure and you
would not want to do another set. Ever vomited from a set of curls?
While vomiting is not a requirement, it is a given that
you should train that hard, until the bar literally drop from your hands.
Not fun and repeating that even less fun.
Yes, I had Bo Derek's phone number too . Regretfully I never called or met
her which I had planned to do when I got home but it just never seemed
to work out. Arthur flew her and her then(?) husband John Derek to Austrailia
to purchase the largest crocodile in the world (Arthur liked big animals) from
George Craig on Green Island in Australia. Arthur gave Bo a bunch of
tanned rattlesnake skins and he thought that if she still had them she might
give me some or all of them because she was doing nothing with them.
(One of the millionth regrets of my life.)
Joe Weider I had no desire to talk to. I will scan and post today an
interesting contract that Joe had with Arthur. Arthur was supposed to
write some articles for one of his magazines but I don't think it ever
came to fruition.
I also have a letter from Fred Hatfield to me about his poor quad testing
results he had on Arthurs quad rehab / testing machine (Arthur tested
me on it too); Fred offering up nothing but excuses.
All in due time it will be revealed, some unbelievable.
