When Arthur Jones ventured into athletic strength and conditioning industry, his imitable approach was, as always, nothing new under the sun, in which he worshipped. He had already conquered many myths and superstitions in the industries he had dominated previously. His approach to wild animal conservation and relocation was done in a way that had never been seen before or since. He had vanquished the experts that laughed and scoffed at him and told him he could not survive and succeed in uncharted and dangerous territories. He incredibly succeeded in spite of their lofty opinions. He filmed over 300 episodes of a TV Wild Life Series that made anything made since look like child's play. And so, when he wrote his first articles on athletic training, he dropped bombs on every silly training philosophy that had ever existed. The result is that these were the most brilliant of his works. They so far exceeded anything on the scene that nothing before or since could ever rival such excellence. His passionate desire to communicate the facts over the fables is evident in every article in this series. brings back to life the genius' best works, a must read for anyone involved in any way shape or form in the fitness field. Arthur's works here forever will change your direction in exercise as it relates to sports training, but in a positive way.
