We featured Jim Haislop, 1968 Mr. America, way back in Zen 8. We recently ran across this shot of him, and all we can say is, Whoa!
His incredible symmetry, proportion, and size had many bodybuilding experts proclaiming him one of the best bodybuilders ever, competing at 5’11” at around 210 pounds with a 32” waist and 19” arms…
True mass with class…
One of the most popular ways to train way back in the ‘60s was heavy/light or, as we call it, Power/Density. Mixing heavier, lower-rep training with lighter higher rep and/or shorter rests is a sure-fire way to get mass in ALL muscle fiber types…
And if you’re a bodybuilder, you absolutely want to maximize the size of every last fiber in all of your muscle groups—maximum hypertrophy. Yes, even the type 1 “endurance” fibers…
Remember what researcher Jerry Brainum said recently:
It’s now known that type-1 [slow-twitch] fibers are also capable of showing a significant level of muscular hypertrophy.
Getting growth in BOTH the slow-twitch and fast-twitch fibers maximizes muscle volumization. In other words, you get a more overall “swole effect” for freaky muscle size.
A great way to do that is with our Power/Density programs for each muscle. For more on that, see out ebook The Ultimate Power-Density Mass Workout 2.0.
That ebook includes Mr. America Doug Brignole’s Super TORQ program.
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.

Veiny Arms All Day
You know that feeling you get right after a great workout? When you look and feel huge with that massive post-workout pump? Imagine feeling like that ALL day…
Frank Rich’s program can help you carry that just-worked-out look all day, and he’s offering it to our readers for almost nothing.
It’s one thing to develop big arms, but if when they look solid and have veins streaking all over, that’s when people really notice.
Frank has research showing that arm vascularity (the denseness and veininess) is more desirable to women than 6-pack abs, and if you’ve been following any fitness stuff on social media lately, you know that’s a fact.
We know from our own years of experience with being in various levels of conditioning that we get a LOT more looks when walking through the grocery store or running random errands when we have veins streaking down our arms.
Oh, and Frank’s new arm program (*plus all the bonuses*) is only $9 today, so take advantage while you can.
