"Human progress hinges on the commitment of a select few to not accept current knowledge as a final truth, to continue to strive to constantly improve their methods, their knowledge base, their skill set. John Little questioned conventional strength training methods and has created a system that takes traditional results to the next level. As a well-established innovator in fitness and strength training, his methods have been employed by hundreds of thousands of individuals around the world. His methods have been touted as the impetus for 'physiology books to be rewritten,' and can save hours of unnecessary time in the gym, and will open your eyes to the most up-to-date research and information available--a tremendously potent technology that, when properly applied, will result in real, meaningful, and sustainable physical results, and will help build a confidence in your own abilities that will permeate into all areas of your life." --Anthony Robbins, Peak Performance Coach and author of Awaken the Giant Within (From the Foreword to Max Contraction Training) "Groundbreaking. This is truly an incredible discovery that could cause physiology books to be rewritten." --Ironman magazine "A thorough, productive weight workout in less than three minutes? You better believe it! Larger muscles. Stronger techniques. Fewer injuries. What more do you want?" --Martial Arts Training magazine "This training approach has begun to stimulate our thinking in entirely new directions." --Muscle & Fitness "Don't be surprised if you see substantial results in only three workouts! That's how good this system is." --Muscular Development

Today's advanced bodybuilder stands at a crossroads. Ignorance, deceit and multi-million dollar advertising campaigns cloud the skies of bodybuilding reality, all competing for his attention and all telling him to do the wrong thing. To continue to grow bigger and stronger, the advanced bodybuilder must train harder, which requires extremely brief but intense training, but the magazines, personal trainers and the current crop of bodybuilding champions all advocate training methods that are the exact opposite. The advanced bodybuilder tries these routines, fails at his goal, and then - if he hasn't already - decides that growth drugs are the only solution to his dilemma. Thus begins the end of his legitimate muscle gains and, often, the end of any attempt to lead a normal and happy life. After years of researching the dilemma of the advanced bodybuilder, bodybuilding pioneer John Little (creator of "Max Contraction Training") offers the first scientific and practical solution - the "Omega Set," an ultra intense variation on the Max Contraction theme, engineered specifically and exclusively for the advanced trainee. Although the data is still preliminary at this juncture, advanced trainees have gained upwards of 26 pounds in 12 weeks employing this revolutionary new protocol. In addition, Little reveals and offers solutions to the physiological and psychological obstacles that await the advanced bodybuilder on the path to his future progress. Unlike most "advanced" bodybuilding books that simply council the advanced trainee to add more and hope for the best, Little clearly and unambiguously reveals precisely the cause and effect relationship between advanced training methods and advancedtraining results. "Max Contraction Training For Advanced Bodybuilders" breaks new ground in bodybuilding training and represents the final (Omega) word in high intensity training.

There is something terribly wrong with the state of exercise as we know it presently. Sales of treadmills, running shoes, gym memberships, and yoga classes are at an all-time high, but so too are our national levels of obesity and type II diabetes. Ever since the 1960s the exercising public has been told to stretch for flexibility and to perform low-intensity steady-state aerobic exercise for their cardiovascular systems and some form of resistance training to keep their muscles strong. With regard to diet, they have been told to restrict or omit macronutrients such as fats and carbohydrates and lots of other advice with regard to calorie-counting. Could it be that this information, however well intended, was mistaken? And is it really necessary to devote so much time to the pursuit? Fitness researcher and pioneer John Little has spent more than twelve years researching the actual science underpinning our most prevalent beliefs about exercise and has come away from the enterprise convinced that we need an entirely new paradigm, one that would involve reliance on briefer workouts. He presents this revolutionary new approach in The Time-Saver's Workout. Among the fascinating revelations presented in this book: • Certain types of exercise can actually make you less healthy and fatter. • Taking large doses of food supplements might actually shorten your life and put you at greater risk for disease. • Stretching to become more flexible or to recover quicker from injury has been found to do neither of these things. • Resistance training, once considered to be the weak sister of exercise, is now looking like the best form of exercise one should engage in. The new protocols that Little exposes offer a far safer alternative for those looking to become stronger, fitter, and healthier without spending their lives in the gym.

A PAPERBACK ORIGINAL High-intensity bodybuilding advice from the first man to win a perfect score in the Mr. Universe competition This one-of-a-kind book profiles the high-intensity training (HIT) techniques pioneered by the late Mike Mentzer, the legendary bodybuilder, leading trainer, and renowned bodybuilding consultant.

In addition to sharing Mentzer's workout and training techniques, featured here is fascinating biographical information and striking photos of the world-class bodybuilder--taken by noted professional bodybuilding photographers--that will inspire and instruct serious bodybuilders and weight lifters everywhere.

Charleston Harbor is formed by the junction of the Ashley, Wando, and Cooper Rivers. Prior to 1940, the three rivers had an average freshwater inflow of about 415 cfs (Ashley, 261 cfs; Wando, 82 cfs; and Cooper, 72 cfs). In 1942, the Santee-Cooper Hydroelectric Project was completed, and the flow from the Santee River was diverted through the Pinopolis Power Plant into the west branch of the Cooper River. The average annual freshwater inflow of the Cooper River was increased from 72 cfs to about 15,000 cfs weekly average. Density currents associated with a flow-induced stratified condition changed the characteristics of the system and caused significant shoaling in the harbor. To ameliorate shoaling conditions, three contraction dikes were constructed in the Cooper River. One contraction dike was constructed on the west bank opposite the Naval Base Channel Realignment, while the other two contraction dikes were constructed on the east and west banks just south of the Contraction training dikes.
