You guys don't know who Arthur Jones is.....

He is the founder of Nautilus (exercise equipment) and is the person who came up with the idea of intensity over long workouts.

He had a facility in Colorado that they would train people (Casey Viator - youngest Mr. America ever, 3rd place, Mr. O) and Mike Mentzer (2nd place Mr. Olympia, only perfect score as a heavyweight at a Mr. Universe contest).  These guys would do these high intensity workouts 3x/week, 20 minutes, 30 minutes tops.  In 12 weeks, they would go from out of shape to contest ready. 

From this point, it died down a bit, until Yates resurrected it.  Then, everyone followed it again.  Now Mark Dugdale is leading the group of high-intensity, low volume trainers.

So, Arthur Jones was a revolutionary mind in the sport of bodybuilding....if he didn't come along, we'd all still be training 6 days/week, 2-3 hours/day.

Arthur Jones is probably the only genius ever involved in the Iron Game. He revolutionized hypertrophy theory and professional gym equipment. His influence has been major and I doubt we will see a character like him again. I spoke with him on the phone in 1994 re my biceps-supination machine. He had a good sense of humour and was very interesting to speak with. I have nothing but respect for Arthur as an thinker, writer, inventor, trainer and all round interesting guy. Few of us ever approach living a life as rich as Arthur did.

He always carried a gun.

And legend has it that when Jones found out that one of the bodybuilders living and training at his facility were selling to his son, Jones had the man held, while he pistol-whipped him senseless.

Could've been Roger Callard.
