I received this from Dr. McGuff and thought I should share it with our community:


I wanted to let you know how much I am looking forward to the RenEx conference in October.  After the last conference I felt like I had experienced a quantum leap in my own training because I had experienced a benchmark for an intrinsic approach to training.  The techniques I learned have been applied to UE clients with great success and the word-of-mouth response has resulted in an influx of new clients.

Since the last conference the RenEx team has certainly stirred up the hornet’s nest within the HIT community.  While I feel this is certainly a less than optimal marketing strategy, it is certainly a way to potentially expedite discovery.  Only by drawing the ire of the best minds in your field can you hope to expose the weaknesses and inconsistencies of your own theory.  While this certainly has not made you popular, it has intensified the pressure to refine your own protocol.  Your willingness to do so is highlighted by your ability to entertain the idea that your relatively simple to produce static machines may potentially displace dynamic equipment that has taken 4 decades to refine. I am anxious to see what you have come up with.

Gradually, I have come to believe that the visible improvements in muscularity are only the tip of the iceberg when compared to the improvements which are not visible, but may be perhaps more important.  For those that are only interested in the visible changes, I suspect that these serve to mirror the unseen improvements, because the aesthetic improvements are biologic signals of health that underpin the science of attraction.  I hope that my contribution will serve to highlight both sides of this equation.

What I am most looking forward to is to see how the application your technology allows visible and extrinsic feedback of these invisible and intrinsic processes.  Perhaps such visible feedback can make us more capable of tapping the “alpha subject” within; bringing us that much closer to our true potential.   With 50 of us geeks in a room together, new insights may emerge and dead-ends may be exposed.  In any case, I am certain no one will leave unchanged.  

 See You in October!

I’ll join the throngs of posters on this thread by saying I too am interested to see how this static stuff plays out. Just looking at it quickly one might think it’s just an extension of the old Charles Atlas dynamic tension stuff but with a gauge to judge how hard you are pushing. I’ve been incorporating static holds at the end of my regular sets for the time being and it does make for a more intense set. Whether I’d enjoy or make any gains just doing statics I can’t tell as yet?

I just attended the “Future of Exercise” conference and the RenEx crew did a fantastic job. Every minute of the conference was productive. Every presentation informative. Every question asked was answered. It was run on schedule and the facilities were first class. The networking opportunities were priceless. I can say that it was run with the precision and attention to detail that these guys apply to everything they do and the Marine in me admires and respects that.

Last year, when Ken made the statement that he thought TSC was “future of exercise” I was skeptical. After all, what I’d been doing for the past ten years had been very productive for myself and clients. But, after experiencing just one brief session of it last year, I began to open my mind to the idea that he could be right. Learning what has been learned in the year since the last conference, I’m beginning to agree with Ken’s assertion. I’ve already taken what I’ve learned and begun to apply it to clients. They are commenting on the difference in what they are experiencing, which means that they are safely getting even more out of their session than they were before.

If you consider yourself a professional, then keeping abreast of current discoveries and best practices are a must. Don’t get left behind. Plan now to attend the next RenEx conference and move forward with the rest of us.

I don’t have the words to explain how good this makes me feel..THANK YOU!

I intend to put a play by play blog post of the event up this week, perhaps you will comment…it was a pleasure to have you there.

I thank You.

Can you be more specific about what you and your clients are “getting more of” by adding TSC?


avatar Joshua Trentine October 9, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Covered at “The Future of Exercise Conference” , DVD’s of this lecture will be made available.

My training partner was reading an old Marvel super-hero comic yesterday here in the UK and while glancing at an ancient ad for Charles Atlas wondered if his Dynamic Tension muscle building method was the first example of TSC?
His method of statically exerting one muscle group (sic) against its opposite number in the mid-range falls short of the sophisticated protocols we follow today and violates asymetric loading but its an interesting observation.
I’d love to hear Ken’s critique
