Official Doug Hepburn Thread
 
"Never attempt to accelerate your progress" Doug Hepburn

"It is harder to be a lifter than a bodybuilder...lifting is purely masculine whereas bodybuilding entails feminine traits. Bodybuilding reminds me of a woman getting ready to go somewhere. Can you tell me that greasing your body up and posing in front of a mirror is masculine? A bodybuilder puts strength secondary to his physique, whereas the lifter puts strength foremost because it is more masculine to do so."

Doug Hepburn, Taken from Ironman, September 1954.

HaHa...I was reading that article just the other day on Bob Whelan's site. I was going to post it here, but didn't want to offend any of the bodybuilders :)

We all love and respect each other.

There was quite a bit of hidden, or not so hidden homosexuality in bodybuilding back then. It is quite common to see men posing with men, holding poles and other phallic objects. Here is one such image:

I can see what Doug would say that.

No harm, no foul. Bodybuilders think we're fat and hairy, so it's even.

Oh my goodness, that picture is scary.

I have read some of the letters posted in the Hoffman magazine accusing Weeder of gay porn. Pretty funny stuff and I originally thought he was exaggerating. But if that picture is anything like what they were talking about, he wasn't too far off.

I've never been a fan of the magazines, except Hardgainer, Milo, and Dinosaur Files.

It seems annoying how many different versions of these routines there are
First of all Routine A, B old versions, then the new versions & Routine C, then the one in 'Hepburn's Law'

I can tell you from some personal experience with them that the 8x3 can be hard out the gate for someone moving solid weight already. I really recommend trying a 6x3 first to get the feel and then maybe moving into an 8x3.

Or start the 8x lighter and build up, light one would with Wendler's.

I wouldn't worry too much about specific variations. The general principle of methodical progression, no matter how you structure it, is going to bulldoze some PRs.
