I left an extensive response to this article in order to set some matters straight. Here is my post to the Smithsonia article on Charles Atlas and DT:

The people that claim they saw Atlas lifting weights after age seventeen, or that Atlas said he "supplemented" Dynamic Tension with weights are untruthful. Why? LOOK AT THE PHOTOS OF HIS STUDENTS THROUGH THE YEARS! Those men have VERY impressive physiques, MANY FAR MORE MUSCULAR THAN ATLAS! PLUS THOSE MEN ACHEIVED THOSE RESULTS IN A MATTER OF MONTHS WITH ATLAS' COURSE! If Dynamic Tension didn't work as advertised those men would not have such physiques! The naysayers are protecting the exercise gadget industry, a very lucrative industry indeed! It would be very bad for business if the world discovered that weights and exercise gizmos are a waste of time, money, and living space.

Between the ages of 20 and 25 I gained 70 pounds of muscle using the Atlas exercises. I became very powerful, able to lift small cars and walk with them like wheelbarrows, strictly to impress people. Today at 56 I still am faithful to the Atlas System and can wrestle down young men in their twenties and thirties with ease, holding both of their wrists in my hand and they're helpless. Everyone I know who lifted weights has lots of damage to their bodies from them. The AMA endorses the Charles Atlas system of Dynamic Tension, which is NOT isometrics by the way! Isometrics are STATIC exercises. Dynamic Tension is DYNAMIC, meaning you MOVE throughout the entire range of your muscles motions. Calling Dynamic Tension "isometrics" is another ploy by the Barbell Cartel to discredit Atlas and DT.

ATLAS TOLD THE TRUTH AND LIVED THE TRUTH. Use your own brain and eyes. Look at the photos of Atlas and his students. Unless one is involved in weightlifting competitions, no one needs them. Period. Sign up with Atlas today!

I've used dumbbells & resistance bands for physical therapy for a damaged rotator cuff myself & I have added a chin-up bar to my daily Charles Atlas routine, BUT it was the Smithsonian article that prodded me to search for Charles Atlas on the web & buy the course (currently at 400 push-ups, 320 crunches & 240 squats a day), so I am glad it was there!
