Short-Range Exercises and 30-10-30

Dr. Darden,

Do you recommend using the 30-10-30 protocol on exercises with short ranges of motion like calf-raises or the 4-way neck machine?

It doesn’t work as well on short-range-of-movement exercises.

Dr. Darden, After reading “Killing Fat” I want to begin the 30-10-30 approach but at the age of 58 I’m wondering if there is a machine alternative to squats. I don’t have the option of a spotter. I never seem to do squats correctly and end up doing more harm than good.

You should be able to adapt almost any leg press machine for your purposes.


Appreciate the response.
