Art's focus, as far as I can tell, seems to be more on health than max performance. He has said a number of times that most competitive top athletes are overtraining/wasting away, and uses the figures of post career disabilities as evidence. See how bball pros loose muscle mass throughout the season, for example.
For Art, that level of activity isn't healthy, and I can see his point.
Art is a man who prides himself on decades without any illness. I feel like as I get older my training will move more in line with his methods, but for now I am oly focused.
