Back in when I was 17 years old I heard about a guy named Mike Mentzer. He then burst onto the bodybuilding scene in scoring a perfect in the Universe that year.

After that we started to train like Mike. Basically using one set to maximum and that's the key word, "Maximum" to complete muscular failure. Using the concentric, static, and eccentric forces to complete muscle exhaustion.

Is it the best training method? Could be. Are there other excellent ways to train? HIT might be the best for some people and not that good for others. Nothing wrong with 8 sets of 2 or 5 sets of 5. Mike was always a believer in Nautilus Machines. Not everybody has access to Nautilus. Nothing wrong with Olympic bars and plates and solid dumbbells. High Intensity Training isn't the only way to train.

Give it a shot. If it works well for you keep using it. If you're not completely sold on it, try mixing it in with your standard way of training. Mike was a big believer in carbohydrates making up the most of his calorie intake. Most bodybuilders think protein first. Again, try that. If it works well for you keep it in. The book is excellent. Actually written by John Little after Mikes death in I bought the book because I believe there might be something in there that I have over looked the past 45 years.

A person is never to old to learn something new. I'm almost 59 years old now. Still benching, still curling, still pressing.

I still love it. Should Mike have won the Olympia? Absolutely he should have. I was on my way to joining this group due to declining health caused by a sedentary life style and poor eating habits and decided to do something about it. After buying a book by Dr. Mike's program of HIIT training has helped me regain declining strength and muscle lost by years of atrophy. I was able to do this and not have to spend hours in the gym doing it, thirty minutes tops, once a week.

I highly recommend this book for all ages, especially seniors, like myself. I am actually quite excited to try out this "new" system. I have been working out pretty regularly for about 10 years, I am more a fitness enthusiast than bodybuilder.

I don't have any desire to get as big as possible, but more so to have a muscular physique and be in good general shape. I have been following the normal sets x reps for pretty much the entire time I've been working out with decent results.

I definitely look better and am stronger than 10 years ago. The reason for looking into this was more of a time-saver. A normal workout is pretty short for me right now, say minutes but I'm always looking for a better way to get the same if not better results in shorter time. This system focuses around really taxing the muscle in 1 set, through very slow reps up and down versus the traditional way of larger volume. It also suggests longer resting periods between workouts to really focus on recovery as we know your muscles actually grow during recovery, not training.

Will this work? I believe so, it's just science. Once you really tax a muscle out to the point another rep is not possible, give adequate time to recover and then increase the intensity in the next workout through more reps or more weight, why wouldn't it? It's simply following the break it down, let it repair, and then challenge it again harder philosophy that forces muscles to change, and grow.

This system just does it in a compressed manner, with more intensity. I figure worst case scenario, even if my gains are the same I am still saving time versus the longer marathon workouts some people do, and that's more time for me to focus on life. I haven't been this sore in a while! This experimental workout lasted about 20 minutes only during which I tried these principles with pullups, behind the neck shoulder presses, preacher curls and side lateral raises for shoulders. Took each set to failure as recommended You must make an honest effort and go to true failure i.

You're done with that exercise and on to the next This seems to have a lot of promise! The key is really finding exercises you can perform under perfect control, with little to no sloppiness. It boils down to much more intensity, in much lesser time.

I'm a believer! A very readable and concise guide to HIT. Breaks the method down and thoroughly explains the reasoning behind it, but does not lose the non-specialist reader with too much scientifically worded discussion of physiology. Also, it does take the reader wandering off with too many anecdotes and war stories. Also, I was glad that he didn't visit too heavily the old issues between himself, Weider, and Schwarzenegger. Instead, he treated them with decorum.

Thanks for a great book Mike. May your legacy last. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.

Mike Mentzer In The Modern World

In spending nearly all of his adulthood refining his Heavy Duty training system, Mike Mentzer — had only one goal. Mentzer was unorthodox and unrepentant about his iconoclastic training views. He railed against researchers who, in his eyes, essentially were false prophets of speculation, not true scientific work. He ranted against bodybuilding officials whom he felt failed to honor his physique accomplishments, cheating him of the Mr. Olympia title. And he dismissed bodybuilders who adhered to the more-is-better school of training without question.
