High-Intensity Training the Mike Mentzer Way
1stPublisher: McGraw-Hill CompaniesFormat: Paperback
This volume profiles the high-intensity training (HIT) techniques pioneered by Mike Mentzer, the bodybuilder who wrote the monthly column “Heavy Duty” in “Ironman” magazine until his death in 2001, after which time co-author John Little took over authorship of the column. Mentzer was also a leading competitor, trainer and bodybuilding consultant. He was the first person ever to earn a perfect score in the Mr Universe competition, competing against other bodybuilders including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno. This book aims to help bodybuilders to get results - and win competitions - by doing shorter, less frequent workouts each week. HIT sessions are extremely time-efficient, requiring that bodybuilders spend roughly 40 minutes per week training. (Many bodybuilders would expect to spend three times that long working out every single day to see results). The text is written by Mike Mentzer, with editorial assistance from John Little. The photographs offer an array of inspirational and instructional shots of Mentzer (all from noted professional bodybuilding photographers), both in national and world competitions and in the gym.The focus of this book is on Mentzer's proven-effective workouts and training techniques, along with pictures of a world-class bodybuilder. Biographical information on Mentzer rounds out the text.
