The last word on how to build a better body--from the late, great Mike Mentzer

With his revolutionary "Heavy Duty" system, Mike Mentzer changed the way bodybuilders train, showing them that "less is more" when it comes to making great gains. In The Wisdom of Mike Mentzer, you will discover Mike's most advanced training techniques and philosophies--previously known only to his inner circle and personal clients.

Drawing upon never-before-released materials, his longtime colleague John Little reveals Mentzer's most powerful lessons and workout plans, including:

  • The importance of working to failure
  • Techniques for pushing past mental and physical plateaus
  • How overtraining impedes progress
  • A complete advanced "Heavy Duty" training system

The workout that worked "like magic" for Mr. Universe himself More than an instruction manual, this thorough compendium brings together a lifetime of insights, training truths, and personal philosophies from one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 274 x 212 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. More than any other bodybuilding writer or authority, Mike Mentzer single-handedly changed the way bodybuilders the world over have looked at exercise. A logical (and necessary) companion volume to Mentzer s last book ( High Intensity Training The Mike Mentzer Way , which was also co-authored by Little), The Wisdom of Mike Mentzer goes much further. Whereas the former book revealed the fundamentals of Mentzer s revolutionary Heavy Duty training system, the latter presents not only Mentzer s final and most recent discoveries and innovations, but also never-before-released advanced training techniques that were known only to Mentzer s inner circle and personal clients. Illustrated with the most motivational photographs ever taken of Mentzer (in the gym, posing, and at work) as well as a gallery of his greatest inspirational physique shots, The Wisdom of Mike Mentzer is THE definitive book on the exacting science of building muscle - fast.Some of the materials revealed for the first time within the pages of this book are: how excessive training is slowing down your progress; the importance of working to the point of failure ; Mentzer s pioneering use of the early Nautilus machines: a complete Heavy Duty seminar; Mike Mentzer s Most Productive Routine; advanced Heavy Duty training techniques; a workout of two sets performed once a week - and why Mentzer thought it worked like magic compared to any other bodybuilding program; and, how to push past mental and physical plateaus. Additionally, the Mentzer estate has made available to the author never-before-released written, audio and video materials (including Mentzer s research into a revolutionary workout that consists of but two sets performed once every seven days that caused one client to actually double his bodyweight in one year!) from the Mike Mentzer archives, which, when combined with Little s unique personal history with Mentzer and full understanding of his training methods, have resulted in startling new insights and novel applications of Mentzer s revolutionary Heavy Duty training method.
