For the first time in one volume -- the extraordinary scientific, training, and philosophical contributions of the legendary founder of the HEAVY DUTY™ high-intensity training system – MIKE MENTZER!

This hard-hitting new book is the answer to these and many other questions -- including:

  • What was Mike's most productive routine?
  • What was his final evolution of his Heavy Duty training system?
  • Why is training less better than training more?
  • What philosophy of life did Mike subscribe to -- and why?
  • Why is posing a crucial expression of who you really are and what you believe?
  • What routine did Mike follow to build such HUGE arms?
THE WISDOM OF MIKE MENTZER is truly a book that is chock-full of wisdom -- an all too rare commodity in today’s bodybuilding culture of drugs and commercialism. It is the distillation of Mike Mentzer’s exceptional insights and long-term research into not only the science of building bigger and stronger muscles, but also (and perhaps more importantly) the art and science of building character. It provides readers with a unique passkey into the world of Mike Mentzer – the man, the philosopher, and the legend. Packed with information and many never-before-seen photos, THE WISDOM OF MIKE MENTZER is both a poignant and powerful book that all Mike Mentzer fans -- old and new -- will find themselves referring to again and again. 165 pages – 8 ˝” X 11” and packed with many new photos.

It has come to our attention that this book has been selling on auction sites (USED) for $150 a copy! Don't fall prey to anyone who is only looking to put money in their pocket by selling their used copy. They are taking advantage of you, and let's face it, they cannot be a loyal fan if they are willing to give up their book.

Thank you for your continued interest in the HEAVY DUTY© book (also referred to as HEAVY DUTY 1 by many Mentzer fans). Your patience has been appreciated.

HEAVY DUTY© I -- The book that started a revolution!
A "must have" book for those who want to collect all of Mike Mentzer's works and follow the evolution of his teaching throughout the years. Mike reveals how you too can reach your greatest bodybuilding potential in the shortest amount of time, while training less that one hour a week! Mike reveals the role of genetics in bodybuilding, psychological and motivational factors, unique dietary considerations, high-intensity training principles, training to failure, and places bodybuilding into a completely unique perspective. Responding to the public demand for this revolutionary book, Mentzer-Sharkey Enterprises, Inc. has made it available once again to Mike's fans and students, and it may very well be its final print run.

Published in 1993 - 69 pages in 8 1/2" X 11" - including photos.

Heavy Duty II


HEAVY DUTY II: Mind and Body© -- Mike Mentzer's "magnum opus", his final evolution of the theory of High-Intensity Training.

New and groundbreaking insights into recovery ability, higher intensity and shorter workouts, consolidated training, when to use advanced principles, such as, forced reps and negatives to maximum effect; in addition, insights into corruption in bodybuilding, and the power of human reason to discern truth from falsehood. The title speaks for itself, as it is a book of high philosophy, motivational success stories, and the very zenith of bodybuilding training science. HEAVY DUTY II is known by most as "the bible" of high-intensity bodybuilding. This is more than a bodybuilding book - it is a training partner! Nor is it a book you will read once and put it on the shelf; each time you read it, you will learn even more than you had hoped to learn.

Published in 1996 - 163 pages in 5 3/4" x 8 1/2" - including photos.

Muscles in MinutesMUSCLES IN MINUTES© -- Mike published this book in year 2000.
No, this is not Heavy Duty III. Entitled "MUSCLES IN MINUTES", this book serves perfectly as a primer on the subject of HIT. It will introduce those new to the topic of high-intensity training to the fundamentals of exercise science and their inter-relationships, written without all the philosophy and technicalities of Mike's previous works. It provides workout routines for the bodybuilder, athlete, and those seeking "total fitness", including a "Break-In" routine for those who are new to high-intensity training. Important for many, it contains extensive descriptions of all the recommended exercises. Nutrition and motivation are included.

Yes, there is some overlapping with the HEAVY DUTY books, however, for the well-schooled HIT advocate, it does contain some NEW facts and information about HEAVY DUTY™ High Intensity Training, as the truly ideal means of building strength, size and overall fitness. "MUSCLES IN MINUTES" will prove helpful as quick and easy reference material, also for the HIT expert.

Book cover photo is a favorite photo of many Mentzer Fans, 46 pages in 8 ˝ X 11 with no photos.

Heavy Duty Journal Updated! UPDATED NOTICE June 15, 2017
We apologize for not finishing the Revised Heavy Duty Journal. Due to unexpected circumstances with the loss of several loved ones, Joanne Sharkey has been unable to devote the necessary time to complete this project in a manner that Mike would expect. It would be appreciated if you did not send emails asking what the release date will be. When (and if) it is ready to go to print, a new notice will be posted here. Thank you very much for your patience and continued interest!

HEAVY DUTY Journal© -- A must for all serious bodybuilders and athletes!
NOTE: Mike Mentzer did NOT want to reprint this original version because he said it was outdated and it needed to be updated. This original version is not in stock.

This is not a "working" training journal, it is power-packed with even more invaluable teaching from Mike, as he delves into topics never before explored in bodybuilding: The scientific application of stress physiology, cultivating metabolic momentum, understanding and applying the body's natural patterns of flux and change in order to peak for a contest. Includes, rest pause training (a super high-intensity technique that allowed Mike to gain 14 pounds of pure muscle in 9 weeks - at an already advanced level of muscle, mass and strength!), and the latest in scientific bodybuilding are just a few of the subjects brought to you in this one of a kind journal book. Includes awesome photos of Mike Mentzer!

Scroll down to get your copy if you haven’t already purchased it.

NOTE: The 1980 Mr. Olympia 2-DVD SET has been combined on ONE DVD disc by the photographer. Please note the price changes on this DVD as well as the other two below.

1980 MR. OLYMPIA - Complete Event Coverage!

1980 MR. OLYMPIA DVD SET The journalistic reports - in every magazine - which followed the contest, indicated that it was fixed. Each stated that Arnold was far from his best shape - while Mike Mentzer had reached a pinnacle! It seemed that the entire world of bodybuilding was in agreement - except the judges! Many concluded that other competitors at the '80 "O" were better than Arnold, too.

This video classic includes exciting footage of that era's most celebrated bodybuilding champions in their best shape ever. The competitors are shown during the relaxed comparisons, individual posing, and the nighttime pose down. This tape is a must for any serious bodybuilder, as it not only inspires, but serves, too, as important historical material. Was it a fix? You decide!

The line-up included Mike Mentzer, Chris Dickerson, Frank Zane, Boyer Coe, Roy Duval, Casey Viator, Roy Callender, Ken Waller, Samir Bannout, Tom Platz, Danny Padilla, Roger Walker, etc. Includes prejudging footage, plus the show. Strictly a contest video showing all competitors, and it is the ONLY record filmed from in front of the stage for this controversial contest! Held October 4th, 1980 at the Opera House in Sydney, Australia. Film to video transfer, music added.

This disc contains "lost footage" which is primarily from the prejudging and is edited together with unused footage. Thirteen of the sixteen competitors are shown as they walk on stage. Next it is the Round 1 lineup, 1/4 turns and then groups of quarter turns. See the comparative compulsory poses in various groups including Mike next to Arnold. Plus Boyer Coe, Zane, Callendar and more.

Finally, the exciting top seven pose-down after some more compulsory poses. Then the complete awards from 6th place through to Arnold in 1st place. RUNNING TIME: 1 HOUR 22 MIN.

MIKE & RAY MENTZER IN THE GYM To satisfy the volume of requests for this film from Mentzer fans, we now offer it to you through this web site.

The awesome Mentzer brothers, fueled by their intense rivalry, show what they can do when they pump iron. Filmed in the gym in Los Angeles, they blast their way through "display workouts" with a little less than the actual weights they normally used!!

Mike and Ray each go through one of their most incredible workouts, muscles dripping with sweat - the intensity, muscle display and sheer power will shock you!

After Mike flexes and poses each muscle group, hard and pumped, they head for Venice Beach. Ray Mentzer oils, pumps and poses in a fantastic solo presentation, for the final 15 minutes of the tape. This posing footage will guide and inspire you in your own posing.

When time permits, a new series of photos will be chosen that will be in color. Please do not email asking when the new photos will be released. A notice will be posted when they are available. Thank you.

At this time, we would like to thank all of you who purchased the 3 photos of the legendary Mike Mentzer photographed by Garry Barlett. We are now out of stock on these vintage Black & White photos of 3 of Mike's classic poses, and the decision has been made not to reproduce more of these same shots. In the original write up, it was stated that "The photos in this series are destined to become collectors' items!" The main reason is that they were never circulated before and also they marked a specific event. They were photographed by Garry Bartlett, International Bodybuilding Photo Journalist. Captured on film in the spring of 1980 in Quebec, Canada where Mike attended a special guest-posing exhibition, during an era when Mike dominated the bodybuilding scene! No other bodybuilder captured the essence of pure muscle and strength as Mike Mentzer.
