High-Intensity Training the Mike Mentzer WayTHE FINAL BOOK BY

The name of Mike Mentzer is synonymous with physical perfection in the art and science of bodybuilding. He was the first bodybuilder to ever garner a perfect score in competition and an innovator and pioneer in the realm of bodybuilding training and nutrition. Mentzer's ideas - culled from intense personal research with thousands of bodybuilders the world over, as well as his own vast in-the-gym experiences - have been embraced by bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts, CEOs of multi-million dollar corporations, and hailed by the scientific community.

More than any other bodybuilding writer or authority, Mike Mentzer has single-handedly changed the way American bodybuilders have looked at exercise. His insights have been highly sought after by bodybuilding magazine publishers (Muscle & Fitness, Flex, All Natural Muscular Development, Ironman, and MuscleMag International) for over 20 years.

Although he was a prolific writer and lecturer, traveling the world to speak on the subjects of muscle building and the art of living a more rational and rewarding life, the distilled wisdom of his over 30 years of study and research into the ultimate nature of bodybuilding training has never before been recorded into a single volume - until now!

With "High-Intensity Training the Mike Mentzer Way", Mentzer reveals the summary of over three decades of his training and bodybuilding research. This incredible book reveals how you can get fast results in a fraction of the time. Forget what you've read about "more is better." Follow Mentzer's pioneering principles of HEAVY DUTY high-intensity training -- as laid out in these photo-packed pages -- and you'll build bigger arms, rounder pecs, and thicker delts without devoting your life to working out. You will ultimately reach a higher level of physical fitness, gain a greater self-esteem, and learn to think with logic and sound rational thought in your every day life's situations, as well as, your training.

If you are tired of spending countless hours pumping iron at the gym with minimal results, if you have upped your training time and weights but experienced little or no change in your physique, this book is the answer to what you've been searching for! By using this HEAVY DUTY high-intensity training program, you will find there is no excuse not to reach your maximum potential - no matter how busy your schedule seems to be.

In "High-Intensity Training the Mike Mentzer Way", Mentzer shares his proven, groundbreaking approach to bodybuilding, based on scientific research and sound thinking. Applied properly, this method of short, intense training sessions will develop your muscles to their genetic potential faster and more efficiently than any other program out there. Here you will discover:

  • How excessive training is slowing down your progress
  • The importance of working to the "point of failure"
  • Three easy ways to raise the intensity level of your workouts
  • Why added low-intensity sets are counterproductive
  • Four simple techniques for maximum muscle stimulation
  • Why a six-day split routine does not provide ample rest
  • How to push past mental and physical plateaus

Once you master the system, you'll be able to answer your own training problems and become your own coach. You'll move beyond bodybuilding myths to understand what is holding you back and what will move you closer to the physique you desire!

Illustrated with the most motivational training pictures ever taken of Mentzer in the gym, as well as a gallery of his greatest inspirational physique shots, "High-Intensity Training the Mike Mentzer Way" is THE definitive book on the exacting science of building muscle fast.
