High-Intensity Training the Mike Mentzer Way (NTC SPORTS/FITNESS)
About this deal
A man who trains regularly can coast on three or more weeks of complete inactivity without any loss in muscle or strength. For the Olympian, success no longer depends on winning and losing, nor on the extrinsic rewards that come from winning contests (fame, trophies, money). Dual-factor works with fitness and fatigue, and you can think of it similar to how you get tired during a workout, you build up fatigue over a longer extent of time to create adaption on a larger time scale. Jag har sänkt antalet dagar jag tränar till fem vilket än så länge fortfarande känns bra och jag blir starkare mellan varje pass. Although his approach to training can be extreme in certain aspects, pulling training information from this book can be useful when applied to your own training leading me to confidently say this book is worth reading.
After he retired, Mentzer prescribed increasingly lower volume—eventually as few as only one or two all-out sets per body part every two weeks! Just do the following: 1) Skip all the detours into politics and philosophy 2) Supplement the routines with articles that Dorian Yates has written for Flex and Muscular Development magazines and 3) use a Hammer Strength machine if doing forced reps or lifting extra-heavy. For example, do workout A on Monday, B on Wednesday, A on Friday, B on Sunday (or Monday, if you prefer to take weekends off). Extremely time-efficient, HIT sessions require roughly 40 minutes per week of training--as compared with the lengthy workout sessions many bodybuilders would expect to put in daily.You can see the weight room as a place that caters to the cold, uncaring reality objectivism offers.
This book dives into the science (real science and a bit of bro science too) behind "High Intensity Training," provides a workout programme and rounds out with chapters specific to the hardcore bodybuilder and a couple of decent motivational promos. Mike Mentzer was an incredible man, and his philosophy has fundamentally changed the way I view exercise after reading his book. Further, if one set is all you need for each exercise because multitudes aren't necessary, why are two exercises better than 1 exercise per workout? He was a "my way or the highway" kind of guy, but they are a must read if you're at all serious about training with weights.
The real value here is the more philosophical and mentality people should take with them into training as well as learning the principals and function of HIT. Se eu tivesse lido aos 10 anos ou imaginando na data de lançamento, deveria ter sido algo extremamente novo e que apresentava resultado. Jag letar efter övningar som är lättare att applicera tekniker för att ta mina muskler förbi positiv failure. Man ska utvecklas varje pass och gör man inte det så får man se över intensitet, volym och återhämtning. His highly effective, proven approach enables bodybuilders to get results--and win competitions--by doing shorter, less frequent workouts each week.
I had for several years accepted the idea that my athletic peak was in high school and in a rare moment of doubting that idea I got this book on a whim. From reading this book I learned about Mike Menzter’s 'achieving failure’ philosophy with lifting weights.The last 25% of the book he talks about being a bodybuilder, likening it to being a warrior, and an Olympian, and reading Nietzsche for five hours precontest to get himself pumped up.
