Mike Mentzer's instructional HIT Videos

I don’t know how to plug a video directly so excuse me for just a link.


That’s part two of ‘High Intensity Bodybuilding’.

I think it was charismatic and second, it sounds a lot like he/they used the soundtrack of The Shining as background music which would be interesting.

He spelled dumbbell wrong.

I always get a kick out of seeing old shots of the Mentzer bros. My brother and I used to train together, and would joke how if we both one day won the Universe, we’d be just as cool (of course I was Mike, and he’d have to be Ray -lol)

… and dead within 48 hours one each other.

Yeah, that was damn creepy wasn’t it?.. I always wondered what the real story was behind that…

Meth habits. The guy drank pee, for God’s sake.

crazy for an HIT guy but I’ve never seen any of Mike’s stuff

supposedly he advocated training frequencies that are extreme even by HIT standards, like once a month workouts

As long as it’s sterile and they like the taste, what’s the problem?

Would this have been better…?

That is a weird video. What’s the story with it?
I can see Mentzer was stoned there too.
I like how he’s going around showing what he thinks of the band meanwhile they all tower over him.

Christ, I’m typing as I watch and he just put that guy’s hat on.

uhh… wow,… I don’t know what to say,… I love that AC/DC song, and Mentzer’s definitely one of my fav all time BBers,… but … wow… that was just too weird.

No doubt. It’s like two different videos that did not belong together were melded into one.
