MIKE MENTZER’S HEAVY DUTY™ TRAINING LIVES ON!!!
AND, HIS GENIOUS EVEN MORE!!! – Posted 11/18/13
by Shanon Boutin, Personal Trainer and Heavy Duty Student - Quebec, CANADA
Well it’s been nearly three years since my last tribute and testimonial to Mike, Ray and their HEAVY DUTY™ training principles, but I have continued to try and spread the word around concerning Heavy Duty™ training and directing others to MikeMentzer.com
It’s the least I can do as a Personal Trainer and High Intensity student to help keep the legacy of Mike and Ray alive!!!
I’ve gone on to compete in two contest for the UFE “Ultimate Fitness Events” in 2012, where I placed 3rd in May of 2012, and all the while using Mike’s Consolidation Routine with four total exercises that used up only 20 minutes of my time with one set to failure, training once every 4 to 7 days I’m now using Mike’s Ideal Routine, training once every 6 to 7 days, sometimes a longer rest period, and still progressing on my reps and weight used. Following are some of my stats regarding my continued progress:
Leg Press from 240 lbs. to 540 lbs.
Seated Dumbbell Extension from 70 lbs. to 95 lbs.
Pec-Dec from 100 lbs. to 130 lbs.
Don’t despair, I encourage everybody and anybody to step up and take the challenge of trying Mike’s and Ray’s HEAVY DUTY™ training so they can see for themselves!
In closing, a special thanks to Joanne Sharkey for her continuing efforts and personal encouragement.
