Mike Mentzer's Heavy Duty System Review

By Gregory T. Glading

I am a former professional wrestler who can testify that the Mentzer, Auther Jones heavy duty system works. HIT bodybuilding also works in a way that the traditional mufti-set system doesn't - The Mike Mentzer programs bring greater and more rapid strength gains. Nevertheless, that is not the biggest benefit of Mr. Mentzer's system. The biggest benefit is saving Time! Time! Time! I remember seriously getting into body building in the Mid-Seventies. Body builders such as Arnold, Frank Zane, and Franco Colombu were the tops in my mind and if I could only look like them, fame, fortune, and sex and more sex would be mine. Therefor, I threw myself into training. I followed those ridiculous workouts that Arnold and Franco would endorse in the Weider magazines. Six-days a week, double split, three-hours a day. On some days I would not leave the gym until 2:00 am! Sex and relationships? No time. Once I had that Arnold or Zane body, the chicks would flock to me!

Here was my work-out life's critical moment. I ran into an acquaintance from the previous Spring late that September. All he said was, "Hi! I remember meeting you last April. Good to see you again." It dawned on me that he didn't notice any change in my body. So now I realized it. I sacrificed an entire summer in the gym and had nothing to show for it.

At first I scoffed at the Mike Mentzer workout and the idea of one set per body part. I surely needed a change so I sent-away for his course (Why not? I did the same for the Arnold, Franco, Frank Zane, and Robby Robinson previously). I started high intensity training the Mike Mentzer way, and a wonderful thing happened. I started making gains. An even more wonderful thing happened. I started to have a life. I soon developed other interests such as music, sports, and literature. I met a girlfriend (Whom I would eventually Marry) at a Church function (My prior Sunday's were spent in the gym). I also enrolled in University. Moreover, I kept making gains. I would arrive at the gym and the others were already well into their workout. I would leave and those same dudes were still going at it. Yet I was the one making gains. Rather than those gym rats exploring the Mentzer system they would scorn me. Even after I beat them in a contest, they would tell me that I shouldn't be allowed to compete because of, get this, "My bad attitude toward training." I guess 45-minutes in the gym, once every three days is a bad "Attitude," Six-days-a-week and two or more hours is a good attitude. I soon realized that 12-weeks of dieting for one night of glory on a stage in front of several hundred might not be as good a deal as wrestling five-nights a week in front thousands. The time saved with the Mentzer system allowed me to continue making gains (or at least maintaining)while on a tight traveling schedule.

The crux of my testimony is this. Forget the science supporting which systems- Heavy Duty vs. Multi-sets - garners the most gains. The wisdom of Mike Mentzer works and it SAVES TIME. Lot's of TIME.
