Might as well share my shitty little Mentzer story
 
In 1992 I had just graduated high school and like many, that was when the bodybuilding bug really bit me..was also right when HIT was taking off and on all the mags...

This was before the internet got big so Mentzer was offering phone consultations for training...I called the number and was so excited and pumped to talk to the guru...

Left message and was shocked Mike called me back within 5 minutes...first thing that shocked me was his voice...that little nasal voice..again before internet so no one had heard his voice...

Anyway, he was very gracious with me but with all due repect a little "off"...he started doing his whole ramble about recovery, how everyone is overtraining...he said..."Its like tolerance to sunlight...the negro has a higher tolerance to sunlight...etc"...

He was also very aggressive about wanting me to set up a package of phone consults for some discount price...

I soon realized that with all due respect he sounded kind of broke in the way he was trying to get me to sign up.....looking back now I realize that most bodybuilders are broke but at 18 years old and looking at the magazines I thought Mentzer was a guru god and thought he was probably calling me from some high rise office suite...

But he was just a struggling guy trying to get by...

Still treasure that i talked to him....very influential...RIP

I agree.  He would have destroyed  Bannout (who was good) and Dickerson (who just plain sucked).  Sheit.  Everyone should've destroyed Dickerson.  Most undeserving Olympia ever.  Totally subjective opinion, I know but for the life of the Buddha I can't understand how that Curious George gay porn star won the Olympia and the god-like Bob Paris was denied it with a far superior physique.

Scott / oldschool Did either of you see him competing.

I agree that Dickerson was / is the most unworthy ‘O’ Winner ever
Also as good as Coe was at the 80 ‘O’ how he was tied with Mike
& award a place higher.

I’m wondering if Mike maybe suffered the reverse of Dorian
Whereas I Never thought Dorian was that Good & Didn’t get the hype
From the Pic’s - until I See him & Competed against him,
Dorian was far better than he looked in photos especially as a Pro.

Likewise this Pete Molnar he looks unreal / cartoon’ish in pics on his own,
Although He is a fantastic physique put him in a line up of other World class
Physiques & He isn’t so outstanding,
Maybe Mike suffered in the same way, Outstanding on his own & in photos
Somehow not the same up against his peers.
