Who did you beat?

Thatís a program I started doing in the 90ís and led to most  of my gains! I put on about 20 pounds in 3 years that way and then plateaued. It is probably the best routine out there for natural bodybuilders.

Either an hypertrophy theory is correct or it is not. I recognize that drugs impact on results but the basic theory remains the same.

Mike and Ray developed great physiques and trained hard for many years. Exactly what they did to produce the most gains is now somewhat unclear.

Both gave talks and training camps so clung to various theories that were different from what so-called conventional training was in those days.

Essentially they recommended shorter, more intense workouts over longer ones with more sets. 3 to 5 sets versus 15 to 20 volume sets.

What is true is that muscles can be retained using protocols they recommended. I doubt maximum hypertrophy will be achieved using Heavy Duty or HIT.

I don't think they were correct re their theory of hypertrophy and volume plus intensity is more what is required.

In Netflix TV Series GLOW, I saw the ultimate Mike Mentzer Reincarnation (washed up Director Sam Sylvia played by Marc Maron)
He's a chain smoker, coke snorter grumpy type, what can I say, they may be inspired by Late Mentzer

less is more...except for drugs

you only need a few sets to stimulate max muscle growth and anything in excess in counter productive

you don't need to eat more than the RDA of protein so most people only needs 50 - 75 grams or whatever the RDA is for your weight plus an extra few grams and you're covered

drugs?

I assume it's a half tab of dbol once ever 10 days or so

right?

I can see it a little.  To me he looks more like the younger version of JSchmoe Weider.
