mike mentzer had a great look anyone on here who think's he was an average bodybuilder is a moron.  the guy could actually write good as well.

It is amazing the impact Mike still has on people after nearly forty years since his last competition.
His detractors have become so delusional that they claim he only looks good standing alone despite
competing on the elite level where he has to be compared to others. He did win his class in '79 at the O as well as placing first place 8 times in various high level shows. And then of course calling one of the most thickly muscled bbers of his time as having a "swimmer's build" is just beyond ludicrous.

Quite the twink standing between two legendary bbers.

he could pull off the vacume pose as well, and one of the very few bodybuilders besides arnold that made money selling training programs. his peers where jealous. they could never do that.

and that clown bob chick who said mike was overated, bob "who has lost every job he had" chick got tore up so bad in that thread, he had to log in with his gimmick accounts to defend himself.

mike had a great look ill argue that with any clown on here

Is there any exact history as to why he ended up in the crazy house for 5 years? I've heard it's because he ran naked through venice and saw ufo:s. But no exact history matches. Anyone?

He did run around naked, supposedly directing traffic ,yammering about aliens landing, declaring the end of the world -- stuff like that.  Some say he also ran into a bank and tried to hide behind the tellers, fearing that Arnold's hitmen were after him.

I don't know if it's related to his time in the looney bin, but Art Jones once turned Mike away from his property for some manner of craziness.

Think most of us have heard various stories about mike's madness
No doubt a good few are false

Never heard the background as to why or what caused this ( other than the 1980 Olympia result )
Any factual diagnosis / information out there..?

I have none but one could make the supposition that a heavy reliance on amphetamines would gradually fuck with your mind.

Possibly -- I have a friend who has drug induced phychosis

It's often caused by amphetamine / cocaine Useage
& Is a good indication of underlying mental disorders

he had a magazine (not sure if it even lasted a year) in 1981 or 1982

I would guess he was bi-polar or schitzo (maybe exacerbated by meth)

It would be pathetic to lose your mind over a stupid bodybuilding contest (and he had lost contests before) and seems unlikely to be the cause

Vince B was friends with Ray so maybe he can shed some light on it

he was working for AJ at the naut headquarters in 83-84 so the breakdown must have happened after

Mike wrote that his drug use messed his mind and judgement up. In the end he was a speed junkie who went off the deep end. He also admitted he felt steroids created mental problems for him. He cleaned up toward the end of his life.
