Review by

Mike Mentzer was the big man before Arnie came onto the bodybuilding scene. He is as much philosopher as he is bodybuilder and his ideas on the mind/body balance have been pivotal in the way many of the great bodybuilders operate. His ideas on intensity and speed being one of the most important aspects of the workout have evolved my routine to great benefit. If you like your slow, steady, grinding workouts, don;t read this book.
