Mike Mentzer style training

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I am little unclear of Mentzer recover period or frequency of workouts. He says train 1x/wk/body part. In other places he says train 4 days later. If the goal is to recover and then grow and then workout again how do you judge when its time to train a body part again?

    You start off training frequently, and as gains slow down you increase the rest period to once per week or whatever you can handle.

    Thought it'd be interesting to discuss the training style of one of the greats.

    I need something for 3 days a week an was considering this...
    This method of training WILL work if it is very different from what you HAVE been doing. That said, it will not work indefinitely because the body needs more variety or it will adapt to the program in a matter of weeks.

    you can rotate your exercises just like you would with regular training and you can get gains for a long time

    The reps, tempos, and volume should also change...as well as the intensity should be cycled.

    No cardio for me... Unless I'm doing some low intensity fasting cardio. I think HIIT is better, tho, but you need too be in the fed state.
