My work out consists of a strict, every odd week work out, where I grab my 20 lbs dumbells and do nothing but arm curls. Please...Yahoo Bodybuilding Svengali....SAVE ME!!!
Hhaha, I am laughing my booty off after reading that post raven. Why did u call him a saviour anyway? There is only one saviour, and u know that U might want to increase ur protein intake from 4 to about 93 by eating beef links

Talking beef links?

Hey Apoc,

I'm really having problems here. I was relying on TTWarrior to save me! He said he was going to come here to help revamp us. I think we all could probably benifit from his Yahoo bodybuilding advice.

I don't know if I'd eat beef links for extra protein, I understand that you can get 0.1 grams of protein in a can of diet coke, so...if I just drink 100 cans of diet coke a day, I'd be getting 10 extra grams right there! Hmmm...nevermind, I bet you that regular coke has even more! I emailed TTWarrior for help, but for some reason he hasn't responded.

I was hoping to have Arnold Swartzenegger's upper body and Tom Platz's lower body by next week (when I go to the beach), but without TT's advice I have to settle for Tom Arnold's upper and lower body!!!

Lets hope you are some troll, using someone elses name for fun

I helped you out in a thread earlier, http://www.mikementzer.com/

You mispelled his name in the topic, and you mispelled it in your last post. And this is your IDOL.

As you can tell, Im in a bad mood today, and I believe you sir - are an idiot.

As I posted before,

Dont know where you get more posts in one day on your yahoo groups. I already posted how many total members you have on each. Lets look at the stats on each.

no, its just that we all believe that your bullshitting us and yahoo groups have a horrible reputation with the members here. how about you give us a "Sample" and bring 15 of your most knowledgable members from your groups...(if this is ok with the rest of the forum that is) if we are impressed then maybe we will be willing to believe you. no offense but it seems to me that we are hearing alot of talk and no real results, if you train all of these people through Email why not help out with some of the questions posted here, show everyone what you know. and your constant "please feel bad for me lines like" youll leave us if we say arent going to work...we arent just going to feel bad for you, and start kissing your ass. its obvious that everyone makes spelling mistakes also, but once again if your going to tell us all about all of these people that you help out daily...why not help out some people here and add some posts to your total of 7?

I know I already posted this before but got no response. HIT'ites think their way is God, which it isn't. Probably a shitty idea to put a thousand HIT'ites on here all saying to only workout once every 4 days.

5.The routines given work GREAT for many people.......for a short time, and then quit working......no explanation is ever given how to get past this.
6.His diet recommendations are past the point of belief and just DONíT work.
7.His statement that we all as humans share the same physiology and thus all require the same loading protocol is just the lamest thing I can imagine. And the sad thing is a very long time ago, I read it and believed it. Pretty stupid.

There is nothing wrong with very low volume training providing you respond to it, but the way Mike presented it, just gets one started down the path and then leaves them stranded. I knew alot of experienced trainees try this and fail.

Mentzer's HD2 template basically had quirky frequency setups in his routine. For legs and back, he would have you work out once every 12 days. But the upper torso would be worked twice over a 8 day period, and then given a 8 day layoff.

What this usually meant was that both the back and legs were significantly deconditioned session to session. This, in addition to working with new PRs for legs and back, would guarantee significant microtrauma during each session. And because we're talking about a very low volume one-shot, it's not likely the muscle's resistance to future bouts would have been adequately developed anyway. Thus, each growth response would have been very significant and possibly sustained longer than the 36-48 hour window.

It should also be noted that cardio was strongly frowned upon with his program. The HIT conventional wisdom at the time was that cardio ate up gains, not only glycogen storage. Here, this was somewhat true. Due to HD (and 3-way split routines were designed in general) very, very strong reliance upon a significantly deconditioned state to elicit growth, any amount of serious physical activity would significantly hurt potential gains. Looking back, it's probably the rise of the MWF split in the 90s that begun really demonizing cardio as this mass-eater. (Metzner) We all know that is bullshit because all you need to do is to take in more calories than you expand doing cardio to continue to grow.

The other thing is, general arm and upper torso gains, strength or sizewise, were not that great with HD2. People usually saw great gains in the back and leg work, but the arms were the first to taper a bit. In fact, I think the static contractions were introduced mostly to bump up arm development. (Though to his credit, Mentzer recommending hitching the stretch reflex in his movements too.) And again, the conventional wisdom was that, well, arms are a smaller bodypart and need more time to grow. And some people later on reasoned that arms didn't grow that much because the frequency was higher-than-optimal in his given template. People noticed that it was harder to continuously increase their bench press on HD2 whereas the legs and backs flew right by.

The problem was two-fold in his arm exercises. He chose peak contraction-style exercises, movements like lateral raises and tricep pushdown, which can induce a lot of stress (thus slowing down strength gains), but is often no better if not inferior to the bench press and other movements in producing microtruama.

Talking Sleazy to give all admin privillages over to TWarrior?

Is there any truth to the rumor that Sleazy may be handing over all rights to the website to TWarrior and his squad of experts?

I for one am sick of being "small" as he posted. I require TWarriors help to get me all boosted up with 6 workouts a month! Help me TWarrior, you're our only hope!

(Don't you guys think we should let him be the admin just for 1 day so we can all laugh our heads off?)
