Training once a week: Science confirmed Mike Mentzer’s method

The legendary Mike Mentzer, one of bodybuilding icon whose methodology training for decades attracted enormous public attention and which was the subject of endless debate. This giant is, in fact, found that almost all bodybuilders have a problem with overtraining, but during the week practicing far less time, while also winning some of the biggest prizes in the sport.
The man who is the first in history had won a competition with the maximum number of points, which in 1978 won the title of Mr. Universe and win the heavyweight Mr. Olympia.

Mentzer’s approach to training is quickly made him even more popular, and has gained thousands of followers to years later their number substantially reduced, because of its drastic reduction of muscle mass, and especially after he left this world too early, in the 49th year life.

His training was brutal, maximum intensity, in which each repetition performed slowly and completely correct. The exercises were performed to the limit, and it is considered that for achieving maximum stimulation of each muscle group separately, it is ideal to exercise 20 to 30 minutes. After such training he rested four days, however, or even up to 7 days to the next.

Although his approach lost a lot of popularity, now the last scientific study has proved that he was right.

Scientific research that included 70 healthy adults, which were then divided into two age groups, clarified is what this is all about.

In the first group were persons aged 20-35 years, while in the second the elderly from 60 to 75 years. During the first phase of the research, which lasted 16 weeks, both groups had three endurance training per week. After that, divided into three groups. The participants of the first group were totally stopped exercising, others have reduced the number of weekly training from three to one, while the third group of participants also reduce the number of training from three to one, but at the same time reduce the number of sets for each muscle group from three to one.

The results showed that the legendary Mentzer found a good approach. In other words, a group of older exercisers, no one has managed to maintain the same muscle mass than before reducing the number of training from three to one, with younger trainees was completely different situation. Both groups whose participants reduce the number of training from 3 to 1, and the number of sets of 3 to 1, the survey are completed with the same outcome, that muscle mass was held still.

However, the measurements after the completion of the entire process of research there was one key difference – with members of the group of young trainees who have reduced the number of weekly training, but who at the same time maintain a complete range of training and have not reduced the number of series, recorded an increase in muscle mass!

It was also the best answer to the question whether the methods Mike Mentzer really has an effect.

Steve Reeves Quote

From interview…

But anyway, I was always encouraged because [laughs] I was growing in leaps and bounds, and it seemed like it was impossible to fail. So I was an easy gainer in that respect. I think it was my knowledge of exercises and the deep concentration I had. In other words, I tried to get a real good line of communication between the brain and the muscle. In fact, my saying is, No brain, no gain-not, No pain, no gain. I would concentrate very deeply, so I would be working that muscle only and get every rep out of it possible. Also, I would do my exercises real strict, real correct. You know, slow and perfect form-no cheating.
