I just watched his entire HIT video this weekend for fun. Love him or hate him, I miss old Mike.

A very influential man who left many weak, average bodybuilders in his wake. Dude can't deadlift 315 more than twice? Really? He's making crossfitters look strong.

I wonder what Mike would advocate these days if he was still around.

The way he was headed, probably;

Enter a meet.
Take one attempt at each lift.
Go home and take the rest of the year off.
Make a plan for next year's PR attempt.
You will continue to grow and get stronger each year.
This is proven by the PRs set at each meet.
Anything faster is not optimal.

Jesting of course. He's too easy to pick on. . .

You'll have Mike spinning in his grave!

Only once though, and superslow...

He might have latched on to intermittent fasting an advocated only one meal a week.

Perhaps he'd perform the Cube method on his moustache and end up with a goatie.

What I found interesting while watching the video was the fact that rarely did a set go over 4-6 reps because the trainee simply couldn't take the pain. No matter what the weight, he was done in a matter of reps as TUT proceeded to kick his ass.
