Zane. First time I saw his physique I decided I wanted to achieve those proportions on a slightly smaller scale.

Also interested in why he doesnt like you BTB, I know you interviewed him because I read those and didn't sense any "bad blood."




I think looking at him in this video gives a better indicator of his size. I'd like to keep those proportions, but maxing out natural stats so take off 'X' amount of inches per bodypart and voila.




Also BTB, you might be able to answer this, but do you think he is using the same amount at this age as he was back then? Or simply using a bit or none at all and just retaining the size he used to have when he did use? I know Casey believes that for the most part, you raise your potential after having used steroids past the point of reaching your max natural potential, but it is interesting to think about this.

Tough call. Both fantastic physiques. I know Zane has that great symmetry, but I always thought Mentzer had a beautifully balanced physique too. I think I'll go with Mentzer.

Ahh too bad, he should've realized people would take offense to it though, especially due to his stature.

Chillen.......I can't send a PM since I'm so new so am posting here instead.

Hi,
I was searching for some info on Mike Mentzers work and stumble on this forum and your posts. I'm nearly 52 and noticed you're in the same range....and your pics look amazing. I'm curious if you would share your routine, diet, etc. to have gotten so lean.

About 10 years ago, I stopped lifting and am starting again. I used Mentzers HD methods and really enjoyed greater strength and size. About a month ago, I startd lifting again and using HIT and am seeing good results. But, I let others get in my head and started a 6-day protocol that I hate so I want to go back to full body workouts every 3-4 days.
Currently, I'm 5'10" and weigh 212; approx. 30%BF. I am able to do cardio and have no health issues other than slightly high blood pressure. My last lifts were: deadlift 350, dips +35lbs x 8, shoulder press 150x6. Incline press 250, pull downs 180. All 6-10 reps. Leg press 280.

Sorry for the length and thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide. Best, John

I give the edge to Zane because of the classic lines and over symmetry but for the size Mike has size and symmetry if legs were more ripped he give ole Frankie a run for money. It funny you said that but Zane, When I was in the Navy, the guy I worked out with was one his math students in high school, he showed me a year book with Zane writing in the year book. I went with my partner to Southern California to his home to visit and I got to meet Zane, he was nice but he was so shall I say "weird" he kept quoting Zen and when it came to training it was his way or no way and some what off Standish toward me when I put 405lbs on the bar to squat ,I did learn something from him and used some of idea, but I just thought to myself he was a weird jerk, a great body builder, but something was missing ..... personality. Oh well that my brush with greatness.
