Mike Mentzer’s HIT exercise video can now be watched in its entirety. The 8 clips in this series feature Mike Mentzer training natural bodybuilding Markus Reinhardt.
Great video, and it is a system that I have used and produced great results. However Markus Reindhardt isnt completely natural, he admitted to using steroids in the 90s to gain some of his size.
It’s the diet these bodybuilders are fueling themselves with, and I will venture to guess steroids for most of them as well. They all eat more meat than a Tyrannasaurus Rex. Anything that is animal product and cooked is total poison to humans. We are herbivores. True quality and complete protein from vegetables. Every fruit and vegetable(lemons the only exception) have every single amino acid. Mike Mentzer & Dorian Yates are the best at how we should be training, but almost all bodybuilders have it completely wrong on diet. Look at how many bodybuilders have died, have had kidney failure/problems, and look like S*** years after competing. Diet & steroids.
Johnny G, how could you type something so disrespectful? Both Ray and Mike were suffering from different medical conditions when this footage was filmed, and both died soon after filming was completed. The fact that you have no problem coming here and insulting two bodybuilding greats (that aren’t even around to defend themselves) shows just what kind of moral character you have.
Same with the modern era. Dorian Yates now looks like some average Joe off the street. So the question becomes, if the lifestyle is not sustainable, is it healthy? And if it is not healthy, is it good for the sport?
Mike & Ray looked like HIT with a S in front of HIT – For what I know is that neither Mike or Ray really used HIT when getting ready for a contest – It is amazing how the bodybulders of the mid 60’s to the later years look terrible after their competing days are done – But when you see the true greats of the 40’s & 50’s like Reeves, Tanny, Gremik and others when they got older they still looked great – yah for sure Mike & Ray looked like HIT with a S in front of HIT
