Mike Mentzer ///

Back in the late seventies, Mike Mentzer was it. His impressive frame, combined with his idea that bodybuilders didn't have to train seven days a week for an hour or two at a time, created shock waves in the industry. Muscle builders began to realize that they, too, could have a life outside the gym.
