"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Free Mentzer Books

Tony Williams

Yesterday, while checking my library of weight training books, I discovered I have duplicates of both "The Wisdom of Mike Mentzer" and "High-Intensity Training: The Mike Mentzer Way."

Since many of you have families and budgets are often tight in this economy, I would like to offer the books free of charge to a member(s)of the forum who would like the books but simply cannot spare extra money for books at this time.

Anyway, if you are interested, shoot me a PM. I will pay the postage so you will incur no cost.

Both are very good books with great insight on Mike's thinking...especially in regards to "Wisdom."

i hope im not asking for too much, but would it be possible to 'scan' them so we could all read the books? maybe not the 'HIT the mike mentzer way' because that's still in print and would be copyright, but what about the other one?

I have a compilation of the original mail order courses scanned in. I downloaded from elsewhere but compared it to my original mail order courses and it looks good. I also have scanned in my copy of the original Heavy Duty, the booklet that preceded the book Heavy Duty I. PM me your email and I'll send them.

Heavy Duty Nutrition 15MB
Heavy Duty courses 2MB
Heavy Duty original 8.2MB

The first two I downloaded from somewhere on the internet, don't recall where. The last one I scanned in myself

Perry, is you HD_original the 1993 book or his very first?

I would love to see the chapter on steroids personally.

I have a fascination with people like Mentzer talking about it openly because during my lifetime it has been so taboo.

Still kicking myself for not buying Arnold's original Encyclopedia that has his chapter on it (or Dobbins chapter).

My Heavy Duty original pre-dates the 1993 book. There is no copyright in it.
