'Well,' Mike replied, 'it was back in 1979. I remember meeting my brother in the gym for one of our usual workouts. I think it was the second day of a split-routine schedule, and we were both quite fatigued, apparently still not having recovered from the previous day's workout. All of a sudden it occurred to me that it would be useless to train with anything less than all-out intensity'since that was required to induce maximum growth stimulation. And if, in fact, I had not recovered'and it was obvious to myself and my brother that we had not recovered, as we were both extremely tired'why train at all?

With regards to the diet part..honestly got a little confused, but I enjoyed the talk and also the comments below. I’d like to point out, that from all being said, claories matter, macros have a great input, but it seems to me, that the Fasting practice weights the most in the equation. May be Lawrence will confirm. With regards to protein things become really confusing. We have to “ramp it up”, but as repeatedly stated if it is more than 50% of calories things get problematic. It has the satiety and thermal effect, BUT it does not seem as the preffered energy source…we look for fats and carbs…
For me problematic is the definition Grams per pound of bodyweight or lean bodymass…always confusing and not the same imo.
“Ramping up” for a 150 pound person is one thing and for 220 pounds person totally different in real food! If you are 220 pounds and you consider eating real food and your calories…well things get tough.
I just remembered a quote form Mike Mentzer’s early 80’s book:
“Protein requirements depend almost entirely on your body weight, not your level of physical activity, because it is not used as fuel as long as the body′s energy supply is adequate. The rule of thumb is one gram of protein per day for every two pounds of bodyweight. There is no reason to buy expensive supplements since the amount of protein can be obtained from any well-balanced diet that includes meat, fish, or dairy products. I maintain my weight at about 220 pounds and consume about 60 grams of protein a day, less than recommended for my weight, and I′m still growing muscle…”
From ′The Mentzer Method to Fitness – A Revolutionary Weight-Training System for Men and Women′, by Mike Mentzer with Ardy Friedberg (1980). p. 179.
It’s antiquated, old, but somehow I belive works as well.

Different strength training authors from Ellington Darden and Mike Mentzer to Dorian Yates and Gordon LaVelle have called their system HIT, with each individual having credited Arthur Jones for the formulation of its basic tenet principles. However, there has never been a clear and consistent guideline on how to utilize HIT. Darden advocated full body routines, while Yates recommended to split the workouts into four different sessions a week. Mentzer believed that no more than one set to muscular failure per body part was all that was required, [5] yet Yates and LaVelle believed that more than one exercise per body part is necessary to get complete development as a bodybuilder.

But for the most part I do a split- back and bis, chest and tris, shoulders and legs, and abs 4 times per week and calves 3 times per week.  I take 2 days off per week as a rule. Lately I have been taking off 3 days per week because I feel like I need the rest. I pick a manageable weight, then I get comfortable with it. Here is how I generally pick the weights. If I can do more than 20 reps on the first set, it is too light. If I can do 15 reps on the first set and the last rep feels like, you know, bodybuilding heaven, then I chose correctly. Then I move on from there , increasing the weight slowly as I try to master the weight through about 5 sets. I call them attempts to intimate that nothing is a set, you are never really finished. There are elements to every repetition; form, concentration, energy, presence. When you have brought as much as you can to each rep, the weight makes less of a difference. The bodybuilder is intelligent, he adapts. The weight stays the same. It is what we bring to the exercise that matters, not the weights. So, I pay very close attention to the sensation. I’ll try to explain what I am going for. For instance, when I train my arms, I try to take every ability to leverage out of the movement. In other words, I am lifting dead weight, without momentum, on every rep. Then, I try to build a connection a rhythm between my mind and the muscle I am working. You see, I have very little to think about. When you focus like that, there is little need for counting reps, for worrying about doing it right or wrong.
