Mike Mentzter “Break-In” Week for Beginners
by Christopher N.
Program Description
“Break-In” your body in preparation for normal Mike Mentzer workout routines, as instructed by Mentzer’s book, “High-Intensity Training: The Mike Mentzer Way.” Training should not be to failure, but somewhat close to it. It is highly recommended to read Mentzer’s book prior to beginning this workout program, as there are many applied concepts you will not be able to apply just by looking at this workout schedule. If you have barely, or not worked out at all in a long period of time, Mentzer recommends less intense training sessions and learning proper form on the major exercises before beginning this training program. This should be a period of several months. Always consult a physician prior to beginning any workout program.
