Go get 'em mike!! How long is a standard mentzer workout then? I'm assuming pretty short which must be cool since it gives you more time for your biking!
Ooo and how's the diy machine coming??

hey rossco! hows things? erm it takes about 15mins. lol sounds crazy but its sheer hell, it has to be or it wont work i suppose. i nearly threw up yesterday and im acheing like hell today from like 5 sets :lol:

i still wanna make a machine but its going to cost quite a bit more than i thought, and i just havent got any money at the moment story of mine and many other lives i guess haha going to have to put up with pull ups for a while :evil:

Home setup sounds sweet as mate, good finds !! Looks like you have most of the basics covered there.

Mentzers' books and his writings are gold, I'm an advocate of his ideologies and I'm certain his principals hold up even now, all these years after he established them.

I have his Underground seminars on my hard drive, basically a couple of hours of him talking about training and nutrition. Awesome!
