Just thought I'd share this....
As some here may know, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mike Mentzer back in the late 90s, along with him, I also became aware of another client of he's by the name of Bill Sahli. Bill is a master trainer from Florida with over 4 decades of experience in the field, he reached national level in bodybuilding as a drug free athlete, however retired from competing since he wasn't willing to take drugs in order to place higher.
Bill did have a HIT / old school HIT forum, unfortunately its no longer active, however it was there we spoke, i learned a great deal from this man. Back in the day, Bill trained primarily for strength and size with nothing only compound movements, he referred to (and still does) isolation movements as "fluff", in his powerbuilding book, he explains how he went from 185lbs to 238lbs in a 5 month period. At his peak (at 238lb at 5"5 tall), he hit 800lb on the deadlift, 600lb squat, 405 bench, 405 BB rows, and 225lb BB Curls for reps.
Though this man is not vegan, there's a great deal those looking to maximize strength and size can learn from he's work. Unlike many strength trainers, Bill teach about the importance of stress management, and adjusting volume and frequency etc (rather than just cycling intensity), this comes across strongly in his articles.
Here's are some of Bills articles...http://ezinearticles.com/?Building-a-Hi ... id=3194851http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Two-Day-R ... id=2571168http://ezinearticles.com/?Overtraining- ... id=1068019http://ezinearticles.com/?Revisiting-Th ... id=1121433http://ezinearticles.com/?Stop-Being-So ... id=1029720http://ezinearticles.com/?Adjusting-Vol ... &id=949969
