I love a spot of strength history. Many (though certainly not all) of the training approaches of past years are just as valid today.

This week we’ll be discussing the legacy of a well-known bodybuilder that Maik looked at recently - Mike Mentzer (original article : http://straighttothebar.com/articles/2012/02/heavy_duty_by_mike_mentzeris_it_the_holy_grail/). Which of Mentzer’s ideas are still useful, and how have they influenced your own training? Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than Olympic athlete, personal trainer and nutritionist +Maik Wiedenbach. Fantastic.

NB : If you'd like to learn a little more about Maik Wiedenbach and his own fitness career, there's a great interview in the March issue of World Physique magazine ( http://worldphysique.com ). Nice one.

And for everyone who’s joining us for their first Gymchat, welcome. Just dive right in, and ask any training-related questions you like. It’d also be great to hear a bit about your own workouts, and how they’ve changed over the years.

See you there.
