Mike Mentzer Steroids Cycle

Mike Mentzer is one of the most famous bodybuilders of our time. I consider him the godfather of the modern HIT training movement. While HIT existed before Mike Mentzer, it evolved with his ability to promote and change the HIT regiment. He was a great businessman and had published a good amount of material.

In 1978, Mike Mentzer did something that was never done before, he won the Mr. Universe contest with a perfect 300 score, which has never been repeated (ever!). Later in 1979, he won the Mr. Olympia heavyweight title with, again!, a perfect 300 score. Though, he lost overall to Frank Zane that year; hence, many people remember the Frank Zane's Mr. Olympia titles but forget Mike Mentzer. In the 1980 Mr. Olympia, Mike placed 4th, many feel Arnold Schwarzenegger did not win (should not have won) and Mike Mentzer maintained until his death that Arnold should not have won. Towards the 90s, Arnold and Mike mended their difference and became friends.

Mr. Mentzer was the guy behind Mentzer's Heavy Duty training program, where he did 7-9 sets/workout, 2-3 days/week. His theory was that hypertrophy is related to intensity not duration; hence, shorter, more intense workouts are much better than longer less intense workouts.

Because of his short training schedule, many bodybuilders wonder what steroids Mike Mentzer used. He was said to be a guru of steroid use. It seems Mike Mentzer had hard cycles where he used strong compounds for prolonged periods of time. He believed in being on cycles most of the time and it seems HGH was part of his cycle history. I'll do my best to put together a modern version of the Mike Mentzer steroid cycle.

Why were these drugs used during the cycle?

Many modern steroid cycles are completely different from the oldschool cycles. A lot of guys back in the day didn't have the knowledge, science, access to steroids or diversity of today's bodybuilding world. Hence, the modern version of the cycle is more efficient and will deliver more results.

Dianabulk – used instead of dianabol, it's stronger and delivers stronger bulking results.

Primobolan – primo is used as a cutting drug which helps you gain mass on a low-calorie diet.

Cardarine (GW-501516) – this sarm keeps you lean while helping you shed bodyfat and increase endurance.

Ostarine (MK-2866) – hardening sarm, anabolic and strong, helps you gain muscle mass and stay hard.

Deca Durabolin – bulking agent, used in conjunction with dianabulk to bulk up and gain mass.

Aromasin – an aromatase inhibitor which helps control bloat and estrogen.

N2Guard – a cycle aid to control side effects, make sure liver pressure and kidney pressure is not high.
