Here’s an iconic shot of eight-time Mr. Olympia Lee Haney by perhaps the best photographer in the biz, Michael Neveux. But it begs the question: Was Haney a genie?…
Not a genie but perhaps a genius when it came to training for ultimate mass—at least in one regard: avoiding injury.
The man is now in his 60s, still trains hard, and has zero injuries. His famous quote says it all…
Exercise to stimulate, not annihilate.
Great advice. Consider that many Mr. Olympias who trained with mega-heavy poundages can’t train without severe pain. In fact, a number of them had to retire early and some are nearly crippled.
Here’s one of Iron Man’s most eye-popping covers back when Steve was editor in chief (another great Neveux shot)…
We suggest getting on the stimulate-don’t-annihilate bandwagon before it’s too late. Start emphasizing the biomechanically correct best exercises for each muscle in your workouts pronto….
Also, integrate the STX method to build mass with moderate poundages and short rests. It packs on muscle safely, stimulating multiple muscle-fiber types—from slow-twitch to fast-twitch—with minimal damage to soft tissue and recovery ability…
