Hall of Fame guest list includes Boyer Coe, Danny Padilla & more
May 23, 2010
When he passed away, nine months shy of his 50th birthday, the bodybuilding world lost a giant. Mike Mentzer was far more than just a Mr. Olympia runner-up. To many bodybuilders, Mentzer popularized the "High Intensity Training" (H.I.T) that helped define an era and usher in a new approach to competitive bodybuilding. His battles on stage were legendary and comparisons to Schwarzenegger are still debated by those who feel a Sandow trophy belonged in his trophy case.
On this week's edition of "Pro Bodybuilding Weekly," Dan Solomon and Bob Cicherillo welcome a few of Mentzer's close friends for a special tribute to the former Mr. America and Olympia heavyweight champion. The Hall of Fame guest list includes seven-time IFBB champion Boyer Coe, The Original Giant Killer Danny Padilla plus a visit from FLEX magazine Senior writer (and resident historian) Shawn Perine.
This special tribute edition of bodybuilding talk radio is presented by MuscleTech LIVE on Monday at 8pm ET at http://www.BodybuildingRadio.com. And be sure to catch the replay right here on the "PBW Player" located on the flexonline.com home page.
