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.
