Dorian Yates: New biography sheds explosive light on bodybuilder’s turbulent past

The books starts off with a short biography of Dorian Yates. Then it slowy introduces the reader to Yate's training principles. This book teaches short and intense training periods and lots of rest.

This training method was the brainchild of Arthur Jones, then was the basis for Mike Mentzer's heavy duty training, which is what Yates used tobased his training.

Dorian put his own twist to it and calls his version Blood and Guts Training. What this book teaches is highly beneficial book to a bodybuilder, especially one who is not using steroids.

Of course Yates used steroids, but his methods will work better for a natural bodybuilder than the methods of most boybuilders, aka High Volume Training. Yates preaches for the bodybuilder to use no more than three sets: He advises a two day split for the body and in a 2 weeks time you will have done six workouts.

It is set up where you do workout one twice the first week and once the second week, and you do workout two once the first week and twice the second week, then the schedule starts over. Yates said this split is near identical to the one he used his first years in bodybuilder. His advanced training utilizes a three day split, but he only used one set per exercise, really putting a lot of effort into intensity. The informtation in this book i give five stars, but i gave it four stars for another reason, All of the pictures in the book, which are black and white, are grainy and almost blurry.

And there are no real good Pictures of Yates really, ther are about five decent pictures of him: Everytime you turn a page in the book it puts a crease in the spine, so if you plan on reading this book a lot you can also plan on eventually losing a page or two.

The cosmetics and durability of this book is why it recieved four stars. Overall, every bodybuilder needs to be familiar with Yates training method no matter how hardcore or serious of a bodybuilder he is.

Dorian is my favorite bodybuilder, so I'm somewhat biased. But the key point here is that you do need both types of exercises for best growth results. Training Volume A very popular misconception that has been around for many decades is that increasing volume is the most effective means of stimulating muscle growth.

If that were the case, you wouldn't need heavy weights and you wouldn't need to train to failure. That begs the question: how many sets should you do? If three sets are better than one, why not do 10 sets, 20, 50, or sets?

Training with a very high volume demands light loads and low-intensity, and it won't stimulate muscle growth. Think about a guy who digs ditches for 8 hours a day. If high volume was so effective, the ditch-digger would have the shoulder, back, and arm development of a pro bodybuilder. His volume is very high, but his intensity is low, as are the loads of dirt in his shovel. Or, consider a man who operates a jackhammer all day at a construction site.

I can stimulate more triceps growth with one intense set of skull-crushers than he can operating that jackhammer for 8 hours. I discovered that one heavy, intense set of an exercise, once I was properly warmed up, was all it took to stimulate maximum growth. Anything beyond that did nothing but cut into my ability to recover and grow.

Blood and Guts

After training with more of a standard bodybuilding volume approach for a while, I had read Heavy Duty by Mike Mentzer. He stated that most bodybuilders were massively overtraining, and that made sense to me.

Once I cut back on my training volume, I saw immediate and significant gains. Some would argue that I was genetically-gifted and would have grown anyway. I am sure I would have had a decent physique no matter what I did, but I know I would never have been able to build sufficient mass to become Mr.

Olympia if I hadn't trained with high intensity and low volume. One major mistake that most bodybuilders make is to increase training volume over time, feeling that this is how 'advanced' people should train. The problem is that we all become much bigger and stronger over years of training, but our ability to recover never improves much. As you are able to work the muscles heavier and harder, they actually need less actual exercise and more time to recover.

Most bodybuilders do the complete opposite, with longer, more frequent workouts.

It's also why most bodybuilders fail to ever make much in the way of gains after their first couple years of training. Just to illustrate, suppose you start out only able to squat 95 pounds for 10 reps; that's not putting too much stress on your muscles and your nervous system.

A few years later, you can squat pounds for 10 reps. That will put a great deal more stress on your system as a whole, and your body needs time to recover.

Blood and Guts

Rep Range This may go against what others have recommended, but I always found the optimal rep range for upper body exercises was Occasionally I would go as high as 10 reps, but never more. For lower body training, I went just a bit higher: reps, occasionally as high as 15 for the leg press. I never felt anything beyond that was effective, because it meant the resistance would be too light.

And just to make it clear, I did train many others with all types of genetics, and these rep ranges still proved to be the most effective. Training Intensity While training at maximum intensity is a good thing, too much of anything can be detrimental. Eventually your nervous and adrenal system would burn out and you would become grossly overtrained.

The remedy that I found for this was to cycle my training. I determined that I could train all-out, to failure and beyond, for periods of five or six weeks before starting to feel run down. At that point, I would take two weeks and stop my sets just short of failure.

This was enough to allow full recuperation and 'recharge the batteries' so I could launch into another intense training phase. Still, it is important to note that without maximum intensity, maximum results in terms of growth can never be achieved.

Rest and Recovery Outside the Gym Rest and recovery needs vary among individuals. In my competitive days, I always aimed for 8 hours of undisturbed sleep every night, plus an hour nap in the afternoon.Mike Mentzer.

Yates is considered to be the first of the "mass monsters" in bodybuilding. All you need is the pharmacy of drugs Yates was on. After training he'd take a whey protein shake and some simple sugars to get a quick insulin reaction. In these video's, Dorian Yates explain his training style and philosophy. To me, bodybuilding was all about creating the best-developed physique I possibly could, and along the way I suppose I did help to 'usher in' a new era in the early to mid-'90s.
