Picks and Pans Review: The Mentzer Method to Fitness

UPDATED 05/26/1980 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/26/1980 at 01:00 AM EDT

by Mike Mentzer with Ardy Friedberg

A poster of Mike Mentzer, the 1978 Mr. Universe, has been selling like beefcakes, and so, he hopes, will his book. Mentzer's method is a controlled program of body building for both sexes. Top-heavy with theory and skimpy on actual exercises, the book is unclear on which routines work best for women and which for men. It is best suited to those with a gym and a well-trained, if less hunky, instructor. (Morrow Quill Paperbacks, $6.95)
