I had never heard of it, so i typed it in google search. Got a several pages of material, all going through exactly that.

Don't tell me you actually tried googling "but didn't find results".

I also never heard of it so I googled it. I'd recommend the same to you. Either way I wouldn't recommend this routine. I would just stick with a program proven to work.
It appears that Mike Mentzer created this workout. I'm pretty sure he had some fancy supplements to help him achieve his look.

I know there is one explanation I can not understand in "Mike Mentzer" notes... By the way I have checked google before you guys recommended it.

It's basically just a variation of a routine-style that, much in thread with MM's training philosophy, is super minimalistic, low volume and relatively high intensity. It aims to rely on hitting as many muscle groups, with fewest amount of exercises possible.

While Mentzer was an accomplished bodybuilder, and his principles definately have the ability to put muscle on people, it just isn't optimal.

What is MM marked in bold?
