Dorian Yates won the Mr. Olympia title six consecutive times from 1992 to 1997. He has the fifth-highest number of Mr. Olympia awards of all time and is widely considered to be one of the top bodybuilders in modern history and is most known for his wide back.

Check out Dorian’s new Shadow Line of supplements and appearances, and his autobiography: Dorian Yates: From The Shadow.

In this episode, Dorian and I dig into a lot of topics in relation to high intensity training and bodybuilding including:

  • The influence of Mike Mentzer and Arthur Jones on Dorian’s training philosophy and protocols
  • Single sets vs multiple sets, and advanced techniques
  • The lack of HIT in modern bodybuilding
  • The cause of Dorian’s injuries and how he would have trained differently
  • His bodybuilding lifestyle and daily routine
  • … and much, much more.
