The DVD starts off with Dorian Yates and a brief introduction, explaining his position as the world抯 #1 bodybuilder and introducing us to the intensity we are about to witness. By the time of the filming, Dorian had won The Mr. Olympia title four times, and would later go on to win it twice more, in 1996 and 1997 respectively. At the time of the video, Dorian had been training for 13 or 14 yrs at the time (since 1983) at Temple Gym in England and had been competing since 1985. His early contest history was good; at 226 pounds he was then spoken of as a future Mr. Olympia winner. By the time of the 1990 Night of Champions he was 235 pounds in and September of 1991, he placed second to the unbeatable Lee Haney in the Mr. Olympia Contest. The 1992 Mr. Olympia Contest marked Dorian抯 first win and the beginning of a streak. He then won between 1993-1995, and after a biceps tear in 1994, he still won. In 1995 he won again, as the heaviest man on stage.

In 13 years in bodybuilding, Dorian Yates gained 70 lbs of shredded mass.

Dorian抯 training was a unique style, of the high intensity variety created by Mike Mentzer. Each body part is trained every six days using a four day split. two days on, one day day off, repeat. HIT ?blood and guts ?that抯 what Dorian was all about. He performed one set with maximum intensity each exercise, and several warmup sets preceeding it, then one maximum set to failure and beyond. No ego lifting, no sloppy form. Dorian抯 form was textbook perfect, something which would normally prevent injury, but Dorian抯 high intensity made him victim of several injuries. Sometimes you can抰 have it all.

Dorian抯 training is included below, as well as pictures to go along with the description of his workouts.

Dorian trains for only 45 minutes, but it's brutal! You can feel the intensity! He uses three exercises per bodypart, three sets each. The first two sets are short of failure, while the last one is an all out effort to failure with assistance from his training partner.
He trains in a similiar manner to Mike Mentzer's Heavy Duty style. The essence is that the workouts are quick and intense. They rest just long enough for the other guy to finish his set. They train heavy, in good form, intense, and then they're outta' there!

The following article will give you more info on why High Intensity is The Best Way to Train.

Overall, the DVD was very well done ?made in grainy black and white to highlight the intensity of the training shown. Few other bodybuilders have displayed the work ethic that Dorian has in training DVDs, although there are a few noteworthy, one of the most similar in terms of style would be that of Markus Ruhl as seen in his training video ?Made in Germany.

This DVD is one of the most popular and in many ways has yet to be beat. It is also the only bodybuilding video Dorian produced. It is worth having as part of any bodybuilding video and DVD collection, and especially for any fan of Dorian Yates.
