Dorian Yates – Into The Shadow – Redux London Real

Professional Bodybuilder and 6 time Mr. Olympia winner Dorian Yates sat down with London Real in January 2013 to discuss how his “High Intensity Training” techniques changed the sport, the specifics of his steroid use and its effects, how he psychologically reinvented himself after his abrupt retirement in 1997, and his thoughts on conspiracy theories, psychedelics, and cannabis.

Mastered from the original tapes this episode has been re-released in a “single camera, single person” format.

Wow wow wow! First off, Dorian Yate’s world is foreign to me and I’d never heard of him. I have now. He is an amazing example of mind mastery and the embodiment of absolute possibilities in action. His frank honesty is straight up and he comes across as solid, dependable and trust worthy. Dorian is a teacher who has many messages worth hearing. Thank you for sharing this fascinating interview with us, it certainly has shifted my perspective! Well done!
