I have never heard of the guy.
I’m not sure whether or not you’re joking, but if you’ve really never heard of him, that’s too bad.
I really like the history of strength training and these old time guys are my favorites.
You know what would be cool? If T-Nation, every so often featured an article with a short biography about some of these guys. We would need someone geeky enough to write it. Hmmm, I’m geeky enough.
What does everyone here think? Would this be interesting or just one big snore fest? Cuz I’ll write something and submit it to TC. Don’t make me do it because I will.[/quote]
I think that’s an excellent idea. Up until probably 6 months ago, I was a prisoner to all the Weiderisms and other mumbo-jumbo in bodybuilding mags. I have very little knowledge in the history of strength training and I would definitely like to learn more.
What little bit I have picked up is how a lot of fads today more often than not have been fads in the past.
