I was on Facebook last night and a status came up on Nick Mitchell’s site (I wont name it ) about how to squat 1000 lbs. They showed a video of some little scrawny guy doing exactly that. You press a link and it takes you to a seminar that they want you to sign up for about how to squat .
Now the problem with this video is that they are using reverse bands. Not easy to see first up but after a few looks you can clearly see that this is a video of someone training with reverse bands.
Someone wrote how can this guy with chicken legs squat that? I replied with words to the effect of, " He didn’t . He used reverse bands. Perhaps they were just having a joke."
I get back on today and my post has been deleted and I can no longer comment on Nick’s site. Pretty upsetting as I read everything he puts up and have bought his 2 books.
I have no idea why he has blocked me as it is obvious in the clip that the lifter is using reverse bands and no way on earth a little skinny guy could ever in his wildest dreams lift 1000lbs.
So I just think I’m so lucky that I came across TNation all those years ago.
That kind of shit wouldn’t happen on here yet for some reason Nick is happy to have it on his site.
Treating the readers like idiots is not on.
Anyone else have a similar experience?
