Looks an aweful lot like self-promotion to me…[/quote]
Are you saying that Rick Hussey, the owner/coach of Big Iron Gym, one of the strongest powerlifting gyms in the world, made an account on T-Nation to troll and self promote? Or am I reading that wrong?
If you are saying that, that is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard.
I once gave Rick Hussey 20 dollars for a walk in workout that costs 10 dollars, he didn’t give me change and I was far too intimidated to ask. That story is completely irrelevant but true.[/quote]
At $500 a pop for 10 week programs, it makes sense to post that on one of the biggest, most tween-filled powerlifting boards on the net. Catch even just 1 dumb kid and you made $500 for a 10second effort. If that’s the dumbest thing you ever heard, you must be surrounded by the greatest geniuses on the planet.
Look at the kids post history.
What you are suggesting is that a cancer survivor in his 50s (60s?) made an account back in December, posted in the most random collection of threads possible, and waited 8 months to strike up a conversation where he misspells his own name, doesn’t mention his phone coaching programs and crowns himself a genius. He did all of this in hopes that someone might find their way to his website and might find the page where he has personal coaching and that person might hire him.
That sir is in fact an incredibly stupid thing to suggest.
