I posted some stuff about Waterbury about this time last year and took some crap for it. Of course I later posted some stuff just get under people's skin which I'm sure didn't help, but hey, we've all done stupid stuff.
Anyway, I still think his early writings have validity to them. He kind of went off the deep end when he started advocating stuff like single leg deadlifts, jumping in place for calves, doing 24 singles in a routine, or doing a million push ups in a day. On his website recently, he came up with a routine where you did 1 pull-up, 1 push-up, and 1 lunge on Jan. 1, and by Dec. 31, you were supposed to be doing, you guessed it, 365 push-ups, 365 pull-ups, and 365 lunges in a day.
I think there are still plenty of untrained guys out there that could benefit from training more frequently like he advocated until they reached some decent strength levels. It's kind of funny to me though how the guy hasn't really contributed on a regular basis for like 2 or 3 years, and people always bring him up. Nobody ever seems to bring up guys like Staley, Cosgrove, or Poliquin who I thought were also pretty popular for a while.
