Re: Boxing Headgear?

Personally, i have not worn headgear since i was a kid boxing in the 1960s,except for a brief spell of kickboxing in the 70s,so i have no idea what, if any,improvements have been made over the years. One thing i will say though is i feel with all of the head trauma in sports it is a good idea for al...

Re: Isotorsion: The Science of Natural Strength and Bodybuilding

Daryll, can you please contact Diane as she had combined the lists.Still a work in progress as there are some contradictions that need sorting,plus of course many more inclusions yet to be filed.
Regards,Peter.

Re: Reg park, speech and posing, Toronto 1988

Jarett, that was fortuitous.So Reg was a fortune teller too and foresaw your son being named Jack at some future date.I am sure even with the dedication to someone else there are those who would still collect the item with Reg's signature.

Re: Reg park, speech and posing, Toronto 1988

That is a great story and confirms what i have always heard about Reg from those who knew him or had contact with him,a class act to the end.Would you mind posting a photo of the shirt? Certainly one that could never be worn.Probably worth a fortune on Ebay, but i bet you would never part with it. R...

Re: The Best Physical Culturists of the 1970's

Kazza, i agree that he was as close to a perfect physique as any.Certainly one that still stands out.What year was it when you met him? I had read he was getting back to serious training and then there was talk of him being poisoned by his wife and others and having him committed.i could never find ...
