David Thanks for the kind words my friend . Patience is a virtue . I didn't have much when I first started training. I wanted 18 inch arms and a 400# bench press in three weeks . It took 7 years . When I achieved my goals my life had changed and the reality of work , family and survival effected the...

Re: resting periods

Standard training for me was a limited # of compound exercises done three times per week. No more then 3 sets for any movement . Each exercise was done to total failure and required a 2 minute rest period between sets. This was my version of HIT training derived from Nautilus information from the ea...

Re: The History of the Filmed Hercules

Crabbe was also sensational in westerns . He made a bunch of horse operas in the 30s and 40s packed full of action and humor and pretty good plots for formula stuff . The only other physique guy to do this came along 30 years later. Gordon Mitchell (Chuck Pendelton) made a string of spaghetti wester...

Re: Who is or was the strongest man?

Strongest man ? If your looking at being fair and specific then you have to segment it into sports and even then there are no clear answers . Everyone's favorite athlete somehow creeps in.

Re: How Should Bodybuilding Progress?

Steve Reeves had the same take on modern bodybuilding toward the end of his life as David does here on this forum. In a rare interview in Ironman magazine he said , " The guys today all look the same , dress in jeans and torn sweats and have rub on tans . Back when I competed you could tell an Eric ...

Re: LOUIS MARTIN

The middle heavyweight class in Olympic weightlifting seems to produce the best bodybuilding type physiques. That would make the template about 5'8"-5'10" and 195-200lbs. Martin , Phil Grippaldi , Bo Johansen , David Rigert come to mind. Louis was a strict presser and one of the first great squat cl...

Re: PASSING OF BILL STARR

Starr was an icon . He was the last guy you would suspect of being one. Visited York in the early 70's with a friend to pick up some equipment and stopped in at the York publishing office and met Bill . The rest of the weekend was a blur of laughs , Yorkton food & drink and college football argument...
