Re: Bill Pearl 89

Yes, Bill Pearl has a well-deserved reputation for being a gentleman, as well as one of the great bodybuilders of all time. I had the pleasure of meeting him during the mid 90s, at a Club Industry trade show in N.Y.C. He was representing an equipment company, the name of which escapes me, and he was...

Re: If you could only do one.

Re: Britain's Strongest Man

Very nice video. I've recently seen a few Britain's Strongest Man on one of the cable sports networks. I was just flipping through the channels and came upon it by accident. But these older videos are great to watch. I could watch them all the time and never get bored. Just like the old WSM from the...

Re: DR.KEN HAS LEFT US.

It is, indeed, a sad time for the Iron Game. I had the pleasure of being a member of Iron Iron Gym in the 90s. And it was an honor to get to know Dr. Ken. My only regret is that I wish I had gotten to know him better than I did, for he was, truly, a remarkable man. His knowledge of Strength, and tra...

Re: BACK TO THE BENCH

Hi Peter. Are you still using the same rep scheme? I always used to avoid high reps. And warm-ups used to consist of one light set. Now, for the heavier movements at least, I do an extensive warm-up. Just getting the blood flowing, and the area warm allows me to train hard, and not have to worry abo...
