Hi there from the South of England UK.
I have had an interest in PC for quite a few years now, so have decided to study it in more depth.

Cheers all,

John.

Well, David Gentle comes from the south of England, so you are in good company there.

Hello John, a warm welcome to the forum.Well if you have an interest in PC, its history and the training of the early pioneers then you have come to the right place.The regular contributing forum members are a small group,yet with many years of experience and deep knowledge of many aspects of PC. David Gentle has probably had more articles published in the top ranked muscle mags than any other author in the iron game. In our small band we have grip specialists such as Paul Shaw and Steve "Mobster" Gardener,the later being world class in Grip Sport competition. Many are lifetime practitioners of Maxalding Muscle Control, progressive Body Weight training,Expanders/Cables,Powerlifting and Martial Arts. Ray Nobile has been at the world class level in Bodybuilding, Powerlifting and Strongman competition, and is available to answer questions on training for all three.I am not sure if you have joined the Library yet, but i would encourage you to do so.It is a veritable goldmine of information regarding the old timers and their training methods,reproductions of rare books, original articles and terrific photographs and training information.Your contributions to the forum will be most welcome.
Regards,Peter.
Peter Yates
