lots of louie

About 40min of a talk by Louie Simmons. I'm about half-way through. The best quote so far:

"If I had olympic lifters, we would have gold medals in America."

Talk. Talk! Fred Hahn has said much the same.

Re: lots of louie

The pulling with the feet when box squatting was pretty interesting to me...such important little details.

Re: lots of louie

Hey John,

I don't know who Fred Hahn is?? Either way, of course, talk is talk and you are right. LS, though, does have a demonstrated record of producing unbelievably strong people and implementing unique training ideas (I'm not sure he would have claimed to invent any of them since he often gives credit to the European stuff he's read...he did invent the reverse-hyper however).

Your new mission in life is to find the rest, for my sake. Even better if you can find a section on Deadlifting. Those 2 are are my lift (Squats and Deads).

Re: lots of louie

Haha...I wish.

Here's a bunch of Louie articles (including some specific to deadlifting):

Not as much fun as seeing him talk, but it's a start. There's also lots of good stuff on elitefts (founded by Dave Tate, one of Louie's main people).
