Got bored so decided to do 3 front delts workouts in one day haha
Man, I have not seen "Continental Lift" in print since I was reading my father's old York Barbell booklets as a kid. You had some knowledge of the "MacDonald" bar in an earlier vid; is he where you got "Continental" from too?
I was trying to watch and eat supper at the same time, had to stop both when you began dancing, will come back later
I've just trained with him again today actually on squat, if I had read your post earlier I would have asked him, but I know for certain he knew eddie pengelly and Ron Collins. I'm not sure about fitton but I'll have to ask him. I'll be seeing him tomoz so I'll find out my dads coach was george popperwell,and he knew a lot of the strongman also as he opened two gyms at one point. Bill kazmaier was one of the guys who trained at his gym (when he lived in england) and he met jon paul also but only once. Regards powerlifters though, he mentions so many names in his stories I cant really remember them all but there is deffo a good chance if you can name them he knew them haha
Awesome story mate, yes I will ask him, we are back in lockdown over here in the uk again atm so Kim not seeing him as much as I'd like, but I deffo will, if he doesn't know about it he will certainly enjoy the story!Ron Collins was the absolute king @ 181 for a few years back then. Not sure if it was the World Championships one year or not, but it would've been something big for him to appear. A story was passed down to me by my father, who was a fan, not a big name ... it came time for the Deadlift, and Collins decided the knurling on one side of the Bar was too smooth. He asked if the Bar could be turned 180 degrees around so that the hand he deemed weaker could grip the better knurled side of the Bar. His star power did not sway the officials, and his request was denied. When the weight on the Bar got heavy enough for Collins' turn, he came right out, turned himself around facing the back of the stage, and pulled the Bar right up ... effectively showing his arse to all present. My dad was not there, so this is all 2nd hand hearsay stuff ... ask your dad if he has any firsthand knowledge of this moment from when PL was still finding its way ...................

Haha and a tub of hair gel lmao so lucky to have equipment at home, so many people haven't been able to train since April. It took me about 5-6weeks to get mine when the lockdown was put in us but better that than 6 months!Send a comb to 10 Downing St for Christmas, for Boris' sake!
