Had lunch with the Russian chick who helped me translate some Sheiko material. I had had hopes of using her to help me get in contact with and interview the actual Sheiko, thereby becoming the American authority on the subject – but he dashed these hopes by resurfacing. I still think this is an elaborate hoax.
You are tall, blond, with a gut, wearing Olympic weightlifting shoes. I was the bearded guy with simian aesthetics, wearing Chucks, beanie cap, Army shirt, giant shorts and tall socks who cheerfully asked if you wanted to use the power rack, then several minutes later, if you were planning on using the 45 lb bumpers. You were surly and responded negatively both times. I just want to be friends. Your workout was deep, high-bar, paused squats for several sets of 135×3, then several sets of unpaused squats for 225×3. Then several sets of front squats for 135×3. Then doing something with your phone for several minutes. (Reading mopeility?) Suddenly you changed into regular sneakers, did several sets of DB hammer curls… and then departed. Oh mystery man, it’s like you read yesterday’s blog post & comments, and wanted to fulfill my desires. Or…were you sent by Wo just to tease me?

When I have a free second I’m going to do something about this blog, my webpage, and my forum to try to make them more organized. Maybe not the forum, I kind of like it as a disgusting monument to my vanity and worthlessness.
Fattaca – Thanks for the Charniga link. I actually did skim through it before but I wasted a good amount of time rereading today. He really hates John McCallum. Okay, the get-big drink is ridiculous, but it’s a little unfair to place even the slightest blame on the guy for the failure of US weightlifting. McCallum did not write for aspiring competitive weightlifters. You can blame Hoffman for paying him. Maybe.
