I used to train at the same gym, while preparing to compete in the Teenage Mr. World competition, with the a former champion bodybuilder named Mike Mentzer who was always debating lifting ideas with Franco, Arnold, Robbie Robinson, Frank Zane, Boyer Coe, and Ed Corney.
I won the Teenage, Mr. World when the AAU was the only show in town against Rudy Hermosillo, Sly Stallone's old body guard. I am older than dirt now and lived in Santa Monica for a couple of years and trained at Gold's Gym there.
I was a power lifter for a long time and worked with Lou Simmons who runs Westside Barbell in Columbus, Ohio and I still show up there from time to time, and still write for their web site: www.elitefitnesssystems.com.
In the 1980â€™s I was on the staff of Ohio State University's Strength and Conditioning Dept. and ran some NFL, NBA, NHL and ECHL Combine camps. I have performed lectures for the National Strength Coaches Association and SWISS organizations along with www.StrengthPro.com who train the coaches of the professional athletes. Early on I worked with Carl Lewis to help him run faster and Joe Green jump farther. They both competed and were the best in the world for a couple of Olympic and Pan American Gold Medals.
