He has plainly stated he no longer lifts because " its just not for him" when he did lift he never seemed to have ever reached any success while lifting anyways. Marathon running can be impressive , but i dont see where that plays into strength/physique athletes. Lets be honest 95% if long distance athletes look like starving 3rd world citizens, where does that fit into body recomp? Im sure if they would learn to eat that might change.

I am not attacking your opinion this is just how i see it
