I remember Parillo from the 90s in the old Musclemag. He used to bang on about stretching a lot. Stretch the fascia to allow the muscle to grow or something. I think his son may have gone into it as well as a personal trainer. Parillo Performance or something.

He looks bat-shit crazy in this video though! Forward to about 4:00 people ...

"Don’t lie to me butter bean. We’re taking it up a notch!” ... I think Btb might get the reference.

fascia stretching is pretty common nowadays. lots of PL'ers and BB'ers use it. its the entire basis for FST7 in fact. pump and fascia stretch.

It is very popular indeed. I remember a trainer called Charles Glass picking up where Parillo left off and popularising stretching as well as a bunch of other stuff. He was the trainer of the champs for a good long while.

One of the guys I use to work with use to do bodybuilding and his calves were huge! I asked him what exercises he did. He said he hardly trained them and they just got big from hiking, jump-roping and bicycling.. Not sure if that is the case but, they were impressive.

some people have good genes overall or for certain body parts. my friends calves are huge, he's done 3 calf workouts in 20 years.
i kill mine and they dont grow, but i sneeze and my back adds an inch.

True, I guess we all have our strengths and weaknesses.
