legitmuscle is off to a bad start

Let's be honest...I don't like this guy...
First things first, he has no respect with the other body building gurus like hodge twins, luimarco, scooby etc. He had vids that was bashing them so badly, and telling them why they should stop making vids.
Second thing is that he has the knowledge, but he doesn't applies the knowledge and yet, he's has no shape at all. I can't even see where the gains are. Hodge twins and the others may not have the knowledge or degree of physiology like what Ian has, but they have is experience. Scooby has at least over 20 years working out, Hodge Twins may have like almost 20 years too.
Third thing that was he mentioned that all workouts are safe especially DEADLIFTS (from the vid that he was bashing the twins). Every workout is risky, even a single dumbbell curl too. I never do deadlifts is because it's really dangerous and I almost hurt my spine when I was trying to lift 300 pounds of raw weight. It's really a DEAD workout exercise, or else why we all called it DEADLIFTS?
So, that's my opinion. I'm not here to bash him, but sometimes he lacks maturity and experience in this field

Never heard of this guy until he was mentioned here. I finally got around to watching a few of his videos. If I have one thing to say, it's that he could definitely do with simplifying things and stop worrying about all the training OCD stuff. He'd probably get a lor farther that way.

I'm not saying one has to be an elite lifter or prime physical specimen to be qualified to give advice, but they did have to put in there time and applied and experiemented with the knowledge they have in some capacity or another.
Exactly. Like Glass don't look real massive (anymore) but he has over the years turned out many top notch pro's. Thats why he can get $500.00+ to train under him.

I wouldn't train under this guy even if I got paid to.

Works for me.

I thought about doing a "meta-manual" where we list all the topics we want to cover in an e-book, then have every member that wants to share their opinion.

We put all the opinions together in a reference manual along with some workouts, and bam. Done.

An e-book written by the forum, free to visitors. How's that sound?

E-book sounds awesome Steve.

If Ian McCarthy is getting a following then fair play to him, everyone is entitled to give advice, it's the people who follow him who have the responsibility to themselves to decide whether or not they will adhere to what he recommends.

However, he really needs to get some lifting notches under his belt so to speak in order to start mocking pro lifters with decades of experience. It's pretty disrespectful IMO to come along and start taking shots at guys who have dedicated their life to the iron.

OK, we'll do this. I think it has potential. Let me gather my thoughts and make a post later this evening.
