An interaction with Mark:


Dude: Rip, please come to London.

Ripp: Probably can't make it: U.S. martial arts expert banned from entering Britain... because his 'kill or be killed' teachings could incite vigilante violence | Mail Online

Another Dude: F*ck London. Come to Wales.

Ripp: I was in Scotland the week they rounded up all the private shotguns. A very sad day.

Just watched Mark's deadlift coaching video online a few days ago... implemented a few of his suggestions..... made a huge difference .. way less lower back strain.

Rippetoe pokes fun of his article on T-Nation: "Complete with the standard T-Nation title, blurb, and pictures."

He's an irritable and peculiar geezer, but he - albeit indirectly - got me into "proper lifting", all of a year ago. Grateful for that.

If not for him, who knows, I might still be sitting at random machine after machine, supplemented with horrible cardio, and calling it a day.

Thought free weights looked "dangerous". Ha. Then I read what he had to say, and it made a lot of sense. Still does, mostly.
