People like specifics on these topics, so if we can encourage that
What's the most impressive feat of lifting you have ever witnessed in the gym?

Do you feel that lifting is just a hobby, that your life revolves around your lifting, or that your training is interwoven with your lifestyle? (does your methodology extend into the world outside of the gym?)

In what order would you rate these in importance: lifting, diet, supplementation, sleep, and drinking? ()

Just my thought on the whole deal.

First of all, brilliant idea, Chillen. I like the way you're thinking here. On the other hand, I, for one, detest reading "canned" Q & A interviews. I think a better way to go (short of Silverback's podcast idea) would be a closed circuit PM style interview. That way, you could start with the basic questions like you've proposed, but allow for some flexibility depending on responses to the formatted questions. Once the PM interview is done, then post it up on the forum. Might be too much of a headache, I know, but it's just my thought on the whole deal.

Anyway, I'll leave it alone, and look forward to where this is going. I got my popcorn ready.

That was my original plan, and one in which I do not mind doing.

We still need a couple more volunteers for an interviewer. Anyone mind being a volunteer?

I PM'd Rich Knapp, and his personal interview will be next. In this interview, I will PM him the questions, and he will PM the answers back to me, and I will post the interview in the: Interviews (Round table).

I am really going to enjoy this interview with Rich, he is someone very special in which we all should get to know better.

Peace and happiness to all of you.

Rich I will be sending you a PM tomorrow, with the Questions.

Also, I have other ideas I want to share and get opinions on.

Again, does anyone want to volunteer to be an interviewee?

I can do podcasts via Skype from time to time if folks are interested, but I would like all the questions beforehand.

I'd interview someone, but I'm not very good at it. haha And I don't think I have enough experience to warrant any sort of useful interview of myself.

We can work together as a team through PM, E-Mail, and whatnot, and come up with a core question nucleus once we pick the forum member to be interviewed so we can ensure the questions are tailored to the individual member. I appreciate, sincerely, you wanting to give your time volunteering for a good cause.

We now have three interviewers: Myself, Steve, and you.

Much appreciated. I will be in touch.


Best regards,


Chillen
