    Interesting discourse. Could you briefly explain to some of us, the uninitiated, what “cold hand doping” is/was?

    Very interesting indeed. Great information and entertaining stories. Lu Xioajun just made the western world have a heart attack with that photo. Or maybe the heart attack from their McDonalds meals.

  3. The major point in the description of the training programs is that to excel at the lifts, you have to practice the lifts.

      You just gave away Tommy Kono’s tips from his books and seminars that he first stated in Strength and Health in the late ’60’s.

  4. Fun read! Great perspective. Too bad the ‘merican diet is a mashup of the rest of the world’s plus junk food. BTW, those aren’t the Chinaman’s intercostals. It’s serratus anterior.

    That meal pic of Xiaojun is from when he was on holiday at his mother’s who cooked him delicious home food. Not sure what he’d eat on a daily basis at the training facility. From what I’ve seen described by lucky bastards who’ve gone and trained there, it’s mostly meat and rice though.
