Default New interview with Rippetoe

http://www.elitefts.com/documents/texas_bbq.htm

From EliteFTS.

Haven't read it, just saw it. Thought I'd post content instead of comment.

I dig Rippetoe's stuff.

Back to basics is really where many people, including myself, need to be.

Steve,
we've never agreed more!

Hey by the way have you guys seen the video of when I was at Rip's?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqsFkc3UhJ8

This was about 2 days before I showed up at Burgener's. What a long drive that was! At the time I thought setting Rip up with this music was funny, but now its just kind of odd...

Sweet videos. I liked the Burgener video and realized how much I miss hanging in the RBVHS weight room. Very cool place.
As for the Rip video, nice back yard. Was that gravel you were dragging the sled through?

Now, the interview. I said it on the CF Total thread; he confirmed what I knew all along. You need to come at CF with a good strength base, something I did not have because my training in the past focused on endurance training and weak cardio work. My base is going up, slowly, but is getting there.

I think he had great things to say about CF and its uses and also spoke the truism that more people are doing Oly lifts because of CF. I know that it is true for me at least. I never would have done cleans, snatches, and jerks had I not stumbled upon CF two years ago.

His name is Danny Campagna, very nice dude. Yes the trip was enlightening on many subjects. Like driving across north America on a shoe string budget is sure way to screw up any good eating or training habits for months to follow!

On the other hand I did get to train with Rip and Burg, Glenn Pendlay and a host of other fine people! I'm still mulling over some of the things I learned on the trip and figure I will be doing that for some time still.

But I digress, Ron yes I agree with you Rip makes some very good statements. I find his wisdom and humour are refreshing as well. Rip's becoming a good friend I owe the guy a bunch!

Great interview. Some of the best analysis of what CF is and is not appropriate for as well as the significant contribution CF has made to re-awakening a love of the Ol's for many people.
