    Vincent Dizenzo and Matt Rhodes Training Seminar

    Vincent and Matt will be hosting a seminar in the near future going over some very important topics for the powerlifters of today. If you are in the area, I would highly recommend going to get some personal instruction from both these guys

    Dizenzo/Rhodes Long Island Bench Seminar

    Vincent Dizenzo and Matt Rhodes will be holding a bench press seminar on Saturday, May 9th at World Gym in West Babylon, NY (Long Island). This seminar will entail a comprehensive presentation by Vincent and Matt, followed by a Q&A.

    The second half of the seminar will involve a hands-on training session where you’ll be coached directly by Matt, Vincent and 500+ pound raw bencher Kenny Hinchman. You’re welcome to bring gear for this workout.

    Note: This seminar will be limited to 21 attendees, and will be sold out well in advance of the event date.

    The seminar portion will cover:

    • Equipped Benching
    • Raw Benching
    • Programs
    • Technique
    • Diet
    • Supplementation
    • Recuperation

    Vincent Dizenzo has recorded both an 800 pound equipped bench and a 600 pound raw bench. He’s a multiple-time world record holder who’s known as one of the most explosive bench pressers in the world.

    Matt Rhodes is a tremendous resource for seminar attendees by bringing that hard-to-find mix of both real-world coaching and athletic experience. Matt also earned his elite lifting status as well as Best Lifter designation in the 308 weight class at the APF Imperium in May 2006.

    I sent my check in last week and called to confirm with Ken yesterday. I'll be there. I live in Nassau County and was real surprised when I saw Vinnie and Rhodes were doing this so close to my house. I can't wait.

    What does being skinny have to do with anything? If that's the real reason why you're not coming, that's just f#$%ing stupid. Why does everyone think they have to be 300lbs to come to a seminar? Do you really think we'll make fun of you because you're not as big or strong as we are? The whole point of the seminar is to get some real life info and teaching out there for people to use. We were lucky enough when we were younger to have access to people and gyms where strength and size were praised. All we want to do is pass some of that info forward for those who don't have the Westside's, or Big Iron's to train at. It may only be 2-3 guys with the same mindset. You can still succeed with 2-3 guys. We trained last night with 4 guys. No one else in the gym all night. We had a great workout.

    Sorry if this is a little bit of a rant, but if your reasoning is really because you're skinny and that's why you're not coming, that's stupid. If it's another reason, just be a man and say it.

    I hope you nut up and come. It'll be worth every bit of time and energy to get there.
