    Skip Hill and Dante Trudel are the only ones I listen to on a routine basis who I have found to be helpful.

    That lady taught me more about weightlifting than any other individual. Ever.
    sounds like an amazing person

    My mentor? It would have to be everyone here on WBB as well as all the Dave Tate and Louie Simmons videos I watch on youtube.

    I'm glad I found this place instead of subscribing to some bobdybuilding mags.

    I started lifting weights again about three months ago and had to build up from the empty bar. I bought John McCallum's book for inspiration.

    It's great! Hands-down the best writer in the iron game. Maybe not the most perfect, modern, cutting-edge advice, but it's good solid information presented in a form of prose generally unequalled in fitness books. I might just start a thread on McCallum actually...
