What was his handle on him in the limited time he posted on here, sigi777 or something like that? Glenn will be missed.
The cool thing about training is that becoming more sexy is just a side effect........

sigfrith777 or something like that.

Glenn was a lifter's lifter and coach, and I too will miss him. His stroke diminished him somewhat, but he recovered. But the whole thing with Muscle Driver USA was weird, here he was, Pendlay bars, Pendlay bumpers, Pendlay DoWin shoes, then nothing.

Well, there was that whole thing with the obnoxious wife beater who Muscle Driver dropped as a sponsor because he was a horrific human being. Not sure why Glen continued to support that train wreck. After the incident at our state meet, where I was a ref, and the asshole in question posted videos of him trying to mount a revolt, muscle driver let us know that they had already gotten rid of him. And USAW was forced to make an actual "no slamming bars" rule, which is just fucking stupid if you think about it. It would be like having to make a "don't intentionally shit on the platform" rule.

Plus, there was this whole weird era during this time when there was an effort to monetize weightlifting. Muscle Driver was in on it for a bit and then I think the whole thing became distasteful, the butthurt nation was born where slamming bars was considered a good thing, and everyone in weightlifting went full retard.

I kind of dropped off the scene soon after all that went down. It was gross.

I never really knew him. He wrote great things, a lot of people really respected him, and I heard a lot of good stuff about him, but he was always surrounded by assholes when I saw him so never really had a conversation with him.

Jon North didn't help. Nor did Donnie Shankle and his issues

Well, regardless, I'm sure his family is in a lot of pain. Peace be with them.
