"I only put my faith in God- and heavy lifters, heavy lifters like you, Sam." Quote from "Muscle, Confessions of an Unlikely BodybuilderK by Sam Fussell. Whatever flaws the book had, it captured the spirit of this section IMO. And I nominate that quote for its byline. I think he (Lamar) was dead right on that one.

Confession...I trained with Sam at Brignoli's Pasadena. The book is 60% true and 40% poetic liscense. The characters are 90% real.

ABP....I dodged a bullet and fortunatly was not one of Sams characters. I saw him on some remote TV station a few years ago pitching the book for a movie version. Sam hated Bodybuilders so much he did the ultimate mock. I watched him go from geek to F'en huge and back to geek only to write about it, intrude on others inner thoughts, insert himself as a 'friend' into their world then laugh at them.
