someone had to mention "schmoe" in this post.  NO. guys back in the day trained calves barefoot to really feel the calves working. it activates much more muscle that way. your toes grip the rounded ( somewhat) foot pad. even squating leg pressing etc is all better barefoot. dont believe me? try it. most gyms wont let you though for "sanitary and health and of course liability" reasons. vince a schmoe?  obviously you have no clue who vince really was. even joe gold ( who was gay) was not a 'schmoe. vince was a no bs kind of guy. he even told arnold that he was FAT   (actually a fat fuck). lol

But these are pictures of people bare footed doing arms and other non calf body parts.  I know plenty about Gironda.  He was a crank, at best.  Possible foot worshipper, which is fine, better than grapefruits.  Just wondering who has the actual skinny.

Unfortunately, no one has it anymore since the actual skinny was auctioned off piece by piece by a dirty rotten liar.

whats the back story. Is it possible the guy got in to financial trouble and just had to unload the stuff. What kind of prices did they go for?  Any screen shots of the auction prices?

Or simply attach a pair of thick bar grips to a regular smith, though nothing beats a thick steel bar

Does it matter? In contrast to most women, free weights age pretty well

I don't know the details, but they seized a lot luxury cars, weapons, phones, laptops and -no surprise- enough gear to create an army of big Ramys
