Just read this one another forum:

"Joe Weider is on life support, been in a coma for a week or so. Eddie Giuliani said a week, Lou Ferrigno said a month, not sure how long it's been! Bet a week is more like it, seems like this news would get out."

I thought he was dead so I guess a coma is a step up.

Regardless of the whole "Weider Principles" thing, you can't deny that bodybuilding wouldn't be where it is without he and Ben.

Im not so sure about that . Bodybuilding was something that has been growing at a steady rate for a hundred years . In fact they may have hindered it by the promotion of freak shows .

Actually, I was lifting in my living room. Since the magazines talked about training to failure and I trained alone, I'd put 80 lb on the car and screw on the collars. Then, I'd put the extra cement weights outside the collars.

I'd bench to failure then dump the weight off, leaving just an 80-lb loaded barbell to press back to the uprights.

Of course, since I lived upstairs, the neighbors complained. Then, I simply took the cushions off my mom's couch and surrounded the bench with them.

I had those for my dumbbells, but not for the barbell. I had to use an adjustable wrench.

As for the cement weights, I had the Orbatron ones in kilograms and some other ones (whose name escapes me at the moments) in lbs.

Get well Joe.

I was wondering why Muscle & Fitness and FLEX had tributes to him. I thought he was actually dead like Robert Kennedy of MuscleMag, last September.

Get well Joe the Schmoe.

On a serious note, I wish him well - just the name Wieder brings back fond memories of my first wieder weight gain powder and cement filled weights!
