    Just the usual Rippetoe hogwash; - Just shut up you silly physical therapists, you are all fraudulent since you are using inferior isolation exercises for rehabilitation of injuries! What your patients really need is to get under the barbell and squat 600 pound, that will cure everything, LOL…
    Whoever fights trolls should see to it that in the process he does not become a troll - for when you gaze long enough into the computer screen, the computer screen will gaze back into you!

    Gee, Gorbag. It's almost like Rip knows you.

    leave gorbag alone. i feel badly for a person who he hates rip so much, yet takes the time to read the article and comment on it. gorbag needs a hug and a friend. he just wants to be loved.

    Good article.

    PT advice for most people is similar to the typical dietary advice from the medical community.

    We are making progress. Gorbag has now identified himself as the King of Trolls (his sig). We are now past the denial stage. Soon, healing might begin...

    Hmm, seem like the usual rat pack of Rippetoe nut huggers has found their way to this thread! Well, RIP get talked about, and all publicity; good or bad, makes his bank account even bigger, so I am indeed doing RIP a favor by commenting his hyperbolic and rhetoric articles that he occasionally writes for square headed wannabe muscle heads, like the posters above…

    if gorbag keeps up with his aggression and name calling, i will be reporting his posts, and i suggest you all do the same. disagreements are one thing, but they always lead to insults, aggression and name calling. personally, i don't think there is any place for that on this forum.

    For which I'm sure he's grateful. You're too kind.

    It's pretty much a guarantee that if there's a strength-related thread with the words Starting Strength and/or Rippetoe, that Gorbag will drop in to troll, strawman, and mislead. He's probably the biggest source of misinformation on strength training on this forum. I don't know what it is, but he certainly has some kind of a personal vendetta against Rippetoe.
