I got an email today "apologizing" for my name being misspelled in the book (SSTM, Special Strength Training Manual for Coaches), Darque instead of Darqui. Needless to say, i'm extremely honored to be somewhere in that book, pretty awesome. I shot back a big email detailing how much Verkhoshansky has meant to my training, and how i'm planning on giving him much gratitude once I reach my goal of 47" RVJ, just wish I would have been able to actually share it with him. R.I.P

anyway they are sending me a copy :D

Yeah, that's really cool, you're basically part of history forever (and I'm not sarcastic saying this).

Wow! Bigtime congrats, indeed.

I'm a bit curious though: Is this a book Verkho had finished prior to his passing, or is this some Tupac type deal where other people (his daughter?) are finishing it up for him?

i think it's the one he was working on when he passed away, and his daughter/some other people, possibly james smith, helped to finish it.. he already wrote this manual way back, but this is the revised/new edition.






Cool news, in which context are you mentioned and what is the book about?

thanks man.. in the context lance linked, that iso extension stim exercise based on his stim method/stim variants... not sure yet of course, will have to read it, probably only a small thing on it, though maybe he really expanded on it, would be awesome if that was the case.. he seemed very receptive of it back when i notified him of the idea/exercise/results on his forum.

What about a reverse hyper iso with weight?

Or the leg extension iso? Man I did that today and just felt incredible jump afterwards in the gym. Really awake my VMOs up, it felt TOTALLY different. It felt like you attached another muscle to my legs, a muscle that wasn't there before (talk about the lack of natural VMO recruitment :pissed: )

Out of curiosity, what is the Iso Extension Stim? The video doesn't work.
