    I thought I would share this article as it somewhat relates to the stories of Bulgarian lifters popping Dianabol like pez candy, as told by the recent welcome addition to this forum, Glenn Pendlay.

    It is an interesting story, and sheds some light on the beginnings of the drug as well as the beginnings of power racks. Plus, it is written by Bill Starr.

    I look forward to the next installment that will be about actually using isotonics-isometrics and a more detailed take on the effectiveness of that kind of tactic.

    Thanks for that, very interesting. I didn't know Bill Starr had used Dianabol, but his honesty on this subject is kinda refreshing.

    Thanks for the link, that was an interesting history lesson. Essentially "yeah my guys are making great gains using isometrics... oh and d-bol too" lol.

    Good stuff. Ross actually recommends something similar to isotonic-isometrics in Infinite Intensity but he calls the two similar protocols explosive isometrics and static-dynamic isometrics.
