Awhile ago we had a post paying tribute to the great Russian weight lifter and coach, David Rigert. I ran across this documentary clip that has english sub-titles. The translation is pretty literal but not hard to follow. It is fascinating to me. His influence on those of us who grew up weightlifting in the 60's and 70's cannot be overstated.He was, and is, a formidable figure.

|Rigert in his prime was an awe inspiring specimen!|
|No wonder we were all inspired by him!|
