Hi Vern-  Yes sir I have worked with Zach Clayton.  He has  a very bright future here with us.  One of our weight room favorites.  I read your blog every day and have used your Gambetta Lunge Series for years with our players here.  When Zach first got here he said "this looks familiar...."

Coach, would you mind refreshing my memory as to your reasoning behind why you don't like the manual glute-ham raise exercise? I wanted to quote you the other day but couldn't remember the specifics you discussed in a discussion a while back.

Coach Gambetta,

My name is Melissa Boldt and I am currently a Graduate Associate at Springfield College. I just wanted to share with you that I really enjoy reading your blogs on this network and have followed for quite some time now. I must say that you have by far the most intriguing and intellectual dialog and I see things through similar eyes.

 

Melissa
