Gabriel-- I lived in MN for 2 yrs. I trained at a few different gyms during my time there. There was quite a few lifters lifting back then. Compared to where I train now in Las Vegas you could call it a meca! Not saying much for here. Back to the point... I know who you are talking about. I will remain pc and not say who. They are a unique bunch there. I was living with Antonio Krastev and training 2x day 13 w/o per week. I was making incredible gains and when he would try to tell/help the other lifters/coaches 99% were very "not open minded" about his advice. He would ask me all the time "do they know I was a World Champion? Yet they don't listen to things that we(Bulgarian national team) tried in training and found not to work. Why???" I had no explanation for this behavior! I would listen to every word and absorb as much as I could. Brian Derwin was one of the few there that was open minded. It is a shame that there are people involved with our sport that have that attitude. Purists that can't even imagine doing Olifts as supplemental to other strength sports. Yet the same guys will help teach wrestlers and bball players how to lift to be better athletes. I don't understand, but sympathize. Is the gym in lakeville still there? It was small and had low ceilings but was pretty decent.
