Thanks for posting this. That was an awesome conversation.Going to be listening to the other shows for sure.
"I won Mr Olympia 6 times, and it was a huge part of my life, but there are other things in life." - Dorian YatesAwesome.
Obviously, 12 yrs of steroid use made him dumb, agressive, closeminded meathead. Oh, and he's also a junkie.What a fucking cool dude!
That was aewsome,i would never have thought he'd be as 'Anti Establishment' as me!....His opinions on 'The Establishment' mirror my own exactly.
What?! He is not going to tell us about this new exersize for the teres minor definition?
Always been a big fan of Yates...intelligent guy. He's one of those bodybuilders who was/is as strong as he looked too. You can tell he put a lot of thought into what he did and was different to a lot of bodybuilders in his approach and demeanor. Would be awesome if you guys could get him on the podcast someday Paul.
Definitely a cool interview, but am I the only one who got lost with some of the conspiracy theory stuff?
Your probably not alone in not understanding it,especially if your young,naive and still part of the group of donkeys that are 'chasing the carrot on a stick',metaphorically speaking.
So the US government brought down the twin towers, and tap water calcifies some third eye in your brain...? Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the interview. I'm just saying that some of the stuff he was saying towards the end was pretty far out there. But maybe maybe it's my age, naiveté, and the fact that I am a donkey chasing a carrot, that has prevented me from jumping on board with some of those ideas.
Cool interview, maybe all the weed smoking and hallucinagenics have made him paranoid re: conspiracy theories? Saying that, I do agree with his thoughts that you must question things.
Dorian is awesome, but it's a bit of a bummer to find out he's a truther.
Holy crap, what a great interview. Really saw the human side of him. I really appreciate how he was completely honest and laid everything bare.
He went off a bit on the "spiritual world" part, but the rest was pretty awesome. The drug part isn't surprising (I heard he also used steroids once or twice, but didn't inhale :)). It's hard to imagine Dorian Yates on shrooms.
By far the coolest guy in the bodybuilding world.
So, off topic but - got your new shirt today. By far the softest and most comfortable shirt I've ever owned. Not to mention it looks BA. Awesome product Paul.
Glad you like it man! It took me a while to finally find a shirt I felt like was quality enough after the last batch.
Thanks for posting that interview. Finally managed to listen to all of it and found it extremely interesting, especially the stuff about Arnold and Mike. Fifty year old Dorian still out training 25 year olds - brilliant! What a down to earth cool guy.
