Coming back from a couple injuries and losing an enormous amount of weight, Vincent Dizenzo competed recently and bench pressed 530 pounds. I am happy to call Vincent one of my best friends and when he asked me for my opinion on training, I am humbled. If there were ever two people who could live next to each other and be OK with not talking for a year, it would be me and Vincent. We respect the other's privacy and unwillingness to socialize outside of our wives. Build the Moat and They Will Not Come.
