Kicked Out of Vince’s Gym For Bench Pressing

Back in 1984 I was kicked out by Vince Gironda after training at the gym for 3 months.

He got  infuriated that I would not perform the neck press the right way. I preferred the bench press.

He told me it was a senseless movement and if I was not going do what I was told I could get out.

One week later he caught me doing bench press with my father spotting me, he told me to get out.

My father continued to train there and make great gains.
