Great Vid
« on: May 27, 2015, 03:27:40 PM »
A very different vid of a calmer CT Fletcher and Mark Bell with some great info.




The sound sucks, for some reason each voice is split recorded into one side only, it's annoying with headphones.

52 minutes? Really?

I saw him at the Arnold last year, he was actually pretty chill. "Da Hulk" was also wandering around, also approachable. The year before the lines were a mile long for these guys.

Maybe it's just me but if I want to hear a guy talking about the sport I want it to be Dorian, Arnold, Jay or Ronnie. These sideshow freaks are all fine and dandy but really I wanted a couple minutes to talk with Layne Norton.

If I wanna hear talk, I'll listen to Layne, if I wanna get pumped. I'll watch CT

I thought the video was good.
Was an interesting tale of what the guy went through plus some random chat that held my attention (and I normally don't care for his videos).

Eating 4 big macs, 4 fries, two apple pies and a strawberry milkshake for lunch back in his PL days? And that was just lunch?  :o

I get what you're saying, CT's become a sideshow freak, however at one time he was a big time power lifter and world record holder.  This video shows a calmer , more realistic side of him as he talks about his past experiences and issues.  Majority of his lifting vids of him screaming and cussing is all part of the CT Fletcher Character he's created, much like actors on TV.  I ran into him a few weeks ago at the Orlando Europa and in person he was truly a down to earth, real nice guy and showed real love and humility for his fans. When his set signing times in his booth were over he still had a long line waiting for him and he walked down the line taking pics and signing stuff for all his fans.

Good vid!  I thought he came across as very likeable.  Funny too!

please dont get mad at me, but who is this guy? haha... I really like what he had to say after 40 mins in. The beginning, I found him an ass, but he proved to be wise and sounded intellectual and comical at the end, great vid good knowledge.
I intend to tell fate its my turn to take the reigns.
