    Glenn Pendlay has now passed.

    Strength Insider posted it besides Mash, Phil, and numerous others.

    So...

    Yeah, Seb of Weightlifting House confirmed. He was the closest to Glenn of late, AFAIK

    Bummer. He was a hugely influential figure in popularizing weightlifting in the US and beyond and also trained a ton of high level lifters. I remember learning the lifts from his 2010-ish youtube videos.

    And he was only 48. Really makes you consider your own mortality.

    This is incredibly sad. He will be missed. I learned about him when I was powerlifting and following Starting Strength. It was partially due to Glenn that I started weightlifting. I used his videos as a guide to learn the lifts.

    When MDUSA was still open, I was having trouble with my Pendlay barbell, and Glenn called me personally about the issue. I made a post about it and the terrible customer service response of MDUSA, and he felt bad. He was working on the warranty replacement when MDUSA suddenly closed down. The issue I had was with MDUSA as a business, not Glenn, but he seemed genuinely concerned about customer service, especially when it was a product with his name on it. I wish I had gotten to meet him.
