Dr. Ken Leistner Passed Away

Recommended Posts

For those of you here who know of Dr. Ken Leistner, he unexpectedly passed away yesterday.☹️

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

In reality, this site would probably not exist today without the influence Dr. Ken had on me when I started powerlifting.  I found him in PLUSA in 1981 and used to go immediately to his column every month.

He was a huge influence to many....

He had a huge influence on me as well.

I found a few big hunks of scrap steel years ago and still carry them on occasion.

The world will be an emptier place without him.  He was a huge advocate of grip training as well.  A more kind, generous and giving man you will never meet.  He was a friend of mine and I will miss him greatly.  I did my #3 certification at his Iron Island Gym.

Terrible news.

I never met him but have read many of his article over the years.

Long live his legend.

RIP - I saw John Wood's email on this originally.  A loss to the strength community.
