Most of us, including myself, have never met (or even spoken on the phone) with Karl Hoffman (aka nandi12), but all of us who found out this week that he had passed away felt a huge sense of loss and sadness. Karl was one of the best minds we had in this industry. Not only was he brilliant, diligent with, and respectful of, science, but he was ever honest, unbiased, and objective. And, he would always conduct himself in a way fitting a gentlemen, even in the most heated discussions, and even with far lesser gentlemen. He just seemed to love science, with no ulterior motive.
We just do not have many like him, and this is a huge, huge loss for those of us who care about honesty and bodybuilding science. And, I care about it, deeply.
Karl, you left a great mark on our industry, which will continue to grow and make itself known, and you left a great mark on many individuals, including myself, and the entire
Mind and Muscle team. You will be missed.
