It never ceases to amaze me learning about the fantastic feats of strength performed by the great strongmen of the last century.

Legends such as Eugene Sandow, Arthur Saxon, J.C. Tolson and many others would amaze crowds with their accomplishments.

Way before steriods and sports science these legends could perform astounding feats of strength and physical might.

Their “Physical culture” is also an inspiration, whereby everybody was encouraged to develop strength and improve their health and wellbeing.

I’ve added a link to a great site called www.oldtimestrongman.com – which features some of the best pictures and information on how these legends developed their awesome strength.
