Since there are no tricks or drugs involved, the strength that r
  4. This lift was done with no straps, no belt and using a double overhand grip making the lift much tougher. Paul Anderson was one of the strongest lifters of all time. RIP Paul Anderson (1932 - 1994). When I made the video I honestly thought Anderson was lifting 825 lbs on the last pull. However...Due to an eye-witness at the above event, it was probably 735 lbs to be precise. Keith Greenan has stated the following: From Brad Reid...

  7. 1954 Interview with Strongman Doug Hepburn By Ray Beck On the 24th of April, 1954, I interviewed my friend Doug Hepburn and asked him some of the most frequently asked questions concerning himself and his training. Some of the opinions Doug voiced may surprise and even shock the gentle reader, so please bear in mind that these are the opinions of Doug Hepburn and not necessarily those of the writer or this magazine. I am using the Q & A format, quoting Doug directly. Q: How about a few vital statistics, Doug? A: I’m 27 years old, weigh 296 lbs., chest 57½ norm
  8. Small Hands can be Powerful (1957) By Jack Delinger (1926 - 1992) Some of the strongest men have small hands; many thin men have large hands. When you shake hands with a fellow you often become conscious of his grip or the size of his hand. Some will give you that “death-grip” which I, myself, have many times experienced; whereas others merely hand you their limp fingers which feel like a cold mackerel. And yet, there are a few fellows who are so self-conscious of their strength that they want to impress everyone with their tremendous grip whenever they greet you.
  9. 1997 Interview with Maurice Jones From Keys To Progress By Randall Strossen (Editor of "The Complete Keys To Progress" book and owner of Milo Magazine) * If you haven't already read an article from 1941 about Maurice Jones, click here. This book contains John McCallum's (photo of John McCallum pictured above) original articles which first appeared in "Strength & Health" magazine, which ran from June 1965 through to November 1972. Some of these articles referred to the mysterious muscle character, Maurice Jones. From the book... Chapter: The Ti
  10. Train for Power - Part 2 (1954) By Reg Park Since writing Part One a number of incidents have arisen which I feel will be of interest to our readers. They are as follows: 1/ I received a letter from Al Murray advising me that he had prepared an article, "Body-builders Can Be Strong," which was prompted by the trend in the London area amongst the body-builders. 2/ I hit an extremely good spell -- making the following lifts (1954): 550 squat 2 reps 510 squat 5 reps 500 bench press 270 press 3 reps 270 press behind neck 2 reps
  11. Train for Power - Part 1 (1954) By Reg Park Today physical culture has more followers than ever before, and in consequence the progress of the past few years has been amazing. Weight-lifting (read "strength" here) records are constantly being broken and the standard of physique has also improved. Unfortunately, however, bodybuilding and weight-lifting are for the most part regarded as two distinct sports, and it is rare indeed that you find a bodybuilder with REAL POWER or a weight-lifter with a PRIZE WINNING PHYSIQUE. By power I do not necessarily mean that one sho
  12. Doug pressing 370 lbs in the early 1950's, which was above the world record at this time. Photo by Ray Beck. Watch this great video on Hepburn....LEGEND!

  13. I don't recall ever seeing a photo of Doug Hepburn as a child but I discovered a little gem from this site. This comparison photo I created shows Doug as a young child age 4 wearing a sailor suit back in 1930. The comparison displays Doug in his prime, in the 1950's, standing outside Ed Yarick's Gym. If you haven't read "Strongman: The Doug Hepburn Story", you're missing out.

  14. Doug Hepburn training squats back in the 1950's at Ed Yarick's Gym in Oakland California. I love how everyone in the gym is staring in amazement. Doug Hepburn worked hard on writing his life story with writer Tom Thurston and released "Strongman: The Doug Hepburn Story". Great read if you're a fan of the man.
