The Secret of Old School Strength

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

Yesterday I shared an email about old school
weightlifter strength. It featured Bob Hoffman's
Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal standards for
the military press.

The Gold Medal standards are pretty impressive.
Many of you emailed and commented that the
men who trained back in the 1930s, 40s and
50s were strong as heck.

And more than a few of you asked, "What was
their secret?"

How did so many men build such tremendous
strength with NO supplements, NO drugs, and
NONE of the fancy, hi-tech equipment you see

That's a good question, and it's something I
think about a lot.

I think part of the reason is that they were
taught that strength training was simple:

1. You either bought a barbell or you found
somewhere to train that had barbells.

2. You performed basic barbell exercises.

3. You added weight to the bar on a regular

And that was pretty much all you needed to

Nowadays, beginners are bombarded with
an insane amount of detail about how to
train, what equipment to use, what kind
of diet to follow, what supplements to take,
what drugs to use, and so much other
unnecessary babble that their poor heads
are pretty much ready to explode before
they take their first workout.

They get lost in the world of information

They get distracted.

They get confused.

And they get nowhere.

That's a shame - and it's why all of us need
to support and promote sensible, effective,
old-school strength training.

It's what so many people need - but it's so
hard for them to find it - or to give it an
honest chance.

Please help me spread the word - and let's
do everything we can to make old-school
strength training live forever.

Yours in strength,
