Why Reg Park Matters

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

As I mentioned in yesterday's email, the
Mystery Man was none other than three
time Mr. Universe, Reg Park.

Yes, Reg Park started his training career
at age 17, pressing a 40 pound barbell.

In other words, he had a lot of room for

By way of contrast, John Davis pressed
170 pounds the first time he ever touched
a barbell - at age 15.

And yet, Park went on to become one of
the strongest men in the world - and the
top bodybuilder of his era - and the second
man in history (after Doug Hepburn) to
bench press 500 pounds.

Now, some will argue that Reg Park had
great genetics for bodybuilding and for
strength training - and that's true.

But it's also true that Park's genetics
did NOT make him strong. His training

Park's genetics let him press a mere
40 pounds - which is less than the
weight of an unloaded Olympic barbell.

But with plenty of hard training, he

You see, when you start, you never know
where you're going to finish.

And that's why it's important to roll up

As always, thanks for reading and have a
great day. If you train today, make it a
good one!

Yours in strength,
