|Paul Anderson epitomized Herculean super strength. He won the gold medal at the 1956 Olympics.|
Hail to the Dinosaurs!
45 years ago, Bradley J. Steiner wrote
a great little book with one of the best
titles in the history of the world:
"Powerlifting and the Development of

|England's Reg Park was one of the best built men in the world - and one of the strongest men in the world.|
In the book, Steiner focused on building
four key areas:
3. Shoulder girdle
The theory was, if you built plenty of
strength and muscle mass in those four
key areas, you'd end up with plenty of
strength and muscle mass from head
And it's a valid theory. It works. By
focusing on these four critical areas,
you build maximum strength and
muscle throughout your entire body.
|In his prime, Brooklyn's John Davis was hailed as the Strongest Man in the World. He won six World weightlifting championships and two Olympic gold medals.|
And here's another tip. Or rather, three
of them. These come from me, but I
think Steiner would approve of them:
1. Power rack training
2. Rest-pause training
3. Heavy singles
Why do these help build Herculean
Because they let you train with HEAVY

weights are what it takes to build
That was true 45 years ago - and it's
still true today.

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