LIST NO. 6 - RARE STRENGTH BOOKS AND MAGAZINES

IT'S  MAGAZINE TIME!



We're going to focus on magazines today - including some really good, but hard to find old magazines.

Which leads to a quick question - why read old strength training and muscle building magazines? As in, magazines going back to the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's? Or, as in some of the better magazines from the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's - such as Strength and Health, Muscular Development or (my favorite) Peary Rader's Iron Man.

Well, there are a lot of good reasons. For example:

1. It's just about the only way to see what 100% natural, drug-free muscular development looks like.

a. That's very important, because it helps you keep from going crazy trying to match the development of modern-day druggers.

2. It's one of the very best sources of real-world, non-commercial advice about strength training and bodybuilding without drugs and modern super supplements.

a. As in, training programs that really work.

b. And many of the best authors in the history of the Iron Game did their best writing in articles that you can only find in old magazines. The articles never made it into books, courses or other compilations.

c. This includes articles by Bob Hoffman, Peary Rader, Harry B. Paschall, Sig Klein, John Grimek, John Davis, Steve Stanko, Paul Anderson, Doug Hepburn, Reg Park, Arthur Jones, Tony Terlazzo, David Willoughby and Bradley J. Steiner.

d. In addition, many old magazines feature in-depth articles on the champions of the era - or interviews with the champions - and these are the best way to learn how these men actually trained.

3. It's one of the only ways to learn old-school weightlifting.

4. You can learn a lot of different exercises that people don't do any more - and that most people don't know how to do. And some of these can help you build very unusual strength and muscular development.

5. There are tons of great training tips and workout programs.

a. See point 2a, above. 

6. It's a great way to learn the history of The Iron Game - and remember, you either learn from history or you make a lot of unnecessary mistakes that you could have avoided.

7. The old-school magazines are jam-packed with information - they were not supplement catalogs like the modern mags - so each issue gives you many hours of fun and enjoyment.

8. John Grimek, Steve Stanko, John Davis and the other great champions of the past would definitely approve!

9.  Bob Hoffman and Peary Rader would approve.

10. If your father or grandfather trained with weights, he probably read these very same magazines - and followed the very same training programs - so you'll be following right along in his footsteps.

The Craft of Strength Training

 
The old-timers treated strength training as a craft - which is something we're going to talk about this week.


Hail to the Dinosaurs!

The weekend before last I attended
a terrific strength training clinic
in Cincinnati, hosted by John and
Kim Wood.

It was a special program for members
of The Iron League. No admission (and
a free lunch) but only for members of
The Iron League.

The plan is to have another of these
terrific clinics next year - and that's
a very good reason to join The Iron
League:

https://www.ironleague.com/

It was hosted in Germantown, not far
from the famous mural of the old-time
strongman, Cincinnti's own Henry
Holtegrewe. He owned a bar where he
poured drinks, lifted weights, lugged
heavy iron, and arm wrestled all
comers.

Eugen Sandow came to Cincinnati
once, and had a lifting contest with
Holtegrewe.

The massive bartender beat him
decisively.

Now, in fairness to Sandow, Henry
Holetegrewe was an incredibly
strong man - and he outweighed
Sandow by over 100 pounds.

There were some very unique
pieces of equipment on display
at the clinic.

Some special, one of a kind, grip
training tools that John had made
based on designs and ideas from
Arthur Jones. These drew a lot of
attention during the breaks. Every-
one gave them a try - and everyone
was super impressed with them.

There also were some very old,
very famous pierces of iron -
including one that I had met
many years ago - and almost
half a world away.

I'll tell you more about them
tomorrow - and about what
triggered the thought giving
rise to the title of this message:

"The Craft of Srength Training"

In the meantime, I'm going to
work up another list of special
books, courses and magazines
for sale at our Big Dinosaur Book
Sale. I'll send an email when it's
ready.

If you missed the previous lists,
you can find them at The Dinosaur

RARE BOOKS AND MAGAZINES FROM DINOSAUR TRAINING - LIST NO. 5



MIGHTY MEN OF OLD

By Gord Venables. Printed by Strength and Health Publishing Co. Copyright 1940, which may also have been the year of printing - I don't know for sure. It's definitely an old book, not a modern reprint.

This is an 8 1/2 x 11 book with a paperback cover and 24 interior pages. It's printed on high quality art paper. It is in fair to good condition with a small stain on the front cover, and some curling or bending at the top and bottom corners. The top left side of the cover has been taped down to hold it in place. However, it is very readable.

This book gives brief biographies, illustrated with classic photos, of a number of old-time strongmen, weightlifters and bodybuilder. 

Despite its relatively small size, the book covers plenty of ground. It features:

Eugen Sandow     Otto Arco     Oscar Matthes

Prof. Attila     Pierre Bonnes     Anton Matysek


John Y. Smith      John Lemm   George Kronas

Herman Goerner   Joe Nordquest   Arvid Anderson


August Johnson   George Rolandow   The Saxon Brothers

Adrian Deriaz   Emile Deriaz Warren Lincoln Travis

Andrew Passanant   Fred Rollon    Clevio Masimo

Apollon Otto Arco   Stanislaus Zbyszko    Maxick

Carl Abs   Bobby Pandour     Prof. Paulinetti

Ernst Cadine   Andre Rolet   Pierre Kryloff

Franz Bienkowsi    Charles MacMahon

George Hackenschmidt   Louis Cyr

This is a very interesting, very rare and hard to find book. If you want it, act fast - because it's going to go fast.

PRICE: $40.00 plus shipping and handling.





THE "TECHNIQUE EMPHASIS" SYSTEM (Covering The Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift)

By Dennis B. Weis, the world-famous "Yukon Hercules." The author is a highly acclaimed Iron Game author who has performed some amazing feats of strength and endurance, including:

Full squats - 300 lbs. x 75 consecutive reps, 405 lbs. x 27 reps and 450 lbs. x 15 reps

Strict two-hand barbell curl - 185 lbs. x 3 reps

Cheat two-hand barbell curl -  250 lbs. x 10 reps

Quarter squats (in the power rack) - 1,000 lbs. x 20 reps

He also - get this - trained in his garage - up in Alaska - including in the winter. (He must have had  grizzly bears as training partners.) And I think there were times when the garage was unheated or minimally heated. So this is old-school, garage gorilla training at its finest - from a man who walked the walk!

The "Technique Emphasis" System is a 34 page, spiral bound training manual that covers the squat, bench press and deadlift. It includes a number of photos. Copyright 1988. Excellent condition.

The manual gives detailed instruction on how to perform each of these three lifts, followed by several hardcore training programs, including:

The Bionic Leg Power System

The Bench Press explosion Program

The World Famous Finnish Deadlift Program

An Updated Version of the Finnish Deadlift Program

Note: The updated version of the Finnish Deadlift Program includes some very useful advice on how to incorporate homemade wooden wooden blocks for graduated measured movement training - this alone is worth the price of the manual.

I don't know if this is available anywhere else, but it's available right here - for a very reasonable price.

PRICE: $30.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, The "Technique Emphasis" System has been taken. 





SUPER CALVES

By Dennis B. Weiss. A 20-page manual featuring a unique one-day blitz program for the calves. Spiral bound. Copyright 1997. Excellent condition.

The course promises to add 1/2" of muscle to your calves in one day. I've never tried it, and I can't vouch for it - but it's a variation of Peary Rader's one-day blitz program for the upper arms. A very unique and very interesting course. But be careful if you try the program - you might end up with some really severe muscular soreness. However, there's nothing wrong with using the exercises in  the program in a more conventional three day schedule as part of your regular workouts!

PRICE: $20.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Super calves has been taken.






TRAINING INFORMATION FOR THE POWERLIFTER

By Dennis B. Weis. A spiral-bound, 23-page manual for powerlifters and anyone who wants to build  maximum strength and muscle mass as fast as possible. Copyright 1998. Excellent condition. Includes a number of photos.

This concise but complete strength training manual covers:

The Proper Mental Attitude

Breakdown Performance of the Three Powerlifts

Training Maxims

Cycle training

Isolation Movements and Power Rack Training

Pre-Contest preparation

Making All Nine Attempts

Warmups and Attempts

Performance of the Powerlifts

Miscellaneous Powerlifting Notes

Power Rack Training

Pre-Contest Preparation

Mental Aspects

Plus: A complete beginner's program covering strength training for powerlifting

As you can see, this little manual covers pretty much everything there is to know about effective strength training for powerlifting - and about how to use powerlifting workouts to build the ultimate in strength, muscle and power. Good stuff!

 PRICE: $30.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Training Information for the Powerlifter has been taken.





THE BEST FORM OF BODYBUILDING

By Dennis B. Weis. Yet another concise but complete training manual from the Yukon Hercules. This one weighs in at 42 pages. Copyright 1998. Spiral bound. Excellent condition. Includes some photos of top bodybuilders of the modern era. (The photo of Chuck Sipes training in his backyard is my favorite.)

30 Chapters covering all aspects of old-school bodybuilding - the kind of training that builds a perfect combination of muscle mass, size, shape, symmetry, strength and power. Think John Grimek, Reg Park, and Chuck Sipes - men who who looked strong, and who were just as strong as they looked.

Contents include:

Proper mental attitude

Concentration

How to organize your training program

Sets and reps

Training poundages  

The best exercises

Recovery ability

Workout frequency

How to warm-up properly

Building tendon and ligament strength

Proper breathing

How to avoid going stale

Training for teenagers

Training for older men

Diet and nutrition

Training programs

In short, it's another training manual that packs a ton of information into a relatively small number of pages. Highly recommended!

Price: $30.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, The Best Form of Bodybuilding has been taken.





THE JETTISON TECHNIQUE

By Dennis B. Weis.  A 14-page, spiral-bound booklet illustrated with line-drawings. Copyright 1998. Excellent condition.

This booklet covers a very demanding system of training devleoped by Dennis B. Weis, the Yukon Hercules. It's especially good for upper body training - and it builds a terrific combination of strength and muscle mass. Includes detailed instruction on how to use the jetison Technique for maximum results in your training. Also includes a bonus article titled "The mathematics of Determining a Single Rep Maximum."

By the way, this is another excellent system for home gym trainees  - you'll see why when you take  a look at it!

Price: $15.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, The Jettison technique has been taken.



THE BIG CHEST BOOK

By Bob Hoffman. Copyright 1941. NOT a modern reprint - this one dates back to (I believe) 1941,  the year of the copyright on the inside cover. 256 pages. Good condition, with some fraying and wear on the top and bottom of the spine.

This 256-page book has MANY classic photos of the old-timers, as well as rare photos of John Grimekm Tony Terlazzo, other York champions and other bodybuilders and weightlifters of the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's. As with many of the other books that I'm selling, the photos alone are worth the price of the book - especially if you want to see what maximum physical development without steroids or other drugs actually looks like.  (Remember, they didn't use steroids back in 1941 and earlier - so the amazing muscular development you see in these photos is the result of hard work on old-school exercises and old-school training methods.) 

It is titled "The Big Chest Book," but it cover the development of the rib-case, the chest muscles, the shoulders, and the latisimus and other upper back muscles, using a variety of bodyweight exercises, cable exercises, dumbbell exercises and barbell exercises.

A very good book, and a great guide to productive and effective old-school bodybuilding and strength training. 

This will go fast - if you want it, shoot me an email right away.

PRICE: $30.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, The Big Chest Book has been taken.



GUIDE TO WEIGHTLIFTING COMPETITION

By Bob Hoffman. Copyright 1963. Paperback. A 48-page manual with line-drawings. Excellent condition.

This manual is a complete guide to Olympic weightlifting as it was practiced, taught and coached in the USA in the 1950's and 1960's. It's quite likely that every competitive weightlifter and every weightlifting coach in the USA had a copy.

Topics include:

The AAU Official Weightlifting Rules

Interpretation of the Rules

How to perform the clean and military press

The hook grip

How to improve your pressing ability

Assistance exercises to improve the military press

How to train for improved military pressing

RARE BOOKS AND MAGAZINES FROM DINOSAUR TRAINING - LIST NO. 4


BODY-BUILDING AND SELF-DEFENSE

By Myles Callum. Paperback. 141 pages. Many photographs. A former library copy from the University of Montreal Library. Good condition. Very readable.

When I was a kid, the public library had just a couple of books on weight training. This was one of them. I read it over and over. I must have checked it out 10 or 20 times between ages 9 and 14.

First published in 1962, the information is still pretty darn good. It's an excellent book for beginners, particularly teens and pre-teens.

The book is in two parts. The first part teaches basic conditioning drills with bodyweight exercises and simple gymnastics, progresses to some simple movements with handgrippers and chest expanders, and then gives the reader a good beginner course in basic weight training that features on what the author calls The Basic Six. The second part teaches basic self-defense.

It's a great little book, and was very popular back in the day. Highly recommended, especially for those of you with a son or grandson who wants to start training! (By the way, this would go well with  Physical Conditioning, and with the Harry Paschhall book on arm and shoulder training, both of which are featured in today's list.)

PRICE: $15.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Bodybuilding and Self Defense has been taken.






PHYSICAL CONDITIONING

By George Stafford and Ray Duncan. Hard copy. 112 pages. Illustrated with many line drawings. Copyright 1942. 14th ed. In very good to excellent condition.

This is a very good book about getting in shape with basic calisthenics. The movements can be performed anywhere, and the only equipment you need is a chinning bar and, if possible, a set of dipping bars or parallel bars if training at a school gym or YMCA (or outdoor workout area).

This is how people trained without weights back in the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's. The exercises were performed in public schools, colleges, universities and YMCA's; by athletes; by businessmen; by men and women of all ages; and by members of the Armed Forces. Of course, when the book came out in 1942, everyone was focused on physical training and conditioning because of the War, and that's probably why the book was written and published at the time. 

The book teaches many different exercises we don't see very often nowadays, including the Pincer Movement, Attacking All Fronts, Hit the Deck, the "V", the Russian, the Jeep, the Piston and others.

Includes complete workout programs for both men and women, advice for beginners, how to get started, how to progress in your training, etc. Includes special advice for older trainees.

A very good little book, and one that would go well with Body-Building and Self-Defense if you're looking for books for your son or grandson.

PRICE: $20.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Physical Conditioning has been taken. 





This is the 1942 Physical Training Manual for the United States Naval Academy.  Hard copy, 312 pages, many photos. Very good to excellent condition.

The book includes chapters on setting-up exercises, rhythmic exercises, stretching and limbering exercises, and a wide variety of sports. Includes chapters on boxing, wrestling and rough and tumble fighting. And the photo of the Naval Academy gymnasium at page 35 is pretty amazing.

This is a rare glimpse into the past - a look at how training used to be done - and a chronicle of a world that once was.

A very nice and very interesting book.

PRICE: $20.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, the Physical Training Manual has been taken.




THE CLARENCE BASS COLLECTION

a/k/a THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

A set of seven books covering Clarence Bass's bodybuilding and physical culture journey. Especially good for anyone interested in losing excess fat, bodybuilding or bodybuilding competition, HIT training, training for older athletes, combining cardio and strength training, and the latest in scientific research on these topics.



1. Ripped - The Sensible Way to Achieve Ultimate Muscularity (very good to excellent condition)



2. Ripped 2  (very good to excellent condition)

SECRET FIGHTING ARTS OF THE WORLD

By John F. Gilbey. Hard copy. 150 pages, with original dust jacket. First edition, 1963. Excellent condition. This is a collectible.

The author, John F. Gilbey, traveled the world seeking out masters of obscure martial arts and combat skills, and learning their secret methods. The book covers his investigation of the delayed death touch, the Liverpool nutter, the Canton corkscrew, Thuggee strangulation, the Patagonian Purr-kick, the Chavante arm lock, the dinky little poke, secret and super-savage Savate tactics, the mysterious art of Kiai-jutsu, and much more.

I almost bought this book when I was a 9-year old kid in the Chicago suburbs. My dad took me Christmas shopping in downtown Chicago, and we went to a wonderful store called Abercrombie and Fitch - which back then (before it became a clothing store for teens and tweens) sold top-of-the-line, no-nonsense gear for hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, canoeing - African safaris - and expeditions on every Continent. Two years later, when I joined the Boy Scouts, I bought all of my camping gear at this store.

The walls were mounted with trophies from across the globe. Lions, tigers, water buffalo, bison, leopards, jaguars, bears of every description, moose, deer, elk, caribou, gazelle, wildebeest - it just went on and on. To an impressionable 9-year old, this was indeed a magic place. 


On the second floor, there was a section of martial arts books. This was one of them. I looked at the table of contents, and decided I wanted it immediately.  After all, it taught you the delayed death touch, and what could be better than that? Like any 9-year old, I had a long list of enemies who needed a good pounding, and the death touch sounded like it would do the job.

Of course, I wasn't going to kill anybody - just give them a good pounding.

But the store clerk pulled my dad aside and suggested that one of the judo or jiu-jitsu books might be better suited to a 9-year old.

"Besides," he said. "Some of the stuff in this book doesn't seem to be legitimate. There's one chapter  about stopping a man dead in his tracks - knocking him out cold - with just a shout."

My dad nodded and frowned slightly.

It's been more than 50 years, but I can still see him - and still hear him - as if it were yesterday.

"I see," he said.

There was a world of meaning in those two words.


I wanted the book desperately - but my dad was a skeptic, and skepticism carried the day. I went home with a judo book and a jiu-jitsu book - but not Secret Fighting Arts of the World.

Years later, this copy found its way into my library. Reading it now, at age 60, I have to admit that my dad's skepticism was merited - but it's still a heck of a fun book.

Copies of the first edition sell for $150 or more. You can have it for much less than that. Just promise me that you won't try the delayed death touch on anyone!

PRICE: $75.00 plus shipping and handling



MUSCLE BUILDING

By Earle E. Liederman.  1st edition, 1924. Not a modern reprint. 219 pages. Excellent condition. Many photographs. Excellent condition.


This was one of the classic training books from the 1920's, and it got many young men started on the road to muscle and might! Includes a complete course in bodyweight exercises and progressive barbell and dumbbell training, and special advice on developing all of the major muscle groups. And it even includes a chapter on posing for muscle display!

If you lifted weights back in the 1920's, you probably had a copy of this book - and you may very well have used the very same exercises taught in this book.

Includes rare photos of Earle E. Liederman, Eugen Sandow, Abe Boshes, George Hackenschmidt, Jack Dempsey, George Lurich, Stanislaus Zbyszko, Frank Gotch, Jim Londos, Pierre Gasnier, Simon Javierto, Fred Rollon and many others.  The photos alone are worth the price of the book.

A very nice collector's item - at a very reasonable price.

PRICE: $75.00 plus shipping and handling.




SECRETS OF STRENGTH

By Earle E. Liederman. 4th edition, 1929. Not a modern reprint. Hard copy. 222 pages. Many photographs - and they're all classics! Excellent condition. 

This book covers all of the different factors that contribute to the development of physical strength, including inherited and acquired strength, the effect of size and weight on strength development, strength through muscular development, whether small bones are a bar to strength, quality of muscle as the basis of strength, tendon and fascia strength, strength through symmetry, the importance of big lungs and a strong heart, the secret of nervous energy, and building vital force and reserve. Includes many colorful anecdotes about the famous old-timers, and many specific old-school training tips.

This book includes 30 magnificent dull-page photos, including classic photos of Eugen Sandow, George Hackenschmidt, George Lurich, Edward Aston, Joseph Nordquest, Arthur Saxon, Thomas Inch, John Y. Smith, Warren Lincoln Travis, George Jowett, Tony Massimo, Henry "Milo" Steinborn, and Bobby Pandour.  Again, the photos alone are worth the price of the book.

Another very nice collector's item, at a very reasonable price.

PRICE: 75.00 plus shipping and handling.






". . . AND GOD LAUGHS"

By Arthur Jones. 450 pages. Copyright 1994. 450 pages. Spiral bound. There is a lot of spotting on the cover (not sure why - might have been from all of Arthur Jones' years as a globe-trotting hunter and zoologist), but the interior pages are in very good condition. This is a fascinating and informative autobiography of the man who invented the Nautilus exercise machines - and who  revolutionized physical training in the 1970's and 1980's. Whether you love him or hate him, this book is well worth some serious study. Get the facts, not the Internet hype.

PRICE: $30.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, ". . . And God Laughs" has been taken.

Full squats - 300 lbs. x 75 consecutive reps, 405 lbs. x 27 reps and 450 lbs. x 15 reps

Strict two-hand barbell curl - 185 lbs. x 3 reps

Quarter squats (in the power rack) - 1,000 lbs. x 20 reps

As a special bonus, I'll include a copy of The 100's System - a 7-page bodybuilding course authored by Dennis B. Weiss.

Yes, this is bodybuilding more than strength and power training - but some of you like that - so check it out. Remember, the author has some pretty impressive credentials. 


PRICE: $10.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, the 118 Day Training Schedule has been taken.





MUSCULAR ARMS AND SHOULDERS

BRAWN

Stuart McRobert's classic guide to effective strength training for drug-free, genetically average men. I'm sure you're familiar with it - so I won't go into detail. This is a very good copy, and the price is excellent. If you don't have a copy - or if you want one for your son or grandson - grab it now. 

PRICE: $15.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Brawn has been taken.








HAND BALANCING COURSES

This is a combination package of two excellent hand-balancing courses. The first is a modern reprint of The True Art and Science of Hand Balancing by Prof. Paulinetti and Robert L. Jones. The second is Bill Hinbern's incredible hand balancing course, which I happen to think is the best hand-balancing course ever written.

You can build tremendous upper body and core strength with old-school hand-balancing - and these books will teach you exactly how to do it!

Both courses are wire-bound, and are in very good condition. You can have both of them together (two books) for one very reasonable price.

PRICE: $50.00 for both books, plus shipping and handling




A DVD that gives a detailed look at how the Bulgarian weightlifting team trained back in the 1980's. There's a lot of nonsense floating around about so-called "Bulgarian Training" - if you want to see what they really did, this is for you.

This DVD features some amazingly fast and explosive lifting, and some insanely strong athletes. And no, they don't train in any sort of fancy gym. It's nothing but your basic dungeon with tons of plates.

Good stuff - fun and informative.

PRICE: $20.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, the Bulgarian Training DVD has been taken.

RARE BOOKS AND MAGAZINES FROM DINOSAUR TRAINING - LIST NO. 3





FRANK GOTCH - WORLD'S GREATEST WRESTLER

By Mike Chapman. Paperback. 139 pages. Many rare photos. Excellent condition. Foreword by wrestling legend Verne Gagne. A wonderful biography of the man that many call the greatest wrestler of all time. Includes a detailed account of both of the legendary Gotch-Hackenschmidt matches.

By the way, the cover photo shows Gotch applying one of the many variations of his dreaded toe-hold. I think the man getting his foot twisted off is Russian wrestler and weightlifter George Lurich, who weighed 187 pounds and could perform a ONE arm clean and jerk with 266 3/4 pounds. Gotch is handling him as if he were a baby.

When I first moved to Louisville many years ago, a very old man across the street asked me if I was a wrestler.

I told him, "Not any more, but I wrestled in high school."

"I knew it," he said. 

I asked if he was a wrestling fan, and he told me that he had seen Frank Gotch and Farmer Burns wrestle when he was a little kid - and that he had been a wrestling fan ever since.  He said Gotch was the best he had ever seen. That gives you a good idea of what Frank Gotch was like - and how memorable a champion he was.

This book was published in 1990. Copies sell for $81.50 to $199.95. Because you're a Dinosaur, you can have it for much, much less.

Price: $50.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Frank Gotch - World's Greatest Wrestler has been taken.






WRESTLING WITH SUCCESS - DEVELOPING A CHAMPIONSHIP MENTALITY

By Nikita Koloff and Jeffrey Gitomer.  Hard copy. 216 pages. Many photos and line drawings (cartoons). Excellent condition. This is a combination autobiography and guide to being successful in sports, business, and life in general. Pro Wrestling superstar, Nikita Koloff, teaches important keys to success in any and every aspect of your life. A very entertaining, fast moving, fun and informative book. It will make you want to bod-slam anything in your way.

I saw Nikita Koloff wrestle here in Louisville about the time of the events he covers in the book. Trust me, the man was a monster.

PRICE: $19.95 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Wrestling with Success has been taken.






OF STONES AND STRENGTH

By Steve Jeck and Peter Martin. Paperback. 124 pages. Many photographs. Published in 1996 by IronMind Enterprises, Inc. Very good to excellent condition. This is the book that put stone lifting on the map. It includes fascinating and inspiring accounts of Steve Jeck's battles with legendary strength stones around the world, including the Inver Stone, the Blue Stones of  Old Dailley, the Testing Stone of the Fianna, the Stone of Destiny, the Hans Streyer Stones, the Husafel Stone, and many others. Includes the histtory and tradition surrounding these wonderful objects, and a complete course on how to train for stonelifting success.

And yes, a number of our Dinos have tackled the very same stones - and several Dinos have mastered them. We've covered this in The Dinosaur Files and the Dinosaur Files Quarterly. So I know that many of you are stone lifting fans!

Used copies sell for around $45.00 on Amazon. You can grab it here for much less than that.

PRICE: $30.00 plus shipping and handling (stones not included)

UPDATE: Sorry, Of Stones and Strength has been taken.






 STRONGMAN -  THE DOUG HEPBURN STORY

By Tom Thurston. Paperback. 295 pages. Many great photos. In very good condition other than a slight teat in the cover at the top of the spine. A detailed and inspiring biography of Doug Hepburn, World Weightlifting Champions and World record Holder, and one of the strongest men who ever lived.

Includes detailed training programs based on Doug Hepburn's actual workouts while training for major competitions.

All in all, this is an excellent book.

Several of our longtime Dinosaurs knew Doug Hepburn. Some of them talked training with him. One man used to have coffee with Big Doug and pick his brain for lifting tips. This book isn't quite the same as that, but it's pretty darn close.

Signed by the author, with a note to Brooks Kubik - which makes it a true collector's item.

PRICE: $25.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Strongman - The Doug Hepburn Story has been taken.






HYPNOTIZE ME AND MAKE ME GREAT

By Dr. Judd Biasiotto. Paperback. 71 pages. Published in 1985. Excellent condition. This book is written by a powerlifting champion and record holder who mastered the art of self-hypnosis for strength training and powerlifting competition - and now teaches YOU how to do the very same thing.

I used these methods extensively when I was training for, and competing in, powerlifting and bench press contests. They're easy to learn - and they work. 

A very interesting and informative book - written in plain English, with lots of anecdotes and stories - and very easy to apply.

This book is very rare and hard to find. i just did a quick search to see if I could find it in any used book sites on the Internet - and didn't find any copies for sale. That's not to say that you won't find one, but it won't be easy. And someone else might charge you an arm and a leg for it. I'm not going to do that, so if you want it, grab it right now!

PRICE: $25.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Hypnotize Me and Make Me Great has been taken. 





KILL-AS-CATCH CAN

By Ned Beaumont. Paperback. 200 pages. Illustrated with numerous line drawings. Very good to excellent condition. A complete guide to using wrestling skills in street-fighting and personal defense.

This book made a big splash when it was published back in 1998. It's out of print now, and very hard to find. Copies sell for anywhere from $49.00 to $264.89, with the average price for copies in very good to excellent condition being somewhere between $65.00 and $80.00. But don't worry - I'm going to charge a lot less than that.

There's a back story here, and I want to share it. The author was one of the very first Dinosaurs - meaning that he bought a copy of Dinosaur training when the little monster first came out way back in 1996.

When he published his own book, he included a very nice review and endorsement of Dinosaur Training (it's at page 175), and he sent me an inscribed, autographed copy. It's been in my library ever since, but now I want to pass it on to another Dinosaur. And since it's inscribed and autographed, it's a true collector's item.

PRICE: $50.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, Kill-As_Catch-Can has been taken.





THE CHARLES ATLAS DYNAMIC TENSION COURSE (MODERN EDITION)

This is the modern version of the original Charles Atlas "Dynamic-Tension" Bodybuilding and Fitness System. It comes in a three ring binder, and includes 12 Lessons, 5 special gifts, a letter from Charles Atlas and a certificate telling the world that you are a Charles Atlas student. This is the best-selling physical culture course in history, and although it's dated, if you followed the workouts on a regular basis you'd do pretty darn well.

The modern course sells for $49.95. This copy is in excellent condition, and you can have it for $29.95 plus shipping and handling.

If you had the Charles Atlas course when you were a kid - or if you never had it, but always wanted to own a copy  - or if you want to start your son or grandson off on the right kind of training for a beginner, this is a great course for you.

By the way, I never had a copy of the Charles Atlas course when I was a kid. It cost $30.00, and that was way too much money for me back then. But I always wanted the darn thing - and so did all of my friends. If you're my age, you probably felt the very same way.

PRICE: $29.95 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, the Charles Atlas course has been taken.





THE COMPLETE KEYS TO PROGRESS

By John McCallum. Edited by Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D.  Paperback. 270 pages. This is it - the complete collection of all of John McCallum's legendary articles. Tons of great info. Especially good for old-school strength and bulk training.  Several really good articles on leg specialization, breathing squats, hip belt squats, and other "get big" workouts. Very entertaining, and fun to read.

This copy is in good condition. The cover is a bit bent here and there, and there is some light spotting on the outside of the pages that is visible when the book is closed, but the inside pages are clean and it's very readable.

If you've been thinking about getting around to reading this, now's the time.  


PRICE: $10.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, the Complete Keys to Progress has been taken.




SCOTTISH HIGHLAND GAMES

By David Webster. Hard copy. 143 pages. Many rare photographs. First edition, printed in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1973. With the original dust cover. In excellent condition - and signed by the author!

This is the definitive guide to the Scottish Highland Games, written by the man who is probably the world's leading authority on the Highland Games, their tradition, their history, and the athletes who will live forever in the hearts of strength fans. If you want to feel as if you're right there, standing on a field in Scotland, with the heather waving in the breeze on the far hills, the salmon leaping in the river and the castles standing strong and proud over the dark, cold lochs - waiting your turn to throw the mighty, massive caber  and watch it go spinning through the air - this book is for you.

This book is a collectible. It's hard to find, and I don't know if any other signed copies are available for sale.

PRICE: $100.00 plus shipping and handling.

UPDATE: Sorry, but Scottish Highland Games has been taken.



THE ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF PHYSICAL CULTURE

By Alan Radley. 8 1/2 X 11. Paperback. 148 pages. Published in 2001. Lavishly illustrated with many rare photos and drawings, including photos of virtually all the great champions from the Golden Age of Physical Culture (Sandow, Saxon, Hackenschmidt, etc.) up through the era of John Grimek, John Davis and Steeve Reeves, and from there into the modern era.

In excellent condition, and signed by the author. Another true collector's edition.

Out of print. Very rare and hard to find. Used copies sell for $50.00 on Amazon, but they don't appear to be autographed by the author - and there are only two copies available. You can have this autographed copy for the same price.

PRICE: $50.00 plus shipping and handling




THE STRONGEST SHALL SURVIVE - STRENGTH TRAINING FOR FOOTBALL

By Bill Starr. A very popular book that teaches strength training for football based on old-school, ground-based training, emphasizing Bill Starr's Big 3: the squat, bench press and power clean.8 1/2 x 11, 212 pages. Third edition, 1979.

This is a photo-copy, not an original. Normally, I would not offer a photo-copy for sale, but this one is unique.

Bill Starr autographed the original to "Stuart" in October, 1991. I can only presume that this was Stuart McRobert, the author of BRAWN and other books, and the editor and publisher of Hardgainer magazine at the time Starr autographed the book.

At the time, I was writing for Hardgainer magazine, and was corresponding with Mike Thompson, a fellow author for Hardgainer who had a great litle series called "The Real Thing."

Mike sent me this photo-copy of The Strongest Shall Survive as a Christmas present, and included a signed message just below Bill Starr's autograph.

Thus, you have a double autograph - Bill Starr to Stuart McRobert, and then Mike Thompson to me. I don't think you'll find that anywhere else in the world.

Here's what it looks like:




Anyhow, this is a great little piece of Iron Game history - and a perfect gift for fans of Bill Starr and Mike Thompson.

Price: $20.00 plus shipping and handling




INTERNATIONAL ALL-ROUND WEIGHTLIFTING ASSOCIATION OFFICIAL RULEBOOK


This is a copy of the official rulebook for the International All-Round Weightlifting Association. It's not dated, but I believe it is from the 1990's. It covers 132 different lifts contested in IAWA competition, and includes brief descriptions of how to perform them, along with photos of many of the lifts. This is a great resource for learning old-school lifts, including a wide variety of presses, jerks, deadlifts, snatches, bent presses, swings, the crucifix, etc.

8 1/2 x 11, over 50 pages, printed on one-side only, in a heavy binder. Very good condition.

$20.00 plus shipping and handling

UPDATE: Sorry, The IAWA Official Rulebook has been taken.
