Old time strongman lifts

  1. Question Old time strongman lifts

    Is anyone here interested in the very old strongman lifts and methods? Like the side press or the two hand anyhow lift? There were dudes back in the day, like Arthur Saxon, who could lift over 400 lbs. over his head with one arm. Nobody does these lifts anymore, and it is very interesting to me. I have only recently discovered the side press, and it is a task to perform with even light weight.

    Anyway, I was just curious if any of you on here were familiar with this stuff.
