The Art & Science of Lifting

by Thomas Inch

The First Official “Britain’s Strongest Man!”

Inch 3-2After becoming Britain’s Strongest Man in 1910, Thomas Inch wrote “The Art & Science of Lifting”.

Here, the veteran weight lifter, explains the different lifting styles used by the contemporary strongmen of the day.

Surprisingly enough, while advocating weightlifting as the best method for developing strength, the author also encourages the use of bodyweight exercises as well as that of chest expanders.

In addition, he explains that it is vital to experiment with a wide variety of different positions, styles, weights, etc. What works best for someone else may not be the best method for you.
