The Glory of a Man is His Strength…
Perform Feats of Strength that Will Turn Their Heads!
As the saying goes, “The whole world loves a strong man!” And Charles MacMahon was no exception. Early on in his life he decided that he would get involved in athletics. He became such a good athlete that he was signed up to play professional baseball. After retiring from his baseball career, he decided on teaching physical training of all sorts including boxing, wrestling and bodybuilding.
During the 1920’s and 30’s he met and trained with some of the most famous strong men in the world. These strong men could sense his sincerity and therefore shared some of their most intimate secrets involving their training methods.
After training with many of these famous performers, he wrote several highly successful physical training courses.
One of his most famous books is available once again for a limited time…
