The Text Book of Weight-Lifting

by Arthur Saxon

“The Iron Master!”


Saxon 1-2Back in print! For now at least the best book on the training methods of the old-time strongmen that I’ve seen.

Opening this book of 1910 gives you the feeling you’ve opened the training manual of strongmen of yore.

It’s filled with rare never before published photos of the great Arthur Saxon, world famous professional strongman and circus performer billed as, The Strongest Man on Earth!

(He personally posed for each and every lift! This alone is worth the price of the book!)

It’s just the right mix of rare nostalgic photos and practical training information.

What were his training methods?

Rare information?

One of the very few books describing in detail the training methods of the old-time strongmen of the day, before vitamins, steroids or plastic surgery!
