Arthur Saxon is one of the most famous of all the oldtime strongman. That’s because his most amazing feat simply boggles the mind.

He lifted 370 lbs. (and was reputed to have been close to locking out 400 lbs) overhead with one arm in what is know as the bent press.

Yes, this is a weight that over 99% of the population can’t lift off the ground with both hands, yet The Iron Master could put it overhead with a single arm. Which group would you rather be in?

Some people claim its just a balance trick. Yet that same strength allowed him to literally toss 200 lb. barbells over head from hand to hand. That weight was just a toy to him.

How about a 250lb military press done in the strictest form without the slightest back bend?

Yes, Arthur Saxon’s strength was not only legendary in his time, but it is still today. Where other strongmen have been forgotten over time, Arthur’s name and reputation lives on.

In Arthur Saxon’s second book, Text Book of Weight Lifting, you’ll discover exercises and techniques that’ll make you strong. Here are the chapters :

Exhibition and Trick Weight-lifting Feats. “To my mind, every man should devote at least some small attention to Weight-lifting. I don’t think that I have come to this conclusion simply because I myself have gained some distinction as a weight-lifter, but rather for the reasons set forth below”. . .
