Guest Squat More

Got this post from the other forum I post at (sherdog s&c forums), someone took the time to put this together and I wanted to share it. Not in any way taking credit for putting this together.


The S+C resource for everything related to Old Time training styles and lifting in all disciplines -


Back when lifting was in its infancy, there was no time wasted on internet forums and more time spent lifting iron. Here we can learn from those who walked before us and garnered more experience/pain/gains than the majority of us ever will.

Websites -

The Tight Tan Slacks of Dezso Ban (probably the best resource for old time articles)

Old Time Strongman
Sandow Plus (loads of info on pre barbell era)
