  • While he never achieved the iconic status of fellow Strongman pioneers Eugene Sandow or Louis Apollon, the German weightlifter Arthur Saxon (born Arthur Hennig in 1878) often ranks above them all in the eyes of true Iron Game enthusiasts. Whether performing in a British concert hall or an American circus tent; as a solo act or alongside his brothers in the “Saxon Trio,” Arthur regularly achieved feats of true skill that few others would even attempt. His record-setting “Bent Press,” for example—which he once used to best Sandow himself— remains the gold standard nearly a century after his death.

    This is awesome. Saxon/Hennig was an incredible strong person. Just crazy to see what they lifted even 100 years ago.

    Thank you so much for these videos.. love them all.. shows what is possible without the drugs and all the other modern BS.. the old time masters are the best, train like a greats of the past.. not like drug ridden joke that bodybuilding and weightlifting has become now days.

    These are important for all teens (which I am) to see, so they can understand you don’t need steroids to have amazing bodies and strength. in some cases, strength that has been unmatched with people who do steriods.
