I like to collect old fitness. I know that is a little weird but it beats selling drugs on the street.
People seems to be cut from a different cloth back then. Partly I think I it was a lack of internet. If you wanted to say lift a horse you would just go and lift a horse. There was no expert telling you to not lift a god damn horse as a way to exercise.
On of the coolest books I have in my collection is “Super Athletes”. Its a 665 page book that has all the records of human performance up until the 1970′s. It even has a section on Human vs Animal combat records which we might dive into on another blog.
Below are some of my favorite pictures from the book. Check out the wacky crap people pulled off back in the day!!
So what was your favorite?
