Development Of Physical Power by Arthur Saxon

Arthur Saxon, born Arthur Hennig and nicknamed "The Iron-Master", was a German strongman and circus performer from the late 19th century into the early 20th century. Saxon is most well known for the bent press, with which he set a world record of 168 kg (370 lbs) as well as the "two hands anyhow" lift of 203 kg (448 lbs). Usually, Saxon is depicted with his recognizable mustache.
