John Davis Speaks

The other day I found an interesting article written by John Davis way back in the early 60’s.

For anyone who doesn’t already know, Davis was one of the greatest Olympic weightlifters the USA ever produced–a many time US national champion, North American Champion, Pan American games Champion, a multi time world champion at 181 and in the heavyweight class, a two time Olympic Games champion, and a multi time world record holder. In his article, Davis wrote:

“There is no secret to training on the press–or any other lift, for that matter. It merely requires a little patience, a little imagination, and a good deal of sweat (above all else) with as heavy a weight as you can handle.”

You can’t put it better than that!

Yours in Strength,
