THE TRAINING SECRETS OF JOHN GRIMEK!
"Back in the day" a single man epitomized old-school strength training and muscle building - a man who combined massive muscular development, classic proportions, world-class strength and sheer, raw power in a manner never seen before - or since. |
His name was John Grimek - and he may have been the greatest all-natural bodybuilder of all time.
But John Grimek was more than a bodybuilder. He was an icon. Consider these accomplishments:
Grimek won the USA Senior National Weightlifting Championships
Grimek's rise to the top of the Iron Game has been called "The Greatest Physique Story Ever Told" - and it was!
Grimek set American records in weightlifting
On more than one occasion, Grimek narrowly missed setting a World record in the military press
Grimek won the North American Weightlifting Championships
Grimek defeated the legendary John Davis in weightlifting - and was the last man to do so before Davis embarked on his epic win streak that ran
from the 1938 World Championships to the 1953 Senior Nationals
Grimek represented the USA in weightlifting at the 1936 Olympic Games
Grimek represented the USA at the 1938 World Weightlifting Championships
Grimek won the 1940 Mr. America contest
Grimek won the title "America's Most Muscular Man" at the 1940 Mr. America contest
Grimek repeated his Mr. America victory by winning the 1941 Mr. America contest
Grimek was so far ahead of his competitors that the AAU passed a rule prohibiting Mr. America winners from entering the contest - a rule passed solely to give competitors other than Grimek a chance to win the title!
Grimek won the title "Most Muscular Man in America" - at 36 years of age!
Grimek won the Mr. Universe contest in 1948 - when he was 38 years old!
At nearly 40 years of age, Grimek came out of retirement to win the Mr. USA title in 1949 - defeating the top bodybuilders of the era, including Steve Reeves, Clarence Ross, and George Eiferman.
When Grimek performed tours and exhibitions throughout the United States, he military pressed 285 or 290 pounds at every show - and continental pressed 305 or 315 pounds - at a bodyweight of around 200 pounds!
Despite being the most massively muscular man of his era, Grimek could perform a full splits. His posing routine included classic poses, muscle control, hand balancing, handstand push-ups, and tiger bends.
Grimek was an expert at many strongman stunts, including card tearing, bar bending, scrolling, chain breaking and ripping telephone books with his powerful hands.
Grimek burst into prominence in the early 1930's - and knew, met, competed against, trained with and corresponded with virtually all of the great champions from the Golden Age of Might and Muscle. He was completely familiar with how they trained - and he knew what worked for them, and what didn't work. And while his training methods were uniquely his own, he included tips from Sig Klein, George F. Jowett, Mark Berry, Bob Hoffman, Alan Calvert and other leaders of old-time physical culture.
He was called The Monarch of Muscledom - and if any man deserved the title, it was John Grimek.
Grimek was a member of the York Barbell Club and worked for Strength and Health magazine for many years. In the 1960's, he became the editor of Muscular Development magazine. Through Strength and Health and Muscular Development, Grimek taught old-school physical culture to countless trainees across the world.
John Grimek may have inspired more men and boys to start weight training than any other man in history - and his legend lives on. Today, more than 100 years after he was born, John Grimek remains an inspiration to weightlifters, bodybuilders and physical culturists across the globe.
