Re: Expanders

After training today I thought I would share my journey through expander training. Here is a picture of me at about 29 I think. What I had benefitted most from up to this point was...being young! Pre Body 2.jpg Fast forward about 8 years and I was looking for something to 'do' other than lift weight...

Re: Sticks has left us.I

When I read his last post early yesterday it seemed horribly like he had written his own obituary, so it was sad to read Peter's update. As a final post though, it sums the man up fine: the tapestry of strength and experience we've built belongs to the ages and each others souls. Those words are onl...

Re: Maxalding

Good luck with it and keep us updated. I have my own copy of the Maxalding system made for a young man in the early 1960's, and there isn't THAT much difference between the outlined exercises and the examples you will find in the library to be honest. I have always found it easier to strain a muscle...

Re: The Best Physical Culturists of the 1930's

I can't imagine anyone topping John Grimek for the 1930's, but I'll also put forward Professor K.V. Iyer and Oscar Heidenstam. I was going to add Ronald Walker, but can't condone a nasty smoking habit ;)

Re: The Best Physical Culturists of the 1920's

Public prominence a bit debatable I suppose, but (as well as Alan Meade), I'll go for: Charles Atlas! And, connected to old Charlie: Tony Sansone (who a certain Mr Gentle is said to have remarked: "If Sansone had been born in Greek antiquity, he would have been immortalized as a god."). Word to the ...

Re: Expanders

Oh, I've got a variety already. I was a relatively recent convert to springs (at Peter's suggestion) as I started out with Lifeline strands. I found that springs give a much stronger and even pull. I have Spenby and Terry's, and keep 3 sets at low / medium and heavy weight. I took at Springmasters t...

Re: Expanders

Just a note re: Springmasters Ltd -
We only have stock of 52000 and the rest have been discontinued.

52000 @ £4.03 Each
Delivery: Ex stock
52000 is the 5lb spring, so not hugely helpful :lol:
