Ronnie Walker - 1936 pathe video

Post by Tom K » Wed May 22, 2019 12:46 pm

Found this great video on YouTube from the British pathe archive - Ronnie Walker strongman from 1936 - what a physique!

His lifts in the video :
300lbs over head press (not strict with layback) of a barbel with 2 people hanging onto it

180lbs one hand snatch

Some pressing which shows off an incredible back thickness

Easy 300lbs Snatch
