“El Profesor” Zovek is the greatest strength athlete you’ve never heard of. In the late 1960’s Zovek became a national hero in his native Mexico when he performed a number of incredible strength feats and escapes on television to raise money for charity.
Among them: Zovek performed 17,800 situps without stopping (!) in an eight hour span… he skipped rope for nine consecutive hours… smashed through wooden boards with his fists and even held back a team of motorcycles with his teeth. Zovek went on to star in a few Mexican wrestling movies with the likes of Blue Demon.
