Romulus

Posted on Monday, April 17th, 2017 by John Wood

The stage name of the Italian Strongman Cosimo Molino was “Romulus,” of course, he had a partner “Remus,” their names a call back to the mythical founders of Rome. Romulus stood 5’3″ and weighed only 167 pounds and it was said that he has a 25 inch thigh. At one time, Romulus was easily one of the strongest men of all time, not pound-for-pound, but all time as in 1892, he performed a single-arm push of a 109 lb. dumbbell for 22 repetitions! He performed many other impressive feats with heavy dumbbells. Romulus was a student of professor Attila.
