Batchelor’s Backlift

Posted on Thursday, October 26th, 2017 by John Wood
A look at mighty Mac Batchelor as he takes a breather from backlifting, circa 1949. Look closely and you’ll see that his “human weight” included Les Stockton and Roy Hilligenn of South Africa (who had recently won the Mr. Pacific Coast contest.) Mac had recently “trained down” to 275 lbs. (a loss of about 50 lbs. from his normal weight.)
