Fred Rollon

Posted on Sunday, August 19th, 2018 by John Wood
Another look at the utterly ridiculous muscular development of Fred Rollon. This was taken about 1905, mind you. Rollon was often referred to as “The Human Anatomy Chart” — and, as you can see, with very good reason. Interestingly, Rollon claimed not to lift weights at all, he just trained with expanders. Look closely and you’ll actually notice an expander handle in his hands. It was said that the bands that he trained with had a resistance level of over 300 lbls and could withstand horses.
