Another look at Gust Lessis doing the old human anvil feat. Gust performed this feat at Brighton Beach, New York on September 28, 1922. Forget the hammer blows for a second, just holding that rock in place like that is quite a feat in itself. I’d say that rock easily weighs 350 lbs. — likely more. Gust weighed around 185 pounds at the time.
