Gust Lessis
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.
