Jean Baillargeon’s Bridge
Posted on Thursday, February 28th, 2019 by John Wood
Jean Baillargeon was one of famed Brothers Baillargeon, (and perhaps the strongest of them all, which is really saying something.) Looks to be about 230 pounds on the bar. It is unclear whether he pulled the weight over, bounced it off his belly or chest, or if the barbell was handed to him, but either way, simply holding this amount of weight in this position (all of it supported by the neck musculature) is VERY impressive. Jean was also a professional wrestler so the ability to bridge with a substantial amount of weight I’m sure came in very handy.
