German Athletic Sports Club, 1909

Posted on Friday, April 9th, 2021 by John Wood
A look at the Athletic Sports Club Zelisheim (Germany), and their awesome training equipment, circa 1909. As was typical of the day, this sports club taught wrestling as well as weight lifting. Note the squared handles of their kettlebells — a typical feature of German kettlebells as they were more conducive to juggling. Evidently this sports club is still going strong in 2021!
