Gord Venables ~ The Overhead Squat
Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 by John Wood
A look at one of the original “York Gang” Gord Venables as he demonstrates the overhead squat, a movement you will have to master if you want to become an Olympic Weightlifter. At the 1944 Sr. Nationals, Gord finished third with a 710 pound total (behind Ellwood Holbrook and Bill Bush of Cincinnati). For years, Veenables also had a monthly column in Strength and Health Magazine entitled “Incredible But True!” which highlighted amazing feats of strength throughout history and the world.
