Bruno’s Barrels

Posted on Thursday, October 12th, 2017 by John Wood
Who else? The incomparable Bruno Sammartino lifts a couple beer kegs… I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they were full since Bruno is a real powerhouse, but if you’ve ever handled any kegs like these, you know that even if they were partially filled, lifting them would be a formidable challenge.

Bruno Sammartino

Posted on Thursday, July 10th, 2014 by John Wood

Talk about “built for strength,” this rare image of the great Bruno Sammartino highlights his incredible bone structure. No wonder he toyed with 550+ lb bench presses and wiped the mat with pretty much everyone he ever faced in the ring… I sure wouldn’t want to be at the other end of THAT fist.

The Bruno Course of Bodybuilding

Posted on Sunday, March 18th, 2012 by John Wood

Here’s a look at the cover of the incredibly rare “Bruno Course of Bodybuilding” authored by The Living Legend himself, Bruno Sammartino. You can see by Bruno’s thick bone structure that he was a man built for some serious horsepower but don’t forget that he still had to work for his strength.

In The Bruno Course, he covers a dozen or so basic exercises which were his favorites, some “weight” exercises, some bodyweight movements and some conditioning work… simple, but highly effective. You can read more about The Bruno Course in The Dellinger Files Volume I.
