Here’s a rare look at Franz Stähr, the great early lifter from Vienna. Stähr was a member of the Osman Trio and one of the first men to ever put 200 lbs. overhead with one hand. At an exhibition on December 9, 1885, Stähr “put up” from the shoulder to overhead (what we would today call a push press) a 109 lb. dumbbell twenty five times! It’s not hard to see from this photo that he was a man of immense power.
