Arthur Saxon Gives His Brothers a Lift
Posted on Thursday, April 8th, 2021 by John Wood
Here’s a rare image of Arthur Saxon that you probably haven’t seen before. Here, Arthur gives his brothers a lift — if you are keeping score at home, that’s a 320 lb. barbell, plus Hermann and Kurk Saxon for a total over 670 pounds held overhead. Many critics of the day said that Arthur Saxon was simply “too small” to possess such great strength. What they didn’t know (and what Saxon, to his credit, understood very well) was that there was much more to strength than just the size of the muscles.
