A look at Polish Strongman and Cleveland, Ohio legendStanley Radwan and a horseshoe that he just broke in his powerful hands. Geez, look at those mitts. Most likely this was taken when Radwan served in the Navy.

John grunn Marx

At an exhibition in Paris, in the year 1905, ‘The Luxembourg Hercules’ John Grunn Marx bent and broke three horseshoes in the span of 2 minutes and 15 seconds. One of these horseshoes is shown above. Marx was descended from a long line of blacksmiths and was famed for his grip and forearm strength. More of Marx’s strength feats will be covered in subsequent posts.
