Mike Brown is a modern day Renaissance man who has written several unique books on various aspects of strength training (as well as many other unique topics.) Judging by the size of that arm, I’d say Mike looks like he knows a thing or two about building strength and power. Mike was always a big fan of expander training and came up with his own unique “Samson Cables” set which he used to advertise in the back of Ironman Magazine. Theses handles actually unscrew apart so the bands can be looped on to them – an ingenious design, really. Here’s a look at Mike around the time he wrote Iron Claws: Grip Development and Bench Press Course which is definitely worth a look.
