Bob Hoffman’s Favorite Squat

Posted on Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 by John Wood
Here’s a classic shot of Bob Hoffman at the old Broad Street Gym demonstrating one of his favorite exercises, squatting on the toes.

The fellow on the left is Frank Findley, the great physical culture coach and gym owner from Australia.
