Posted on Thursday, December 8th, 2016 by John Wood
A shot of a young Doug Hepburn performing what amounts to a “muscle out” with a friend performing a handstand on his outstretched arms. This picture was taken around 1950, then, and for a few years prior, Doug was a lifeguard at Vancouver’s famous Kitsilano beach. Doug took take a weight set with him and trained right on the sand — this was one of the most productive periods of his life.
