I CAN LIFT HALF A TON ON THE WRESTLER'S BRIDGE
By Clevio Massimo
Published in Muscle Builder 1925

"I can lift 1,000 pounds on a Wrestler’s Bridge. I am the world’s champion at that style of lifting. The nearest approach to my record was a Wrestler’s Bridge lift of 850 pounds made some time ago. In my line I fear no rival. Why should I with an edge of 150 pounds on my nearest competitor. Besides, I am increasing my muscular development and adding to my strength constantly by persistent exercises and a strict adherence to diet at all times, and someday – probably in the near future – I shall better my own record."

THANKS DIANE,
GOOD STORY ABOUT CLEVE MASSIMO. CERTAINLY WAS AN ALL ROUND STRONGMAN, PERFORMER AND WRESTLER. WHILE OTHERS MAY DISAGREE I TOO HAVE FOUND THE WRESTLERS BRIDGE TO BE NOT JUST A GREAT NECK EXERCISE BUT ALSO EXCELLENT FOR SPINE AND BACK HEALTH.
REGARDS, PETER.
