Association Of Oldtime Barbell And Strongmen
Attending the AOBS dinner in New Jersey is quite interesting. At the hotel and throughout the evening you have a chance to visit with some of the greatest strength performers throughout the world.
In casual conversations you can learn tips about training. It is fun to listen to the avenues that these athletes take to enhance their enormous strength.
After the dinner ends strongmen bend steel in the lobby of the Marriott until the wee hours of the morning.
This year about 300 people attended to honor the great Dennis Rogers, the Grandmaster of Strongman. Following the reception the young strongmen of America put on quite a show.
They ripped up New York City phone books
They busted baseball bats across their heads
They bent steel while held in their mouths
They rolled up steel
They snapped chains
They drove spikes through 3 inch planks with their hands
What you learn is that we have a long way to go in developing the hand strength of our athletes that play sport. Those that attend to hand strength will change the game. Get Strong!
