Iron Roots Ep. 9 | George Hackenschmidt aka The Russian Lion


MANY years ago I got my hands on a book titled The Way to Live.

I loved the book. It was so simple yet so powerful. I was training athletes from my garage back then and I was already tired of the poser, fake BS in the "fitness industry".

I read this book about George Hackenschmidt aka The Russian Lion and damn, he was an animal. He was using basic dumbbell and barbell lifts, his nutrition and sleep / lifestyle habits were also basic. But his results were world class.

Here's some insight into the legend of The Russian Lion.
