Eugen Sandow was a pioneer of strength training and bodybuilding.  Long before steroids or technology began to inform discussions about strength and phsyique, Sandow achieved incredible results with kettlebells, barbells, and other basic training methods that many today would consider “radical” in their simplicity.

Sandow died prematurely under debatable circumstances.  Many hold that after pushing his car out of the mud, Sandow died of a stroke.  Others insist that evidence suggests that Sandow died of complications related to syphilis.  Regardless of the manner of his death, Sandow was a pioneer in his field and he may never be matched.
