When I went and spent a week training with Adam Glass in Minot, he talked a lot about grandmaster strongman Dennis Rogers. I had seen several of Dennis’ videos and owned his old time strongman Phonebook tearing DVD, but it was very interesting to talk to someone who had actually spent some time interacting with him.
There is a pretty funny comment on that youtube video about Dennis not actually being very strong. If I was half as strong as he was, I would still be very, very strong.
PS: If you’re in the Twin Cities area and you’re looking for a gym, The Movement (run by Adam t. Glass) offers a fantastic Minneapolis boot camp.
