I’ve got some exciting projects in the works. More on those later. For now I wanted to share this video with you of Johann Martin in case you haven’t seen it.
To me this guy is the ultimate athlete. Basically he does many of the things I do, he’s just been doing them for over 50 years.
You have sledgehammer leveraging, kettlebell juggling, bottoms up kettlebell work, muscling out weights, big weight supports including in a bridge, various hand balancing and other bodyweight feats, Olympic and Powerlifting and more.
It appears to me this guy was a student of Valentin Dikul. I say this for several reasons. Because of all the different things he does like kettlebell and steel ball juggling. And then you have the bridge feat which is called the ‘Dikulis Pyramide’ in the video. For more on Valentin Dikul check out this post, another very strong man.
They say a jack of all trades and master of none? I think Johann proves that wrong! There is no single strength specialty here unless you call ‘Being Strong’ a specialty.
At 63 years Johann Martin can do a lot. I’m happy to say I’m on the same path. You can learn about some of what he does here at Legendary Strength. For the handstand skills check out Lost Art of Hand Balancing. And of course for Kettlebell Juggling go here.
And above all consistently train. And you too in 50 years can do some amazing things.
