Unknown Strongman Chuck Ahrens

Chuck Ahrens is a name that popped up frequently when reading about the old Muscle Beach gang. This was a time when the line between health, strength, and appearance was somewhat blurred and many lifters simply lifted in the gym in front of witnesses rather than in contests.
Chuck's pressing and curling strength were legendary and perhaps at times exaggerated. This doesn't diminish his abilities or willingness to push the envelope of physical prowess. Below is an article which contains exhaustive research on Chuck.

Enjoying the blog Tom. Lots of interesting things. Post some pics of you with the big clubs. Or any other training pics. Would be good to see.
