Physical Culture and
Long & Rich History
Full of Physical Artifacts ranging
from the amazing to the fun.
Barbells & Dumbbells are just the tip of the iceberg. The broad world of Physical Culture had many performers, competitors and an equally interesting plethora of fine physical artifacts.
Roger LaPointe, Atomic Athletic President, has had many opportunities to see memorabilia that most people will never have a chance to check out in person. Now you can see some of these pieces of history on your own DVD.
This is your chance to witness the world of weightlifting and strength sports as it has never been seen before.
You will see individual pieces from a number of private collections. Footage includes the first Memorabilia Section of the Association of Old Time Barbell& Strongmen with Vic Boff, Dr. Ken Leistner’s memorabilia tour of his gym, Bill Pearl’s private collection tour, and a few other little gems. Here is a partial list of some of the specifics:
-See the largest Sim Kehoe Indian Club to surface in years;
-Bill Pearl’s rare arcade strength tester;
-the Rarest of MILO Bar Bell Collectables;
-Vic Boff’s opinion of the memorabilia meeting at the Association of Old Time Barbell & Strongmen Dinner
-Dr. Ken Leistner’s photo tour of the ultimate garage gym;
-and much more!
This is not a Hollywood production, but a personal and individual tour of some of the really great physical artifacts, and their stories, from the world of strength training. Sometimes there is a little too much detail and sometimes not enough. Whatever your interest in Strength Training Past, this video will leave you wanting more. On the original screening, the Atomic Athletic guys all wanted to start their own collections, of new and old equipment, as well as some of the more essoteric items. Don't be left behind.
Only available on DVD, 58 minutes total length.
