"David Whitley, whose strongman lineage goes back to the Mighty Atom, has greatly enriched our kettlebell knowledge. This fine Southern gentleman has a big brain and a big heart."
—Pavel Tsatsouline, Chief RKC Instructor
The Iron Tamer Philosophy
Old-timers of the iron game knew how to maximize their bodies, squeezing out every possible ounce of functional strength. Looks, while a consideration, were secondary. Just look at men like Arthur Saxon and Eugene Sandow. These were men of exceptional strength as well as ideal proportion. They knew that without strength, muscle was just in the way.
Sadly, somewhere along the way this idea was lost. The "Jolly Game of Taming Iron" described by Russian Olympic lifter Yuri Vlasov has given way to the chrome machines and color-coded Ken-and-Barbie dumbells of today.
Following the lead of Pavel Tsatsouline, Iron Tamer is about reclaiming our past. If you are looking for discussion about the latest super-supplement, elliptical machines or muscle isolation techniques, this is not the place for you.
