Friday Flicks: 1959 York Barbell Club Vintage Weightlifting Footage - Feat. Tommy Kono

Welcome to the Friday Flicks! Every Friday we kick off your weekend with a fun, fitness-related video you've never seen before. If you've missed previous weeks, you can catch up on them HERE!

 

This week we're coming to you straight from the "Muscle Metropolis" of York, Pennsylvania with some vintage footage from the 1959 A.A.U. Weightlifting Championships. We start off with some not-so-impressive 'Halfway Hercules' competitors, as coined by the narrator, and finish off with 'the big boys,' including weightlifting legend Tommy Kono.
