View the web version of the email. Alexander Zass and the Prison Workout A recent thread on the Transformetrics Forum discussed how men confined to prison can get in such awesome physical shape. In Isometric Power Revolution , I offer some examples of how individuals, confined against their wills, used Isometric Contraction to get—and stay—strong.

One of the most impressive of those examples was Alexander Zass. He became known worldwide for his ability to bend thick iron bars and snap chains with his bare hands. But how did Zass gain such strength? While before the war he had been a strong man who worked out faithfully using conventional methods, once he was in prison—shackled in solitary confinement—his body began to deteriorate from lack of activity and exercise.

He soon began to powerfully push and pull on his prison bars and chains as a means of exercise. Not only did he find that he was able to rebuild his former strength and physique. This form of dynamic exercise actually took him to a level of strength that he had never enjoyed before. Zass became so strong there in solitary confinement, that he was ultimately able to bend the iron bars of his prison window, rip them out, bend one bar into a hook to scale a wall, snap the chains from his manacles—and escape!

Not only will you find other inspiring and challenging stories like this, but I also provide a comprehensive Isometric program that will strengthen and sculpt every muscle in your entire body.

And yes, it can literally be done anytime, anywhere. Check it out! Do you know someone who would benefit from the challenge and inspiration of these Daily Transformations e-mails?

Alexander Zass

In Strongman Mastery by admin June 15, 38 Comments Alexander Zass is one of my favorite oldtime strongmen of course I like them all, but a few stand out to me. He was known as the Amazing Samson and performed all over Russia and Europe back in his day. One of the most amazing things about him was that he escaped from POW camps four different times during the war! Fortunately there is some surviving video footage of him. This video shows him breaking chains across his chest, doing some long bar bending , being beaten by sledgehammers while in a bridge feat, and then being hit in the stomach.
