Doug Hepburn in Action! (British Pathé, 1953)

Admittedly this site has not given Doug Hepburn his due. A Canadian by birth, Hepburn was known the world over not only for his weightlifting and strongman feats. The above video shows Hepburn at the height of his strength prowess.

Filmed in 1953, the same year Hepburn won gold at the World Weightlifting Championships, this old Pathé video provides a glimpse at Hepburn’s raw power. Additionally if you’re interested, Hepburn’s training diary from 1953 is available here.

As always… Happy Lifting!
