Isometrics And Isometric Training: Alexander Zass The Father Of Isometrics

Alexander Zass-The Amazing Samson 1888 - 1962

Zass was born in Vilna, Poland in 1888, but lived most of his early years in Russia and after 1924 in Britain. He lifted a 500 pound girder with his teeth, carried a small horse, caught a woman fired from a cannon and allowed professional boxers to hit him in the stomach, but his greatest talents were in bending steel bars and breaking chains which were the center piece of his music hall exhibitions.

Tree Climber

At first he developed himself by climbing trees, running and with home made dumbells and barbells. Later he trained under some of the great Russian professional strongmen including Krelov, Anokhin, and Demetrioff who taught their systems in person and through correspondence. Anokhin taught his system to George Lurich who eventually became famous as a world champion strongman and wrestler.

Isometrics And Maximum Tension
Zass was very innovative and started bending green branches and twigs to develop his grip strength. Perhaps this was the start of his great belief in the application of isometrics and "maximum tension" (a concept that is present in Russian training methods to this day) for the development of strength. He believed such an approach superior to the use of weights in developing strength.

Walls in Prison are good exerciser

Whilst a prisoner of war he continued to develop his strength with the use of isometrics by pulling on the bars and chains. This episode and the knowledge that he obtained from it later became the basis of his mail order course which featured isometrics in the form of pulling on chains of various lengths.

Zass lived a very full and exciting life on many fronts. In addition to being a strongman he was also an accomplished animal trainer. At one time he worked for military intelligence in Russia and later as cover for his manager, Captain Howard, who was a British secret agent.

Unfortunately at the age of 74, Zass died, murdered in 1962.

The amazing thing is the fact that most old time strong lived very long lives. this is in sharp contrast to today’s steroid crazed professional bodybuilders.

But on the other side many of their student has failed to achieve all the things they are dreaming of. Instead some injured themselves and leaves the gym in the premature time. Often students have done the exercises in a very haphazard manner. They keep on following the old exerciese techniques that the past bodybuilders have thought they are using in their entire training regimens.
