Eric Fiorillo Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Bill Hinbern to the broadcast.

Bill Hinbern is a strength historian, a strength athlete who is dedicated to over 50 years of teaching the value of strength and physical culture and the owner of the world famous web site.

Eric and Bill start the show right off talking about the lifting legend Pat Casey.

Pat was the first man to bench press 600 pounds and was great in other feats of strength. Pat Casey was also known as the king of the powerlifters.

Pat ran with a rough crowd as a young man in Southern California and was bullied quite a bit. At that pointed Pat opted to start lifting weights to build not only size but strength and power. The bench press was the start of great things to come for Pat and his strength career.

Eric and Bill talk about the evolution of the bench press and how back in the days past benches were usually purchased through Sears, Peary Rader, Joe Weider and Ed Jubinville. This was a big change from Pat’s days starting out when benches were made out of wood or rickety metal.

Training at the Redpath Gym in Los Angles Pat was nicknamed a “freak of nature.” This was said only in a complimentary nature.

Bill talks about Pat Casey’s winning attitude and being your own best cheerleader.

Pat kept meticulous records and set short term and long term goals.

Pat Casey like a lot of the greats were so ahead of their time.

Think about this strength feat for a moment. Pat could dip 380 pounds when weighing well over 300 pounds of body weight. The man was truly a tank and a true gentleman of the sport of strength.
