History

A Coterie Of The Strongest Men In The United States – Strength Magazine – July, 1920

“The individual records of these active athletes make most interesting reading. Young (the National amateur champion) has successfully negotiated 294 pounds
in the two-arm clean and jerk; 204 pounds in the one-arm clean and jerk; 170 pounds in the one-arm snatch and 286 pounds in the bent press. He has also easily lifted the limit on the club scales (3200 pounds) with the back lift, and holds all amateur quick lift records, won in San Francisco in 1915 under A.A.U. sanction.”
