- In a contest at finger-pulling, in which Maxick was "unbeatable," Maxick could pull a 200-pound opponent clear across the table that separated the two men.
- He pressed van Diggelen (185 pounds) overhead 16 times with his right arm, while holding in his left hand a glass of beer full to the brim, without spilling a drop. Earlier that same day, he had pressed Fred Storbeek (205 pounds), who was then the heavyweight British Empire Boxing Champion, 11 times with his right arm.
- Holding van Diggelen aloft on one arm, Maxick ran up two flights of stairs with him and then ran down the two flights. Then standing on his hands, he in that position ran up the two flights and down again.
Pretty amazing stuff right? And Maxick attributes his strength to muscle control. But is it...
This topic is covered even more in depth in the books and DVD's, but for now a simple explanation will suffice. When you try to lift a weight your muscles contract to do it. The stronger the contraction the more you can lift. This is one side of muscle control, the simple aspect that most people see and never move beyond. By learning to contract your muscles, harder and better, you'll be able to lift more weight.
The other side, and even more important aspect of muscle control, is RELAXATION.
When you contract maximally, notice that surrounding muscles contract as well. This includes the antagonistic muscles to the one's you're trying to lift with. These means you're stepping on the brakes the same time you're stepping on the gas!
But through the proper practice of muscle control you can unlock those breaks, using the exact amount of contraction where needed, and keeping everything else relaxed as needed, for Effortless Strength.
Many of the old time strongmen were practioners of muscle control. Eugene Sandow would sit and read his morning newspaper while "flicking" his muscles. This, he said, was all the exercise he needed.
