This story was told to me by my good friend and former training partner, Kevin Deweese. A young man told Kevin that he'd like to train, look and be strong like Bill Kazmaier (Kaz). For those that don't know, Kaz was a world-class powerlifter and strongman. He was (and still is) inhumanly big and strong. The guy is massive. Appropriately, Kevin has been having this young man do heavy Prowler walks/runs, etc. Kevin asked the young man if he did any conditioning over the weekend. The kid responded, "Yeah, I did some conditioning. I did the Rower for about 30 minutes. lt was a great workout." Kevin stared at him for a long time. After a 10 minutes of silence, Kevin asked, "Hey, have you seen those old videos of Kaz using the rower? They're on YouTube." "Really? He used the Rower?!" "Nope."
