Johann Martin: Not The Jack, But The Master Of All Moves.

I remember posting about Johann Martin earlier in my blog, but I am unable to trace it back. Above all, I found his videos to be truly inspiring and definitely thought that they are worth watching again and again.
As you can view in this video, Johann Martin has been practicing many of these lifts for over 50 years. You might have heard the quote which says, “Jack of all Master of none.” But Johann Martin has changed the meaning of the above quote, for he simply is The Master of all moves. In the video you can watch him juggle with very heavy kettlebells with ease, perform Turkish getups, various hand balancing stunts, Olympic lifting (snatch and clean and jerk), strength training with heavy weights, juggling weighted plates, performing wheel rollouts, and many many many more moves. Above all, he is able to perform many of these stunts even at the ripe age of 63 years.
PS: Don’t be deceived by the YouTube video title, for it means 50 years of struggle with the iron. I should again thank Ross for making my job easy.
