Shown here is the cover of the September, 1944 issue of Strength and Health Magazine, featuring Steve Stanko. He had won both the 1944 AAU Mr. America and Junior. Mr. America titles only a. few months before. This was not the first time Stanko graced the cover of Strength and Health, nor was it the last.
Just a few years earlier, in 1941, Stanko was the first man to officially break the 1000-pound total in the three Olympic lifts (which, very surprisingly, did not even get him a cover shot or a mention) ...and just a few years later, in 1947, Stanko would go on to become the very first Mr. Universe winner.

Stanko Clash of the Titans: Grimek vs. Stanko Clash of the Titans: Grimek vs. Stanko What would happen if two of the greatest strength athletes in history went head to head? Whether bodybuilding, olympic lifting or unusual feats of strength, I would say the matchup between John Grimek and Steve Stanko is pretty evenly matched.

Steve Stanko, 1944 AAU Mr. America, often used cables for training his arms. In this shot Steve appears to be using the "flat band"-type of York Chest Expander and I'd say it's doing the job pretty well.

Steve Stanko - Hand Grippers Steve Stanko was strong everywhere, he would have to be to become the first man to break the 1000 pound barrier in Olympic weightlifting.
He was no slouch in the grip strength department either, having easily performed feats like this and yes, he trained with hand grippers too.
Wonder what he could have done on the #3?
