From what I've heard Grimek said that his older brother was even stronger than him.
By the way, olympic lifting without shoes with an elevated heel... that's impressive!

Well John Grimek was very agile and flexible +his limbs had the right proportions and angles so I believe that he could get into deep squats without compromising his back.

This isn't a kind of great photo of Grimek. The theme of the day is: say yourself is if this is...John Grimek!
