Bob Hoffman Old-School Body Building Book Archive

Bob Hoffman established the York Barbell company in 1932. With the weight lifting equipment and publications produced by his company, Hoffman had a profound influence on the fitness industry.

Although many of Hoffman’s publications have been out of print for some time, his books can be found on the site, “Eugen Sandow & The Golden Age of Iron Men” - a website primarily devoted to reproducing out of print collections of bodybuilding and weight lifting books circa “the strong man era”.

Although these books tend to be fiarly old, much of the material hasn’t changed much.  In fact, books like the “York Handbalancing Course” are still very informative.
