Bullworker: the German Secret Weapon to Build Muscle Mass

By: Frank Sherrill

Old Style Muscle Building
Back in the late 1960's a German named Gert F Koelbel, invented an exercise device called the Tensolator which later on was renamed the Bullworker.
This device was based on using the principles of Isometrics or Static Contraction.
Bullworker sales took off like a turbo charged skyrocket, reaching sales of 4 million by the middle of the 1980's.
What's remarkable about this is that they never used T.V. advertising. The Bullworker was mostly sold from ads in comic books, some wrestling and bodybuilding magazines.


The Greatest
n the "Greatest" Muhammad Ali used the exerciser and became one of their spokes model. Our current Governor of California Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger also used and modeled for the Bullworker.
Olympic Hope
addition the German Olympic Power Lifting team of that time trained with the Bullworker and some feel that the incredible results and medals they achieved was mostly due to their Bullworker training.
The most visible proponent of the Bullworker was actually Bruce Lee who at that time was a weight-training fanatic, until he injured his body doing an exercise called "Good Mornings."
Warning Will Robinson
You don't know what a "good morning" is, let me describe the movement. Take a barbell and place it behind your neck and then bend forward from the waist to till your head is at approximately waist high. Today no one should do that exercise since it has been recognized as a very angerous exercise.
So why haven't you heard of this muscle building miracle? You can change that now.
