  • 2 months ago
Terry Todd; writer, academic, journalist, champion lifter, coach, sport promoter, founder of the H.J. Lutcher Stark Center for Physical Culture and Sports at the University of Texas at Austin, and Director of the Arnold Strongman Classic.

Also known as the Commissioner of Power, Terry has been a major influencer in physical culture and sport for decades. Terry touched and helped reshape nearly all aspects of the field of strength training, brought the study of strength into academic respectability, and particularly helped create the modern sport of Strongman.

He was involved in the birth and development of both men's and women's powerlifting, personally coached two of the strongest men in history—Bill Kazmaier and Mark Henry (and his wife Jan Todd, a pioneer in women's powerlifting), and was famous for his encyclopedic knowledge of strength history and his richly detailed, humorous stories. He also played a particularly important role in debunking the belief that lifting weights would make one "musclebound."
