Farmboy strength

John Allen Hannah

John Allen Hannah who spent his whole professional career in New England Patriots and was dubbed "The Greatest Offensive Lineman of All Time" by Sports Illustrated attributed impact of physical labour he performed growing up on a farm to his athletic success.

"When you lift weights, you are specific in the muscles that you work and it tends to bind you up," Hannah explained. "Loading trucks and doing real work keeps your muscles less rigid because they get used to working together." - John Hannah.

Working hours upon hours daily on a farm involved moving heavy awkward objects in different directions and lots of high frequency moderate intensity work developed a tremendous base of work capacity and tendon/ligamen strength. All of that contributed to John becoming Herculean strong and able to dominate opponents on the field at the highest level.
