The Jackson Barbell (Part II)

As noted in the previous Part Ten of this series, Andy Jackson produced what was considered by many to be the finest Olympic barbell set in the world as a one man manufacturing force. That he did it from the basement of his house in New Jersey made him truly unique. Unlike most involved in weight training, many fellows from my neighborhood knew the different bars, plates, and nuances of the available equipment. There was quite a bit of weight training activity in the neighborhood because it was a “fighting place” and as I have written in numerous articles through the decades, a lot of local men trained in an era when weight training of any kind was not a popular activity. Knowing you would have to fight or protect your family or yourself on the street at some time, was a great incentive to become stronger. Former NFL player Lyle Alzado was two years behind me in high school and to give perspective on the way things were, I often refer others to the numerous comments he made when describing the neighborhood and his own violent past in his many television and print interviews to present a “feel” for the way it was.
