the inventor of the flye exercise for chest was jake hitchens of the york barbell club. he also is purported to have owned 78 new cadillacs over a period of 24 years two at a time a hardtop for bad weather and a convertable for sunny days. he would trade them in for a new one when the whitewall tires would get dirty. he ran a very successful septic tank business. of the business he said it pays well but you gotta take a lot of crap.

With all due respect to Funk51:

Ancient Greek and Roman fresco's had pictures of their athletes holding DB shaped weights (stone, no doubt..or crude mental) when long jumping   and running. Their soldiers also trained with DB like equipment. Also longer handle weighted bars to get strength in the arms.

Wonder when shot loaded BB's & Db's were first used. Or even the revolving  Olympic bar? Men use to train with lighter cannon balls, back in the middle ages. Probably the kettle bell developed from that, just mold a handle  on a cannon ball, I guess..

Good post Funky Bro.. yes a very tough early bare knuckled boxer.. who invented the Dumbbell be it solid and early exercises as we know today. In France too the Dumbbell was a training tool even for Savate Boxers. Indeed when i boxed we used light weights in punching. Develops real stamina to keep holding your hands up. I think we can thank Tom Owen too for the Nieder press.
