Pumping iron... the Victorian way: The bizarre contraptions from the late 19th Century that would go on to inspire modern gym equipment
•Fascinating images taken in 1892 show people using equipment designed by Dr Gustav Zander
•Dr Zander believed that muscle had to be built up gradually, and opened first gym back in 1865
•The weightlifting equipment was created so that users could work out at the rate they were most comfortable
