Owen L. Thomas – Strength Magazine – March, 1920

Mr. Owen L. Thomas is a young man about 21 years old. He bought a bell from me nearly three years ago; and although he has not trained regularly, he has in that time increased his normal chest from 33 Yz inches to 40 inches, his upper arm from 12 inches to 14,( inches, and his thigh from 19 inches to 22 inches. He stands about five feet eight inches in height. As soon as you look at Mr. Thomas’ pictures, you will notice the extraordinary size of the lower chest. He carries no surplus flesh on the abdomen, but has developed an extraordinary natural chest; that is to say, the size of the rib box is way above the average.
