The Mat – Strength Magazine – August, 1925

Dear Editor : Which do you consider the strongest part of the body? Is it the big leg muscles or the back? I know that when I pick up a heavy sack of wheat or pig iron the effort
is felt on the legs and more so on the back, and I am curious to know which is the strongest part of the body. Hope you will tell us in your Mat talks, for I feel it will be interesting to every one who studies the development of the body and feats of strength.
