The Mat – Strength Magazine – September, 1925

Strange as it may seem, very few readers write to me about the development of the deltoid muscles. This is not because those muscles are so well developed on the average body culturists as to call for no further attention-far from it! The trouble is that they-are not shapely enough. I receive hundreds of photographs monthly from aspiring enthusiasts, and in the majority of cases the deltoids are generally found to be flat or stringy, without the fullness which characterizes these shoulder muscles when well formed.
