Adolph Nordquest – Strength Magazine – May, 1917

Adolph is built on rather more slender lines than his brother Joe. His bones are smaller, and his limbs are more tapering. At first glance, Joe’s forearm appears much larger than Adolph’s but that is because Joe’s arm is very large right above the wrist on account of his having larger bones. At a point just below the elbow, Adolph’s arm is almost as large as Joe’s – it has to be big and strong to account for that tremendous gripping power which Adolph possesses. But all his strength is not confined in his forearms. If you look at these pictures you will be
unable to detect a weak spot in his makeup.
