Aquiring Perfect Proportions – Strength Magazine – January, 1917

Almost any man between the ages of 16 and 45 can acquire muscular development and strength very rapidly, providing he takes the right kind of exercise, and, what is even more important, he can obtain the perfect health that goes with a perfectly developed body. In making this statement, I have in mind, of course, men who are sound. I do not include chronic invalids, and I do not believe that men with tuberculosis, or kidney trouble in a severe form, or valvular trouble of the heart, or men who have constitutions which have been ruined by the ravages of sexual disease and over-indulgence, can be improved much by any kind of exercise.
