Archie Gillespie – Strength Magazine – March, 1915

Mr. Gillespie is shown completing a right-arm “Snatch Lift” with a LARGE SIZE Milo Triplex Bell. A splendid example of poise. Such balance and grace as this is a symbol of controlled strength. In a “Snatch Lift” the barbell is tossed in one motion from the ground to full arm’s length above the head. No
slow, clumsy man can “snatch” 125 pounds. The “Snatch” is one of the supreme tests of combined strength and speed.
