Arm Development – Strength Magazine – November, 1915

Those of my readers who have seen pictures ‘by celebrated artist’s depicting scenes in Biblical and ancient history must have been struck by the enormous forearm development of the men. When I was a boy I used to pore over such pictures and wonder whether these men of the Bible, these Roman Legionaries, these soldiers of medieval Germany and Italy, really had such tremendously developed forearms – such development that when the arms were held straight, the forearm seemed very much larger than the upper arm.
