Attaining Muscular Proportions – Strength Magazine – August, 1929

Of next importance to the feeling of well being or health, the majority of strength enthusiasts are primarily interested in the way they shape up in the eyes of others-or, as we might put it, the relative proportions of each part of the body to the physique as a whole. In the same sense, quality has an equal standing with quantity, referring entirely to muscular proportions; as you desire proportionate strength of the muscles to your entire physique as much as you desire proportionate muscular development. They go hand in hand, and we expect the well built man to possess strength in proportion to his development.
