Developing Shapely Muscles – Strength Magazine – June, 1926

Most of those who take up physical training do so for the main purpose of developing an admirable shape. A lot of them may not care to admit it, but this does not alter the fact that most people want to have a body that will look well and be admired in a bathing suit, athletic costume, or in street clothes. Health and strength is desired, too, of course, but a clean-cut, muscular figure is the most craved of all physical assets.
