Gripping for Strength – Strength Magazine – January, 1926

There is probably a time in everyone’s life when he wishes to be stronger and have more endurance. This may first make itself known in boyhood, in an argument with the school bully, or it may manifest itself in middle age, when a man commences to feel himself slipping. If you would ask one hundred boys if they would like to double their present strength, you would probably receive one hundred answers in the affirmative. The answer is revealed in the Bible adage, “The glory of young men is their strength.”
