How Much Can a Man Gain in Three or Four Months’ Exercise – Strength Magazine – September, 1915

About 1906 a young lifter wrote a letter to an English gymnastic magazine, and stated that in four months’ training he had increased his chest nine inches in girth, and had increased his biceps three inches, his thighs four inches. In the next issue of the same magazine almost all the leading trainers in England took exception to this man’s letter, and claimed that it was impossible for anyone to make the gains that he claimed. He was able to prove that his statements were correct.
