How Much You Should Weigh and Measure – Strength Magazine – November, 1926

Time to the speeder, height to the pole vaulter, and distance to the hammer thrower are not one iota more important than the inches on the tape measure are to the muscle builder. How much he weighs and measures, and how much he ought to weigh and measure, are subjects of momentous interest, to him. As the scales announce an increased body weight and the little inch marks on the tape line become more numerous, he feels that life’s dream can come true.
