Posing For Muscular Display – Strength Magazine – January, 1917

The athlete should now turn his right side to the audience, place left hand at back of waist, rest right hand on top of head, throw out the chest as far as possible, and harden the muscles which lie beneath the armpit. This pose brings into partial relief the saw-like edge of the serratus magnus muscle. You can see this plainly in Figure 12. This beautiful pose is by Mr. Polonic, and shows his remarkable depth of chest. It is the ideal pose for showing the size and shape of the chest.
