Milo Built Men Have Both– Where is Yours?
Dear Sirs:
February 15th, 1921
It gives me pleasure to write and tell you of the benefits I’ve received from the barbell I purchased from you about ten months ago. In my estimation progressive barbell exercise is unquestionably without an equal and the only method where results are proportionate to the effort made. In my case it has in a few months produced a good physique and perfect health, and this from poor material. I have made from 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 gain in limb measurements besides correcting a displaced vertebrae, a condition resulting from an injury received in early childhood.
