Strength Posing Competition – Strength Magazine – December, 1924

There are two reasons why we are running a posing competition. First, to stimulate more interest in the body culturist’s program that will give him encouragement to strive for some definite object. Secondly, we are aware that many of our readers have wonderful physiques, but that they are too deficient in the art of posing the body to display their development in the meritorious way they deserve; which has convinced us that a posing competition would create a keener competitive spirit, that would cause a student of development to analyze his position more seriously, and create poses that would show his development to an advantage, and we hope, in many cases it will develop an originality of style in the art of posing.
