Strong and Shapely Legs – Strength Magazine – April, 1925

Developing good legs is a problem worth puzzling over, not only during the bathing suit season, but all the year round. They are certainly wot:th working for-an asset to be desired not for beauty’s sake alone, but for the strength they represent. Shapely legs are sturdy ones, and the girl with sturdy legs is the one who walks well, skates well, dances well, and who can stand the long hike or the hard mountain climb without breaking under the strain. Here again strength and beauty are one. If you want to make your legs beautiful, make them strong, for if you make them strong the contours will take care of themselves.
