The Mat – Strength Magazine – August, 1929

We presume Mat fans will be thoroughly interested in knowing something of the technicality that ruined the One Hand Jerk of Arnie Sundberg in the National A.A.U. Championships. The rules as adopted by the A.A.U. are indefinite on this point, as no mention is made of the fact that it is prohibited to rest the bar on the shoulder; in fact, the rules state that the bar may be in contact with the shoulder.
