The Mat – Strength Magazine – March, 1925

I wish to call your attention to the three photos shown this month of James F. Brenner, of Clairton, Pennsylvania, for various reasons which will be explained later. Mr. Brenner is an ardent disciple of body-building, and states that he owes all his physical development and strength to the conscientious ·practice of progressive exercise with the use of bar-bells. This, I know, is correct even with .. out his telling me, as no other system or practice of physical exercise can create the muscular development which the use of bar-bells can and does produce.
