The Mat – Strength Magazine – March, 1930

To begin with, it should be timely to mention the age of this man. He is twenty-six, possibly close to twenty-seven; he is one or two inches short of being six feet in height and has been practicing bar bell exercise and lifting for several years. I should imagine that a large number of my regular readers would think they could give our friend a reason for his seemingly unexplainable increase in strength and condition, by which I mean those readers who have been up against a similar predicament and have seen fit to heed my advice.
