The Mat – Strength Magazine – October, 1925

It certainly is remarkable to see how all those who are working for better bodies and greater strength have become interested in the sport of wrist turning. This test of arm strength was always looked upon as a sport belonging to the strong men only. That is, it was the one sport professional strong men indulged in between themselves as a pastime. It is a sport that gives vigorous play to the arm, and calls for powerful action of the wrist and the front of being much heavier than the other. Everything is equal, with the result resting upon the strongest arm.
