Walter Eddy – May, 1916

The first thing that impressed us on looking at Mr. Eddy’s pictures is the great size and undoubted strength of the thighs. I have always said that wide hips are just as important to a Strong Man as wide shoulders are. Note what food records Mr. Eddy makes in the quick lifts. Few men can show a difference of 52 pounds between their Two-Arm Press record, and Two-Arm Jerk record. Mr. Eddy is evidently an adept at utilizing the full strength of those powerful legs and hips.
