these old time strongmen were the real deal, their way of training was the best because they did it all naturally, no supplements or steroids in those days.

HASH(0x937c50b8) out of 5 stars A body bulder who left his mark on history 23 Jan. 2013
By strength builder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Eugen Sandow is the father of body building and was dominant during the Victorian era on a world wide basis. Before Sandow strongmen had tended to be of the mastodon type with many of them weighing over 300 pounds.

In his act Sandow lifted heavy weights, an ability that he developed by lifting heavy weights. The secret to his development,however, was training with dumbells as light as 7 pounds, but combined with great concentration and projection into the muscle.

In earlier books Sandow had emphasized the importance of using "the will" for the development of strength and muscularity which he had learned from his mentor Professor Attila.

In this book,however, he takes the concept of muscle control and mental projection to a new level which is probably the result of his having come in contact with Alois P. Swoboda on his trip to America.

Swoboda was the inventor of the mail order muscle building course which he used to promote his "Conscious Evolution" mind and muscle control course and was the mentor of Charles Atlas who said,"Everything that I know I learned from A.P.Swoboda".

This is a very interesting and historically significant book about the bodybuilding industry.

HASH(0x937c5f04) out of 5 stars Hoping for more. 4 Nov. 2013
By William J. Brodbeck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought this for the "old timey" strength training info. Unfortunately, it is written in such an arcane style that it was difficult to extract. Not really the books fault so I didn't downgrade it for that reason. Lots of interesting stuff. It just wasn't as useful as I had been hoping.

Although the language is is somewhat archaic, it is none the less an informative book on muscle fitness. I found it
