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.
Motivating and entertaining !
