Super Strength: The Classic Strength Manual

97 pages1 hour


Abridged Edition of the classic 1924 strength manual written by the early strength and barbell pioneer, Alan Calvert.

Alan Calvert was one of the most important and most under-rated figures in the history of physical culture. He was the founder and publisher of Strength Magazine and the founder of Milo Barbell Company in the early 1900s. Milo was the first mass produced plate loaded modern barbell. Strength Magazine was an early leader in physical culture and Calvert was, perhaps, the greatest authority in the art and science of training for strength in the early twentieth century.

This book covers all the basic lifts but, more interestingly, provides a valuable insight into the early culture and practices of weight-lifting and bodybuilding.
