Afterword

I started Marvin on weights a couple of years ago on a
bet. It was a mistake. He got to like it. Marvin's training
methods are as simple as he is. He went from a skinny nut to
a bulky nut in nothing flat by squatting three times a week
and eating everything that didn't bite back.
Marvin avoids work like the bubonic plague. His only
other recreation is the beach. He walks around with his
chest stuck out, eats hamburgers, and kicks sand in everyone's face (McCallum, 1968a, p. 13).*

If Marvin could get big and strong, so can you—but be
prepared for the results. Following this program will tend
to put you in the spotlight: You are going to start to look
like someone with muscles, because you are going to build
some. Not everyone will end up looking like John Grimek
or Arnold Schwarzenegger, but everyone can built a body
that's more than impressive, and the results are going to
show in a lot of ways.
All this progress, all this new-found muscle mass and
power, should be able to carry a small new responsibility:
that of being modest about your might. For decades sound
bodybuilding programs were known by their practitioners
to provide enormous benefits to one's development,
strength, health, and outlook. Unfortunately one of the
things that worked against the public's widespread accep*True McCallumites will recognize that this quotation is taken out of context,
but—with due apologies to Marvin and John—it illustrated our point too well to
pass up.

As a small price to pay in return for all that weight training gave you.tance of weight training was the tendency of a few bodybuilders to be showoffs ("lat spreaders") or worse. recognize that you are now a public relations agent for the Iron Game (McCallum. . bullies. 1966) and conduct yourself in a manner worthy of the activity that allowed you to completely retool yourself.
