Inherited and Acquired Strength : (Original Version, Restored) – Earle Liederman

Inherited and Acquired Strength : (Original Version, Restored)

“I have two great articles of belief, the first being that the average young man can become very much stronger than he has any idea of; and the second, that if an aspirant follows the advice in the following pages he can attain great and permanent strength without any danger of overstrain, of stale- ness, or of loss of speed or energy. I might even say that great strength is possible for any young fellow unless he happens to be helplessly crippled. Even those who are lacking in size, in vigor, or who suffer from minor diseases, can first overcome their weaknesses by the medium of corrective, developing and invigorating exercises; and then, after their bodies have become properly shaped and muscled, can acquire that great strength which is the crowning glory of true manhood. I have seen so many weaklings become “Strong Men” that I have become convinced that the capability for possessing great strength is within all of us. And that any man, however weak, can become very strong if he has the ambition, the persistence and the knowledge. While I cannot give you the first two, I feel that I can help out on the information.” – Earle E. Liederman This is a restored and re-formatted edition of Liederman’s original 1927 booklet. The text remains exactly as written in 1927. A must have in your collection. Visit our website and see our many books at PhysicalCultureBooks.com

  • Speed and Strength : (Original Version, Restored) – Earle LiedermanSpeed and Strength : (Original Version, Restored) – Earle Liederman "Exercises of speed increase the activity of the respiratory organs with much less fatigue of the lungs and heart than is created by strength exercises, owing to the absence of forced muscular effort. Such effort occurs only accidentally in exercises of speed, but is compulsory in exercises of strength. But exercises of speed will not develop the bulk and strength of muscle as are […]

Again I am forced to admit that Eugen Sandow had perhaps the finest contour of this group of muscles […]

While work on the farm provides active exercise, and increased strength in the back, the shoulders, the forearms and part of the legs; the gym work tends to give less work to those parts and more to the upper arms, the chest, and abdominal and side muscles, and to […]

Add to that the fact that the vast majority of modern 'Strong Men' are 'self-made' and you will see that there is a chance for anyone to become strong, no matter what handicap nature has imposed in the way of lack of height, small bones or a slender frame. When you […]
  • Muscles and Energy : (Original Version, Restored) – Earle LiedermanMuscles and Energy : (Original Version, Restored) – Earle Liederman "We know that many people eat enough, so that they should be giants of strength, if quantity of food made energy. We know many who eat steaks daily who can scarcely lift their weight. We know that many exercise enough so that they should have bulging, powerful muscles, if exercise alone made these. We know that many are lying about almost all of the twenty-four hours of every day; […]

If you have refrained from exercise for some time and your body suffers for the want of it, fatigue well may be dreaded; whereas, if you ex- ercise daily and keep your body in good condition you will have no cause to dread fatigue. But by having too long periods of […]

It has been decided variously to be in our brain and nervous system, or our heart, or elsewhere in our chest, or in our spleen. There is no single habitat for 'life.' It is present in every part of the body, and in the minutest division of every part-except when, from some condition resulting from neglect, decay sets in. Even that is […]
