    Jack Dempsey; Fighting muscles

    So I stumbled upon this little gem (and promptly uploaded it to mega upload). 84 years ago this month (1915), this article was published; Jack Dempsey reveals his views on muscles, muscle building exercises, and the virtues of hard work. It's a little hard to follow which paragraph leads to what (or perhaps I'm just retarded), but it's still pretty good. He certainly endorses manual labor, and one pound weights for shadowboxing/grip squeezing amongst other things.

    Also, on Page 84, does the part above "How I got and keep my fighting muscles" seem like it belongs to that article as well? It would make sense as he's doing a wrestler's bridge on the first page, but it's not laid out as one would expect.

    No, it's from a different article: no quotation marks at the beginning of each paragraph, unlike the Dempsy article (which picks up below the title, 1/3 down the page).

    Also, it's hard to imagine JD writing* "Rudolph Valentino, one of the outstanding muscular men of motion pictures . . ."

    Further lulz:

    *Or (more likely) allowing such a phrase to be attributed to him.
