Read What This Famous Author
Says About William Pullum

“I have never been able to quite figure out why W. A. Pullum, the famous featherweight champion and physical culture teacher of England never got more notice than he did in our American publications. Some of our younger readers are probably ignorant of his outstanding achievements in the world of weights.”
Leo Gaudreau
author of “Anvils, Horseshoes and Cannons”

“This book is a classic that should be on every serious weight lifter hobbyists book shelf. The importance is the set of rules and right technique detailed.
Thank you for great product!!!”
