Body Development by Will-Power
Originally published in 1910, this truly remarkable course has run through countless editions.
This course describes in detail how, by use of mental concentration, you can develop and gain individual control of every muscle in the body.
It’s easy, fascinating, and once learned never forgotten.
The author, by adding muscle control to weight training, developed both the finest physique and such strength that he was, pound for pound, the strongest man in the world!
His measurements were: chest 40 ¾” (normal), 45″ (expanded), biceps 15 ½”, forearm 13″ and thigh 23″, at a height of just 5’4 ½” and a weight of only 145 lbs.!
As you can see, even though he was small in statue, he set some of the most astonishing lifting records the world has ever seen. (He was third in the world to elevate over double bodyweight when he did 322 1/2 lbs. at a bodyweight of only 145 lbs!)
Here is what Maxick, himself, had to say about the importance of muscle control:
“I do not, and never have, claimed that by muscle-control alone, unaided by mechanical exercises, each muscle may be brought to its highest state of development; but I do claim that mechanical exercise, either with or without apparatus, will never produce the limit of strength and development of which the individual is capable unless combined with muscle-control.”
Here are some of the things you can expect to
