Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Alan Calvert was one of the most important and most under-rated figures in the history of physical culture. He was the founder and publisher of STRENGTH MAGAZINE and the founder of MILO BARBELL COMPANY in the early 1900's. MILO was the first mass produced graduated plate loaded modern barbell. STRENGTH magazine was an early leader in physical culture and many famous legends of the Iron Game such as Mark Berry, John C. Grimek, and many others, got their start there. Calvert's classic book SUPER STRENGTH is considered by many strength historians to be "The Bible" of muscle building and weight training. Alan Calvert is truly one of the most influential men in the history of the Iron Game and Physical Culture.
