A look at the September, 1932 issue of “Klein’s Bell” featuring John Garan on the cover. Garan was called by Klein a “Muscular Marvel” and it would be hard to disagree with what is shown here. Garan’s results would be quite impressive even today. Of particular note is Garan’s thigh development– he was listed as having 23-inch thighs at a bodyweight of 155 pounds. Keep in mind, squat racks were an innovation still a decade or two yet to come.
This issue of Klein’s Bell is posted in its entirety in The Iron League.
