Staff Sgt. Alfred Moss was an early bodybuilder, circa 1900. Believe it or not, Moss’ tattoos often disqualified him from several contests despite his obvious muscularity. Sergeant Moss was considered the Strongest man in the British Army, once jerking a 56-pound blockweight 100 times in 2 minutes 52 seconds. Moss went on to write several training courses covering the parallel bar, vaulting horse, Indian clubs, rings, tumbling and other gymnastic subjects.
