Klein's Bell

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.
