‘Rocky Marciano and Charley Goldman – About This Book’
We have written this book primarily for boys and young men who want to improve their bodies and who want their facts in the most condensed form possible.
For this reason we have reduced our ideas to step-by-step principles which any ambitious young man can easily follow.
Both of us have been in the sporting world for many years. We have studied many theories on physical culture and have applied them to the hundreds of young boxers and bodybuilders we have come in contact with. We have worked in earnest, comparing notes on physical make-up, exercises used and results obtained.
What we tall you here is what we ourselves have learned from the greatest teacher of all – Experience. We honestly believe that, by following the rules and exercises laid down in this book, any young man can perfect his physical development to the maximum his body will allow.
