Earle Liderman King of the Musclemen

He used his business acumen to publish a series of exercises and by the 1920’s was the King of the muscleman mail order business. Liederman advocated daily exercise as a way to not only develop strong muscles but to attain perfect health. He advised, “A good strong constitution is within the reach of almost every one. If you want it, you can attain it; it is simply up to yourself.”
