Body Culture magazines

As our name BODY CULTURE implies, this magazine is devoted to the development of the human physique, internally as well as externally. Although not a competitive lifter’s journal, we will publish notes and news regularly regarding weight-lifters and weight-lifting and suggest that would-be and established competition lifters would benefit tremendously through reading, digesting and practising methods of instruction advocated by BODY CULTURE  (from editorual of v.1 № 2).
