About the author:
From Wikipedia: "... Bob Hoffman, named 'Father of World Weightlifting' by the International Weightlifting Federation, founded York Barbell in 1932. As a prolific writer of books and articles, Hoffman promoted the benefits of exercise and nutrition. ... From the decades of the 1930s through the 1970s, York Barbell sponsored over 40 national championships and numerous Olympic gold medalists, a few of whom are featured in one of the Murals of York, PA. Today, the corporate office of York Barbell Company houses the official Weightlifting Hall of Fame and Museum in York, Pennsylvania and continues to host a variety of powerlifting and bodybuilding competitions."

Advanced Methods of Weight Training

(Original Version, Restored)

Authored by Bob Hoffman

"If all you want is to keep fit in the easiest possible way you can do this with the simplified course contained in this group of courses in a few minutes a day, three or four times a week, lifting only moderate poundages. Most of the other types of barbell men enumerated, will obtain all they desire in a physical way from the Four Famous York Courses which have developed more champions of strength and development, more lifting champions, more physique champions, than all other courses combined. Those who desire athletic improvement will succeed best by following the exercises of the Four York Courses, with particular emphasis on the weight lifting courses. Although this course can be used by any man who is not a complete beginner at weight training, it is primarily designed for the man who desires the limit in muscle, in strength and de- velopment. For the man who wants big, strong muscles in the right places so that he will have perfect proportions, the man who may wish to enter physique contests and win great honors and then go on to teaching others by running a gymnasium of his own." - Bob Hoffman
