Generally, heavily built men were found to be stronger than slender men of the same weight. The tests were made to ascertain the pulling, pushing, handgripping, lifting and lung power of men be- tw'een the ages of twenty and thirty- four, between the weight ot 120 and 169 pounds, and betw’een the heights of 63 and 70 inches. The greatest pulling power was demonstrated by men In the heaviest weight class, between 160 and 169 pounds. Men in the two heaviest classes, 150 to 159 and 160 to 169 pounds, tied as the most pow'erful pushers. In each of these weight groups the taller men proved to be the best pushers, with a force of 121 pounds, the record figure. In the handgripping contest the talleit and heaviest men gave the most powerful hand grips, with a force of 108.48 pounds. But the shortest men in the heaviest group were the most powerful lifters, lifting on an average 619.2 pounds. The men having the greatest lung power were found among the short est In the 150-159 pound class. Their lung force was measured at 154 mil limeters. ^ ‘ So far as general strength went. It was found that the taller men were for their weight the less strength they had on the average, and the shorter they were for their weight the stronger they were.
