The Rader Master Bodybuilding and Weight Gaining System by Peary Rader
by Peary Rader
" Peary Rader, the founder of Iron Man magazine, and the magazine's editor for 50 years, used to call the over-40 trainee 'the forgotten man.' He used the term because virtually all of the articles published over the past 100 years in the 'muscle magazines' have been aimed at teenagers and young men."

As the story goes, Peary Rader found an old mimeograph machine in the garbage, fixed it up, and started putting out a magazine on physical training. There were only 50 copies of "#1" ever produced, mostly just for Rader's friends.

Peary Rader, Publisher and Founder of Ironman Magazine
Peary Rader
Peary Rader Peary Rader was the editor and long-time publisher of Iron Man Magazine from 1936 through 1986. It all began when Peary printed the first issue of Ironman (there were only 50 copies) on an old mimeograph machine and distributed it to his friends.
His no-nonsense style and focus on the basics went over well... soon the demand for another issue grew too big to ignore, then another and another. At it's peak, Iron Man Magazine had 40,000 subscribers.

For at least twenty years the editor of this magazine, Mr. Peary Rader, has been pointing out that no other single exercise, or combination of other exercises, could produce anything even approaching the results possible from the proper application of this one exercise. He, among others, also noted that such results were not limited to the legs; that overall strength gains in both size and strength would result from full squats - in the chest, in the back, and even in the arms.

Peary Rader began lifting weights at 12 years old in order to build up his 128 pound frame. Heavy, high-rep squats and plenty of milk helped him gain nearly a hundred pounds of muscle over the next few years and, as a result, he went on to become a local weightlifting champion.
Needless to say, strength training became a big part of his life once he saw how effective it could be. He wanted to spread the word...
In the mid 1930's Rader found a broken mimeograph machine at the school where he worked as a maintenance man, took it home, repaired it and fashioned his own magazine discussing the wonders of proper weight lifting.

If you read Iron Man Magazine in the 70's you remember Peary Rader demonstrating the Magic Circle. I actually grew up with one in our basement gym -- that's right a fully functioning Magic Circle, one of the last ones left. I don't like using it for squats -- it changes the center of gravity in the bottom position too much for my taste. Though not necessarily the same concept, (but very much along the same lines), a Gerard Trap Bar will give you a much better leg workout.

Peary Rader, the founder of Iron Man magazine, and the magazine's editor for 50 years, used to call the over-40 trainee "the forgotten man." He used the term because virtually all of the articles published over the past 100 years in the "muscle magazines" have been aimed at teenagers and young men. If you think about it, Peary was right.

As I recently remarked to Mr. Peary Rader, the publisher of Iron Man Magazine, " . . . I think it is about time that somebody stood up to be counted.
In my obviously biased opinion, the only one worth reading is Iron Man - and don't believe everything you read there; Peary Rader (the publisher of Iron Man) is an honest man, to my personal knowledge - but like all of us, he makes mistakes. In my opinion, most of his mistakes have come about as an unavoidable result of leaning over backwards in his attempts to be fair; frequently in relationships with people who obviously feel that anything to their own advantage is "fair".
