His weight decreased from 185 pounds to 180, while his lung capacity has increased from 245 to 290. This indicates quite a remarkable improvement, and one that would be very satisfactory for an athlete in training.

His muscles are naturally extremely hard, both in his arms and legs. Dr. Sargent characterized them as being like iron.
