Mike Marvel’s Dynaflex Method, 1966

Well if you couldn’t get enough of Charles Atlas’ Dynamic Tension or Atlasman’s Dramatic Tension, we present to you Mike Marvel’s Dynaflex Method.

The opening paragraph states, “My secret new Dynaflex Method can build you a magnificent new he-man-muscled body in just ten minutes a day – with absolutely NO weights – No bar-bells – No exercise at all!“. I think they forgot to include the words, “And then you’ll wake up” at the end of that paragraph.

The ad is meant to be taken seriously (it was published in 1966) but it’s not an easy task when you’re told “my secret Dynaflex method will cram pep, vigor and red-blooded vitality into your puny, exhausted body.” Sounds like an ad for Dwight Goodman’s Globo Gym – check out the film Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story if you don’t understand the reference.

A testimonial from F.S. in Chicago says in only 3 weeks of Dynaflex, he has more dates than he can handle. It appears there’s some truth in the phrase more plates, more dates.

Mike Marvel’s Dynaflex Method ad appeared on the back cover of Marvel Collectors’ Item Classics, Issue #2, 1966.
