Exercises And Their Objects

There is a great deal of nonsense done in the way of bodily exercises -so many people seem to think that their only object is to make huge muscle. But to make yourself strong and healthy it is necessary to begin with your inside and to get the blood into good order and the heart to work well. That is the secret of the whole thing, and exercises of the body do it for you. This is the way:

MAKE THE HEART STRONG to pump the blood properly to every part of the body, and so to build up flesh, bone, and muscle.

Exercise: "Wrist Pushing" and "The Struggle". See below.

MAKE THE LUNGS STRONG to provide the blood with fresh air.

Exercise: "Deep Breathing". See below.

MAKE THE SKIN PERSPIRE to get rid of the dirt from the blood.

Exercise: Bath, or dry rub with a damp towel every day.

MAKE THE STOMACH WORK to feed the blood.

Exercise: "Cone", or "Body Bending", and "Twisting". See below.

MAKE THE BOWELS ACTIVE to remove the remains of food and dirt from the body.

Exercise: "Body Bending" and "Kneading the Abdomen". Drink plenty of good water. Regular daily "rear".

WORK MUSCLES IN EACH PART OF THE BODY to make the blood circulate to that part, and so increase your strength.

Exercise: Running and Walking, and special exercises of special muscles, such as "Wrist Pushing" (see below), etc.

The secret of keeping well and healthy is to keep your blood clean and active. These different exercises will do that if you will use them every day.

The blood thrives on simple good food, plenty of exercise, plenty of fresh air, cleanliness of the body both inside and out, and proper rest of body and mind at intervals.
