Excerpt from Physical Culture: First Book of Exercises in Drill, Calisthenics, and Gymnastics

The effect that gymnastic and calisthenic exercises have upon any but the muscular system is too often, unfortunately, not considered the important effect they have of increasing the action of the respiratory; circulatory and nutritive systems, is seldom thought of. We see this exemplified by those who engage exclusively in such exercises, for instance, as in the unintellectual exercise of lifting heavy dumb-bells.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Physical Culture: First Book of Exercises in Drill, Calisthenics, and Gymnastics It may, perhaps, be unnecessary to remark that Hygiene and Physical Culture are concurrent subjects, and that one is incomplete without the other. In fact the pupils taking an active interest in physical culture will become alive to the importance of developing all the faculties of the body and mind to the highest standard. When they find that the sub jcet of physical culture covers a vast field, including much more than is generally understood by the term that it means more than making the muscles hard and strong; more than depth of lung more than capacity for endurance that it is the adapt ing of the human body for all its possibilities, they will natur ally and of their own accord turn their attention to Hygiene, which will then become to them a living fact of vital impor tance.
