This handbook of physical fitness from the Edwardian age is both refreshingly practical and amusingly eccentric. Devoted to the sedentary workforce, dynamic good health is the aim--not giant muscles--and much care and attention is given to the crucial abilities of relaxation, flexibility and good breathing, as well as specific instructions for the strengthening of the arms, legs, hips and shoulders. Covering such topics as "How to Stand" and "How to Walk," the author also addresses "Sleeping at Will" through the process of "Self-Magnetizing," before explaining more advanced exercises such as "Dorsal Breathing" and '"The Liver Squeezer." If rugged health and fitness is your aim, then this book will unlock your natural vim and vigor.
