HOW TO KEEP YOUR BODY FIT


 THE SUPREME BODY BUILDING METHOD

HEALTH, HARMONY, POWER, SERVICE
That is what a supreme body gives. Do not always be taking care of your health, take care of your body and you will generate health. Thought animates the body with health. This is an age of electrification. We are fed, lighted, heated, and transported by electricity.
 In the lightning pace we are going, the body is neglected. Give three minutes morning and night to the exercises below and you will straighten, develop, heal, and energize your body. Enter upon these exercises as you would an arena of conquest where you expected to win the great prize of life.

THE BREATH IS LIFE
 Take a deep, full, abdominal breath with each body building exercise, inhale through the nose and expel forcefully through the mouth. NEVER HOLD YOUR BREATH.

  •   FIRST EXERCISE Stand erect, drop hands to the side, clinch your fists tightly, then with muscular tension raise fists and arms slowly high above the head, taking a deep, full, abdominal breath as you raise them, relax and expel the breath forcefully through the mouth. Repeat 5 times.

  • SECOND EXERCISE Place the left hand flat in the right, clasp them, resisting with the left, lift with the right, putting full strength into the effort, until the hands are lifted above the head, taking deep breath as in the first exercise. Relax, expel breath. Then repeat with the right hand resisting the left. Repeat exercise 5 times.

  •   THIRD EXERCISE Grasp the hands firmly above the head, letting them be at rest on top of the head. Then pull hard from right to left slowly, taking the deep, full abdominal breath with each movement, relaxing and expelling as above. This and the above exercise are wonderful in their effect in developing the lungs and rounding out the development of the shoulders and chest. Repeat 5 times.

  •   FOURTH EXERCISE Grasp hands in front, level with chest, pull from right to left hard, taking deep, full abdominal breath with each movement. Relax and expel breath same as above.

  •   FIFTH EXERCISE Grasp the hands behind the back, taking deep, full abdominal breath, lift the hands as far up on the back as possible. Relax, expel breath. Always draw in the breath as you move through the exercise, having a full breath when the movement is completed, then expel.
