OF AUj th muscles of th body,
thoao of the back Are, perhaps,
- the moat Important. In almost
all of our movements, from the sim
plest to the most complicated, these
- muscles are used. Walking, standing,
bending, going upstairs, lifting a
chair, boarding a car and In a hun
dred other everyday acta the musclea
of the back are brought Into action.
" How shall we best develop these mus-.
cles and keep them in good condition
is the question. ' ' , . . .
ZZ I believe that the easiest and best
:way to accomplish this is by a few
minutes' regular dally exercise, and
the following movements are, to my
mind, excellent for the purpose: Raise
and lower the weight slowly ' and
. rhythmically on the toes. This will
-'..not only develop the muscles of -the
' back, but those at the calf o the leg
as well. It makes the ankles flexible
and brings the body Into poise.
It is well when practicing thls exer-
clse to keep the eyes fixed on some
" point straight ahead. Now, seat your
self easily In a low chair, placing the
feet upon a hassock orfootstool. Kx-
hale the breath, and, as ypu Opto, lean
forward, stretching the hands toward
the toes. Hold the position for twenty
"" to thirty seconds. -7 - -
This exercise Is Peculiarly valuable
- for the correction of a hollow back, and
will often relieve7 a' severe backache.
, jet any one, for Instance, after several -.
hours ofhard work, writing, sewing.
etc., try the above exercise, and shsJ
will soon discover that It Is a perfect
"cure for discomfort in ths region of tnr
. back. . :.' ' .
