This book discusses the mechanism of bodily movement, and describes the principal types of muscular exercise, stating how they are performed, how they react on the body, and how they may be utilized in the prevention and cure of certain defects and deformities. It is a description of the mechanics of the most intricate and perfect machine ever devised—the human body. The book forms an excellent basis for work on physical training, especially for those interested in the orthopedic cure of physical defects.
