Notes: The following book is published for entertainment
only. Although I am quite in agreement with many, but not
all, of Mr. Camp's attitudes towards fitness and health, he wrote in
the earliest part of the 20th century, and much has been learned since
then. While I applaud his attitude towards physcial fitness,
exercise, and health, many of his "facts" have since been provem wrong,
or at least not fully understood. I may make the occasional
commen along the way, genernally in parentheses and prefaced by WN, for
hope you enjoy the book, but check up on the latest facts before
following through on the exercise and fitness tips contained within.
By the way, the original book had quite a few illustrationg,
and you may see reference here or there to them. However, I
have omitted them on this website.
A HARD MISTRESS
THE YEARS GO ON
PRICE OF SUCCESS
It has long been a startling fact regarding Americans that so soon as
their school-days were over they largely abandoned athletics; until, in
middle life, finding that they had been controverting the laws of
nature, they took up golf or some other form of physical exercise.
The result of such a custom has been to lower the physical tone of the
race. Golf is a fine form of exercise, but in an exceedingly mild way.
No one claims that it will build up atrophied muscles nor, played in the
ordinary way, that it will induce deep breathing; nor, except in warm
weather, that it will produce any large amount of skin action. Hence it
is easy to imagine the condition of the man who at the end of his
'teens gave up athletics, and then did nothing of a physically exacting
nature until he took up golf. Now if in addition to his pastime and
relaxation he will do something in the way of setting-up exercises to
open up his chest and make his carriage erect, thus enabling his heart
and lungs to have a better chance, he will more than double the
advantages coming from his golf. He will then walk more briskly and will
gain very much in physical condition.
