Different forms of exercise
The people who need exercise
People, who have to work hard all day as manual labor, do not need any other bodily exercise. The ploughman, the blacksmith, the coolie, and the mason, find all the exercise they need in their daily work. What they want when the day is over and they go home is rest, not more exercise. But nowadays a great many people work more with their heads than with their hands. Clerks sit on stools all day, adding up figures or computer operating; business men sit in their offices, and give orders, and talk to customers; school-boys and students are indoors in their class-rooms, learning their lessons. Such people get no exercise in their work; and so if they want to keep well and strong, they must take exercise when their work is over.
Exercise can be taken in many ways. Generally, it takes the form of some game –like football, hockey, cricket, tennis, bad mitten and many more. These are good games for those who cannot spare much time for exercise, because one can get a lot of exercise running about a football field, in a very short time.
Besides these, there are exercises specially meant to strength the muscles, broaden the chest and improve the general health- such as gymnastics and physical drill.
