It also contains directions on Personal Hygiene and Exercise, and a series of exercises and directions for the correction of deficiencies in development and function- these exercises include chest weights- special developing appliances- class drills, containing many of the fundamental movements necessary for hygienic exercise: and other information which will be of assistance to students using the gymnasium.
