  • Tensing Exercises - Wikisource, the free online library
    action active to passive passive to active etc and by exercising the shoulder back and chest muscles as hereinafter indicated FOREARMS AND FINGERS See Figs 10 and 11 With the arms full length hanging at side open and shut the fingers alternately This should he done very slowly and powerfully as if resisting an opposing force Extend the fingers and thumbs in opening the hand as if some one exerted a strong pressure against each finger and thumb and almost prevented your opening the hand extending the digitals to the utmost Relax retaining position of fingers Starting from this point tense fingers and thumbs and gradually close the hands against the same resisting force clenching the fist as tightly as possible before relaxing and repeating Ten or more times FOREARMS AND FINGERS See Figs 12 and 13 Extend the arms full length at side palms down Grasp tightly an imaginary or light dumbbell or rubber grips Without lowering the arms draw the hands as far underneath as possible This should be done slowly as if resisting an opposing force Relax Again tensing the muscles raise the hands slowly to position and above as far as possible without raising the arms resisting the same imaginary opposing force Ten or more times FIG 14 NECK See Fig 14 Imagine that some one is trying to choke you and you have no other recourse than to tense your neck muscles Think strongly as it were at the neck and through the action of your thought you can swell the neck muscles as if actually overcoming a strong resistance Ten or more times ABDOMEN BACK SHOULDERS ARMS See Figs 15 and 16 With the body resting only on the palms of the hands and on the toes raise and lower the body slowly without getting your back up Push the body up full length of the arms and then lower it until the face nearly touches the floor Do this very slowly but do not allow the body to sag in going down nor to curve the other way in going up From the head to the feet it should remain as rigid as a log Ten or more times FIG 17 SIDES SHOULDERS ARMS BACK See Fig 17 Tense your arms to the utmost after pushing them out a short distance from the sides of the body and then bring them toward but not quite to the body checking them in opposition to a strong imaginary force This exercise so difficult to make plain through the medium of the pen is not only one of the most fascinating but one that exercises a set of muscles that is rarely ofherwise developed Twenty five times ABDOMEN SHOULDERS CHEST BACK See Figs 18 and 19 Raise the hands high above the head as if to touch the ceiling bend slightly backward to get an impulse for the swinging forward Keep the arms extended and as you sway forward touch the hands to the floor or try to without bending the knees Then bring the body up to position and as far back as you can without undue straining swinging the arms up and back of the head Caution Always bend the knees when going backward Fifty times back and forth counting one ABDOMEN SHOULDERS CHEST HIPS See Figs 20 and 21 As you raise the right arm fully extended and swing it up over your head bend your body as far to the left as possible straight to the left keeping both feet solidly upon the floor Then swing the body as far as possible to the right raising the left arm and lowering the right keeping both feet solidly upon the floor Tense the arms Twenty five times right and left counting one ABDOMEN AND HIPS Liver Squeezer See Figs 22 and 23 Stand perfectly erect Twist the body slowly to the right and slowly to the left Do not move the feet This may be taken with the arms akimbo until accustomed to the movement then the arms may be tensed and swung right and left as though striking at some one on each side as right or left is used Fifteen times right and left counting one Note The three exercises just preceding are known throughout the land as my pet exercises There are no series of movements better adapted for obtaining and retaining the suppleness of the waist muscles and for reducing or preventing excessive flesh on the hips and abdomen To be effectual however they must be taken the full quota of times and with daily regularity ABDOMEN See Figs 24 and 25 Lie flat upon the back the arms stretched above the head and in line with the body Draw up both knees clasp them with the hands press them firmly against the abdomen exhaling as you press Then inhale deeply as you extend the arms and legs in opposite directions back to position Twenty five times UPPER ARMS See Figs 26 and 27 Extend the arms horizontally Tense the arms close your hands half way thumb and fingers opposing each other Pull both hands straight for the shoulders pull slowly as if resisting an opposing force Make the muscular contraction very positive at the end of every movement Relax Push the hands back to position slowly as if resisting an opposing force Extend arms to the utmost Relax Do not allow the elbows to lower in either movement Seven times UPPER ARMS See Figs 28 and 29 Extend the arms horizontally Hands half closed palms down Tense the arms Think of the arms as a strong steel rod Rotate the arms as far to the right and as far to the left as possible very slowly and as if resisting an opposing force In order to retain the arms in position imagine each hand turning as it were in a hole in the wall Seven times UPPER ARMS See Figs 30 and 31 Bow the legs Arms at side close to the body Hands half closed palms forward Tense the arms Lift both hands slowly as if lifting a very heavy weight in each hand Close the arms with a positive muscular contraction Relax Tense hands and arms again and lower them slowly as if resisting an opposing force Seven times CALF AND FOREARM See Fig 32 Standing in the correct position the weight of the hody over the center of the feet raise the heels as far as possible from the floor and lower them again to position without swaying the body forward and backward Rise slowly and settle very lightly on the heels As you rise tense your entire body and imagine a very powerful person holding his hands on your shoulders This will necessitate very slow movement with great resistance As you descend the same force is used to overcome an imaginary resistance as if powerful hands were placed under your arms Seven times Fifty times when taking the movements more rapidly without the resistance These for the sake of suppleness should follow the resisting exercise At the same time close and open the hands as in exercises Nos 10 and 11 THIGHS See Fig 33 The squatting exercise Settle the body as nearly as possible on the heels as they rise from the floor the knees well apart Then rise to position Tense your entire body as you slowly descend against an imaginary resisting force Do the same as you rise The slower and the greater force exerted the more rapid and complete the development Seven times Twenty five times rapidly without resistance There is no better exercise to give elasticity to one s step THIGHS AND KNEES See Fig 34 Resting the left hand lightly on back of chair for balance and weight of body on left foot KICK vigorously forward and out with right leg and recover quickly The same with the left leg the right hand on back of chair and the right leg bearing the weight of the body Take this mildly at first so as to avoid any undue strain of tendon or ligament Fifty times with each foot HIPS THIGHS KNEES See Fig 35 Resting the weight on the left foot the left hand on the hip or chair extend the right arm to its fullest extent palm of hand toward the floor the arm on a level with the shoulder or higher Kick high enough with the right foot to touch the toes to the palm of the hand without lowering the hand Then resting the weight on the right foot repeat the movement with the left foot Ten times each foot ABDOMEN See Fig 36 Lie flat upon the back Tense the arms alongside the body but not resting them on the floor Tense the legs Lift them and lower them slowly without bending the knees Keep the legs together Do not allow the head to rise from the floor Seven times up and down without the legs or heels resting upon the floor until the seventh time Caution Do not hold the breath Inhale as the legs ascend exhale as they descend or as is my rule in general let the breathing take care of itself providing you do not restrict it CHEST AND SHOULDERS See Figs 37 and 38 Bow the legs Extend arms to the side Tense arms and halfclosed hands Bring them to the front on a line with the shoulders then back to position without lowering the arms This should be done rapidly and very vigorously Fifteen times without stopping Caution Do not hold the breath CHEST AND SHOULDERS See Figs 39 and 40 Bow the legs Bring the half closed hands to the front near the body palms up the fingers toward each other the arms not fully extended but bent at elbow forming a sort of half circle Tense the arms and hands very strongly and swing them out and up at the sides almost above the head completing the circle without opening the arms Rapidly and vigorously Fifteen times without stopping Caution Do not hold the breath CHEST AND SHOULDERS See Figs 41 and 42 Bow the legs Bring the half closed hands toward the body thumbs almost touching each other elbows extending somewhat sidewise Tense the arms and hands and swing them up in front and above the head without changing the relative position of the hands and arms Up and back to position rapidly and vigorously Fifteen times without stopping Caution Do not hold the breath CHEST AND SHOULDERS See Fig 43 Bow the legs Tense the arms and half closed hands extending one arm up and forward the other down and back Swing the arms alternately down and back up and front keeping perfect time Keep the arms perfectly straight and at the side not allowing the body to twist Keep the tension of the arms throughout Twenty five times without stopping Caution Do not hold the breath NECK AND CHEST See Figs 44 45 46 47 48 and 49 Have the head well poised Bend it as far forward as possible chin to chest and then as far backward Do not move the body Have the head well poised Endeavor to lay the ear upon the shoulder first right then left Do not move the body from side to side nor allow the shoulders to lift Keep the eyes toward the ceiling about 45 degrees in order to keep the correct position of the head Have the head well poised Turn it to the right and left alternately without moving the body If you desire muscular development of the neck tense the muscles as if someone was placing the hand against the head to prevent the various movements If you desire flexibility take the movements without tensing or resisting Fifteen times forward and back Ten times side to side Five times turning or twisting right and left ABDOMEN See Figs 30 and 31 Lie flat upon the back Extend the arms full length above the head resting them upon the floor Tense the arms and legs Raise them both simultaneously arms and legs toward each other above the body The legs kept together and unbent Do not allow the head to rise from the floor Seven times up and down without the legs or heels resting upon the floor until the seventh time Caution Do not hold the breath Inhale as the legs and arms ascend and exhale as they descend or as is my usual custom let the breathing take care of itself providing it is not restricted ABDOMEN See Figs 52 and 53 Lie flat upon the back Fold the arms easily across the chest Rise to a sitting posture without allowing the heels to lift from the floor or the knees to rise Lower the body as slowly as you rise Keep the legs flat upon the floor If your abdominal muscles are not sufficiently strong at first to do this without a jerk or without lifting the legs place the feet under the dresser couch or some other object until the muscular contraction is sufficient of itself to raise and lower the body slowly As this movement has an interval of rest at the end of the sitting and lying posture I would suggest that you inhale before each movement and exhale at the close i e inhale before rising exhale after rising inhale before returning exhale after returning Seven times up and down ARMS AND SHOULDERS See Figs 54 55 and 56 1 Lock the thumbs together Extend the arms downward close to the body Pull vigorously and steadily for a moment or two Then lock the forefingers and do likewise then the middle fingers then the third or ring fingers then the little fingers then grip the ends of all the fingers of one hand with the ends of all the fingers of the other hand 2 Repeat the foregoing with the hands higher up the forearms at right angles with the upper arms 3 Repeat the foregoing with the hands higher up about opposite the neck ARMS AND SHOULDERS See Figs 57 and 58 4 Repeat the exercise on previous page with the hands back of the head 5 Repeat the foregoing by starting at the last position and ending at the first by a steady attempt to pull apart from start to finish During the entire passage the arms should be fully extended after raising them above the head and moving forward Avoid bending backward rather incline the body forward ANOTHER LIVER SQUEEZER See Figs 59 and 60 Stand erect arms outstretched feet 20 inches apart abdomen drawn back Bend to the left flexing the left knee but keeping the right leg straight Touch the floor with the left hand by the side of the foot Recover make a momentary pause and reverse the movement by flexing the right knee keeping the left leg straight and touching the floor with the right hand by the side of the foot Keep the abdomen well drawn in especially when returning to position Ten times side to side A REST FOR BODY AND BRAIN See Figs 61 and 62 Place the hands back of the head Interlace the fingers Lean slightly backward and move the body sidewise right and left stretching the body to the utmost Relax the mind as you stretch the body This need not be taken at any specified time nor any number of times but when brain or body needs a recreative exercise CALF SHIN ANKLE FOREARM See Figs 63 and 64 Sit Extend the legs straight in front high enough for the feet to escape the floor Extend the arms down by your side Tense the arms and legs Close and open the hands as in exercises Nos 10 and 11 As you close the hands with a firm grip draw the ball of the foot firmly toward your body heels pressed forward As you open the hands and extend the fingers press the ball of the foot firmly forward the heels toward the body Do not raise or lower the legs Twenty five times ABDOMEN SIDES BACK SHOULDERS See Figs 65 and 66 Sit on the fioor body erect Hold a rod or stick in the hands knuckles up Work the body right and left as when paddling a canoe with a single oar Carry each movement to the extreme turning point the face following the movements of the hands Endeavor to look directly to the rear forcing the leading hand the lower one as far as possible Do not allow the legs to move This is an excellent exercise for the liver and kidneys Twenty five times ABDOMEN AND THIGHS See Fig 67 Lie on the right side supporting the head with the hand the other hand on the hip Raise the left leg as far as possible Keep the leg perfectly straight as you tense it and carry it as far forward and as far backward as possible Point the foot downward Endeavor to move the leg horizontally Turn over and repeat the exercise with the right leg Twenty five times each leg A CHAPTER FROM A BUSY LIFE Written for Health Culture 151 West Twenty third Street New York My Dear Mr Turner About once a year I get around to make my bow to the readers of Health Culture to let them know that I am neither dead nor sleepeth but instead as the years go by my enthusiasm for perfect health and manly strength keeps ever apace with the times As figures do not lie except in election returns I trust that the following comparative table will prove to your many readers that the fool doctor of Chicago was entirely off his base when he declared that a man could not and should not attempt to develop physically after reaching thirty five years of age This statement is
