Basic Physical Training explores health and correcting faults of breathing and posture to counteract the lack of natural movement in civilized life. This book is composed of two sections encompassing nine chapters, which evolved from the method of physical and mental training known as Margaret Morris
Part I focuses on the closely inter-related practical objective of basic physical training, namely, the breathing, abdominal muscle training, feet strengthening, posture, stretching, relaxation, joint mobilization, and balance. Part II discusses the basic mechanism of breathing, followed by descriptions of exercises.
This book will be of value to gymnasts, teachers, and people who wish to practice the exercises either for health or as a foundation for more strenuous training.
