ABSTRACT

This book serves as a convenient guide to the woman teacher of physical education who wishes to use systematic exercise as a method for improving the physical condition of girls and women. The objectives of conditioning exercises and their place in the total program of physical education for women are discussed. The suggested exercises are carefully analyzed in terms of kinesiology, physiology and effects specific to each part of the body. The clear and precise directions for teaching each exercise will be of help to the beginning or inexperienced teacher. The chief value of the book, however, lies in the fact that it has been written for women with direct reference to their needs and abilities. The methods described depart from the rigid technics of the older systems of formal exercise, which were designed primarily for men and boys, and by an adaptation of many technics of the modern dance
