Exercise Or Exhaustion – Strength Magazine – May, 1920

Every individual, after he has engaged in some strenuous form of athletics, such as running, wrestling, boxing, football, etc., or has done a hard day’s work, will feel exerted-exhausted-or as we say, “all in.” As this condition is unnatural, such exertion cannot really be considered as exercise. Not that such forms of exercise are in themselves harmful-on the other hand they are some of the most beneficial forms of exercise known. But in competitive games of this kind, there is always a tendency to over exertion. After such indulgence, you have not only used up every bit of your strength, but also your reserve power and energy, which should only be employed in an emergency.
