Is Walking the Easiest Exercise? – Strength Magazine – November, 1928

Popular opinion has it that walking is the easiest of exercises. Physicians and physical culturists commonly advise the very weak patients who are unequal to much exertion to take a daily walk. It is true that walking as ordinarily performed is easy, as far as muscular exertion goes-though I have sometimes thought it tiresome to the nerves to drag along as some people do. But there are different styles of pedestrianism, and anyone who cares seriously to try can make a real exercise of walking, a producer of health and strength.
