What Is Vital Power?
But vital power is more than the capacity to pursue your work with comfort! It is more than the power of endurance!
Vital Power Depends On Functional Vigor
To those who are not familiar with the subject, it will come as a surprise to be told that muscular exercise does not comprise all that there is to physical culture.
Blood And Vitality
Just as life is impossible without vitalized blood, so is health impossible without blood that possesses a–fair degree of health.
Organs Of Digestion, Circulation, And Respiration
The change that the food undergoes begins right in the mouth, in which are a number of glands that supply saliva whenever food is chewed.
Building Vital Power With Long Walks
In my various writings I have frequently referred, to walking as a valuable means of exercise and an aid to the acquirement of vital vigor.
Vast Importance Of Water
All the fluids of the body have their part in its important functional processes, and in order that they may properly do so it is absolutely essential that they assume a proper consistency.
Increasing Digestive Power
The question of diet is of primary importance to every student desirous of acquiring a strong and beautiful body.
How A Powerful Stomach May Be Acquired
No advantage to your vital power is to be gained-by any method of exercise that does not provide abundant work for strengthening the muscles of the stomach and the small intestine.
The Heart Made Powerful
This is one of the most harrowing of all complaints. The average victim of heart disease goes through life with a sentence hanging over his head.

Strong and capacious lungs are needed in order that we may acquire the regular and almost unconscious habit of taking in great quantities of air at the moment of inspiration.
Pure Air Of The Utmost Importance
Air is essential to all life. It is also necessary to the manifestation of force of all kinds. Nearly all machinery for example, is actuated by steam.

You go into the average homes of today and I venture to say that there is not five percent, and in some cities not one percent, of such that are supplied with a sufficient quantity of pure air.
Erroneous Methods Of Breathing
Of course, the greatest error in breathing consists in taking into the lungs and thus sending throughout the body, air that is not nearly as pure as Nature can make it.
Deep Breathing Excercises
Think, for a moment, of the diseases that are caused by air starvation-by absolute starving for the want of pure air.
The Use Of Lung Testers
There is a joy, an exhilaration in breathing unlike any other of the joys of life. To learn how to breathe, is to get the best that there is in life.
Breathing And Muscular Excercises Combined
Do not for a moment suppose that deep breathing is to be practiced only as a brief spell of exercise each day.
Sun And Air Baths Vitalize Body
An air bath is a tonic beyond the conception of those who have not indulged in one. By an air bath I don't mean an accidental one of a few moments' duration.
The Depurating And Blood Purifying Blood Organs
It is a curious but necessary provision of Nature, that the blood, besides carrying the digested nourishment and the life-giving oxygen to all portions of the body.
On few subjects do more fallacious ideas exist than on that of clothing. The tendency during the past fifty years was toward the wearing of wool garments next to the skin.
