Herman John Koehler’s “Manual of Calisthenic Exercises” is a fantastic guide to exercising and keeping fit using Calisthenics, a form of exercise based on the doing of various gross motor movements such as running, standing, grasping, pushing, etc. These movements are usually performed in a rhythmic fashion and require little to no equipment, making it perfect for those too busy to go to the gym or simple interested in exercising at home and on the move. Contents include: “Order of the Secretary of War”, “Preface”, “Advice to Instructors”, “Commands”, “Exercises”, “Starting Positions”, “Arm”, “Wrist and Fingers”, “Neck”, “Shoulder”, “Trunk”, “Leg”, “Foot and Toes”, “Straddle Position”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
