About types of exercise

Physical exercises include exercises that are performed during the occupation of some work, and purely physical exercises. Here we have in mind precisely these latter ones, for they are physical exercises, and they are engaged in them only for the benefit received from them.

Physical exercises are different, namely: small or large, very strong and weak, fast or slow, or nimble, consisting of sharp and fast [movements], and there are sluggish exercises. In addition, there are moderate [types of exercises] between each two extremes.

As for the types of physical exercises, these include: Tug of war, fisticuffs, archery, brisk walking, javelin throw, jumping [up] to any object to hang on it, bouncing on one leg, fencing with a sword and spear , horseback riding, swinging with both hands, and the person rises on toes and stretches both hands back and forth, making quick movements. This is one of the quick exercises.

Smooth and light exercises include rocking on a swing and in a cradle while standing, sitting and lying down; boating and sailing. Stronger [exercises] include horseback riding, camel riding, and [riding] in palanquins and carts.

Strengths include exercises in the area, consisting in the rapid movement of a person across the area to the edge [of it] and then returning back without changing position, while each time it reduces the distance until it stops in the middle.

[Strong exercises] include fighting with one’s own shadow, palms, jumping, spear points, playing a chougan with a big and small ball, playing ball, wrestling, raising stones, chasing and riding a horse.

Fighting also has various forms. One of the types is this: each of the two men grabs the other’s belt with his hands and pulls him to him, while each of them seeks to free himself from his opponent, and he does not let him go. Another view: one of the two [men] hugs the other with both hands, passing his right hand under the opponent’s right hand, and his left under the left. Then he presses it [to himself] and flips it, while it bends, then straightens. The [fight] also includes breast reflection or grabbing the other’s neck and pulling it down, or [the following techniques]: grabbing each other with the feet, tripping, spreading the legs of the other with their feet, and similar techniques used by wrestlers.

Quick exercises include the following: quick change of seats by two partners; continuous jumps back, then forward, and [the order may be] correct and erratic. This also includes an exercise with two large needles, which consists in the following: a person stands in a certain place and sticks two large needles on the ground on both sides at a distance of one fathom from each other. Then he turns to the needle on the right side and transfers it to the left side, and transfers the needle on the left side to the right, and tries to do it all as quickly as possible.

Sharp and quick exercises are done intermittently or together with lighter exercises. It is necessary that the exercises have a variety, not to linger on one.

There are special exercises for each member. As for the exercises of the arms and legs, they are known. And exercises of the chest and respiratory organs [are done as follows: the person] alternately gives either a very low voice, then a high and medium voice, while such organs as the mouth, tongue, tongue, and neck are also trained; in addition, the complexion [of the face] improves and the breast clears.
Exercise also includes blasting and breath holding, in which the whole body is trained and all channels expand.

Giving a strong voice for a very long time is very dangerous, because a large force of [voice] requires inhaling a large amount of air, which is dangerous, and a duration of [voice] requires exhaling a large amount of air, which is also very dangerous. First you need to start with a quiet reading aloud, then gradually you need to raise your voice, moreover, the duration of a loud and sharp voice should be moderate; There is a clear and great benefit to this. Increasing the duration of use of this [voice] is dangerous for people with moderate health.

Exercise should be appropriate for each person. This kind of light exercise, such as swinging on a swing, is suitable for people who are weakened by fever, and for those who find it difficult to move and sit; [they are also useful] for recovering and for those who have lost strength from consuming hellebore and the like, as well as for those suffering from a disease of the abdominal barrier. If you carefully [swing the person], then he will fall asleep and the winds dissolve in him. It is also useful from the effects of head diseases such as distracted attention and forgetfulness; it stimulates appetite and gives vigor to nature.

Rocking on the bed is more suitable for people suffering from a three-day fever, mixed fever and mucous membrane [fever]; Swing is also suitable for those suffering from dropsy, gout and kidney disease.

So, as a result of the swing, bad juices are prepared for removal. At the same time they pump strongly when [juices] are strong, and weakly when [juices] are weak. Riding in carts also has such an effect, but more powerful. Riding in a wagon, sitting with your back forward, is of great benefit with poor vision and blurred vision.

Boating in boats and vessels close to the shore is beneficial for leprosy, dropsy, sakta, cooling of the stomach and bloating. If [the patient] from swaying feels sick, and then he calms down, then this is good for the stomach.

Sailing on ships on the high seas has a stronger effect on the eradication of these diseases due to the fact that the soul [of the patient] experiences either joy or sorrow.

As for the digestive organs, their exercise is subordinate to the physical exercises of the whole body. Vision exercise is done by peering closely at small objects, and from time to time casting a cursory glance at the hills. Hearing should be practiced by listening to unsharp sounds, and less often - strong sounds.

There are special exercises for each organ, which we will mention [below], in connection with the preservation of the health of each organ separately in the Book on particular [diseases].

It is advisable that the practitioner protect his weak organs from strenuous movement.

[Exercises] should depend on [the state of the organs], for example, a person suffering from an expansion of veins in his legs should engage in such types of exercises in which there are not many, but few movements of the legs; he must transfer all movements to the upper part of the body, such as the neck, head and arms, so that the effect of the exercise on the legs comes from the upper part [of the body].

Exercise should be light for a weak body, and strong for a strong.

Know that each organ has its own special exercises, for example, the eye is practiced by gazing at small [objects], the throat - by gradually strengthening the voice; there are exercises also for teeth and ears, which [we will say] about in their place.

About types of exercise

  1. The fight against smoking, alcoholism in school age. Physiological and hygienic foundations of physical education: the effect of physical exercises on the functional systems of the body
    FUs do not affect in isolation on any organ or system, but on the whole organism. However, the improvement of the functions of its various systems does not occur to the same extent. Particularly distinct are changes in the muscular system. They are expressed in an increase in muscle volume, a change in the physicochemical properties of tissues, enhanced metabolic processes, and improved functional
  2. Physical exercise
    Health and physical education are inseparable from each other, because they serve the same goal - to promote health. Physical exercises contribute to the physical and mental development of a person, have a general educational, moral, aesthetic and defense value. Under the physical exercises understand the various forms of movement, used primarily for the purpose of physical
  3. On the time of the beginning and termination of exercise
    At the beginning of physical exercises, the body should be clean, that is, in the internal organs and vessels should not contain bad, immature chyme, because physical exercises spread them throughout the body. In addition, yesterday's food should already be absorbed by the stomach, liver and blood vessels, and the time of the next meal should already be right. This is determined by the maturity of urine in composition and
  4. Short word about exercise
    Since the most important thing in the health preservation mode is physical activity, and then the sleep mode, it is necessary to begin the presentation with physical exercises. We say that physical exercise is an arbitrary movement leading to continuous deep breathing. A person who is moderate and timely engaged in [physical exercises] does not need any treatment,
  5. Hygienic organization of physical exercises to promote children's health and development
    Systematic physical exercises contribute to the development of all organs and systems, and especially the motor apparatus of children, increase muscle excitability, pace, strength and coordination of movements, muscle tone, and overall endurance of the child. Intense muscle activity entails an increase in cardiac activity, in other words, training of the heart - the organ on whose work the provision depends
  6. Prevention of occupational diseases by means of physical and respiratory exercises
    Occupational diseases include diseases caused by exposure to adverse environmental factors. Occupational pathology is closely associated with other clinical disciplines, as well as with occupational health. Under certain conditions, certain types of work can cause occupational diseases, which is usually facilitated by insufficient technical equipment of production and
  8. The structure of motor activity. The possibility of negative effects of irrational forms of physical exercise on the body. Hardening, its types and principles.
    Hardening refers to the increase in stability - adaptation of the human body to the action of various adverse climatic factors (cold, heat, solar radiation) due to the use of a complex of systematic and targeted measures. Hardening is organized for a professional (production) purpose (preparation for work in certain climatic conditions in the north,
  9. The structure and content of occupations by improving physical exercises (OFU). Hygienic principles of organization of OFU
    This is continuity and continuity, complexity, adequacy. Continuity and continuity. This requirement must be respected throughout a person’s life, especially in childhood and adolescence. During this period, rapid physical development and formation of the body occurs, when it is especially sensitive to a lack of motor activity, and to a damaging effect
  10. Emergency conditions for various types of damage
    Emergency conditions are the conditions of the human body in which there is a real threat to the health and even life of a person if medical care is not provided to him. Such conditions can occur due to various injuries (external influences), or diseases or functional disorders (internal causes). An emergency is sudden: it can

    Physical state - the degree of a person’s readiness to perform muscular and labor loads of a different nature in a given specific time period. Physical development is a complex of physical, morphological and functional properties of an organism, which determine mass density, body shape, structural and mechanical qualities and are expressed by the reserve of its physical forces. Factors Affecting
  12. Physical development. Methods for determining and assessing the physical development of children
    Physical development is understood as a combination of morphological and functional signs of the body: height, weight, chest circumference, lung capacity, muscle strength of the hands, etc. Physical development is directly related to the state of the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, musculoskeletal, and other systems . In turn, stability depends on the level of physical development.
  13. How to measure physical development and use physical development maps
    Physical development is an increase in body weight and dimensions, which includes components of body weight (weight component) and length or growth (linear component). In assessing physical development, accurate measurement of both components is critical. To ensure accurate and reliable measurements, unification of methods and calibration of equipment is extremely important. By
  14. The concept of environmental pollution, its sources, types
    All processes in the biosphere are interconnected. It is well known that nature is the necessary environment for the existence of mankind and at the same time is the source of all the material goods it consumes. From the first moments of life to the last minute, the human body interacts with the external environment. The external (environment) environment as an integral system includes a large number of different factors affecting
