Principles of Exercise for Musculoskeletal Reconditioning and Fitness

  • Hans Kraus


The major part of our population lives under considerable stress and strain without an opportunity for physical outlet, let alone sufficient physical exercise. As a result, many people are generally underexercised and tense, especially the group that seeks a remedy in physical exercise. Current interest in such physical fitness has resulted in ever-increasing numbers of exercise groups and classes as well as numerous books about fitness and fitness exercises. Unfortunately, in most of these presentations, some basic principles of exercise are often neglected to the detriment of the exercise participant.
