PHYSICAL FITNESS FOR BUSINESS HEN HOT WEATHER EXERCISE. By Frank A. Gotch, World's Wrestling Champion The business man who has started in with a system of exercise in cool weather progresses nicely until the dog days ar rive. and then he hesitates. Hot weather and exercise do not seem very compatible, and in truth they are not- To go into a gymnasium when the mercury is pushing through the top of the thermometer is not calculated to add to one's comfort. It carries with It cer tain dangers. Hot weather exercise should be more along the lines of recreation. The golf links, the tennis courts, the 'streams and lakes with their boating and Ashing, and horseback rides out Into the country, are more in keeping with torrid weather. And when the mercury ctlmos toward record reaches, no kind of exercise is beat. I shall try to give a non-professional explanation of my statements. I think physicians will agree with me?and 1 am sure that ordinary mortals will scarcely dispute me During lite heated periods the body Is throwing off. but not absorbing much. I nfortunately, this hot weather does not pull down adipose tlsrue very much, and sometimes not at all. But it does tend to weaken the system. To add to this weakened condition the labor of exercise is to pile up more than the body can endura. It Is hard enough for a professional ath lete to undergo that sort of exercise, and the athlete has been reared and trained for physical exertion. Plenty of oxygen and lots of bathing (varied with salt hatha) are better than work In the gymnasium for the torrid days. Freeh air, walking, or whatever takes the mind off the efTect of the heat and off business, will pay a higher divi dend. The business man who begins his exer cise In the summer undertakes a risky contract. He needs something other than his work, but he does not need severe physical exhaustion. On the other hand, let us take the busi ness man who is accustomed to his gym nasium or road work. He likely feels that be wants to keep it up to aome ex tent. The beat time for him io look after thla work In summer Is early In the merning. before the heat baa become so pronounced. Were he to vary hia oper ations with swimming, he would be ahead of the game, although too much swim ming also carries its penalties. Ten min utes In the water is long enough. If the exercise Is to be confined chiefly to swimming, then evening is also a com mendable period?and carries with it both freedom from the heat and smple physi cal action. But any form of exercise during the hot hours of the day does more harm than good?and this cope* pretty close to be ing as true with relation to the profes sional athlete aa it does ta the oaae of the business man.
