WHERE YOU TIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 23 January 1929

WHERE YOU TIRE. ? v - - I recently did some hours' hard digging, and next day was very stifl in the legs. Now, in digging it i* the muscles of. the arms, shoulders and, to some extent, of the back thai are principally used. Yet it was not these muscles that sufiered ; it wa* those of the legs. The fact is that it is not so mucb the muscles one is actually using in any particular form of work or exer cise, which get tired, but rather those that are kept under tension, though ?themselves doing no particular work. Ta.e rowing as an example. Just at tirst, the unpractised oarsman will feel fatigue in his back and shoulders but that wears off rapidly. Later on he finds that it is the muscles of the calves and insteps which suffer, and this kind of stiffness continues for a long time. The baker engaged in kneading great masses of dongtw uses hands, ?arms, and back muscles. Yet it is nlnays his legs of which he com plains, and, and the same holds good with fruit packers and pickers. Anothe...
