Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, 28, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Ur Lamb In your column you advised a small ladj to build some muscles How do you do that'' I am past 50 5-foot-4 and only weigh 107, but have no stamina 1 exercise faithfully but it gets, no easier If an exercise to start out five times MX months later I am still only aole to do about 20 and each one is just as hard to do as the first week that I did it I have no weight problem but have had a protruding tummv all my life and no ex- ercise does anything about reducing it Dear Reader Your lack of stamina may be related to other factors besides the size of vour muscles Lots of small people are able to go and go, never seeming to tire There is a difference in repeating and repeating an ex- ercise which we call en- durance expresses and those that build muscles, which we call strength exercises A long distance lunner repeats the same movements over and over A weight lifter may lift the weight a few times he rests and at regular inter- vals in his training the amount of weight he lifts is gradually increased A muscle will only get large enough to lift the size of load it is asked to lift If your arms are not used to lifting heavy objects moving them rapidly will not develop large or strong muscles There are numerous ways to load a muscle to make it work harder and harder, thereby enlarging and gaining in strength Weight lifting is one example Many people do get some benefit out of contracting op- posing muscles, the isometric exercises You can demonstrate this by holding vour arm out then tensing all the muscles in the arm so the arm and fist are rigid Hold it a few seconds and relax the muscles Repeat the exercise I prefer that these exercises be combined with muscle movement You can do that by holding the arm fairly rigid and then, while the muscles are tense moving the arm by bending the elbow and various movements By moving the muscles while they are tense vou put the stress on different muscle fibers and help to produce enlargement or increased strength in a more uniform way throughout the muscle You can use this same prin- ciple for almost any muscle in the body You can do it with your legs and thighs The com- bination of contracting and moving the muscles is a com- bination of what exercise specialists call isotonic and isometiic exemses The isotonic exercises are those that involve movement You can do voluntary mus- cle contractions including the lower abdominal muscles, while lying down, sitting or standing You can also do leg lifts for that lower abdomen Finally, don't forget posture A lot of people would not have as much problem with the ab- domen if they would just learn to hold their chests up and not compress the abdomen With the chest and shoulders up, rather than slouched, and a conscious effort to hold the stomach muscles in, the problem is nnt markprj in many instances Send your questions to Dr Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P 0 Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N Y. 10019 For a copy of Dr Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Losing Weight" booklet Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nov 28, 1974 At least 491 persons died in a flash fire at Boston s Cocoanut Grove nightclub 32 years ago today in 1942 Dozens of persons were crush- ed to death or jammed too tightly to escape the flames as the flames roared through the packed pleasure spot in seconds Nightclub singer Bill Payne saved 10 patrons by leading them into a huge base- ment ice box 1895 The first United States car race, covering a distance of 52 miles between Chicago and Waukegan, 111, was won by J Frank Duryea with an average speed of 7Vz miles an hour 1908 A mine accident at Mariana Pa killed 154 1916 Germany made its first air attack on London in the First World War 1919 Lady Astor became the first woman elected to the British House of Commons Goren on Bridge BYCHARLESH GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF 1974 Th.
