603. Moderate exercise every day will impart strength to the muscles, which without exercise become flabby and enfeebled.—Testimonies for the Church 2:533.

604. If invalids would recover health, they should not discontinue physical exercise; for they will thus increase muscular weakness and general debility. Bind up the arm, and permit it to remain useless, even for a few weeks, then free it from its bondage, and you will discover that it is weaker than the one you had been using moderately during the same time. Inactivity produces the same effect upon the whole muscular system.—Testimonies for the Church 2:529.
