The Indian Club Exercise: With Explanatory Figures and Positions: Photographed from Life by Simon D. Kehoe, published in 1866, is a notable work on physical fitness and exercise during the 19th century. The book focuses on the use of Indian clubs, which are a type of exercise equipment resembling bowling pins with handles, in promoting physical strength and conditioning.

Kehoe's book provides detailed explanations of various exercises and positions using Indian clubs. What makes this book particularly noteworthy is its inclusion of photographs, which were relatively rare in exercise manuals of that era. The photographs depict individuals demonstrating the exercises, offering readers a visual guide to proper form and technique.

In addition to the instructional content, the book also discusses the general principles of physical culture and includes portraits of celebrated athletes known for their muscular development achieved through the Indian club exercise. The Indian Club Exercise is a historical artifact that sheds light on 19th-century attitudes towards physical fitness and exercise, and it remains of interest to historians, fitness enthusiasts, and those studying the history of exercise and physical culture.
