Many accounts have been given on the physical abilities of Joseph Smith. The more rigorous and competitive the activity, the better he liked it. Perhaps the main reason he enjoyed activities of this nature is because of his large and muscular frame. His physical constitution was given to exercise and activity.

Sorces reveal that he was well-proportioned, well over six feet in height, with strong limbs, broad shoulders and chest. He weighed about 200 pounds. He naturally excelled in contests involving strength and athletic prowess. Joseph also had a fun-loving and competitive spirit. He loved participating in sporting contests of all types and recognized that physical activity benefited the mind and spirit as well as the body.
