Either you wanna feast on that meal you longed to have or lean your muscles to its core and cut every aspect of it to pronounce each muscle specifically and give them the spartan physique; muscle-building since the era after fitness was of vitality, flushed in to every nook of towns and cities.

Weights stammered on the floors and pounds pounded among rubber floored spaces in fitness centers. The screeching sounds of screams endured with every heavy lifts by aesthetically regular builders and sculpturing each muscle with a firm austerity. Things that were never seen before pop out with elegance upon ones’ body like the Vitruvian Man in the art of “Leonardo Da Vinci“. Intriguing it is to witness that humans can endeavor to bring about the bodily structure of Hercules, which centuries ago remained relevant and possible only to the fictions and to the historical evidence of the Roman Empire. Movies like “300” inspired the awakening human to bestow upon ones’ body the strength, which indeed came as pain, made one stronger and bolder, only one thing being missed: the warrior helmet.

To distill the body and train it to bring out the muscular elements may indeed require a little marathon running at least once in two weeks, preferably once a week.

Suggested Workouts:

  • The Spartan Workout: From the workout of the Spartans who acted in the movie 300, here they share their workout routine that they have had stumbled upon.
  • Cobra Workout: Ideally one of the effective workouts for back, where Terry Crews takes you on his Cobra like back workout, bringing out a fierceness with a tattoo of a cobra upon his back.

A great run is great for the body, but even better for the soul 🙂 I also like one line that I think says a lot about the human spirit and working out: “the awakening human to bestow upon ones’ the strength, which indeed came as pain, made one stronger and bolder” Gotta be bold to chase down new adventures!
