Physical culture covers more than just weight lifting. Physical Culture encompasses a way of living. A term long lost, it has never been more needed. Back in the the beginning of the 20th Century physical culture was led by people such as Arthur Saxon, Edgar Mueller and Eugene Sandow who were doing strong man shows.
During the 20th century physical culture way of life which holistically incorporated good whole-food nutrition along with physical exercise became watered down and segregated into various, more specialized, disciplines such as bodybuilding, weight lifting and power lifting and so physical culture for the best part was lost. Fast forward to 21st century and in 2012 physical culture is on the upsurge at a time when it is most definitely needed. The internets ability to instantly share information with millions of people has reignited the physical culture flame. A book such as Randy Roach’s ‘Muscle Smoke & Mirrors’ is a fantastic, in depth writing of the history of physical culture. Rand now has part two out and is working on part three. If you want an insightful read into where it all began Randy’s books area MUST READ!
Below I will be building a database of articles and information about physical culture. I hope to add some history as well as up to date training tips and tricks for people of all ages. You don’t have to be a fanatic about physical culture; you just want to have the desire to live well, feel good and be healthy! Incorporate whole foods, daily movement and some form of resistance exercise in your daily / weekly regimen and you will not only look good naked but you will turn back the clock! Remember, Live Longer Live Stronger!
