Sculpting the body like a Greek statue

Why are the statues of Ancient Greece, still today, arousing admiration for their impeccable and exemplary shapes? Yet the ancient Greeks, like the Romans and other peoples who valued physical culture, did not possess the scientific knowledge we can have today. The ancients based their training on the observation of effects, not on understanding the causes. Through experience, they achieved surprising results. With simplicity. Without complexity. And above all thanks to a philosophy (social and personal) based on the ideal of aesthetic harmony and health.

If you want to shape your body, you don’t need expensive and heavy equipment, nor do you need futuristic objects, which are perhaps just an alibi for lack of will. The very few items needed are always within reach and – as you can read in other posts on – you can find them around you, everytime.

You will discover that through micro-training you can achieve extraordinary results: you will not need a futuristic gym. Because, right now, you’re your own gym.

There is another incalculable advantage. This way to the transformation of the body is in harmony with our knowledge of anatomy, physiology and all the complexities of the functions and different needs of the body. A knowledge that was denied to the ancients, who nevertheless were able to achieve results that are still admirable today, immortalized by the statues that have become the classical model of beauty.

For most of its history, humanity has not been able to access the sophisticated gymnastic equipment we have today, in the contemporary age. Despite the revival of calisthenics in recent times, still today most physical training methods are based on the use of weights, dumbbells or accessories. The micro-training can be performed with weights and tools or without special tools. In any case, you will discover that you can get wonderful effects even in the simplest way possible.
