For those readers who are inclined to visual learning with the least amount of text, we present this illustrated edition of the Weightlifting Attic. We presented the sport of weightlifting in 584 photos and illustrations with comments on their roles in the four-year training program in Sjaak Smorenburg's Weightlifting Room. The illustrations emphasize the techniques of lifting and errors that are inherent in the learning process. We added anatomical illustrations when we felt that the reader might need a hint in figuring out the basic working schemes in the process of lifting. The book covers the following topics: Classical Weightlifting room Power Snatch Snatch, narrow grip One legged Squat Clean and Jerk The Deadlift and Pull Front Squat Failed Snatch Comparison with International lifters Hang Snatch Hang Clean The Snatch: Head, hips, bar trajectories The Clean and Jerk: Head, hips, bar trajectories Jerk from the Rack Front Squat Power Snatch Shoulder Press and Squatting Narrow hand gripped Snatch Anatomy of leg muscles Efficient Olympic Bar Trajectory Training on the head and squatting positioning Mohamed F.

These days there is only one right answer when someone asks you what you are doing after work. Hitting the gym! With an explosion of apps, clothing, devices, and countless DVDs, fitness has never felt more modern, and the gym is its holy laboratory, alive with machinery, sweat, and dance music. But we are far from the first to pursue bodily perfection—the gymnasium dates back 2,800 years, to the very beginnings of Western civilization. In The Temple of Perfection, Eric Chaline offers the first proper consideration of the gym’s complex, layered history and the influence it has had on the development of Western individualism, society, education, and politics. As Chaline shows, how we take care of our bodies has long been based on a complex mix of spiritual beliefs, moral discipline, and aesthetic ideals that are all entangled with political, social, and sexual power. Today, training in a gym is seen primarily as part of the pursuit of individual fulfillment. As he shows, however, the gym has always had a secondary role in creating men and women who are “fit for purpose”—a notion that has meant a lot of different things throughout history. Chaline surveys the gym’s many incarnations and the ways the individual, the nation-state, the media, and the corporate world have intersected in its steamy confines, sometimes with unintended consequences. He shows that the gym is far more than a factory for superficiality and self-obsession—it is one of the principle battlefields of humanity’s social, sexual, and cultural wars. Exploring the gym’s history from a multitude of perspectives, Chaline concludes by looking toward its future as it struggles to redefine itself in a world in thrall to quick fixes—such as plastic surgery and pharmaceuticals—meant to attain the gym’s ultimate promises: physical fitness and beauty.

The Pythian Games are not as well known as the Olympic Games but were nonetheless important over a period of more than a thousand years of Greek and Roman history (c.580 BC to AD 395). In this study Robert Weir examines the rise and significance of this festival of athletics, horsemanship, music and drama held at or near the Delphic temple every four years. The chapters assess the nature of the games and those taking part, its administration and financing, the experience of the visitor, and asks why individuals took part and why people chose to attend the games. Weir argues that, contrary to theories of decline, religious aspects of the games in particular ensured its continued relevance throughout the Roman period although some changes were necessary in line with the demands of the emperor and imperial ideology. The final chapters look at this imperial intervention and at festivals outside Delphi and the spread of its influence.
