Tired of big strong men kicking sand in your face and taking your girlfriend?
No more, my friend! What you need is Dynamic-Tension!
That's the comic out of the back of comic books back in the day. Turns out, the program is still around, making mighty men out of weaklings.
What is it? "The program includes both physical exercises, nutritional information plus FIVE FREE gifts including techniques and skills in Boxing, Wrestling, Jujitsu and Karate, Hand Balancing and Feats of Strength." (From the website.)
From an article in the Smithsonian this month, I learned that this program is not based on weight training, but on muscle training using your own body to transform itself.
Charles Atlas was a self-made strong man, and credited with bringing fitness awareness to a higher level. According to Smithsonian, none other that Ghandi himself wrote in to learn more about Atlas's program.
