Do we really need to be strong and fit?
It depends on the type of life we want to lead. Do we want to be “normal”? When normal increasingly means a person who eats junk food all day, abuses their body in every way imaginable and has a body that looks truly terrible in the mirror?
Or do we want to look much better, even beyond normal? Something heroic? Where our bodies are truly a temple that we can be proud of. A body that makes heads turn, feels great and performs how we need to when we need it to.
If you choose the second option, the option of a heroic body, then getting strong and fit is a must.
This Guide gives you a straight path to that goal. Without endless cardio. Without wasting your time on exercises that don't anything. And without the need for expensive supplements, drugs, a personal trainer or any other distractions or potential dangers.
In our Guide you'll approach getting strong and fit with the “take no prisoners” and “accept no excuses” approach of the ancient Spartans. Famous as one of the most strong and fit societies the world has ever produced.
If you've seen any of the “300” movies, or read “Gates of Fire”, you'll know exactly why the Spartans are an inspiration. If you haven't see them or read the book, check them out. You'll be glad you did.
Here's some of the things you're about to learn, Spartan style:

The Hidden Truth About Recovery.
Follow the method in this Guide and you'll never have to worry about “over training” again. The Spartans didn't worry about training too often and you won't either. Nor will you find yourself having to live in the gym.

How to Eat to Build the Body of a Greek God (or Goddess). Yes, you are what you eat. But when you eat can be even more important. The Spartans knew exactly how vital this is to becoming strong and fit and now you will too.
How to Develop the Mind of a Spartan.
Once you start thinking like a Spartan, the physique of a Spartan is just a matter of time. Not only will this mindset help you conquer the gym, but it will also enhance every single other area of your life, big and small.
There's more too, of course.
Strong and fit. I'm very happy to have the chance to help you forge the new you, that is overflowing with both these qualities.
Are you ready for battle?
Let's get to work...
CHAPTER 1 - STRENGTH TRAINING AS
If you spend any amount of time inside a mainstream gym, you'll see lots of people pushing around light weights. Not just light weights for you (let's face it everyone has to start somewhere, don't they?), but light weights for THEM.
This isn't how you build a Spartan body.
In fact that's not how you really efficiently build anyone up to being fit, aside from the very few who are blessed with miracle genetics.
We're taking the opposite approach. Perhaps, a harder one, but one which offers quicker and more abundant rewards. We're training to get STRONG.
With strength comes function, health and a fine physique.
A physique that's both “show” and “go.”
This is much better than the alternative, trust me.
Breaking Free from the Myths of Bodybuilding
New school bodybuilding brings with it many faulty ideas and methods you are much better doing without. Hopefully, your head isn't too full of them. But in case it is, or even if a few have drifted in, keep these following things in mind while you work through our program and become a Spartan:
High Reps Are A Waste Of Time.
Going for a “pump” by performing exercises in endless reps with light weights, a method advocated by many bodybuilding gurus is a waste of time. You're not “toning” your muscles or whatever else they claim.
Instead we will focus on building strength which translates into a better looking body. For most exercises this means staying close to 5 heavy reps.
Stay Away From Too Many Isolation Exercises.
