The Greek Hero at the Gym
Meagan brought me an article from The Wall Street Journal that looks at current attitudes in fitness. They include females wanting to be strong, training that consists of compound vs. isolation movements, and the current attitude of fitness that is both mind and body.
The article also details some historical aspects including the Greeks, the mindset of fitness in the 70s and how gym equipment was developed to make movement easier, but not necessarily more effective.
It’s an interesting read, so check it out here: http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-greek-hero-at-the-gym-1465577901
