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.

Roman Delphi and Its Pythian Games

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.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1867 edition. Excerpt: ... 24 Do. Decadrachm, same types. Only two or three specimens of this coin appear to be known; they seem to be rather older (Leake thinks 'much older') than the Persian wars. One in the British Museum has a deep notch, which Leake calls 'the Persian countermark'; it often occurs on coins of the Persian empire, see Div. II. n. 96. 25,26 Do. Later tetradrachms with magistrates' names, and of lighter weight. The head of Pallas on this class of tetradrachms is quite different from the foregoing, and is undoubtedly copied from her statue by Phidias in the Parthenon. The secondary symbols (caduceus on n. 25, and youths on n. 26) are certainly connected in some way with one of the magistrates. The date of n. 26 is about 216 B.C. See preceding remarks. 27 Do. Later tetradrachm with monograms of magistrates. 28 Do. Drachma of the usual types. The types are the same as the tetradrachm: compare especially nos. 22, 23. The drachma, whose normal weight was 67,5 grains, according to Leake, is very nearly the vahie of the modern franc: it contains 6 obols, of 11,25 grains each. All the coins of Athens, certainly known to be such, are of the scale of Solon; and his reform seems to have consisted in reducing the Eginetan standard to his new Attic scale. The reader (and especially the classical student) is recommended to consult Leake's Num. Hell. Europe, pp. 21, 22, for many valuable remarks both on the weights and history of the coins of Athens, which are much too long for insertion here. Since his death M. Beule has written an excellent work on them exclusively, entitled Monnaies d'Athenes, Paris 1858, 4to with figures of all the principal forms in all metals. Queipo estimates the Attic drachma at 65,67 grains. In later times it was much reduced and was...

The Power of Money

Was Athens an imperialistic state, deserving all the reputation for exploitation that adjective can imply, or was the Athenian alliance, even at its most unequal, still characterized by a convergence of interests? The Power of Money explores monetary and metrological policy at Athens as a way of discerning the character of Athenian hegemony in midfifth-century Greece. It begins with the Athenian Coinage Decree, which, after decades of scholarly attention, still presents unresolved questions for Greek historians about content, intent, date, and effect. Was the Decree an act of commercial imperialism or simply the codification of what was already current practice? Figueira interprets the Decree as one in a series concerned with financial matters affecting the Athenian city-state and emerging from the way the collection of tribute functioned in the alliance that we call the Athenian empire. He contends that the Decree served primarily to legislate the status quo ante.
