Calisthenics


I won't even validate such a suggestion with analysis!  Historians note that Spartan warriors (the purest of boys) practiced calisthenics to both increase agility as well as cultivate a communitarian spirit - 'nuff said Obv fop.   Imagine a phalanx of sunkissed Grecian men moving stretching squatting lunging in unison.  Absolut wunderbar.  Those halcyon days of The Golden Age when to be a boy meant to be fop and the word dandy had not yet entered the Indo-European lexicon.  A world apart and a world we hope for.  Until then let us to do calf-raises in the easy comfort of our homes, in tempo with the pulsating beat of Gloria Estefan's Miami Sound Machine.
