Physical training is of importance to any person due to health reasons, effects on mental abilities, delay in effects of aging, physical attractiveness and more. Strength training and body building are of significant interest to the Patriarch since they are strongly related to masculinity (i.e. both emanates and create testosterone) and since muscles have a primal psychological effect on a man power and ability to physical violence. It is thus important that a young Patriarch will be well-informed in the proper methods and biology of strength training and I thus very strongly advise any young Patriarch to read on physical exercise and strength training.
For the past six months I am training according to the book “Body by Science” by John Little and I fully recommend this book. Accordingly this is the first fitness book added to the “Education of a Patriarch” list. The method suggested in this book has the benefit of being short in required time and yet very effective.
Make sure you study the proper methods to train and preserve you body. Read a book on fitness and strength training and apply it.
