Dear Friend, Be a MAN.

This three-word sentence was one of the most important elements of the Charles Atlas Dynamic Tension course. First assembled in the 1920’s and sold through mail order, the course didn’t just teach exercises. It talked about attitude and what it takes to be somebody. Atlas may have been the most famous person to use the “M” word ... but a quick gander through other old-time sports and fitness books will show that authors of the early 20th century actually thought about what a MAN is ... or more importantly, what a MAN can be. Books on wrestling, boxing, jiu-jitsu and judo were often referred to as the “manly” arts. And each time the word “MAN” or “MANLY” is used, the reader gets an injected sense of possibility. The “M” word makes you imagine what you can become if you simply buckle down and follow a daily fitness regimen or combat-oriented art ... or devote yourself to any other worthwhile endeavor. Today we see the exact opposite approach being used. A number of martial arts are sold under the pretense that you do not need to be a “Man” or “manly.” “You don’t need to be tough. Strength, fitness and conditioning are not necessary. Technique is all you need.” Funny, isn’t it? Commercial successes of today appeal to the inadequacy of an individual but offer no internal solutions. Everything is external.
“You don’t need to be ‘A Man’, just use our flashy technique.” “You don’t need to be ‘A Man’, just take our supplements.” “You don’t need to train hard , just take steroids.” “You don’t need to be responsible for your life, it’s other people’s fault.”

In today’s world, how often do we see the words “MAN” and “MANLY” used? Never. Part of this may be that men of today are afraid of what women might think. And I understand this. But it is neither sexist nor chauvinistic for men to think of and work toward becoming an ideal MAN. I believe a man should be a MAN. It is only natural. Whether you are a man or woman, however, I believe it is a crime to dumb

After a few minutes rest we’d head back. “See you later penis breath..imagine my surprise when I was paid only $350 .

My mom and our dog came running from the house. it’s his nature to sting.. I locked him up in a tight bear hug and tossed him to the ground. My brother insisted that he would pay me... As he approached from behind I turned around to meet him face to face..” . The dog starting biting on my leg and my mom and my brother’s friend pulled me off. I took the crew out each morning and we did all the work. Sure. Sensing my brother’s inevitable destruction. We’d get up at five a.which was only $100 more than anyone else on the crew..

That was the last time the bastard ever tried to physically bully me. He crashed into me and instead of me getting bowled over. So one afternoon when my brother was dropping me off at home. Suffice it to say that his car door opened and he tore after me. Oh yeah .

As his hand moved forward the next time. Still fearing for my life. I’m also in favor of fisticuffs. Once I had my bear hug I wrestled him to the ground.
