Genghis Khan, on Alcohol


Alcohol is your #1 enemy when it comes to getting and staying int top shape.

Learning from history should be an integral part of our physical education, just as much as learning about the most current trends.

I believe that as a great trainer of warriors, Genghis Khan probably had a pretty good grasp on the effects of alcohol on his troops, and on his entire empire.  Also known as someone who brought unity to warring tribes, I’m sure he had moral reasons as well as physical when he made the following quote:

“Who can’t stop drinking may get drunken three times a month. If he does it more often, he is guilty. To get drunken twice a month is better; once, still more praiseworthy. But not to drink at all – what could be better than this? But where could such a being be found? But if one would find it, it would be worthy of all honour.”
