COACH TRAINS 'HIS BOYS' ANCIENT GREEK STYLE!

Nude Gymnastics
The name of the sport “gymnastics” is derived from the ancient Greek word “gymnos” which literally translated means naked and comes from, the Greek word for naked. In ancient Greece, male athletes trained and competed in the nude.

Physical fitness was a highly valued attribute in ancient Greece for both men and women. Basic gymnastics events were practiced in some form even prior to the introduction of “gymnazein” which means literally, “to exercise naked” or “gymnos” meaning “naked art.”
Christians of the time considered gymnastics Satanic because of its focus on the body and that gymnasts performed in the nude at the all-male ancient Games of Olympia.
Yet numerous posts on popular forums give accounts of lads forced to pound the boards of their cold gym, barefoot and naked, (or more often in just tighty whities) for forgetting their kit or daring too break the rules and wear underwear. Many of the same boys regularly swam naked in front of female spectators as recently as 1979/80!

In the film Catholic Boys, known as Heaven Help Us over there, it clearly shows a mid 1960's swimming lesson with a line up of about 30 entirely naked young males lined up poolside, before jumping in after a lecture from a "brother" walking up and down in front of them as they stand there looking anxious.” Moderate 1
Now considering the case of nude swimming at catholic schools as in the movie Heaven Help Us,
is it REALLY so hard to believe that catholic religious brothers would require boys to be naked? Is that so hard to believe? One would think, in light of recent events, that it would be very credible to assume that if catholic lay religious brothers had the power to force boys to get nude, they would do so!

  1. I swam naked from age 7 through college at the YMCA, competing on the swim team that way. It really was my first public nudity and I still swim that way whenever possible.

  2. I also grew up swimming nude for our public school swim classes and swim team starting in juniour high. They were always all male classes. We also did warm up deck exercises like nude push ups, sit ups, a set of 100 jumping jacks, planks, deep knee bends, leg stretches for about 10 to 15 minutes before swimming. I have not had the chance for nude sports since about 1975 but am interested in nude biking, weights volleyball and so on. Are there any nude swim teams around in the United Sates now?

  3. We always swam naked and I guess we thought nothing of it--we just did it cause that was the custom---the pictures here indicate many other sports done naked----We never did other sports naked just swimming----Class of 65

  4. A naked work out was also possible in some of the Ys. But we were never allowed to lift weights wihtout support.
