MANILA, Philippines – Jose Rizal was a Renaissance man, best known for his forays into the sciences and the arts. While history puts greater emphasis on his academic intellect, he was also a sportsman: a fencer, a weightlifter, and a gymnast.
In this episode of Basagan Ng Trip, historian and educator Leloy Claudio is joined by Mark Limbaga, a fitness trainer who has studied the history of physical fitness. Limbaga trains using the Strongfirst technique, a method founded by Russian Pavel Tsatsouline. The Strongfirst technique uses Russian kettlebells, and draws heavily on techniques seen in Rizal’s journals.
