I originally intended to write a release article for the new Aesthetic Men’s Linen Shirt, and while the purpose of this article remains to highlight them I wanted to take this opportunity to expound upon a mind-set that I have found useful when it comes to achieving my goals. It is simply a matter of asking myself; why can’t I? In this case it was a matter of asking; why can’t Legio Gloria have high quality, well-fitting shirts that are made in Europe? Why can’t my products be every bit as good as those of the competition? And by the competition I don’t mean some random brand, I mean the brands that I want to wear myself. Clothes are important, it is not something you want to leave to chance. I have often gotten the question; where you do find well-fitting shirts? And my answer has always been the same; I don’t know. Since most shirts are made for numales without any distinct v-taper it will be hard for someone with an athletic build (broader shoulders and a smaller waist) to find a well-fitting shirt. When I say athletic build I do not mean bodybuilding-broad but rather the physique that is attained by training in the gym naturally, or training martial arts or training swimming on an elite level; a Neo-Classical physique in other words.
The question that I ask myself in my particular endeavour, as an owner of a clothing brand, is why can’t I have the same level of products as my own favourite brands. My answer is that I can, as long as I put in the work and the research and have the necessary sense of aesthetics. And perhaps most importantly; the patience and sense of Marathon (i.e. recognising that certain endeavours take a good amount of time). I know that I want what I want much more than most, so putting on the pressure and setting the pace high is not a problem, I already know the formula to achieve certain goals, so I can get to work on new projects with a supreme clarity.
I view it as a metaphysical struggle and I intend to be victorious, no matter what the struggle is. That is the mentality, regardless if we are talking about a clothing brand (in my case) or reaching whatever goals you might have yourself. Perhaps you want to get through a challenging university education, or perhaps you want to attain a high level of physical glory, or perhaps you want to participate in an MMA-fight. Ask yourself; why can’t I achieve victory in this endeavour? In some cases it is good to be realistic about your potential, but in other cases it might be good to just believe in yourself and embrace the grind and set the pace high for a long period of time.
The development of the linen shirts was a personal and important victory. I made the measurements of them myself and it was a big investment, so I will freely admit that I was quite nervous when I tried on the first shirt of the final version myself (I had of course tried sample shirts beforehand so I knew which measurements to work from). Fortunately it fitted really well, I was rewarded for putting in the work and research. If you prepare to do something, be it an MMA-fight, powerlifting competition or an exam or engaging in a debate; be sure to prepare accordingly, the better you prepare the better you will fare. It is quite obvious really, but it bears repeating since the absolute majority of people are not willing to put in the work for a long period of time. A good example of this is the following: All men can fight but most are not very good at it. Why? Because most men are too lazy to commit to a strict training schedule. Some of these men believe themselves to be good at it or believe themselves to be tough, but the Primordial Truth teaches us that your self-perceived ‘toughness’ does not matter when a perfectly timed and perfectly placed iron fist comes crashing down on your jaw. Neither does that ‘toughness’ save you from getting slammed onto the pavement by someone who has spent countless hours training MMA or wrestling in addition to attaining a strong deadlift. It is recommended to train hard and to be humble. Some people object when I talk about the virtue of humility, I am (believe it or not) humble in the sense that I know what I am good at (the things where I have put in the work for a long period of time), just as I know what things I am not as good at, for those things I adhere to the guidance of men I trust.
I recently attended a debate night talking about the EU and the future of Europe. My clothing for the evening; the Aesthetic Linen Shirt. This was not only because it was a shirt from my own brand, it was also because it was the best suiting and most aesthetically pleasing shirt I had. It felt good putting it on, it was the sensation of victory. A victory long in the making. When talking about life as a struggle or about self-improvement you must learn to recognise victories. Five years ago (it feels both like yesterday and 500 years ago), I won a strongman competition for students. It was a great day and it felt great winning, but the true victory was that it turned out to be a great video. I have since made equally popular training videos, and each of those have been victories as well, because my goal is to inspire as many men of my bioculture (the European one) as possible to train hard. About one and a half years ago I won my first MMA-fight, the main reason for participating was to lead by example, so that the same men could be inspired to start training MMA themselves. It was thus a two-fold victory. It is my wish and belief that the training videos I have made since have also inspired guys to start training MMA – uploading those videos have thus also been victories.
How can you apply this mind-set into your everyday life? Start recognising victories; every time you progress in the Temple of Iron, no matter how small the increment, view it as a victory. Whenever you learn a new technique in a martial art, view it as a victory. It doesn’t matter if you train BJJ and have been submitted 15 times during rolling, the training session is still a victory if you have learned something new that session. Whenever you gain a new insight, from a video or book or lecture, view that as a victory. I am the result of a thousand such victories, the reason you are reading these words is not because of a few significant victories but due to the many smaller ones. I enjoy the grind, the Marathon, because I know when it comes to durability I have an edge. Soon I will hopefully reach 100 000 subscribers on YouTube, this is not due to a few viral videos, it is due to a steady production of content over a long period of time. So every time I post a video that is appreciated I have gained a victory.
This article got a bit longer than I had originally intended but I thought these were some thoughts that were worth explaining. That being said the Aesthetic Men’s Linen Shirt is made in the historically glorious nation of Lithuania and is available here: https://legiogloria.com/product/aesthetic-mens-linen-shirt-sky-blue/
Moreover, I added a page on the Legio Gloria site: Made in Europe which I recommend checking out.
Lastly, since you have read this far I would like to salute you for taking the time to read this, we need more reading and less scrolling. Also, speaking of reading, my book is completed now it is just a matter of starting the production of it.

I recently read the book Bronze Age Mindset. Bronze Age Pervert was kind enough to send me a signed copy, which I took great delight in reading and it now stands proudly on my bookshelf. Since we share parts of our respective fan bases and we alight in terms of aesthetics and, to a certain extent, outlook on life I thought it was appropriate to invite him to do a written interview.

My dear wife made chokladbollar (I can attest to their superb taste) using the following recipe. You can modify the recipe as you see fit. Moreover, although Jotunheim whey is clearly superior to lesser brands you can use any chocolate whey to make this recipe.
- 150 gr butter (room temperature).
- 1.5 dl stevia.
- 3 tablespoons cocoa.
- 2 scoops of Jotunheim Nutrition Chocolate whey protein.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. 2 tablespoons of cold brewed coffee.
- 4 dl oats Some coconut flakes to roll them in.
Instructions: In a bowl, heat the butter a little bit until it is soft enough to mix. Add the stevia or sugar and mix it thoroughly with the butter. When mixed, add the liquids: vanilla extract and the 2 tablespoons of cold coffee. Mix well. Add the cocoa and scoops of chocolate whey and mix again until well blended. Lastly, add the oats and combine well until you get a dough like texture and you start shaping balls. Roll them in coconut flakes. Ready!

The main release is the Sword of Mars – Athletic Hoodie. The garment itself is similar to the Pagan Nature And Gym Hoodie (but with a few alterations to the seams), so a bit thinner than a regular hoodie, which is suitable for late spring, summer and early autumn (or year round in the Temple). The garment has two designs, the main one is the Sword of Mars itself and the second one is the embroidered logo, which is the new Legio Gloria emblem. The sword design on the back represents a pre-Medieval sword (I am reluctant to call those ages ‘the Dark Ages’). A medieval sword would usually have a broader hilt. This sword has a shorter hilt and thus hearkens back to a time of heroism and myth – the late stages of the Roman Empire.
The name itself can also be used for the legendary sword of Attila the Hun (also called the Sword of Attila or the Sword of God). Admittedly the first time I heard about the Sword of Mars was when playing through the Hunnic campaign in Age of Empires 2. The name stuck with me because of its sheer epicness, and the semi-historic and semi-mythic origins of it. Attila – the Scourge of God was a terror in Europe but was ultimately defeated at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains by an alliance of Visigoths led by Theodoric I and Romans led by Flavius Aetius. This period in European history is both interesting and important to be familiar with. The situation in the Western Roman Empire (during the Migration Period) and the situation in Western Europe today is quite similar.
Naming this garment The Sword of Mars is an attempt to capture the sense of epicness of the time period. And, of course, as mentioned above the name itself is highly inspiring. As with all Legio Gloria garments this must be worn with straight back and a firm gaze. Always approach the world in a life-affirming way. Embrace the adventure and embark upon the quest of glory.
Moreover, the Lionheart Handsome Shorts are now back in stock. Once they are sold they will not reappear in the Hanseatic warehouse so if you are mesmerised by their aesthetic splendour you should obtain them sooner rather than later.
The second release is the Dark Enlightenment – Gym Tanktop. This garment has the same cut as the Valknut Tanktop. Although many disciples of the Iron prefer to train in t-shirts I have personally always liked to train in either tanktops or stringers. This is not only in order to see the musculature in the gym mirrors, but also because it allows a bit more flexibility and gets less sweaty (during the warmer months). The Legio Gloria symbol is embroidered.
Lastly, if you have any epic pictures you want to share I encourage you to upload them to Instagram with the tag #legiogloria. I scroll through that tag every once in a while and it is always good to see some cool pictures of ladingtons from around the world. Also, use the tag rather than tagging @thegloriouslion since those tags get lost among all other notifications.
The MMA-shorts seen in the latest training video: Hyperborean Sacred Werewolf Training for the Rebirth of Evropa will hopefully be out in May, we stumbled upon another issue that needed correction. Yet again, I cannot stress how perfect these must be, since legionaries might compete in them.
All new releases are available at legiogloria.com.
Wishing you all a great weekend ahead.

This is a clarification for anyone wondering about the supplement industry. First and foremost it must be clarified that Jotunheim Nutrition has the adequate certificates to guarantee clean and safe products (the ones in the picture above are the ones I have put on the products). Since I am consuming all of the products myself I want to ensure a high quality. I will also say that the Swedish food industry (including the supplement industry) is generally speaking quite a bit better than other countries. Sweden has many problems, but a high standard of food is not one. For example, compared to the more liberal American food market the Swedish one is heavily regulated (which in this case is good). This applies for supplements as well. Moreover, since Sweden also places high demands upon ethical treatment of animals it means that Swedish cows are happier and healthier, which in turn grants healthier dairy products (whey included). Having grown up in the country-side myself, I can comment on their living conditions; i.e. seeing them grazing in their pastures, which is far removed from the outright heinous conditions the factory-farm cows live under. I don’t know which whey products to recommend in markets outside of Sweden but I do suggest you do some research and see if you can trace the origins of the dairy; optimally they will come from a farm that practices ethical treatment. Lastly, a note on whey itself – it is simply a high protein dairy product (so not a supplement but food).

The long awaited Season Pack of the Ages is finally at hand. The long wait was due to the fact that we had to figure out a reasonable solution in terms of shipping and packaging.
This package is available in the following countries: Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom. The availability is dependant upon the shipping cost and various toll regulations, for this reason Norway had to be excluded from the list (it saddens me but such is life). It is also available in Sweden, but Swedish customers may add other items as well (and the products can be ordered separately).
The Season Pack of the Ages contains the following products:
1st. Creatine Monohydrate
1st. EAA: Amino-Cola
1st. Zinc of the Ancients
2st. Magnesium of Eternal Vigour
1st. Vitamin D3
This is the only product that can be ordered to non-Swedish destinations. I know shakers are in high demand but due to their size (size is more of a factor than weight in this case) the shipping will become unreasonable and I simply do not want to charge that heavy a shipping fee (the shipping fee would be similar in price to a Legio Gloria t-shirt). If things run as they should, non-Swedish addresses can only order this product. However, if for whatever reason, it should be possible to add other items to the cart; don’t do it, the order will be refunded. The box is filled to the brim with the products mentioned above – so any other products cannot be included.
The point with a Season Pack of the Ages is to invest in a stock of minerals that will last you a bit longer. The first batch is limited to 50 packages, and after that we will see how it goes and look at further options, a coming option that I can think of is to have a Season Pack full of EAAs since these are so very good (not the citrus flavour though, that is merely decent), but we will see how this works out first.
Moreover, I get the question every time I post about Jotunheim Nutrition; when will the products be available in Vinland, the New World? The answer is that I do not know. The only reasonable course of action in this regard is to set up both production and distribution in the United States, and it will probably be a while until that happens, especially considering so many other things are happening personally at the moment – all joyous, but time consuming, things. Although it is hard to give an estimation of time, I hope to make some progress within the coming year.
Lastly, to answer some questions in regard to the garments. The Lionheart Shorts will be back in stock in about two weeks accompanied by a new hoodie design and a new tanktop design. The MMA-shorts will arrive in approximately three weeks. The Handsome Shorts: Mark III will be back later in the spring. The Caledor Gym Tank will also be back later in the spring, but with a new design in the front.
If you have read this far I wish you a productive and joyous week ahead. Spring is officially here so make sure to set the pace high with the training.

Before elaborating on the new products I will answer a question that might come up: why write in English if we currently only sell to Sweden? It is because I don’t want to exclude my long-time followers from my various endeavours (and the overwhelming majority of my followers are not Swedish speakers). Moreover, it is not only about the products, I always try to bestow some knowledge and wisdom whenever I write an article or make a video. Lastly, I am still looking at shipping options for special packages (containing vitamins, EAA, creatine and shakers, in addition to a coming PWO-product) that can be sold to other European Union countries.
First among the new releases is this new shaker. It is just like the Valknut Shaker made out of non-toxic plastic (BPA & DEHP-free). It is made in Hungary – which together with Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia make up the Visegrád Group. The Visegrád Group is a bastion of light and reason in an otherwise anti-European EU. There are Hungarians who like to aim criticism against Viktor Orbán, and of course no man is perfect, but I think we can all agree that it is preferable to have a leader who does not work relentlessly to replace his own people.
That being said, the shaker is being sold together with magnesium, which is a supplement that is highly recommended when training hard, if you start experiencing fatigue (not primarily in training but in your everyday life) it might be due to a lack of magnesium. The reason they are sold together (the same reason goes for the Valknut Shaker and zinc) is that it makes more sense in terms of shipping to sell them together.
The next release is another EAA flavour. We aimed for a peach ice-tea style for this product and it turned out really well. It is, just like the Amino-Cola one sweetened with sucralose. For those who prefer stevia as sweetener we do have the EAA – Citrus. However, it bears mentioning that the citrus amino acids do not share the same divine taste as the cola and peach ones (it is still good though – just not as good).
Since the chocolate whey was so popular I thought the only reasonable course of action was to expand the sortiment of whey with another flavour. It tastes similar to the chocolate one but with a touch of orange. Also, for those who prefer whey with stevia we have restocked the popular Whey 80 – Banana. Furthermore, a note on the use of aspartame, I consume it myself and have done so for many years. The reason for this is beautiful in its simplicity, I have concluded it to be safe in moderate amounts, you can read more about research on aspartame here: https://jotunheimnutrition.com/2018/06/11/is-aspartame-dangerous/. This being said you can opt for the banana whey should you feel more comfortable with not consuming aspartame, the choice is yours.
Vitamin D3 is a supplement I have always spoken warmly of. The reason it was not among the first releases was simply due to the fact that it was summer then (supplementing with vitamin D3 is redundant if you get enough sunlight).
In regard to the coming PWO-product it will be out in about two months or so. I will be quite clear that it is only supposed to be taken once a month – every full moon to be more precise. I do not recommend using PWO-products prior to every session, I rarely use them myself (the same goes for energy drinks) a few of each every year on certain occasions. The best pre-work out – or rather the best preparations for a good session consists of getting in an adequate amount of sleep and adhering to a good diet.
Lastly, and this is for all Swedish gentlemen in Uppland – head over to our Instagram account for an announcement of a glorious activity taking place next week.

This is a note and a heads-up for anyone seeking collaborations (on YouTube or podcasts etc.) during the coming time. I will just have enough time to make videos for my own channel so I cannot participate in any other collaborations (except the ones planned since a long time ago). So if I have to say no it is not because I do not appreciate your work or that I do not think your work (whomever you might be) is not important enough. It is simply a matter of focusing on what matters the most (in terms of metapolitics and culture) – which is my own channel.

It is my great pleasure to announce the following new releases for Legio Gloria. Before introducing the new garments I would like to state that this (being responsible for bringing out the best possible garments) has become my passion; and it is truly a joyous sensation to be able to pour all of my energy into this endeavour. I approach this much in the same way as the gym; constant progression, attention to details, building upon a solid base, and last but not least – having patience. There is so much I want and I have learned that it is indeed possible to get what you want (to reach your goals) if you are persistent and committed to continuous improvement. The sensation I get when I see the finished (after a good bit of back and forth in all different stages of production) product (in this case these new releases) is akin to the sensation I have gotten in previous endeavours – striving for physical perfection for example, seeing the complete picture with all the details added together. It is truly glorious.
The Angel of Enlightenment – Ascend to a higher state of being – pursue physical and metaphysical greatness. Some battles are fought with the sword – others with the book, thus you should be prepared to use both in your quest to bring about the Golden Age from the Kali Yuga.
Imperivm Evropa – This garment stands for loyalty to Mother Evropa. The use of V instead of U is a nod to the Roman way of spelling. The statue depicted is based upon the works of the German sculptor Arno Breker and the words surrounding the statue; veritas (truth), honorem (honour), ivstitia (justice) signifies values that should be upheld. The statue is a homage to Classical Europe, and this garment is designed to promote European (including America and Australia and the other former colonies) unity and pride in this legacy. Classical aesthetics such as this can be found all over Europe and is thus a good symbol to promote a much needed cultural re-awakening. When wearing this garment you should strive to become the statue; the physical representation of eternal metaphysical ideals.
Royal Byzantine Black Sun – The Byzantine Black Sun is a proud symbol only meant to be worn by high Thumos men. The Byzantine eagle stands for European unity, something that is needed more than ever before. The Black Sun stands for a spiritual awakening, something that also is needed more than ever before. The purple colour of this version is an homage to the Byzantine Empire.
Ride The White Tiger – Ride the Tiger, do not succumb to the decadence of the world around you, but steer the tiger onward to glory. The Modern World offers plenty of detrimental temptations, should you fall off the tiger you will get trampled underfoot and eaten. However, if you manage to stay on its back it can take you to ever new heights. Riding the Tiger in a life affirming manner means enjoying the ride and making the most of where the tiger can take you.
The passage above is an excerpt from my book (which will be released this spring).
All the above designs are now available in the webshop: https://legiogloria.com/
