And yet, another translation of Vysotsky!

Inhale deeply, arms--out more,
Do not hurry—three and four!
Grace and pliability are emphasized!
All around conditioning,
And hangover quickening,
If you’re still alive and fidgeting-
Exercise!

If you’re working out at home,
Do lie down!—three and four!
Correctly go through every motion!
Lose the tension that you feel,
Get accustomed to the drill!
Inhale deeply right until...
Exhaustion!

Quickly growing ‘round the world--
Flu and illness—three and four!
The disease is expanding; flourishing!
If you’re weak—straight to the grave!
If you want your wellness saved,
With a towel rub yourself,
It’s nourishing!

If already you feel spent,
Sit and stand, sit and stand—
We don’t fear the Arctic and Antarctic!
Our main scholar Dr. Joffe,
Proved to us that booze and coffee
Will be replaced by athletic prophy--
--lactic

All the talking should be stopped
Keep on squatting ‘till you drop
Do not be such gloomy creatures!
If you cannot hold your ardor
Rub yourself with something harder
In the water, you can start the
Drilled procedures

We’re not scared of doltish talk--
In response we run and walk,--
Amateurs are triumphant from the start!
Beautiful!—right from beginning
No one’s losing, no one’s winning
Stationary running is bringing
Peace to hearts!
