Ancient Hellenic training methods were based on the principles of physical, mental, and spiritual development.

Physical training focused on strength and endurance, while mental training focused on developing mental discipline and concentration.

Physical training included running, jumping, and throwing, as well as lifting weights and wrestling. Spiritual training focused on developing selfawareness and understanding of the natural world. Mental training included memorization, problem solving, and debate. Spiritual training focused on meditation, prayer, and contemplation. Ancient Hellenic athletes also practiced a variety of stretching and breathing exercises to prepare for competition.

Another important part of Hellenic training was the use of diet and nutrition to maintain health and performance. Ancient athletes ate a diet rich in grains, fruits, and vegetables, and drank plenty of water. The main fat they consumed was olive oil. This was accompanied with vegetables, nuts, wine, barley and wild greens, They also used herbal remedies to treat injuries and illnesses. The main traditional medicine was base don the use of early harvest olive oil made from unripe green olives. 

Olive oil made from green unripe olives was recently discovered to contain micronutrients such as phenolic compounds that have a very positive effect on human health. They are ani-inflammatory and anti oxidant in nature and have been described as natural medicine. The EU Health Claim 432/2012 pinpoints the minimum concentration of phenolic compounds in olive oil that may lower LDL oxidation at 5 mg per 20 gm olive oil. They also found the effect was dose dependent.

The modern race to discover the best olive trees and olive to produce high phenolic olive oil began and it has reached new highs.
