Nero exercises

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)


Neron, as a true music lover and singer, not wanting to lose his great voice did not give up any exercises that professional singers did. Exercises used by him are: lying on the back with flat pieces of lead on the chest, using an enema, taking antiemetics, using a diet that excludes apples and other fruits that are said to have a bad effect on the voice color.

It is worth noting that Nero’s voice was reported as low and hoarse.
