Spend all day working out.

Spend all day being forever along because working out to much.
Spend all day with a bunch of sweaty muscular men.
Spend all night getting that god tier semen protein.

If you are judging based on the picture you posted, then probably vikings.

In reality though, you'd have to look at the training they participated in, combined with how much meat was in their diets.

Think greeks with their intense training. They were obsessed with obtaining aesthetics.

Think about the scots. Their workout consisted of every event in the highland games 5x5

I dunno about the vikings training. But they loved shrooms

Implying that the only Greek state to not participate in the conquest of Asia were the Spartans.

So basically the only time Greece was truly successful against Persia was the time the Spartans were left out.

So yeah you are right, the Spartans were the original /fit/ because they sucked balls.

No they didn't, just drop it.

If we're talking norsemen/spartans/knights/samurai whatever, it all comes down to what kind of diet they'd have because they all trained pretty rigourously.

Don't know what Spartans ate. Vikings ate a lot of fish. Enough so that they were a few centimeters taller than your average european at the time (based on archeological evidence). I think Japanese ate a lot of fish too but on the other hand, they often only ate a lot of plain rice with nothing else to it. Not exactly something you'd get buff on.

Knights probably ate a lot of game.

But for real just because you watched that Viking show doesn't mean Vikings actually looked liked that, Scandinavian people are primarily endomorphs and have a lot of muscle and fat, (I and all of my family are Norwegian).

Spartans literally obsessed over war, they bred for it all there lives, and they were not fed too much, but not too little either, they had to learn to steal to get fed to make them stronger. Spartans are the OGs

>it's not that hard to invent.
It is a very unpractical form of hunting in most areas of the world and in recorded history it has only been practiced where other forms of hunting, because of the environment or because of lack of access to technology, have been difficult or impossible to practice.

The most efficient human survival skill is adaption, and people adapt to their environment in ways to make their lives more efficient. Persistence hunting is not practical unless the hunters have no other choice because it takes a lot more work than any other hunting form.
>>
>>35513204
Those are some great assertions. Really unfortunate about the lack of a single shred of evidence.

We are fucking bipeds with a sweat system, gait, endurance-focused musculature, and the wits to plan ahead, carry water with us, and work in groups. How you could possibly imagine we DIDN'T evolve to overcome the stresses of endurance/persistence hunting is beyond me.

I never said it was all primitives did, anyway. That's you, just trying to make my point look silly. The point is that many primitives were undoubtedly capable of doing it if more efficient methods of hunting failed them. It's our default, worst-case scenario solution.

Though it may take a lot of work, the one good benefit of persistence hunting is that you need almost nothing other than your own fitness to do it. You just fucking go out there and run down an antelope, then kill it with a rock. If you had to drop your spear because some other animal surprised you, and you were separated from your group, you could always, no matter what, run down your prey.

>>
>>35513430
Persistence hunting - the practice of hunting wherein a predator chases a prey animal long enough that the prey animal becomes exhausted or otherwise unable to continue fleeing, at which point the predator can kill it at their leisure.

There, I even reformulated it in my own words. Eat a million dicks with that grin.

https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/508695?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

Here's one of the better examples from "Persistence Hunting by Modern Hunter-Gatherers" by Louis Liebenberg:

"The shortest hunt I witnessed lasted less than two hours (the exact time is not known, since I had to catch up with the hunter) (table 1). In this hunt !Nate ran the entire way, although he sometimes slowed down when he lost the spoor."

oh holy shit, I know this is baiting but I guess it's also my kryptonite.

it says right there he witnessed the fucking hunt, and witnessed one man run the whole way.

and, even if it were not true, what difference does it make whether a group does it or a single person does it? It's still persistence hunting, and you still have to be in ridiculously good shape to do it with any kind of reasonable success, and it is still the best explanation we have for the evolution of human physiology.

You have all the hallmarks of a student educated only in the liberal arts with no science training. leave it to a fucking postmodernist to give out all the critique, with none of the opposing theory to present a better alternative.

The greatest powers of the time were defeated by the Mongols:

Jin China
Tangut China
Kwaresmian empire (annihilated completely)
The far less advanced (at the time) Europeans (Russians, Georgians)

They never built anything and they set humanity back by destroying these advanced civilisations, but the question was who is the most fit. The average Mongol warrior would have the skill and fitness of a professional athlete of today.

Nope.

You just made sure anything you say is questionable after that retarded fucking statement. Jesus Christ, pull something more believable out of your ass.

They were about the same size, simmer down

saracens, persians, and mamluks were pretty fit, they often had medium to light armors but there were many warriors who had heavy ass fucking scale pieces and overall they had a pretty hearty diet and used axes and javelins

No, they weren't even close. The bow they used was very short but it made up for some of the lost power by being a recurve and by being made of composite materials.

How would you divide it? Its not a fucking straight-line race where you can station dudes out beforehand. What if the prey takes a left-turn?
And you cant have the other dudes running with you because you know what? They'll be as exhausted as you.
You fucking retard

Just a reminder that vikings are beyond a doubt the most overrated historical group that has ever been. Literally just a bunch of boatnigger farmers who had too much free time on their hands.
