Because they sculpted their god statues from scaled up living people who were ripped skellingtons. How the fuck do you think people draw comic book heros? You think they get a 14 foot tall mutant to model for hulk? You think creative art is a modern invention?

Gymnastic (bodybuilding) was part of the education (for citizens). Philosophy and working out, this is your mantra (with good clean food).

Men had naturally higher test historically than they do now. Also those statues didn't depict the average Greek man.

roids don't make you shredded. calorie balance does. They could never get as huge as today's guys, but with

Kek. I am from Smyrna, the place that is right across Athens. Even in the 90's when I was growing up we had seasonal fruits. And this is years after the ancient Greeks left, after the Columbian Exchange, after greenhouse, after industrial revolution and god knows how many agricultural revolutions Anatolia went trough. People did not have fresh fruits before all this all year around. They only had dried fruits in winter and definitively not available to in abundance

This. It was probably even rare for men to look like this during the Renaissance. A lot of the sculptors during the Renaissance would study anatomy too (guys like Michaelangelo and shit) so they would have an idea of the raw muscle structure and more then likely embellished the size to appear more 'god like'.

For the small standard deviation featured in a study such as that you do.

"Hey guys we dug up 15 skeletons, these skeletons form an extremely rough normal distribution and we are going to conclude very minute data from it".

I would go grab my Statistics notebook so I could calculate the exact n required to give the study power, but I have better things to do, plus I fucking hate Stats.

There were most physically fit Greeks back then, considering that 90% of Greeks were farmers who would go to war often. Take a strict diet which probably left the average Greek soldier with low body fat and then artistic inspiration, and you have Ancient Greek artists creating these depictions by essentially Photoshopping the appearance of a very lean soldier.

>>35654740
SRS does not have a fixed number of acceptable subjects, the subjects required to achieve the appropriate power is dependent upon the variance in the data.

They had athletes. And I'm pretty sure basic bodyweight like pushups and squats existed back then

they didn't eat as much as we do today and artwork is exaggerated
>>
>>35655023
Pretty much, the average soldier probably had small but visible muscles, so all artists had to do was make them bigger.
