how the fuck were greeks so shredded when roids didn't exist back then?
yes yes good goyim. you have been taught well.
Lift heavy ass weights son. Pic related
Tfw when your body is a work of art.
This is how the average greek looked.
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?
They didn't waste time shaving their beards like normies!
Gymnastic (bodybuilding) was part of the education (for citizens). Philosophy and working out, this is your mantra (with good clean food).
Don't waste your time, be an good Epicurean.
roids don't make you shredded. calorie balance does. They could never get as huge as today's guys, but with
>walking around with armor and shield
>running long distances, doing push ups and squats (documented)
>practicing sword and spear technique
>eating olives, grapes, bread and meat
anyone would like a shredded statue.
You know how manlets make faster gains? Everyone was pretty fucking short compared to now and some Greeks focused on athletics.
Fucking manlets. Man, my fantasy is to travel back in time to a greek society or something, but equipped with guns and my modern day intelligence. I'd rape women all day and lift with the philosophers.
How do people fall for this bait each time?

>Asks how Ancient Greeks (who lived THOUSANDS of years before the sculpture was made) attained these bodies
>People fall for it each fucking time
The veggies they ate were loaded with minerals.
They were always at war, the entire purpose of life was to become as physically strong as possible, win wars while conquering and raping everyone across the Mediterranean for glory.
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'.
The statues of Greek heroes and gods are idealized depictions of men and women. Who else would be perfect, but the gods?
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.
Here, something more realistic.
Curiously, their ideal male physique was not even close to the muscle beasts of nowadays.
You can only unlock classical physique mode by being well proportioned and below 175cm
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.
