Sandow's routine includes the tiniest amount of chest because a large chest was considered feminine in his time (like boobs). Here's his routine taken out of his book:
Just add the chest exercise of your choice, dumbbell flyes if you want to stick with the style of it.
Ever since the Russians created steroids in post-WWII/Cold War era, almost every admirable body will be scrutinized and have the tiniest belief that in some form that person took performance enhancers. People will swear they're natty when it's obvious they aren't just because of the stigma it is to be known you took roids. And those who truly are natty will have haters to discredit them. It's a lose-lose situation.
The only proof we have that sandow and hackendshmidt and their likeliness that they're natty is because roids hasn't been invented yet. But if they were alive today, no doubt people would call them frauds and say they took PEDs
>These guys are just really ripped. Put on a shirt and they look DYEL
>personally if I'm natty and someone accuses me of juicing it makes my day everytime
Same. I used to get asked if I was on gear all the time when I started lifting (have good genetics and played a lot of sport as a kid, so put on muscle in visible places like arms, shoulders and calves really quickly). It rarely happens these days, though.
I'm pretty sure it was the Russians, the cold war had caused so much competition between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R that it had created the likes of the space race but as well as the olympics.
And just for normie's sake, if you're a gym goer and people know for a fact you do meth or cocaine and not steroids, they wouldn't really consider it PEDs
Provide one single solitary source, if you could. I see shit like this every time pre-steroid lifters are brought up and no one ever provides any evidence.
Literally the greatest natty physique of all time. And the amazing thing is, he doesn't even have great genetics. He just worked hard for 30 years!
not amazing but realistic natty goal body
They all look like shit compared to Zyzz
Not even kidding
