    Ill take my hat off to him. That pic was taken in 1903!!!!!!! He doesnt look fat at all.........He probably looks better than 80% of the guys on this board. Awesome achievment considering he was born in 1878! Back then they didnt know anything.......no diets, no supplements, no steroids .

    They did empahsis healthyfoodslike vegitables,etc and alseating in modertain.
    I also know that the vast majority of them,was against smoking,drinking and the use of drugs(yes they had drug use backthen too,it justwasn't as many doing drugs then as now),and i believe they'd be appaled at the thought of roid's being used.

    Um actually they new quite alot,when it comes to training,its just that we're ahead of then in tremsofnutrional and health knowledege.
    it'sjust that as for as training methods gowe are really so far behind them it's
    pathetic.
    Now before you stone me let me explain:
    1)sure there where trainers and books on weight lifting back then,but everything was done and written in a way that anyone could understand it
    and could get great results,i'll explain in the second point now.

    2)Science has gotten intoand since then basically ruindedworking out on weights,beacsue their constantly changing their stnace on just what makes a muscle grow,and howmany reps it takes to make a muscle grow,one minite itslow repsthey say,the next it's high reps.
    true the old timeers didn't science back then saying this amount of reps works that one doesn't,which is a good thing because they used all sorts of rep and set schemes,some 1per,some 5 some 10,etc same with the sets1 ,2 some times 3 or 4.
    also scienceissaying don't squat,dead liftor press behind the neck,and in the place of those exercises they tout isolation exercises.the old times did mostly the vary exercises that science is saying not to do.

    so you can see why there's so much confusionamong people just starting out
    as to sets,reps,and types of exercises to do.

    3)also because ofscience getting into bodybuilding and them saying that you shouldn'tsocertian exercises because their dangerous,the strength levels of todays bodybuilders are nothing like thoseof the old timers.
    Ask yourself,how may of todays gouys could do a 157 pound one arm militarypress with a barbell?
    remeber bodybuilding dealswith people not a set of equations and chemical formulas so its not a science but an art.

    ok i'll get off my soap box now guys.

    I'd rather (and will) look like Flex Wheeler or Chris Cormier. Preferably at their 99 Mr.O condition.

    Those old school dudes looked GREAT for their time, no doubt about it.

    To bad he's not taking gram after gram of shit into his system.....
    Just because he's not anerexic with a sixpack or jacked on hormones makes him "fat".

    you uneducated fool. and ectomorphian, although HGH is usually blamed for the increase in abdominal area dimensions, its mostly due to eating so much food. ive just finished a bulking cycle, and my stomach is alot larger than before, and just as hard

    He ain't too fat... actually... he has my stats - I am currently sitting at a pretty lean 225-230 at 6 feet tall too. We look pretty similar... can I get into Wikipedia too!?
