I’ve been thinking about this last few weeks as I look back on 2017 and see how my programming has changed.
Now we have access to gyms, squat racks, information, programs, etc etc…
But how would someone back in the 1500s or 1700s or even 500 BC have gotten stronger?
I mean we all know the basics, you need to lift something heavier and for more reps. You need to eat, rest, and of course work very very hard. Obviously genetics determine things as well.
But how would someone who was not very muscular genetically be able to build muscle back in those days?
How do you think these guys did it?
If you guys had any resources or informative reads please let me know. This is a subject I definitely want to read about.
@Chris_Colucci - please move this post if it’s in the wrong subsection. Didn’t know where this question would go.
