STOP USING SANDOW AS A MEASURING STICK!!! 120 years ago natural test levels would have been closer to enhanced levels than today’s true natty levels. On top of that Sandow was most likely a genetic outlier in that time of much higher levels. (At the age of 22 he became the worlds strongest man at his first competition.)
The “Fitness” industry loves using Sandow as a measuring stick. It allows them to have an unattainable physique which leads to the perpetual selling of more supplements and gimmick training. Also it adds validation to their fake natty models since supplement and training sciences have come sooooo far since Sandow.
SANDOW’S TRAINING AND SUPPLEMENT GAME WAS THE BEST THAT EITHER HAS EVER BEEN!!! He ate whole unprocessed foods, slept 8 hours a night and lifted heavy things using his entire body. He didn’t use machines or take fake supplements clogging up the works.
