I am not talking about the religion and such..More generally, beliefs spring actions. Modern generation believes that nutrition, special exercises, routines
can provide a shortcut. These beliefs explain their action. I guess, and it is almost conviction, that old timers just did not believe in shortcut. This is it!
I didn't know nutrition, special exercises ( bag work maybe?) and routines were considered a shortcut. also, your being way to general by saying this gen. there's plenty of fighters currently that are training almost identically to old timers.
