don't be so 'young' and can't see past your own little today existance, these are tiring rediculous questions.

It's NOT Simply B & W pictures, it's the Quality of them and likewise Old Film Footage, much of it was simply SHIT, not the people.

as BB says, "I can assure you, people walked the same, ****ed the same, shit the same and fought the same, the difference is in the Film & Camera technologies and Proper Use of them!!!

In proper lighting, with proper cameras. Obviously bodybuilding posing and photography is all about capturing the definition.

It's hardly the same as Palooka Maloney posing for a publicity snap for the hacks in some dusty gym in 1930.

Reason why heavyweights today are heavier besides being on average maybe a little more fat is the increase of hip size (Yes, hips are wider today generally) and hws being slightly longer.

more power
and while capes was a beast,arnold was not a weakling by any means


but in general, i will tell you a secret
a guy with ****ing 16 inch thighs is usually not that strong
and yes being strong matters to some degree in any combat sport


have you ever done any ****ing sports? because if you did, you would know that
power much like speed is important

please dont lie
idiot
Shit, you're right, thanks for enlightening me, perhaps you could let the bottom of the ocean know as well

Seeing as their are fighters on here, fighters probably far more accomplished than yourself, that validate the old school fighters as superior, you should stop posting your spasticated monginess and **** off back to the General.

Additional exercises like swimming, rowing and axe training all had benefits to a boxer compared to something like bicep curl which has no benefits beyond aesthetics.

all that was needed lol,

first off, if you really think that lifting weights is only for aesthetics
thats just clueless, and i hate to tell you this but doing push ups
is also resistance training,

so if weights make you still, so will push ups and pull ups

I know, I'm saying you're right - your extensive practical experience has exposed you to higher knowledge such as "nonathletic looking people are often actually NON ATHLETIC" whereas I, as you so accurately determined, am but a physical minnow, unable to tell my tendon insertion points from my muscle fibers. Now please stop having a go at me.

i dont doubt your one of these guys who thinks
that training with weights is useless
and you yourself have not done boxing or any other combat sport

your probably stupid enough to think that
running makes you muscular lol


lets put it this way

some
tell will you
dont lift too much weights
you will end being bulky and stiff like a bodybuilder...


but forget to tell you

dont run to much,
you will end being weak,lanky with no muscles
like a long distance runner


ohh with a shitload of knee and ankle problems

I can tell from your posts you know jack about bodybuilding or boxing, i'll personal train you if you like and then maybe you will know what the **** you are talking about.

It's obvious to anyone but a count to potato type of guy the reasoning behind physiques differing down the era's.
