Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.

Portrait of strongman Eugen Sandow; ca.1889.

Looks like a modern MMA fighter.

Amazing to think that he accomplished that without any modern supplements and an archaic training regime.
But then again, “lifting heavy things up and putting them back down again” is an ancient training method, I suppose. Maybe not that much had changed since then?

Eugen Sandow (April 2, 1867 – October 14, 1925), born Friedrich Wilhelm Müller, was a German pioneering bodybuilder known as the “father of modern bodybuilding”.
