    Eugen Sandow, were there roids around in the 1890s, crazy physique


    I found this topic on another forum, so i decided to post it up here for discussion, this man was born in the 1800s, is it possible he was doing roids, i mean were there labs creating drugs like that back then, how could he possibly know about nutrition??? i mean people were drinking coca cola with real cocaine in it back than and smoking cigars thinking it was good for your lungs, i doubt they knew about low carb diets and so forth.

    here are some links on him, pretty interesting

    right, its just you kind of step back and think with his physique what did he do, i doubt he had protein shakes, creatine, etc. i know he was probably committed but to think about how much less knowledge he had then someone nowadays has.

    Whole foods, compound lifts. I think it speaks to how well basic implementations can lead to a very favourable physique.
