    The first image... those were manly men!

    By the second image, you can see they are already pussified with those thick cushy mats on the floor.

    Notice the lack of isolation exercises and split routines.

    Crossfit is rediscovering the default approach to "physical culture" of the 19th century; train everything ...

    Great stuff. Thanks, DdlR.

    I'd love to see similar detail in reconstructions of Classical Athenian gymnasia. (Your great-great-great-....great-great-grand-pappy's gym.)

    Obviously the Greek gymnasiums were more general educational institutions. Nonetheless, their level of physical culture was quite high.

    And, given the Greek influence on Galen, it'd be interesting to see what exercises they did. Presumably you could pull references from Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic texts - literary, political and medical.

    Anyone have any data on this? (And I don't mean the recent trireme studies.) I suspect there's a great deal written on their sport in general, but not on their training regimes.

    134 year old gym discovered in Illinois

    The Hegeler Carus mansion (LaSalle, Illinois) includes an original gym built in the year 1876. It was basically untouched throughout the 20th century and still contains a great deal of antique exercise equipment (climbing poles, "Roman rings", Indian clubs etc.)

    There is now a project on to restore the Hegeler Carus gym as a "living museum" of 19th century physical culture, including demonstrations and practical classes. There's a PDF of the work in progress at
