“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”Socrates
In other words, that which was beautiful to our ancestors 3,000 years ago was also likely beautiful to our ancestors 300,000 years ago.
