Squats and milk are not the way.

Resistance training has it's place, and it is preparatory to bone conditioning, as if you are weak, you'll take shock wrong.

The gladiators were vegetarian, and their bones were beastly, and it was because the relevant micronutrient is strontium, not calcium. Casein is not exactly the greatest protein for humans, either.

Salad then cardio then landing drills then hypertrophy exercises then fish? Mmm, mmm, good.

Oscar, your right. Trust me, I'm definately keeping an eye on it to keep it civil when the reactions start coming in.

Could you perhaps suggest a link to a source for a good strontium supplement? And maybe for a better protein than casein? We'd all be soooo grateful.

Now that you've racked up 5 posts, you can post links. Just sayin'.

Could you provide some empirical evidence to back up these assertions?

Green diet

The researchers expected gladiators would need a protein-rich diet to build muscle - however their analysis of the bones in fact suggested a vegetarian diet.

Plants contain higher levels of the element strontium than animal tissues. So, people who consume more plants and less meat will build up measurably higher levels of strontium in their bones. Levels of strontium in the gladiators' bones were two times higher than the bones of contemporary Ephesians, according to research presented by Kanz and Grossschmidt at a meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists in Philadelphia, U.S., in April this year.

This agrees with some historical reports of gladiators eating a diet of mainly barley, beans and dried fruit, says Grossschmidt.

It would have given them a lot of strength, but may also have contributed to the tooth decay found in teeth in the cemetery and potentially made the men fat. However, a little extra weight could actually have had benefits in protecting vital organs from cutting blows during fights, argue the researchers.

Grossschmidt says that the gladiators also drank foul-sounding plant or bone ash solutions, acting as a kind of ancient isotonic sports drink. The mineral-rich drink may even have been a kind primitive painkiller, he says.


Just because gladiators did it, doesn't mean it's a good idea.
