Do you think some ancient dude took a stick and rocks together to make a bar and weights? Who invented weight lifting/exercises? Obviously there’s Spartan culture and fighting and aggression but who was the 1st man or woman to say “I’m out of fucking shape!” and they played some ancient version of Rocky music.
I think some dude was almost eaten by an animal and said “No more of this shit!” and invented weights. Maybe people used the carcass of animals. Like the bones and shit to make weights.
