    If you get yourself a penis pump, one day your penis might be that big. Other than that, I've no idea.

    Don't fall for the olive oil meme, don't eat bread unless you're a pleb, don't eat beans unless you're a slave. Eat plenty of meat and small fishes, do calisthenics+kettleblell.
    Raw milk is fine to bulk (raw goat milk even better), yogurt if you can't find any. Maybe some bread, but not too much. Use enough salt.

    Lift weights.

    Around 2 years if you start out skinny.
    >What should I incorporate/avoid?
    Don't go crazy on one bodypart, focus on symmetry above all else. Your torso is the most important area. Follow their (ruling class) diet if you can, all kinds of meat, fish, a lot of dairy, olive oil, legumes, fruits and nuts, vegetables, beans, barley, bread.

      I'm really mirin' anon, both for physique and using one of my favorite statues of all time. Excellent taste. It may have actually been a Roman general according to some scholars but who cares.

        I'd say you already made it, they aren't huge.

        https://i.imgur.com/RqNZrVG.jpg

        Out of the shower unpumped. Not my biggest here, probably like 170, but I've been close to 200 for short bits.

        Probably was lifting for 8 years before I was first about this size and leaness. But I don't think it would have taken near as long if it was my goal. First, I started at 15 so my first few years were not very structured. I also didn't try to put on weight, or even cut at times for sports (climbing, martial arts, mountaineering). I also lost weight really quickly when I had guide jobs. The biggest thing I found is that it's much easier to gain mass back then to gain it the first time.

        My routine has been the same for a while now. One day of heavy pull ups and dips with accessories, one day of incline DB press and DB rows.

        I used to have two leg days, trap bar dead and split squats, but I've had a lot of back injuries so now I just do split squats and leg curls. I could dead a lot a long time ago but paid a cost.

        For accessories I do machine OHP (shoulder joint is already stressed enough from dips up to 225 added, so no DBs), shrugs, ring work for abs, levers, etc., trap bar carried, curls, and tricep extensions with DBs.

        I can maintain this year round but not my strength. Since I had kids my PRs don't come any more, but I'm also old. I was dipping 225 and doing pull ups with 90-125, now I do 180 and 65 for the most part. I do a lot of drop sets.

        To stay lean running every morning helped. Now I run after I lift due to commitments. I'd say consistency is number one, clean diet number two. I was vegan a long time and don't eat much meat now though, so I never found that to be a huge deal.

        Forgot to add that if you think this is too small, then it might be significantly harder to hit what you want. I can maintain this ok with just a clean diet, but to get another 20lbs and keep it required eating a disgusting amount, but being lean meant all that food was lentils, turnips, sardines, oats... Eating a lot of calories of healthy food gets to be a struggle.

      This is a great example of the only thing I don't like about the greek ideal. The blocky torso and overdeveloped obliques are functional and all that jazz but I think something like pic related has a more appealing V taper shape in its focus on lats and biceps

    1. Take roids, but not a lot
    2. Don't be fat
    3. Once you have just enough mass cut down pretty aggressively. It's ok to lose some mass doing this because your ideal is not body-builder huge, just well proportioned
    4. Pay very close attention to proportions, as just a slight imbalance can throw off the effect

        sorry it is, you'll never be lean enough without being skelly. You'll post some lean people but their chest and shoulders will be off.

        You'll certainly be able to PASS as a natty looking like this though.

      Obviously not everyone looked that, especially not the aristos that commissioned these pieces, but lmaoing at your life if you think that these physiques are as unobtainable as He-man's.

        They were 2500 years when people knew fuck all about diet and exercise.
        And if OPs pic was easily achievable back then, it must have been really easy for you to get that way in 2022.

            That says nothing about their quality of diet and exercise nor what their physiques looked like.

              And yeah, modern training is the best way to LOOK (not perform) like an athlete, proves yet again that simple weightlifting is the way to go if your main concern is how you look.
