    none, all you see in pictures like that is fiction. Romans were fit by military standards, aka very basic strength and lots of cardio and long marches, and so long were some marches that their cortisol was 24/7 year round. This means no muscle and is the reason hardcore runners have no muscle. They were also very short, mostly due to nutritional issues that plagued the era

      Mostly true maybe, but the difference between them and modern soldiers is that most of them used melee weapons regularly. Strength doesn't matter much when you're using a gun, but it's very important for their kind of warfare. Even using a bow requires a lot of strength. They also worked as construction workers during times of peace, building roads and shit like that.

          I'm pretty sure the soldiers themselves built a great many of the roads as well as various fortifications, bridge works. Alot of digging and lumber.

          Reading Caesar's works, it is safe to say part of the reason the Romans were so successful is that their soldiers were such good builders and engineers.

          Caesar's go to strategy was building fortifications and bridging structures. The only real major battle Caesar lost hardcore was because Pompey successfully "out-walled" him (and despite Pompey having the reputation as an idiot, he was the only one I can think of (including Labienus) who was smart enough to take this approach. Step one to defeating the Romans would have been to outbuild them or at least- not allow them to be in positions where they were free to use various building/engineering solutions to their advantage.

          >hellenism
          >Roman
          Hellenes were Greeks you fucking retard. Hellenism is the Greek religion.

          Not that anon but depending on the era it would not be totallywrong to label the Romans as "hellenistic." I'm sure people like Cato the Retard would have cringed at this but it is nonetheless true I believe.

      >no muscle
      Not quite true cause along their long marches they also had to carry their own armor/weapons/silverware/pots/tents/sleeping bags/etc. ,at least 100-120 pounds of weight.
      In addition, in order to become a legionnaire you had to have athletic build, healthy, and be tall (for the Roman standards of course)

      In general , ancient warriors were more muscular cause they had to swing a heavy weapon for hours and then go home and do farming or hunting.

        I remember reading accounts of English longbowmen who could hit birds at maximum range. They trained with a longbow after a day of working the field at the behest of their ruling noble and if they did not, or were bad at it then it was basically treason.
        I used to think a life like that would have been hell but seeing what modern man has become, it was all probably for our own good.

          Latin's really not required for law. It's helpful because the legal rules often use latin, but if you have a college level english vocabulary most of it shouldn't be a problem. You can figure out what most of it means since 40% of english is derived directly from french. And if you can't that's fine, you just learn the word and move on.

    Romans conquered what they did through organization and structure. Their soldier where able to walk dozens of miles with 45+lbs of gear and survived off of grains, wild game, local veggies, fruit, fish, wine, and garum. They drilled combat frequently and did mock battles. They carried heavy square shield, a pilum and a gladius as their main weapons which they were all able to use efficiently and in battle for extended periods of time. Veterans had amazing accuracy and power when throwing their pila and could kill horses with them.

        Don't remember the details, if you want more info, you should read stuff from Vegetius and Polybius, the former was writing about late republic/early empire, the latter about mid-republic, if I remember correctly (I could've mixed shit up tho).
        Anyway, they would do long marches with full equipment (a few miles a day at least, but keep in mind that Vegetius and others were talking about roman miles, not modern miles), they would fight dummies and do sparring with heavier replicas of their actual weapons (although people argue if it was really the case, and they didn't just wrap their weapons with leather/cloth and train with those), do military drills (which was called armatura), swim, do calisthenics, etc. Strong and well-built recruits were picked to focus on bow training.
        Tbqh, roman training was more about endurance than anything else, you were doing something half the day, fueled by just a bunch of grains, some meat, wine and the glory of Rome.

          I read a roman military quote one time, but I forget who said it, that was basically along the lines of
          >with new recruits, you should march them till they pass out and them some more.

          And yes we can assume it was pretty brutal, alot of marching, digging, hauling
          lumber rocks etc. Also things were just pretty harsh- see decimation etc. all that stuff, but alot of times you also hear about commanders being pretty humane to troops. Idk if it was out of necessity, fear of mutiny, etc. But with Caesar specifically, there are episodes in the Gallic Wars where he had really fresh recruits and even though he needed all the numbers he could get, he let them hang back even in important battles instead of sending them to get slaughtered.

            Didn't come across that quote, I guess it would depend on the time in history, but I doubt it would be true for the legions of the Republic, they were notoriously lazy even during and after the times of Marius's reforms. AFAIK troops during the Empire had their shit pushed in harder.
            But if I remember correctly, recruits were pushed especially hard to weed out weak and unorderly men.

            >Also things were just pretty harsh- see decimation
            I was researching decimation for a paper and it wasn't practiced that often, from sources it seems that at the time of the mid-Republic it was rare as fuck, and it was used mostly as a last resort to make everyone realise how much they fucked up and how serious the situation was.
            From what I know, soldiers were mostly punished by, for example, beatings, giving them barley instead of wheat or just reducing their wages.

            >he had really fresh recruits and even though he needed all the numbers he could get, he let them hang back even in important battles instead of sending them to get slaughtered
            Caesar was known to value every soldier on the field, that's why his version of decimation was much lighter (if it happened at all), since he decimated only around 12 legionairies for mutiny from his whole legion. It was a numbers game for him.
            Also Caesar behaved like a brainlet sometimes, but at the same time he was playing 4d chess with his own troops, like that one time his legion had demands and threatened to leave him, so he went "oh, so you only want money after all we've been through together, okay, then you can go home and that's that", and they actually begged him to stay lmao.
            If you want to read about generals being absolute cunts, read about Crassus's legion, AFAIK he decimated his own troops twice and treated them like an investment (because they honestly were, he raised the whole legion from his own money).

    First step is you need to join the army and go on campaign.

    Second step is learning to hunt and forage while on campaign.

    Third is to carry 20 men's wine rations for strength. Wine rations are 3 liters per day, you get some too. You need this for strength.

    Fourth is to socialmax Roman style, it lead to low levels of depression and therefore high test and high HGH. That means you'll be shitting here with your bros from now on. Now pass the xylospongium.

    Wake up at 5:00 or 4:00. Romans woke up just before the sunrise.
    Walk all day wearing weights.
    Dig holes like romans did to gather water and build their camps.
    Train with spear and sword. Maybe you could join a HEMA or Kung Fu school where they have actual spears (not those waivy shitty plastic ones).
    Learn latin to LARP effectively.
    Wear blue, red or purple if you feel imperial only.
    Eat only fish, beef, grains. Maybe bread.
    Never eat barley since it was shameful for them, even though it has lots of fiber.
    Pick up a fight on March, the month of Mars when they went to war. Just fight against some moron or a wigger. If you can't win then don't even fight. Romans always win.
    If you want to actually behave as a roman then you could learn to ride a horse, like the Equites did. They were high class though, so if you aren't stick to walking all day.
    Read stoic texts.
    Convert to catholicism since it's ROMAN Catholic Church.

        By that logic the Roman pantheon was not Roman either, it incorporated gods from every land they conquered. And those religions themselves were not native to Europe, they came from the indo-aryan peoples when they traveled north from around west asia and india. Once you start reading about world religions it's very easy to see how the Hindu god Indra became the Nordic god Thor became the Greek god Zeus became the Roman god Jupiter.

In Germanic languages we still have a day named after him, Thursday. In latin languages the same day is named after Jupiter, in italian its Jovedi. Now if you look at aryan migration patterns it should be obvious where those gods came from, that was around west Asia. The same aryans went to india and started an entire civilization and religious system there, and from there to the north in eastern Europe and Scandinavia.

                I'll post aryan migration patterns for you next. All the european gods either likely derived from hinduism when the aryans founded it, or hinduism comes from the same place the european ones did.

          In the time of the Republic, there was significant resistance to the introduction of new gods into the pantheon. But anyhow, the real issue is about values: The original Roman cult upheld and deified traiditonal Roman virtues like pride, perseverance, and liberty, while Christianity demand total subservience to an almighty king-god and goes against everything the Republic stood for. So no, it's not Roman.

              True there may have still been hope under Caesar of the Republic surviving- but make no mistake, the Reublic had become a hopeless shit show which had long out lived its virtues- people had become cynical about it and rightly so.

              I personally believe things would have been much better had Caesar not been assassinated and he had 10-20 years years Octavia consildate shit after the Civil War. Also had Pompey not been killed by the retarded Egyptians Caesar would have brought him back into the fold and you would have potentially had a fairly stable political situation at that point. Had Pompey survived and bent the knee to Caesar, and joined him, it would have been an almost fatal blow to the Cato/Cicero resistance.

              Anyways- Octavian and Antony were fucking mongs compared to Caesar. Octavian only got the job from riding Caesar's coattails and being blessed with Aggripa as his commander. He was far less balanced, dignified, capable, and wise than Caesar was. Had Caesar lived his leadership would have imho resulted in the survival of the republic, even if in some nominal capacity, as well as better real outcomes for the empire.

              Also I have no delusions that Caesar wanted to be king de facto or otherwise. But he was too balanced and collected to go full retard like Antony or Octavian.

                I'm 100% a Caesarian so I think so, but I also agree it's highly debated whether or not he would have ever given up dictatorial powers and whether or not he really was trying to fix the republic and the senate was just being a bunch of morones and snakes.
                >Octavian and Antony were fucking mongs compared to Caesar.
                I mostly agree. Octavian had a really good level of political prowess, even though being given Caesar's name and title was a large advantage he couldn't have done anything significant with it if he was totally retarded, he did manage to become first emperor after all.
                >Also I have no delusions that Caesar wanted to be king de facto or otherwise
                Idk, I think maybe he was really trying to fix shit and didn't have any other means to do so. Look at his childhood, he was very familiar with political corruption from an early age, got fucked bad and lost all the privileges of nobility. I think he had a much grander goal for Rome than just to be a tyrannical ruler.

                I think when you read Caesar's story and then bookend it with the octavian era, it is overwhelming how inferior Octavian was to Caesar in temperament, dignity, and just general competence. The moment Caesar dies in history and you see the clown show of Antony and Octavian- you immediately miss Caesar's competence and balance as a leader. Often times people take for granted just how smooth Caesar was. I think Octavian was very lucky and I would not call him a fool or anything (obviously he had political prowess) but next to Caesar- yes he was a clown in my opinion.

                Also I too would consider myself a "Caesarist" but I on the other hand disagree about him trying to save the republic based on ideological grounds. He wanted to be king and would have essentially acted as one. But in my view- he deserved to be the big cheese and in his mind, the republic had become inseparable from Rome and he would have to work around it to be king. He would have to keep the senate in existence and out of political necessity he would have to pay it a certain nominal respect to maintain his reign.

                Yes, and my personal theory is the US is fixing to become the same way. Republicanism is about to fall and the people will beg for a leader, and neo-autocracy will be born. US going to say fuck it and become a straight empire.

        Catholicism is as I said. It was founded in Rome. Alternatively you could become a roman pagan, but seems kind of cringy if you don't actually sacrifice animals.
        >Also I don't like stoicism since I am not a catamite
        Kek. Accurate since it was a thing for high class romans, not your average soldier/leggionaire.

        You have to BUILD BRIDGES. Build EVERY fucking BRIDGE you can. Is there a bridge on that river already? TOO BAD. You need to evade the enemy so you're building ANOTHER BRIDGE about 2 kilometers away.

        Also this. Roads and bridges.

          >Catholicism was founded in Rome
          Catholicism was founded in Asia Minor where Paulus resided for most of his time.
          >Animal sacrifice
          Most Roman farmers were too poor to actually sacrifice animals on a regular basis, which wasn't a problem since the public cult did it for them. So no sacrificing animals in private worship would be fine.

    Interestingly romans mainly did what we today might describe as weighted cardio. After the military reforms of Gaius Marius roman soldiers were marching with 80-90 lbs. of equipment earning them the nickname mules of Marius (muli Mariani). If you read Caesar many of his victories are won by long marches and countermarches effectively getting into a better position than his enemies. The other main way Caesar won battles was through sieges which included a lot of digging and building of walls and various siege engines. The diet of the average roman soldier largely consisted of grains. This was not for nutritional reasons but because it allowed to supply the battlefront most easily.
    A workout routine for the roman soldier would consist of several hours of weighted marching, hours of manual labor all on a diet of mostly grains. Good luck with your fitness Journey!

    Work on a farm half the year and March and build forts for the other half if we’re talking pre-standing legions. I’m sure some later imperial soldiers exercised and trained in some capacity as Greeks did and a lot of Roman authors I’ve read discuss the benefits of exercise on the mind. Wrestling was also a popular sport that soldiers would have taken part in. Googling historical Roman legionary exercise routine or some shit might get some results on niche history YouTubers or something like that.

    >posts a pic of literal fiction
    Soldiers of the past looked liked soldiers of the present, they were accustomed to walking for a very long time. They wore armor and had to carry packs, but most roman soldiers weren't walking around clad in full medieval heavy armor. They didn't look like bodybuilders, no soldiers in any time have ever looked like pic related. Even spartans were toned and lean, and did mostly calisthenics. You're brain is warped by modern decadence, where "men" blast roids and lift weights all day. Real soldiers don't look like that and never have.

      Must've been some soldiers though who were born particularly gifted for SIZE and capitalized on it through strength training (look me lift heavy rock over head) because they were good at it, a positive feedback loop that made the biggest meanest fuckers around who were terrifying to meet in melee

        Of course you had certified big lads, but I can guarantee they were not like any of those drawings, they were probably like a natty 6’4” lad who lifts big. A good example would probably be like zack telander, tall, strong, trains fighting, but far from what these modern dyels that draw based off movies and comic books

        Correct, but this wouldn't be the average soldier, and even the exceptionally gifted ones would look like your picrel, and not OP
        s picrel. The roided mofos of current year are the most muscular dudes to ever walk the earth, at least since we were more ape-like.

          Obviously they're not gonna be the average soldier nor as muscular, at least defined, as OP's pic but that's what makes them the exception. Guys born well over 6'0 tall who had a lot of food and strenuous exercise. I couldn't imagine a pre-medieval soldier who thought the raiding northerners were giants of legend.

      This part I disagree with. Soldiers in current year look borderline retarded at worst, and at best like some rag tag coalition put together by randomly selecting members of anime clubs.

      Roman soldiers- just by very virtue of their daily routines and the necessities of life at the time were much much harder than the average modern soldier I suspect. And yes they probably weren't as fat as modern soldiers. But yeah I agree they didn't look like OP pic although I am open to the idea that they could have been in pretty decent shape.

    So my 7 year old brought home a book in think you'd like. It's called Ranger in Time and it's about a time traveling dog that goes to ancient Rome to help out some gladiators. I really think it's up your alley. You don't really have to read the first one about the Oregon Trail to get what's going on.
