Take the ancient cow lifting pill

There is a saying that goes back to Milo of Croton: lift a calf everyday and when you grow up, you can lift a cow. The story goes that Milo, a famous wrestler in ancient Greece, gained his immense strength by lifting a newborn calf one day when he was a boy, and then lifting it every day as it grew

      Is this assuming the cows aren’t being pumped with steroids to rapidly inflate size?

            >heifer
            >The female is first a heifer calf, growing into a heifer and becoming a cow. Depending on the breed, mature bulls weigh 450–1,800 kg (1,000–4,000 pounds) and cows 360–1,100 kg (800–2,400 pounds).
            I would say it still weighs 400-650 pounds. I wonder how many people ITT can lift and walk with that much on their back

    OP here I think this might have actual viability considering how effective progressive overload is

    the calf will grow more quickly than your body can adapt to the load. it would be like pyramiding up from the bar to 4pl8 on bench going up 5lbs every day. It will be too easy and the transition to too hard will be too quick to adjust to or else people would be benching 4pl8 as beginners.
    Principally it makes sense, it's just progressive overload, but it's too poorly modulated to actually work

        No, but others have. You're welcome to try it, but it doesn't work.

                I don't have a cow nor any place for a cow. You are the one who made the original claim, which is a positive claim, so you demonstrate it.

                I know it works, but you challenged my claim so you must show evidence

                You don't actually know that, your basis for the claim is a literal myth. Never been replicated. Just think about it rationally; there is nothing mechanically unique about a cow or ox that would enable progressive overload to that extent of that sort of movement pattern. In fact the weight distribution is much worse than a barbell lol

                It’s been passed down for generations as a scientific article so I know it to be true. Yet you cannot find a way to prove me wrong

    So I actually have kids (shocking I know, but yes, I have done the sex) and the number of dads that won't pick up their kids after about age 5 is hilarious. My oldest is about 100lbs and I still make sure I toss her around once in a while.

    My great grandmother owned a pig ranch and she could tie a grown pig
    her brother could lift a donkey over his head on a dare
    too bad my family is so modernized now

    Have you ever seen a powerlifter lift a cow?
    No?
    Do powerlifters do everything they can to get big?
    Has no powerlifter heard this story?
    OR
    Is this story, maybe, just a story?

      How many people do you know grow up alongside non steroid injected cows?
      No one?
      Does the average power shitter own a cow or lift heavy animals?
      No?
