Pics of some true hunter-gatherers?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Anybody have any links to pics of some ripped muscular hunter-gatherers? True hunter-gatherers that are not living in an industrial part of the world? There's one picture specifically I've seen where there are 3 men probably in their 60's who look almost like lightweight boxers.

How do we know there weren't such freaks of nature in paleolithic societies? It's probably very hard to determine muscle mass from skeletons alone. Neanderthals apparently were more muscular, so they could have very well been big. Also, Brock is an outlier far out at the edges of the bell curve, so hardly a good comparison to any population.

Selective breeding via wars? Also native/south americans traveled through europe, cold, etc before the Americas. Maybe that had something to do with it?

I think it's interesting how almost all photos of hunter-gatherers except for the aboriginal australians look like ectomorphs, especially the native americans/south americans. I wonder if the big/powerful endomorph developed in agricultural society. And before everyone jumps in and says "its just diet bro" look up someone like Brock Lesnar who was deadlifting 720 lbs in his early 20s. Thats guy is a viking. I dont see any hunter-gatherers sitting around 6'3 300 lbs of muscle. Even if that dude was 100% clean he'd still be waaaaay more massive then any hunter-gatherer pic Ive ever seen.

If that is a cat slung over his shoulder I want to come to his campfire.
