No kidding, Jerry. The most in-shape men I've ever seen were not in a weight room, but in the bean fields of western Crete. You understand why when you try to do their work. Muscles which have never even announced themselves to you with a whisper suddenly scream and die. It makes you realize what an amazing physical specimen Leadbelly must have been, if he was able to pick even half of the 1000 lbs of cotton a day which have been attributed to him.
