Memes aside, Hemminway was a total alpha Chad.

>Louis Cyr (French pronunciation: [lwi siʁ]; born Cyprien-Noé Cyr, 10 October 1863 – 10 November 1912) was a famous French Canadian strongman with a career spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His recorded feats, including lifting 500 pounds (227 kg) with one finger and backlifting 4,337 pounds (1,967 kg), show Cyr to be, according to former International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness chairman Ben Weider, the strongest man ever to have lived.

Byron if we are talking about unacknowledged homosexuality.

come back to this board when you learn how to read, plebe

This guy walks into your library and slaps that book out of your hands. What do you do?


He killed himself though




Not really. He was a depressed fuck who was trying his hardest to keep up some kind of masculine faccade, similar to Jack London.

The motherfucker still hunted lions on a weekly basis. If that doesn't spell alpha I don't know what does

he was too alpha to die by any others hand

Hercules was the classic Veeky Forumsizen. He just lifted heavy shit and literally didn't give a fuck. He wasn't very Veeky Forums as a person, but his myth has become ubiquitous cultural intertext, which is pretty Veeky Forums.


The only correct answer

I don't know if I'd say he was number 1 of all time, but so far as the twentieth century goes, Teddy Roosevelt.


Serious case of gay face in that photo.

>He killed himself though
Escaping this mortal abyss only further proves his enlightenment.

if by Veeky Forums you mean delusional manlet, then yes

How do you mean "gay" here? The man was, in fact, a homosexual.

Came here to post this.
Guy was beast, 24+hours riding bouts ranching, climbing, hunting, 10+ books published, some of which are still standards in their field today, political career no need to talk about, I'm not even American but this guy is as inspiring as it gets.

>Santiago Ramón y Cajal was a Spanish pathologist, histologist, neuroscientist, and Nobel laureate. His original pioneering investigations of the microscopic structure of the brain have led to his being designated by many as the father of modern neuroscience

Clearly this.

Plato was apparently an Olympic standard wrestler in his youth. All the Greek philosophers were fit.

despite how much Veeky Forums memes about David Foster Wallace, i really think he was an excellent guy. Went through school playing tennis upto state-level, then he realised he couldn't keep up with the other people who practiced 10 hours daily, so he took up literature as a career and wrote the some unquestionably great books. I admire him a lot

Alan Turing

He often skipped leg day.

Byron was fit as fuck. You can still swim the Hellespont like him or Leander, but the race is only once a year and it's time limited because if you're not out of the water in time, they just leave the tanker ships back on route.

Nice turn
