4th century AD Antient Sports by Girls in Bikini, Villa del Casale

Yup, that’s exactly what they were doing 1,700 years ago. Working out with dumb bells and medicine balls.

And this awesome description from wikimedia:
  • The famous "bikini girls" mosaic, found by archaeological excavation of the ancient Roman villa del Casale near Piazza Armerina in Sicily. This shows women exercising, running, or receiving the palm of victory and wreath (for winning an athletic competition). Note that the bikinis are shown as sportswear (workout gear and outfits for athletic competition), not swimwear...
I bet they sure have a source of where it says that they did not swim in these as well... Sure they do, lol.

4th century AD? I think we are talking about the period preceding our Dark Ages period. Right before the “rediscovery” of Americas, whenever that really happened.
