Apparently not. It looks like they were flabby and flatulent.

Sorry, even NFL players don't always have 6 pack abs….

I'm a gladiator. Who knew?

While not buff, I imagine they were pretty fit.

Whatever the case may have been they were tough, sneaky, and deadly fighters. With the possible exception of Emperor Commodus who made sure his opponents had been drugged, mutilated, or otherwise rendered incapable before he entered the arena.

I guess I'm a gladiator then….I'm Spartacus!

I'm Spartacus!

No I am Spartacus

If everyone is thinking that they are Spartacus, I'll be Fred. Fred the gladiator…unlike Spartacus, you never hear about anything bad happening to Fred.
Just sayin'😉

Fred…..That is why nobody will remember your name.

cavcrazy30 Sep 2021 9:23 a.m. PST

And Fred survived…. wasn't much of a gladiator anyway. The whole net and trident thing never made much sense.🤔

Didn't Spartacus get turned into a candle wick? While nowt happened to Fred?

Actually the layer of fat protected the gladiators from deeper wounds. But underneath that were muscles; Lots of them!
