⭕ Want to get a fighting machine "a la Romana"?
🔹 The Roman army was recognized as an extremely effective fighting machine. They were trained to fight in a disciplined and co-ordinated manner. Training was brutal and tough but it paid huge dividends for the Romans.
🔹 What did Roman soldiers eat?
Their diet was mostly grain (wheat, barely, oats, spelt and rye). They were supposed to dislike meat, so too they were to detest beer, considering it far inferior to their native Roman wine.
🔹 How did they exercise?
It was seen as of greatest importance to the Roman Army that its soldiers could march at speed. The Roman soldier was trained to march in line and to keep the army a compact fighting unit on the move. During summer months, the soldiers used to march twenty Roman miles (30 km) in five hours. A further part of military training was physical exercise: running, long and high jumps and carrying heavy packs. During summer, swimming was also a part of training.
