Life in the East has always been tougher, so the people are tougher. Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia of course - we all have been through communism and, despite all the wrong that it has done to societies (damage we might never fully recover from), it has done some good to people's physical condition and what we consider toughness.    
   
I mean, to graduate from Russian middle school, one must pull himself up 12 times. Is it common in the West? I don't think so. Modern word neglected strength as a form of beauty. In exchange, we got genderless hipsters, bulked-up bodybuilders, who forgot how to move their own bodies, and a small group of professional sportsmen and women, who (if they reflect sometimes on it) weep about the others.   
   
Ancient Greek, who build the basics of European culture admired physical ability on par with knowledge and wisdom. The name Plato means "broad shouldered" and the great philosopher himself was a wrestler (I don't know if pankrationist is a word).   
Why did we abandoned our bodies for extremes, whatever happened to the Golden Middle?   
   
TL;DR modern world pussificates people
