They had originally pumped their bodies that way to protect themselves from the menace of the ancient titans and their leader Lum Bar. After making a union with elves, they managed to defeat Lum Bar, bend him over and turn him into stone. Since then the grotesque statue has been the symbol of their victory, while elves are still their best buddies to this day.
Elves are the most common companions of barbarians, as elves generally have a big fetish for big muscles. Some of them even try to build their own bodies the barbarian way, but most just enjoy holding their bodies against those hard big curves.
But elves and barbarians have a mutual influence and, following the elves' wisdom, all younger barbarians today practice contortion to make their muscles very resilient before starting to make them strong, and this is how they achieve the best results in bodybuilding later.
But the main secret of barbarians is the incense called "Relief", a sophisticated mixture of painkillers and energizers that's not harmful for health but makes the most difficult exercises smooth and painless, allowing to take one's physical abilities beyond all extremes.
