Welcome to the Site!

This welcome updated 27th August 2020: New Blog posts (immediately below this) almost daily! Separate pages (index above) also regularly updated

Tony Cavanagh welcomes you to what started as a blog to promote books but has morphed into a multi-page experience celebrating first and foremost male fitness and his favourite sports – weight training, acrobatics, gymnastics, wrestling… secondly identifying with the gay community and ‘gently’ supporting gay love and relationships… and finally, in a lower-key way now, his trio of books covering all that stuff plus a more recent novel.

Thus, the pages here celebrate the male body image and physical achievement – but this is not a porn site and, if  that is what you are seeking, please look elsewhere.

Please do go to the index at the top of this page and begin your exploration!

This pic kind of wraps everything up together!

AS THE PUBLISHER OF THE FIRST THREE BOOKS WENT BANKRUPT IN 2018, THEY ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE VIA THE LINKS I HAVE FREQUENTLY POSTED IN THIS BLOG, AND I AM IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO FIND AND DELETE THE LAST OF THOSE LINKS. EQUALLY, BOOK FOUR IS NOW REMAINDERED. HOWEVER, THEY ARE ALL STILL AVAILABLE – FROM ME. PLEASE DO CONTACT ME AT gymacrobat@gmail.com IN THE FIRST INSTANCE AS SALES WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE BLOG.

And now: Welcome Aboard! Feel free to comment, especially on the blog posts, or contact me directly on all male physical fitness themes, at gymacrobat@gmail.com

Here is a video of the sort of stuff we love, and then a few thumbnail examples of the images we like to share here, to get you started. Pretty much all images on this site will enlarge if clicked.

Get the idea? Come on in!

Postscript: If any picture was not intended for free re-post by the photographer, I will at once apologise and take it down. I do not knowingly post under-age pictures unless there are special circumstances which justify it, such as excellence in sporting achievement by The Younger Generation on that page. And, yes, I do occasionally include images of ourselves: you just need to decide for yourselves which they are! Hope that clears things up…?

Let’s Face It…

Today’s pix are chosen for body image, as usual. But each face has a story to tell, or a message to convey… even though it is not always obvious what the message is. See what you think of this selection, starting with a rather enigmatic expression:

Next guy adds a stance to his facial expression… ‘don’t mess with me, I’m pretty tough.’ He is, too, especially through the angle of the shot.

‘Was there something?’

‘Well? How have I done?’

Looking down is rather a popular position when you have good abs!

‘Yeah, I know. They need ot be a bit tighter.’

A little ‘aloof’, I think:

Anxious?

‘Well, I’m pretty satisfied with this!’

‘Oooh – they are pretty good, aren’t they!’

‘I’m not sure I like you looking…’

‘Actually, I’m a bit tired right now’

‘Do I look fierce?’

‘Yeah!!’

‘Oh shit, I forgot…’

‘Stop arseing around with that camera. I’m ready for my swim.’

‘Surely I got a better score than that?’

‘Does this show me off at my best?’ (well, it would if he moved the phone a bit)

3 faces to interpret here: not sure what is going on actually!

‘If you don’t like it, tough.’

‘Yes! The bicep! Check the bicep!’

‘Those pull-ups were tough!’

‘Yes, I’m bigger than you, so there!’

‘Wadd’ya think?’

‘Not bad, am I?’

The smug “I know I’ve done well, and I’m proud of it!” And, in this case, well deserved!

Happy street workout dude

‘Are you wasting my workout time?’

‘Make me look my best, Mr Photographer.’

‘I’m knackered. Get on with it.’

‘OK?’

‘I need a good selfie of my chest for my bf/gf’

‘I need to train harder..’

‘Caught you lookin’!’

‘Now, look here, stop pissing me off…’ (A bit of aggro? Maybe staged?)

‘I’m sad today.’

Men at Work…

Making use of a partner…

Mass efforts (at the famous LaSierra High School in California):

Easing out the pain…

Doing it for yourself…

Looks a bit tired?

Not all fitness work has to be in a gym:

Another kind of work…

…but all good for making use of your fitness and topping up the Vitamin D!

It’s Your Choice! Who to Wrestle?

Time for a little fun. Today we invite you to make your choice of the ideal ‘opponent’ for a little shirtless, barefoot wrestling. OK, maybe even less… or oiled up…

We may reveal our own choices later, but certainly this first guy looks quite a possibility…

…do you go for body image, obvious strength, slim or chunky, or just a ‘winning’ smile?

In case you get lost, the numbers refer to the picture BELOW.

Or just lurk, and image the experience!

It has just struck me that there are no hairy guys here, which might be your preference. Maybe next time…

Time to Share

Three? Or maybe two and a mirror?

Either which way, the gay tenderness page CARING AND SHARING has just been updated! Two more tasty tasters for you:

Go to the page for hundreds more!

The rest of today’s post show other guys with time to share, starting with two line-ups which include younger ‘bros’… hopefully encouraging fitness in them too…

…our THE YOUNGER GENERATION page is dedicated to the younger fitness enthusiasts.

As to the rest of today’s guys, they’re just sharing the fun in various ways. Enjoy.

The morning after?

And then, to end with , the naughty one…

Action Men

We’ve seen both of those guys in action before – they know how rewarding a determined effort can be. Enjoy the rest of today’s ‘action men’!

Lots more new wrestling pictures will be uploaded to WRESTLING GALLERY #3 later today!!

Some young action men there (posture, lads!!). I’ll be updating THE YOUNGER GENERATION page later today with plenty of like-minded young fitness dudes. It’s never too young to start a fitness regime (nor too old, either).

Culture Club

In olden times it was called ‘Physical Culture’. Some are bodybuilding just for the sake of it, but most are doing what they need to do for fitness and to support specific sports. That’s OUR ‘Culture Club’!

“Nice Bodywork, Clean Lines…”

“…good runner!”

Well, these lads are in great shape, for sure. Wheels, or no wheels!

‘Flagrantly Shirtless…’

Here in the Algarve there is such a large British population that we get all the newspapers and their supplements in full. The title quote comes from a piece by Times columnist Robert Carmpton, writing about his son during lockdown “…training in the front garden, flagrantly shirtless, to the delight of passers by!”

And why not? His son is apparently very fit and enjoys wrestling.

I guess ‘flagrantly’ means guys who have pulled their tops off, usually outside, where many perhaps wouldn’t, so rules out Speedo guys on the beach and so forth (but we’ll allow the next pic)… so that sets today’s criterion!

Here are some more ‘flagrantly shirtless’ boys with something to show us and for you to enjoy!

Yep, technically he IS shirtless!

Just Lift SOMETHING…

…even your own weight (or someone else’s) will do! Every muscle movement helps. For example:

Yep. Four of the same guy. So what?

If it makes you sweat, so much the better!

A little friendly envouragement.

Pity about the shirt

That’s “Andrey Muscle”, YouTube star. So is this:

Some combination going on there

Someone there took my blog title literally

Yes, your own legs count

Bet you didn’t expect that one!

Sorry. I do try to avoid harvesting those ‘stock photos’, but image searches seem to be loaded with them these days

As long as James is doing inverted ab cruches, he’s in this set

No use just thinking about it!

And finally…

…hope that one gets past the Tumblr bots in the re-post!

Stop! Look! Listen…?

Stop! New updates at Gymnasts Gallery #2 and Handstand Central Gallery #2!

He also wants you to stop – to take a LOOK at some of the great guys in this post! And then move on to all the other pages on this site showcasing fit young men enjoying their lives. That’s why we’re here. Here’s couple more teasers from those updates:

As for the LISTEN bit, well, not so sure! There are a videos with sound here and there on the site, but it’s all mainly a feast for the eyes. Enjoy the rest on this post – guys proud of what they’ve achieved in the gym:

OK, you’ve stopped and seen the achievers. Time to take stock of where YOU are… it is never too old to get fitter (and, within reason, never too young either… I shall be updated The Younger Generation page shortly with some amazing young sportsmen). So, LISTEN UP! Make the effort just to get started: pal up with someone with the same interests, and off you go on the road to improved fitness (and with it comes improved appearance). Of course, if you’re a gym bunny of any kind already, ‘good on you’!!
