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…?

Push… Pull… Twist… Whatever!

It’s all great exercise… and it WORKS! Make it fun!

Exactly!

I guess you have the idea now. Movement = improved fitness = improved and stronger muscle… especially where you add a bit of extra weight. Let’s continue with some more relevant images!

If, at the end of your session, you feel like this…

…then you’ll have done a great job!

From A Different Perspective… and Some Updates

Firstly, muscle and fitness from different points of view!

And, while we’re at it – a whole new collection of handstand photos and videos have been added to HANDSTAND CENTRAL GALLERY #2 including some ‘fun’ at the end. A couple of tasters here:

ALso, another huge update on WRESTLING GALLERY #3 from which I select just two here…

Finally, there has been a small update to GENTLY GAY … this sort of thing… just to keep ‘flying the flag’, as it were…

Hopefully y’all found something here to enjoy. Let me know if you did by leaving a comment, or if you prefer something private, email to gymacrobat@gmail.com

Body Image (5) – Bros

OK – last one in this Body Image series. Guys sharing the satisfaction – both in the workout and in the results!

Body Image (4) – In The Engine Room

The gym, obviously!

 

…can be outside, of course…

Body Image (3) – Suitable Shorts

In our day (I can’t believe I am writing that, but a lot of water has passed under our bridge since I started writing about us in the books!), dress for gym training (both calisthenics and gymnastics) was short white shorts. Just that. It’s all we wore in school PE, and its what we liked to wear after that. Hot and sweaty lads don’t need anything more.

These days, we see guys training in shorts which come down even to calf level. They’re not shorts – you may as well wear a diving suit!

So, for today’s display of fit guys, I’ve chosen ‘shorts’ as the focus, starting with the better kind! You may need to overlook a couple of ‘bulges’ – you know how it is…

And this first guy is already on the GYMNASTS GALLERY #2

These white shorts are getting a bit long now, so we’ll change color…

Body Image (2) – “We’re Fine in our Undies!”

We continue to be surprised how many lads these days seem to be happy to be in public in just their underwear for beach, swimming and even gym, and certainly with friends with cameras. Oh, and of course, locker-room selfies in the mirrors! We try to avoid obvious underwear catalogue photoshoots and porn preliminaries on this site, although we do allow a few in where the lads are paticularly good fitness ambassadors. But otherwise, including some who are obviously sitting for professional photographers in our 50 pix, here is a choice of scenes!

BTW, the gym bunnies come near the end today.

Matching socks, too! … …

 

Exercise time:

I do struggle to identify the boundary between basic undies and the new minimalist tight lycra gym wear, so maybe these ones shouldn’t be here today:

OK, a fashion shoot or two creeps in:

This final guy is definitely the ‘minimalist’…

Body Image (1) – Smugglers, and the Like

Cheerful, mostly sunny – well built lads on show for us all. We need something to brighten us all up, especially as most of Europe seems to be increasingly in a mess over Covid, determined to destroy economies and lives at the behest of medical gloominaries. Oh well.

Start with some real fun…

Whatever they’re doing, we’re in!

That too! I understand that is Fire Island, NY – something of a gay haven, they tell us.

He gets the prize for the skimpiest…

Boy on left looks really cheeky to us!

We don’t normally show bodybuilders covered in fake tan with muscles which are pretty useless for any other sport… but he’s an exception!

Leave you for today with these two… ‘just checking. OK?’…

Packin’ The Pages

I’ve updated all the active pages in the last 24 hours: some examples here…

GYMNASTS GALLERY #2CHECK!

HANDSTAND CENTRAL GALLERY #2CHECK!

WRESTLING GALLERY #3CHECK!

CARING AND SHARING #2CHECK! (That’s our gentle recognition of guys who love guys):

GENTLY GAY: CHECK! (This is where we amuse ourselves a little about the gay scene)

So there we are. Just a few of the things we like to show on this site. Of course, we’re extremely keen on general fitness, gym work and so forth, and showing off the rewards in terms of body image and capabilities: most of that ends up in these regular posts. And, to prove it, here are justa few more for you:

Of course, at the end of a sweaty workout session, it can sometimes feel like it’s all over…

…but then, when you have recovered, you can do “the big reveal” with a well-deserved slightly smug smile on your face…

SURELY, you have to agree that all the hard work in the gym was worth it?

OK, get busy exploring the rest of this site and then plan your workout regime for the week!

Wish You Were Here? Megapost.

Right now, a lot of guys can’t be where they want to be, or can’t do what they want to do. Eventually, it will all work out. Meanwhile, enjoy pics of guys who can do their thing… and it’s not all gyms! Maybe you would like to join them…

The first one is really special: it is a gym, and it is an experienced guy mentoring a younger guy – just what we love to see. They’ll end up on THE YOUNGER GENERATION page shortly (‘Inspiration’ section)…

And now for some variety! Get yourself a coffee, because there are 99 more pictures!

If that’s real lightning, maybe that’s NOT where you want to be!!

St. Calvins Day

Just for a change – celebrating their Calvins, please find 41 boys we can also admire!

That’s 40 boys for you with commendable bodies: I leave this slightly different one to the end!
