OK, two examples of a good start. But Chad has his own way of running his gym, as I have written extensively in the books mentioned at the end of this post: he selects the members, they have to be seriously committed to fitness and improving their bodies; he forbids the wearing of tops and encourages his charges to work out naked. His vision is – if you are developing a body, let’s all see it and admire the progress! So, pretty much, in that environment, we do it this way:
…which demands some specific hygiene issues (need I elaborate?) – if someone is going to sit on my face butt-naked in a wrestling match, I need that experience to be untroubled… well, apart from the irritation at being pinned and having to submit!
Chad invents strange ‘games’ from time to time and, this last weekend, we had one involving two teams of four wrestlers. One guy from each team go head-to-head for the first five minutes: if there is any submission, another guy substitutes and the original one stays in the team for later. For the next five minutes, it’s two a side, then three for the next five minutes, and finally four. Once there are multiple wrestlers, if you submit, you retire. Eventually, it goes to last man standing, which might end up between two members of the same team (that bit is weird, but there you go).
Strategy is all important after the first five minutes. Team members can ‘club together’ to attack one individual from the other team and, so long as they can avoid the other opponents, they stand a good chance of eliminating that individual.
We gave it a go, and it worked out that I started against that exceptionally ripped body known as Carlos, who devotes five hours a day every day to working on his ‘cuts’ and has a body like a coiled spring. However, he doesn’t wrestle much, so we kept it going, sweat dripping on each other and smeared over our bodies, until Ethan joined ‘my’ team and Chad himself joined Carlos. It was in the third segment that ‘disaster’ struck, because the opponents, now joined by talented wrestler Jake, decided to make me the victim. With Carlos sitting on my face, Jake squeezing my manhood and Chad forcing my legs into a wider split than they are ever trained to do, I squealed my way out to ‘lick my wounds’. Immediately they set on Ethan, and spat him out too. But then the clock signified the two final wrestlers to join: on ‘my’ side the champion fighter Ron Lake and, on Carlos’s team, my Dave. Ron immediately reversed the odds, and Jake was the next one to submit.
By this time, Ethan and I were both extremely horny and he had that appealing look in his eye which is difficult to resist, especially as he is Tuan Jie and therefore may be fully accommodated for his gay needs. So I knelt for him and his chest was quickly pressed against my sweaty back, his lips licking and kissing the back of my neck as well as biting my trap muscles… Jake slipped beneath me to join me in what we can conveniently call a ’69’ and… well, there are some descriptions of all that in the books too!! (They do contain an actual tale of circus performance and adventure – it’s not all gay sex at all…)
Carlos was quickly eliminated and returned to completing the thousand-odd situps he does every day to keep his abs in shape for the side-career of modelling he has found for himself. Dave was quickly out too, leaving a rather predictable Ron versus Chad match to drag on – and on – and on – by which time the rest of us, through our various activities, had lost interest! I think Ron triumphed in the end and Chad took that rather badly.
So there we are – an everyday story of gym folk – not all gay, by the way, just mostly – guys who enjoy shaping their bodies and their physical skills at every possible opportunity:
One just to make a bit of a joke (and definitely for the gay guys);
Maybe we can get a copy of that sign and present it to Chad at Christmas.
…and finally, for a change, an interesting use to put a kettlebell too, from a practitioner of a different sport:
