Fitness, Acrobatics Etc #2

And so here is the continuation from Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page #1, which has gotten too large for its own good! The pictures continue here, and I commend you to review the #1 page at your leisure… the pictures there won’t last for ever!

Meanwhile: “On With The Show!

THE NEWEST STUFF ON THIS PAGE WILL ALWAYS APPEAR IMMEDIATELY BELOW THIS NOTICE!

Ready for Everything?

August 13th 2018

These first lads are ‘ready for ANYthing’!

The remaining four boys in this set aren’t actually dressed for combat, or engaged in it, but I’m betting that it would take much…

Some More Group Therapy

August 11th 2018

I really like being with other guys. Sharing something, whether it is sport, training, just chilling… just being mates. Here are some groups, to share with you guys. The first one is maybe ‘over the top’ in every sense!

A final commercial break for a shorter, cheaper, novel – the main character is gay and not respected by is community as a result, and it is a sort of ‘anti-romance’ combined with a lonesome road trip

On The Level

August 9th 2018

Holding one’s body straight and level – either way up – requires considerable preparation on muscle tone and strength. Let’s celebrate that with this short set.

The first two are Egor Malyshev, a gymnast from Chelyabinsk. He likes the rings!

In fact, it is often the Street Workout boys from Russia and Eastern Europe that excel in this kind of thing.

All Hands on Deck!

August 2nd 2018

…in the sense of being upside down, weight on the hands!

If you look closely at the silhouettes on the front covers of my first three books, you’ll see some more handstands! You might even enjoy reading the words that go with them (especially if gay friendly). Click on the cover to find out more.

One in the snow – why not? Shirtless, naturally!

OK, that’s not really a handstand, I agree! A balance at least, though.

OK,, for the pedantic, that’s a tuck somersault and a layout back somersault with knees bent which should really be straight… practice makes perfect!

I know this next one is a repeat, but I like it because the position is a bit weird…

Finally for this set, there are many places a gymnast can choose to lift to handstand – but the serving hatch is a new one on us!

The Long Hot Summer Continues…

July 30th 2018

…let’s celebrate! Join the boys in the sun… and perhaps in the water too…

Celebrating the Amazing Weather

…in Western Europe.

Here on the Algarve, things are pretty normal with sun and temperatures nudging 28-30C most days. In Ireland and UK, however, such temperatures are NOT normal, but near our place in Wales yesterday it was 33C!! There are disadvantages: we hear that the water supply at our place has all but dried up and the current visitors are rationing showers and the use of the loo. Heigh Ho!

We celebrate good weather now with our first set of featured fit lads today, and I’ll follow that up with 20 more pictures of gymnasts enjoying their thing…

Putting Ones Back Into It!

June 27th 2018

All those guys who take pride in their bodies and post selfies on the internet… how often do they present their back development? Hardly ever! So this series of images focuses (as ever!) on fit guys and, in this case, the work they have put in at the gym into developing their backs. I am grateful to a follower in Idaho (‘Tall Bob’) for sending me some of these.

Wrestling Selection for June

June 24th 2018

Some of the guys in this group of pix are rather older than I usually post… but their wrestling is fine! And we rather like some of the holds… especially perhaps this first one!

Pitting your strength, skill and cunning against the other guy… muscle against muscle, skin against sweaty skin… possibly the ultimate male experience?

Three great leg scissors…

Showtime!

June 24th 2018

…assorted acrobats (etc) performing and training!

That’s Jastin Monteiro, a Spanish arm balancer. Here’s a couple more of him:

Now Jack Atherton (right) and Sam Sturt at Butlin’s a few years ago. A useful ‘strength’ move. Jack is with Cirque in the USA now.

Alexander Goloborodko is an astounding contortionist…

No idea who most of the rest are…

(Who needs clothes when there’s no audience?)

(One presumes he was training without an audience as well!)

Teeterboard next: you can get quite a height!
