Fun!

June 1st 2018

All this talk of rigorous training and fitness in this blog is all very well, but the most important thing is to enjoy it! Here are images of guys doing just that – enjoying taking advantage of their fitness to just have FUN!

So, to begin, a not so perfect handstand, then…

Gymnasts and Bar Boys

A bit of a mega-post, starting with assorted gymnasts and then some street-workout boys to follow.

And now, the one some of you may have been waiting for, given that the literal meaning of ‘Gymnastics’ is ‘The Naked Art’ (although it was applied to boys track and field athletics really!)…

gymnast bare

…which brings us on to the bars! Unfortunately, in competition, leotards and long pants are an obligation… same move from two boys on the parallel bars…

That takes us up to our usual 20 pics, but we’ll go on…

Briefly into the weights gym:

bars

And here’s a novel use of a bar by a group of wrestle boys (I think they are):

tumblr_p8x44hPnsA1wqtdz2o1_500

Looks fun, but the performer needs to “dish” his body in the upward part of the movement, trying to keep the legs straight.

…now we move the bars outside, starting with a triple lever…

Quite a crowd here!

“Don’t Chase Dreams: Hunt Goals!”

May 27th 2018

As “they” say… ‘Pain is Temporary, Pride is Forever’. Guys who put in the work are the ones who can take most satisfaction from the results. And (tongue-in-cheek joke here)… they can look ‘Radiant’ in the mornings (see the Gay Expression page entry for May 27th 2018)!

(Acccess to an outdoor gym in a great climate is a particular luxury: we are fortunate in managing two of them, though not quite that close to the beach. we do get great bodies like his working out here…)

(In response to a recent comment, I do not knowingly post images where inappropriate substance abuse has taken place to enhance the muscle and ‘cuts’. We firmly support so called ‘natural’ bodybuilding and those like us who train for specific activities and sports: protein products are allowed in our gyms but we rarely partake ourselves)

A Vested Interest…

May 27th 2018

Guys interested in comparing or showing off their physique don’t ordinarily wear ‘tops’ for the selfies or poses. Just occasionally, an image catches our eye where the shirt or vest seems to ‘work’ and enhance the effect’. In some other cases, the guys are clearly in gyms where a dress code is enforced, but keep it to a minimum! Here are a few:

All Heating Up!

May 21st 2018

Here in south-east Portugal, the heat is building, the tans are developing, the boys are training in the outdoor gym and the pool and beach are at the ready. What not to like?

Here are 20 or so boys either keeping cool or getting heated!

‘In Memoriam’: the Yahoo Group “lotzofyoungguys” which died last weekend, seemingly due to lack of interest…

Heads Hung…

May 10th 2018

On May 8th (see below), I posted a set of guys with their heads held high, enjoying the look of their bodies. Here’s a contrasting set – many guys, especially in selfies, have a tendency to look down, usually at their abs, instead of at the camera…

…self admiration, perhaps. Unlikely to be shyness, given that they’re showing off their bodies…

Relaxation for a Confused Author!

Apr 30th 2018

Having half a day off today and decided to try and make some progress with the next book. Trouble is, I’m thinking about two books at once, and I realised that I am mentally moving characters into the wrong plots…

…so instead I decided to check out some new pictures on themes related to the ‘day jobs’ or organising fitness classes and the occasional acrobatic show. Dave says his shoulders ache and I hurt my right knee in last night’s little display: maybe we’re getting too old for this stuff. At least our friends jack and Ethan, here for the season, are three years younger!

So here we go, some hand balances first and then some other related things.
