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!

…Guys Enjoying Themselves!

May 16th 2018

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

An awful lot of underwear on show in public these days…who needs to bother with a swimsuit or shorts?

This next one could be a multiple exposure of the same guy. I’m not sure – what do you think? Five for the price of one, whichever…

quins... or all the same guy

At first, I thought this next one was also just one guy… but it isn’t. Compare the hair and the trails…

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.

…It’s OK to Care About Your Appearance and to Do Something About It – whatever your age!

…AND to be proud of it…

Up Against The Wall

Apr 22nd 2018

‘Up Against The Wall’ in weight-training terms means the point where you are desperate to stop but need to carry on. Here in these 14 pictures it has a more literal meaning…

Serge v Mikle

Serge, an enthusiastic wrestler from Russia, posts many highly recommended outdoor wrestling matches on YouTube under the handle ‘oedo77’. He also shared the following pictures to my Facebook page, which he follows, so I am hoping that he doesn’t mind my re-posting them here! Serge is at the front in this first shot.

Mates Relate

April 8th 2018

In perfect harmony, doing what you love to do with your best mate…

…such as admiring your gym results, for example:

…although you could have chosen a better background for your selfie, I suppose:

…here’s a better ‘bathroom’ camera angle! …

More suitable backgrounds, perhaps, for these next few pairs of well-formed sun-worshippers have done:
