Fine Lines

This site celebrates male fitness with an accent on the gym, gymnastics and acrobatics/circus, sometimes wrestling, and so forth. Run by gay guys but not at all limited to gay readers – all fitness freaks (and any other kind of freak) are welcome here! There are several separate pages on these topics (and more to come) so explore the site fully.

Very occasionally we try to sell you a couple of books, so be prepared for that – the sales support the site. One might say that the books contain some ‘fine lines’. But, today, the fine lines we are celebrating are the well crafted torsos resulting from reasonable effort – not ridiculous bodybuilding (you won’t find that here). Some are clearly still ‘a work in progress’ but coming along nicely. Hopefully the selection of images in today’s post will encourage you to come back and to explore those other pages! And maybe explore the gym too.

Underwear Zone

Trawling the internet, as we all clearly do, for pictures of fit young men to inspire us to better our own bodies, one comes across many images of guys in their underwear being shared around the various forums. A lot are from underwear catalogues which we tend to ignore, then we have the ‘intermediate’ pictures from porn sequences of guys stripping; many are selfies representing the growing trend among young people to share more intimate pictures of themselves, and a growing number are what me might call ‘incidental underwear’ – guys appearing in their undies for training, swimming and so forth, no longer considering this to be inappropriate as it once would have been. We noticed this first amongst guys from Russia, but it is now much more common elsewhere. Once or twice, we see that white undies becoming remarkably transparent when wet, but the guys seem happy to post pictures of themselves anyway!

As part of a clearout of my ‘store’ of images awaiting posting here, today’s post is definitely the underwear zone. We have images in all of the categories I have mentioned: hope you can enjoy! I continue first with that well-known internet star, Shannon Boh, who has an arrangement with a number of underwear manufacturers to promote their products:

‘Fitcasting’ (based in Lithuania) permanently link their images to the underwear their models are promoting:

Undies in the snow? Why not? Making some sort of point, perhaps…

…these guys are making three points!

The Cull is Over!

After some deliberation, and noticing that the popularity of this site is steadily improving, I have abandoned the cull of old material and invested in a ‘Premium Package’ which more than quadruples the available storage and will allow video uploads as well, should I be in the humour to do that! It also removes pesky advertising.

Material already culled cannot be recovered, however. The cull was useful in that I found multiple examples of the same picture being posted more than once and in general I have reduced each picture to a single appearance somewhere among the historic posts or the auxiliary pages. I will also be expanding the range of auxiliary pages bit by bit.

You (regular readers) can now do your bit. Firstly, make sure that you tell me what you like best within our varied fitness and gay themes. Do this either by commenting on a post or directly at gymacrobat@gmail.com. Secondly, because I am now paying significantly more money to run the site, you can please buy more books (and recommend them to friends to buy their own copies – not to borrow yours!!). They make good presents too for like-minded people. You help in this regard will be much appreciated and we can ship anywhere in the world at reasonable cost. It is important that the first three books are ordered this way because their publisher went bust and I will get nothing for copies purchased from booksellers or through Amazon. Let The Future Find Me is with a thriving publisher, although I can equally send those out myself too – all books direct from me come with a discount btw to offset postage costs.

Book details, then, at the end of this post.

And now, a random selection of guys with excellent upper body development, celebrating the hard work in the gym they have clearly put in. 40 shots altogether for you to admire of guys posing what they’ve built. Enjoy.


Book details!!

LOVING THE BOY: My first literary effort – part 1 of a trilogy as it turns out, though never intended that way. Finding gay love amid loving friends in a sporting/entertainment environment, performing, and the first step to becoming a gay dad… then, onwards and upwards as Dave and I (both dads) develop our sporting and family lives, go on tour around the world, meeting misadventure, in THE POWER OF LOVE. A taste of the spiritual creep in to most of my books, and here is no exception, with unseen forces shaping events we shall never fully understand…

…and the final part of the trilogy (and much shorter – phew!) AGAINST ALL ODDS in which everything turns out all right in the end but not until after some pretty scary stuff, thriller-like, as the links of our friends to the underworld come to influence our lives. All built around our true stories but improved by someone with more writing experience than I ever had to make them ‘a good read’… all of which hopefully improved what I do sufficiently that LET THE FUTURE FIND ME is much better written, succinct, moving, and entertaining as an outcast gay lad leaves the only world he knows to find the answer to life, adventure and love… and a dramatic finale. Link to the publisher of this one by clicking on the cover.

Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics 1

Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics 2

Content should be self-evident, but the latter two include wrestling as well.

These three pages are now full (unwieldy to load if expanded further) but new ones will be added soon – watch this space!

Easter Gymnast Parade

Our favourite sport. A shot there from our friend Roman G showing Dieter Egermann (coach) assisting a young gymnast in the Diamidov turn in a wonderful gym in Vienna which has been demolished in favour of a road tunnel. Oh well. The theme continues, even if that gym does not!

Three great shots of the same young gymnast:

A trio of UK gymnast Max Whitlock now:

And a couple from Chelyabinsk (Telitsyn’s gym) to finish off this post:

Happy Easter! (But No Bunnnies…)

…that was last time. And they were gym bunnies, obviously. Today, as it is a holiday, we’ll just have guys having FUN!

Bunnies for Easter…

…Gym Bunnies, obviously! Any over-indulgence over the holiday should be matched by equivalent overindulgence in exercise!

Fit, muscular, tanned, shirtless… and smooth!

Male acrobats tend to work shirtless for several reasons – it’s a hot, sweaty business, perhaps we think we look good, but also for safety. ‘Skin-on-skin’ is safe when being supported by a partner. So, in our ‘old days’ back in Tennessee, we used to have discussions with our performing partners about body hair. Zach, in particular, always wanted to shave his chest but we insisted that he didn’t, the ‘fuzz’ on both pecs blending beautifully into his Latino skin tone. Neither Dave nor I is hugely endued, so we never have.

Models almost always do it, and deal with armpit hair too. That’s another thing.. particularly exposed when doing arm balancing! Again, we never have: it looks after itself, and no-one in an audience has ever complained. We also appreciate the so-called ‘treasure trail’ up from the pubes to the belly button and slightly beyond. So that has always stayed with us, too.

Today’s post looks at a particularly nice set of ‘smoothies’ (chest-wise), some with armpit hair and some without. 50 pix, 51 guys. Enjoy.

Smooth chests and oil somehow go together:

(However, oiling up and acrobatics absolutely DON’T go together!)

(We don’t usually do skinny boys here, but there’s something about that picture)


If you don’t know where all this chat about acrobatics and Tennessee is coming from, look no further than these three books, available from me directly at gymacrobat@gmail.com (can mail to anywhere in the world at discounted prices following the bankruptcy of their publisher!).

A fourth, smaller, novel about a lonely gay boy cast out from his community and in search of a future is also available (its publisher still exists – click on the cover!) and also directly from me at a discount:

…and don’t forget to check out the other pages on this blog for many more great pictures!

I don’t think that we’ve ever featured shoulders and upper-arm development in our appreciations of well-crafted boys – so here goes! Of course, in many of the pictures, you get the chest and abs as a bonus!

It’s Always More Fun With a Friend

Training, performing, or just hanging out. Loads of friends here to enjoy!

Japanese boys like showing off…

Japanese locker room abs shot!

Here’s two Japanese gymnasts who have escaped their gym. The one on the left has marks on his arm indicating some recently removed strapping for muscle strain. Some tidy arm muscle from all that high bar and rings work, too!

And now: ‘fore’ and ‘aft’ of the same two guys:

I always feeling that sharing the effort (or the fun) with just one guy is somehow special – more so than in a larger group. I hope that Dave would agree!

Bonus pic for today:
