Hack Squats

As I've mentioned before it will take a while to get up to speed.
Here are Peter Putnam and Monty Rogers performing hack squats in photos by Robert Reiff.
Doing legs is a rewarding workout but sometimes I think you've got to be sick to enjoy it.

More Mr. Exercise

The first man is Anthony Capuano, December 2002, photo by Powershots Photography.
Number two is Jud Dean, August 2008, photo by Troy Phillips/Akimitsu Sadoi.
And finally, Steve White, April 2008, photo again by Troy Phillips/Akimitsu Sadoi.
I'm afraid Mr. White is not my best effort but here he is nonetheless.

Vacation Update

I just wanted to remind my readers I am on vacation but I do check in daily to look for comments. I'll be back to posting in a few days. This is the view from a balcony in the house where my partner and I are staying. Those are the San Gabriel Mountains in the distance.

Vacation Approaches

As vacation approaches I find I am a bit busy to work on my scans. I present 2 disparate bodybuilders for today and I hope to provide a few more before I leave. Here are Branch Warren, whom you already recognized, and Geovanny Govea. Do a Google search on Geo and you'll come up with some stunning pics. Photographers for these pictures are unknown.

Chris Jalali (#3)

Mr. Chris Jalali. There were many photos of Chris in Reps! magazine, all with printing and inserts. These were the best I could do. Chris is yet another favorite of mine (perhaps especially as Phil Hancock?); he's good looking and nicely muscled. These photos are either by Alex Ardenti or Robert Reiff (photographers' credit not clearly noted in article).
