Powerful Images

What the hell is that? Van Damme (or a clone) with gloves and 2 1/2 db’s doing Tae Bo?

That picture may be a lot of things, but powerful aion’t one of them.

I laughed my ass off when I saw it.

If you had bothered to look at the link you’d see that his name is apparently Sergei Zicuncov… I guess some russian bodybuilder.

I would, however, agree with you that it was a dubious choice of a powerful image. It looks somehow very… gay.

What the hell is with the current powerful image! Is this what a T-man is? A bodybuilder who poses with his pants coming undone and doing some sissy cardio workout with dumb as hell no weight dumbbells in his hands? Does he like broad-way show tunes too?

The only thing powerful about this image is how stupid it is.

Rolo.

Thanks for posting this man. I was thinking the exact same thing - “Am I the only one who sees nothing powerful that image?”

Shit, the guy is boxing with grade school dumbbells, wow talk about power :/. Next week we’ll get Coleman going through his thong collection.

The dumbell thing puzzles me but THAT is the body I’m looking to build. Anyone care to take a guess as to what types/duration/dose/ect of drugs he’s on. Doesn’t look like a total freak IMO.

I don’t know. Looks pretty lame to me. Now I just have to hope he doesn’t track me down and beat my ass with those 1 1/4 lb dumbbells.

Yeah, guys, point taken. But if I were built like that, I can’t imagine anyone in my gym razzing me seriously about how I choose to do my cardio boxing.

I’ll have you know that those “chrome” dumbbells are made of osmium, the densest element on earth.

As such, they each weigh over 200 pounds.

Wussy? Gay? I think not.

Okay, okay, I’ll swap out the picture. I thought I saw something cool in it and decided to risk it.

Oh well.

Crop the bottom off so we don’t have to notice that the pants are half undone… ?

The physique is cool… he’s got some type of cobra look happening.

No way!!! Leave it up!!!

As stupid as that guy looks, I think it makes a statement all it’s own. I don’t know exactly what the statement is - but the irony of the photo is starting to speak to me.

Hey man, don’t talk TC out of replacing it. The pic has to go. :slight_smile:

I mean, a powerful image would be basically guys with heavy weights. Especially natural guys because what’s really rare and powerful. We have juiced guerillas all over the place but no images of what’s really possible without enhancements. Because you can get these kinds of “powerfull images” on every news stand, there’s no impact.

One of the lamest pictures I have ever seen…screams all show and no go(even though I can’t deny the fact that his physique is awesome). And the unbuckled pants…if I ever had a guy want to train boxing with me, and his pants were unbuckled, Id run like hell.

Ok, TC changed the picture. Although I don’t respect the guy on it because you can get that stuff on any Flex cover. But I must admit that the picture is undoubtedly powerful.
