Photos of the Day: Muscleman Crushes It in the Middle of Broadway

Phase 1 of New York’s reopening process doesn’t include gyms. But that wasn’t a problem for this muscleman. He just took his barbell into the middle of Broadway between 67th and 68th Street and started pumping it up, Hans & Franz style. Stephen Harmon got this fantastic photo sequence below.

Like we always say here at West Side Rag, “Sun’s out, guns out.” We also say things like “Hustle for that Muscle.”

      He is clearly without true pumptitude. Really, ya. We are sad, you know, because anyone who calls us “stupid” in the comments is really just jealous. Because his girlfriend looks at us, then looks at him, and realizes she’s not cuddling up with a true pumped-up man.

      Weightlifters need increased enforcement. Always walking into traffic facing the wrong way without any regards for people with low self-esteem. Always eating more calories than they deserve. Living a healthy lifestyle thinking they’re better than me. Ugh, makes me sick, so smug.

      They take up so much space when they’re on the sidewalks. Last week one almost brushed me with his bulbus tricep and I almost died, accident waiting to happen. The Arnold wannabes think they’re always posing in the Mr. Universe contest. Showing off their quads with the little gym shorts even in the winter below 60 outside. I think they should all need a permit for just standing around outside in public space.

        So true, JL, and add to that they’re almost all republicans! It’s shameful.
