The Afghan Adventures of Superman - Working out at the Gym

I haven't had a workout buddy for quite some time so Superman went to the gym with me today. We have to sign in so that the powers that be can keep track of how many people are using the equipment. I think they'll be honored that Superman stooped to using our lowly, humble gym.

Here he is loading the weights on the bench press. He wasn't through loading the plates when I took the picture and of course he put on several more plates and of course, this is just one side of the bar. I didn't think he was going to stop putting on the plates. I couldn't even imagine lifting that much weight in my wildest dreams.

He was benching so fast that it was a blur, hence the blurry picture. It was truly an awesome sight watching all that weight going up and down. The bar was actually bending in the middle!!!

After our upper body workout, we switched to lower body. Here he is on the leg press bench.

After an impressive workout in the weight room, we did some crunches using the swiss ball.

Because he never really got his heart rate up with the weights, he decided to try out the treadmill. Only because of the "high quality" of my camera was I able to catch this picture of him running. Otherwise it was just a blur.
What a workout!! I felt so invigorated and was grateful to my buddy for working out with me!!

I'm surprised that Wonder Woman isn't with you.

I'm so glad I introduced you to Superman and the other Superheros. It warms my heart to see you two developing such a magical relationship!!

What is this, a male dominated war in a men's gym?

After all, this is a muslim country where women have fewer priviledges. Wonder Woman would need a black robe and veil to go out in public.

Your regular workout buddy should return soon from his time off. It appears he needs some inspiration from you and Superman to get back in trim after all the eating and relaxing he did. He did some bulking up but only around the middle. Keep up the good work.
