This week I was at the gym with my husband when it occured about what to write. Many of us made New Year's Resolutions to work out so the gym was pretty full those first weeks of January. We enjoy working out together at our local place and have started to recognize some of the familiar faces of other work out partners. However, those people have dropped out now and we have our few familiar faces that greet us each
If you haven't been to a gym, it is a fun place for people watching. I love to see my husband on the weight machines. He's a guy that has strong shoulders and nice arms. Something about those areas on a man are very sexy. When he is working out on the shoulder press weight machine, it allows me to watch the play on those muscles. It also allows me to benefit from the strength that he has when he feels the urge to be romanctic and carry me.
Of course he isn't my only person to watch. There are these two gentlemen who also work out frequently. They work out a lot on the free weights using them on their arms and chest. They sweat and strain as they push their bodies past their potential. I watch them as they lay on the bench and grip the weight-bar with their hands, anticipation sending goosebumps over my shin. Then they shove the heavy weights up over their chests. I love to see their faces as they strengthen their arms and shoulders as the muscles bunch and stretch.
The male body is sexy for many reasons but for me I find pleasure in the play between shoulders and arms. What part of the body can you not live without?
