Description:Viewed from the right side, the man pictured in this image was seated in a gymnasium performing various strength-training exercises. At this point in his exercise routine, he was performing repetitions of an exercise known as a curl. In each hand he held a 40lb dumbbell, which he was curling, slowly bringing the weight up to shoulder level by flexing his arm at each elbow, then slowly returning it to a position straight down to his hip. Hopefully, he was also keeping well hydrated during his exercise regimen by drinking fresh water during his workout.
