Description:Viewed from the left posterior-oblique side, the man pictured in this image was in a gymnasium performing various strength-training and endurance-enhancing exercises. At this point in his exercise routine, he was performing what are known as pull-ups, which entail the participant holding on to an overhead bar, and while keeping his body still, and straight along the axial plane of his spine, flexing his arms, he slowly pulls himself up until his chin has risen above his hands. Hopefully, he was also keeping well hydrated during his exercise regimen by drinking fresh water during his workout.
