Did Pawel Poljanski Take It Too Far?
This is just straight up nasty! Pictured below is Pawel Poljanski, a cyclist currently competing in the Tour de France.
Take a look at this guys veins!
They say do what you love, just don’t do it in excess, and I think its safe to say that Pawel has biked just a little too much. This is based on his veins!
- I mean those things look straight out of a horror show.
Just to show how serious I am about how much this freaks me out, I want to break down each part of the leg.
Pawel Poljanski’s Feet…
Those are the feet of a White Walker. He looks like he is about to lose those bad boys.
- It looks like he was kicking rocks after he walked on fire.
There is no way I can comprehend how this guy was able to go on for hours upon hours. Here is a quick pic of how his feet looked before the ride.
Pawel Poljanski Calves…
“To be fair his calves look more shredded then fresh parmesan.”
- Everyone tells you that spot toning isn’t possible, likely because of all the folks flopping up and down on the floor trying to whittle away their middle.
But have you looked at a cyclist’s legs? Strong, chiseled quads and calves are the hallmark of the sport.
Heck, the New York Times even did a feature on how competitive riders can’t find pants that fit because of their small waists and powerful thighs and glutes.
- The reality is this: Cyclists turn the pedals about 90 revolutions per minute—that’s 5,400 times an hour—using their quads and glutes to do the work.
All that spinning also sheds fat—from all over. The end result is rock solid sculpted legs with the signature bulge over the knee.
To maximize cycling’s toning potential, head to the hills.
Fighting gravity forces you to push down on the pedals with all your might, which triggers the same physiological adaptations and muscle building as resistance training.
- Full throttle sprints—hammering as hard as you can for 30 seconds and recovering for a minute (repeating 10 times) will also fry fat and build lean muscle for great legs.
- That is a case of simply the worst tan lines these eyes have ever gazed upon.
I mean I don’t care if its 150 degrees out you have to wear sweatpants year round right?
The quads look absolutely horrifying.
“Those are the quads of a 90 year old man on his deathbed. And do you see the pimples on them, someone better piss test him ASAP!”
If you want to get an idea of what riding a bike with high intensity does to your lower body, just take a look at what Pawel’s legs looked like prior to the race!
One of the things you have to realize, is that Tour de France is a extremely physically demanding event.
The worst part of it, the lack of water your body gets during this very long period of time.
- When it comes to extreme athletes, none of them really ever ask questions about what can happen to them physically.
Cyclist in this case, have an obsession for long distance riding, and will sacrifice their own bodies literally in order to win.
- Olympic athletes have been asked previously, if they would trade their life in order to win a gold medal, and the answer was YES.
The cyclists in Tour de France are very similar.
If you look at Lance Armstrong, this guy was already the best in the world by far. Wanting to stay on top, he turned to steroids, not caring about what it does to his body.
- This tells you that these Tour de France or just regular athletes are willing to risk it all in order to win!
If you look at Pawel Poljaski, he literally risked his life in order to win the race.
- If you see how dehydrated his legs are, you can only imagine what the rest of his body is going through.
“People die all of the time from dehydration, and this can very well happen to anyone who takes it to the extreme like Pawel did.”
Dehydration Along With A Heat Stroke, Is Also A Major Concern!
I am stating this again, because you can very well die because of a heat stroke as well!
Being a Tour de France cyclist or any sort of professional extreme athlete, your life is in danger for sure!
What Are Some Other Dangers Of Cycling?
In a recent Tour de France, there were 12 riders who were disqualified and injured because of crashing, and many also riding with already serious injuries!
- Many commentators and even riders are calling this race the “Curse Of The Yellow Jersey!”
What you need to understand, is that people are leaving these races with insane life long injuries that they will have to live with forever!
There are a lot of mixed opinions on how dangerous Tour de France is and if it’s becoming more dangerous!
- It is very hard to collect actual accurate date over time, especially when it comes to weather conditions.
How much you can see on the road, the curves, the wind, and many other things are all major factors!
- On top of that, during the race, you will encounter all other dangers as any normal car on the road would.
“You are also riding with a bunch of riders who are nervous, and are all shoulder to shoulder!”
This risk of injury during this race is very possible, and so is death.
Those threats are as real as it gets.
You can easy die from weather conditions, from your health in regards to a heat stroke and dehydration.
You can also die from severe injury, and many other unfortunate events.
- When yo decide to be an extreme athlete, you better decide to be ok with the risk that comes along with it! You need to be prepared to die.
There are no rock climbers, race car drivers, sky divers, or whatever other sport athletes that have not come to terms with this!
