OMG! This is what your legs look like after Tour De France!

I won't post the pic because it will scare the faint of heart. I don't know what's worse, his "tan" or his veins. Just a little lactic acid buildup!

1. That's not from lactic acid build up.

I'm sure that he has that as well. It is a combination of near zero subcutaneous fat and the massive blood flow to keep those muscles working.

Are Big Veins a Sign of Fitness?
This unbelievable photo of a Tour de France rider's prominent veins will have you wondering if you should be creating your own vascular network

snip:
Bora-Hansgrohe rider Pawel Poljanski broke the internet after Instagraming a photo of his "tired legs" following stage 16.

The sprawl of veins punching through his paper-thin skin looked like a host of spiders throwing a web-weaving rave. Heck. Even my mom reposted it asking, "Does this hurt?!" Other slack-jawed observers wondered if such a vascular look was worth aspiring to, or whether Poljanski was simply a freak of nature.


Ah! It's so nice that html is working again at DU.

10. I believe the pic you're referring to is a

fake/Photoshop image. I haven't seen any real recent pics of him without a shirt but there is little chance that his body deteriorated as much as that image made it appear 5 plus years ago.

11. I didn't post it and I won't

I am a fan of Arnold's movies and I guess his politics are not as bad as some, but the fact that he is a Republican makes him some what revolting...But He is not like Mel Gibson who is a racist fuck.

7. I'm used to seeing body builders with veins bulging

This in on a super skinny biker, and it's his legs only.

8. you don't think a person who exercises their legs for a race

won't have legs like that? Do the people who put on these races have judges who check the participants before the race to check for overly vascular veins?


"we're sorry, your legs are too big and veiny, you must be on Steroids, you are discounted from the race"

9. Is it fair to say that the odds are very high

that he also takes various performance enhancing drugs? Even if that's true, I have no idea if such drugs would have anything to do with how his legs look, but I'll venture to say that the kind of grueling leg work out that something like the Tour de France involves, really isn't natural to the human body.
