Vladimir Putin is a man of many talents. He is the president of Russia, a former KGB operative who holds a black belt in judo, and the man knows how to ride a horse shirtless (see after video) while maintaining his cool. However Vlad has taken my appreciation of him to a whole other level with his fearless use of the thigh adductor machine. This is a machine that I have avoided at the gym for years because I didn’t want to look like a fool. Well my fear is no longer necessary. I am now free to shred my thighs like a mad man thanks to Vlad the conqueror. Vladimir hit the gym to stay toned and he jumped on the thigh adductor machine like it was a horse he was about to roam the country side on top of. This man is truly fearless. To top things off he is well aware of that 45 minute window you have after your workout to get that protein down. So he wasted no time in hitting up the fried barbecue. Like literally no time- he walked straight from the gym to the grill which appears to be located 5 steps away. My man.
