    Is it warm in here for is it just me? icon_redface.gif





    In all seriousness, though, it's crazy what can change in 30 years. And even though this can be seen through a very campy lens (and I mean VERY campy), these guys are still smokin' hot. Yowza.

    I also wouldn't mind if some of the guys at my gym were wearing those shorts. icon_wink.gif

    A whole generation of 80's teens grew up beating off to videos like these...it was almost socially acceptable porn for middle class kids that offered plausible deniability: "I'm not gay, I just want to get in shape."

    And, wow, those shorts and singlets look SO gay to a contemporary eye!

    Let's not forget the Soloflex infomercials and those hot models like Scott Madsen:

    Love the shorts! I'm so sick of board shorts, might as well wear culottes LOL.

    The hair looks so dated! They don't look like they do steroids.

    Nice memories. These were my times. We had more hair but shorter shorts in those days. We also had those tall white socks, which I'm glad have disappeared. I saw a guy in my gym who's wearing shorter shorts, like in the video. It is a great look on him, and it shows off all the work (squats) he does. Maybe the look of shorter shorts will return. I wouldn't mind one bit.

    Absolutely he does! These baggy shorts in fashion for the past few decades have always looked like girly dresses from a distance until one realizes they are practically culottes. And he also made bald being fashionable, but one understands why he chose that style. What is incomprehensible is why all the young guys with great heads of hair chose to cut their locks or shave a head bald. Uh, guys, in case you didn't realize, most men grow balder with the aging process. Enjoy your hair while you have it! Duh.

    I'm DYING to know how those men aged…

    Aside from Olivia Newton John's "Let's Get Physical" video:

    NO discussion of 80s workout vids could possibly be complete without referencing the endless whiplash inducing, crotch thrusting, UNINTENTIONALLY campy workout in "Perfect" as PerfectEd by John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis:

    I miss these shorts. God, I really miss these shorts:

    Remember, "Perfect" was a "serious" movie about journalistic ethics, which is why the World was treated to the sight of Jann Wenner in lycra:
