Sports Stud: Sylvain Longchambon

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

This week, I decided to do something totally different and I’ve selected a well-known professional ice dancer (a discipline of figure skating which draws from the world of ballroom dancing) from France named Sylvain Longchambon. He’s super handsome and i thought it was time to choose a different athletic discipline other than the usual soccer or rugby player hotties.

The 32-year old actually was part of the 2011 series 6 cast of Dancing On Ice where he was partnered with soap actress, Jennifer Metcalfe. He withdrew from series 7 after tearing a tendon in his right biceps while training with partner Heidi Range. This year, he is planning on returning to Dancing On Ice and has been partnered with Samia Ghadie who he is now dating. Very cute couple.

Check out his ridiculously sexy pictures below. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!

The Canadian Health Ministry has just released some rather creative and humerous PSA videos to get an important point across. The first video is all about Social Nibbling and how a guy doesn’t have to buy his own nibbles, he can just have some of other people’s nibbles and just does it for fun. The second PSA is about Social Farting and in the video, a woman talks about how she’s not a farter, she’s a social farter. In the third video, it’s all about Ear Wax Picking. In that video, the woman talks about how ear wax picking is a great way to meet people and that she feels like she looks good doing it.

Do You Smoke Cigarettes?

The point they’re trying to make is with relation to smoking and how social smoking is still smoking. The video is part of their “Quit The Denial” campaign. “Social nibbling, social farting, and social ear wax picking are as ridiculous as social smoking. Research shows that almost 2/3 of young people who finish just one cigarette will become daily smokers.” Watch the videos below!

For many of you, getting enough sleep is a big problem and/or many of you are not “morning people.” As a result, you may find yourself hitting the snooze button time and time again to get as many extra minutes of sleep as you can. But is this really helping?

Another great video from ASAP Science addresses this very subject. I for one am a morning person so very rarely do I find myself using the snooze button. I find that I’m the most productive in the morning, as opposed to staying up late to get something done. This video talks about the science of sleep and what effects the snooze button has on that… Hint: Using the snooze button is not a good thing. As the saying goes, “You Snooze, You Lose.

Find out why snoozing is not recommended by checking out the latest video from the boys at ASAP Science.

A couple months ago, I joined CrossFit 604here in Vancouver and it was the best thing I ever did. I can honestly say CrossFit is now my favorite fitness related activity that I’ve ever done. People have said to me, “Oh you’re part of the cult,” which is hilarious. The reason why it people think that is because people are so freaking excited about what they are doing and can accomplish. I now know first hand and in CrossFit I have pushed myself further physically than in any other fitness related activity I’ve ever done.

1. The Challenge

You know when you go to the gym and the odd time you leave and you think to yourself, “Man that was an amazing workout…” Well, that’s literally how I feel every morning I finish CrossFit. You push yourself further than you would at the gym and the workouts really push you to your limit… to the point where you realize that it’s a mind game. Your mind wants you to quit, but your body can keep going.

2. The Variety

Every day is different and you don’t have to worry about “chest day” or “legs day” and things like that which is what I hated about the gym. I would get bored of my routines so quickly. Prior to CrossFit, I was also doing elite bootcamps with WestCoast Fitness, and those were 10x better than going to the gym (for me) and actually incorporate some CrossFit into their workouts. There just came a point where I couldn’t do CrossFit and bootcamp or my body would die. If CrossFit doesn’t appeal to you and you want to go to a good bootcamp class a few times a week, I’d recommend West Coast Fitness (that is if you are in Vancouver of course).

Sports Stud: Rich Froning Jr.

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

With the Reebok CrossFit Games 2013 Open currently under way, I figured it’d be a great time to highlight one of the “fittest men on Earth”. People compete in their own cities with a certain workout and scores are entered online (I’m doing it myself!). The highest scores move on to the next round until the finals that take place in LA.

Rich Froning Jr. is 25 years old and is currently featured in Men’s Health magazine in an article titled, “The World’s Fittest Man Will Kick Your Ass.” He is in the only two-time male winner of the Reebok CrossFit Games, a three-stage test of diabolically tough exercises you should not try at home. He can bench 350 pounds, squat 445, do 75 pullups in a row, and run a 5km in 20 minutes. In the article, they show some of the other CrossFit exercises that help build the incredible body that he has that include jump rope double-unders, pistol squats, handstand pushups, and more. It’s effing tough, but I myself and loving it more than any other fitness related thing I’ve ever done.

Check out some photos and video of the sexy athlete below.

Sports Stud: Bachar Houli

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

Since it’s pouring rain where I am here in Vancouver, for this week’s Sports Stud I decided to highlight someone from somewhere hot and decided to feature an AFL Footie player from Australia named Bachar Houli.

This handsome 24-year old is an Australian rules footballer for Richmond in the Australian Football League and he plays as a midfielder. An interesting fact is that he is the first devout Muslim to play in the AFL. When he was a kid, he had to sneak off to play football because there wasn’t much sports played in Islamic schools and his parents didn’t approve at the time. His persistence to want to play the sport eventually influenced his parents into accepting and supporting him and that led to his path to become an AFL player.

Houli is also only the second player of a Lebanese background to play in the AFL. The sexy athlete is off the market, married to a beautiful woman named Rouba Abou-Zeid. Check out more of his sexy pictures below!

Sports Stud: James Ellington

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

With all of the rain and gloomy weather this week, I’ve decided to highlight This week I decided to highlight someone from the Summer Olympics to remind me of warmer times. This week’s Sports Stud is the incredibly sexy British sprinter, James Ellington.

The 27-year-old races in the 100 metres and 200 metres. He made his world senior championship debut at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics, running in the 200m and finishing 5th in his heat. He was also a part of the Great Britain Olympic team for the 2012 Summer Olympics, running in the 200 metres. He finished fifth in his heat of the 200 metres and failed to progress.

Another interesting fact about his Olympic story is that he got a lot of attention worldwide by selling his sponsorship rights on eBay leading up to London 2012. The winning bid was £32,550, but that turned out not to be a genuine deal. Instead, Ellington was sponsored by King of Shaves.

Sports Stud: Robbie Rogers

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

Yesterday, a handsome 25-year-old US professional athlete and Olympic soccer player came out of the closet and his name is Robbie Rogers. Needless to say, I had to make him the Sports Stud for this week. He has decided to leave soccer (not sure if that is indefinitely or not) and focus on the next chapter of his life.

In his blog posting he wrote that throughout his life he has “been afraid, afraid to show whom I really was because of fear… Fear that judgment and rejection would hold me back from my dreams and aspirations. Fear that my loved ones would be farthest from me if they knew my secret. Fear that my secret would get in the way of my dreams.” By coming out of the closet, he has created the space to make whatever dreams he wants to come true a reality. “Secrets can cause so much internal damage. People love to preach about honesty, how honesty is so plain and simple. Try explaining to your loved ones after 25 years you are gay. I always thought I could hide this secret. Football was my escape, my purpose, my identity. Football hid my secret, gave me more joy than I could have ever imagined.”

Rogers played in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and is also the co-owner of a men’s fashion brand called Halsey. Check out his sexy photos below as well as his entire “coming out” blog entry.
