They say that cycling is a really good workout, especially for your legs. Over time, your legs are sure to get into shape if you cycle consistently. But recently, a pro-cyclist went on social media to prove exactly what happens.
His name is Pawel Poljanski. He’s a 27-year-old Polish racing cyclist and is currently riding in the Bora-Hansgrohe in the Tour de France. After 16 racing days, he has placed 75th and has been racing since the first day.
Poljanski only has two resting days. He’s been riding for 70 hours, 13 minutes and 50 seconds so far. You’re probably wondering how his legs look like at this point of the competition. Well, he posted a photo on his Instagram to show you.
It’s exactly what you would think his legs would look like: jacked. He captioned the photo “after 16 stages my legs look a little tired.”
According to Indy100, there are 21 stages and Poljanski has five more left to go. He’s not the only cyclist to post a photo of his legs.
In 2014, Chris Froome, who’s the current tour leader, posted a similar image that showed the effect that the competition has on his legs.
A lot of us are wondering and are concerned about the massive veins that are popping out of his legs.
