Michael Phelps Redux

There is a new rule in the office that all blog posts now have to be about Michael Phelps. Fair, I say.

Michael Phelps has gross muscles. He is the most toned person I’ve ever seen in my life, to the point of making me want to barf.  Just check out this picture:

Oh wait! That’s not Michael Phelps! That’s Israeli Bodybuilder Amit Saphir.  Saphir can bench press 167.5 kilos, which translates to (let me just take my metric calculator out), over 1 Million pounds.

Go for gold Amit! Am Yisrael Chai!
