muscle beach california

musclebeach2.jpgMuscle Beach is a bit of a misnomer.  There is no beach here and it's pretty rare that there are any muscles either.  There is a spot in Santa Monica which claims to be muscle beach as well, but they don't have any lifting equipment at all...just a sign saying that it was once there.  At least this area (right by the basketball courts just south of Windward on the boardwalk), has actual weightlifting equipment.  And on the busiest of Saturday afternoons, you might just get a few exhibitionists out there.  If you look closely at this picture, you might see the man who sits out at the end of windward almost nude juggling one ball.  He is definitely a muscle beach exhibitionist.

They do have bodybuilding events here from time to time...but somehow as a venice resident, I've never seen them.
