Last month we suggested that TIM MCGRAW has been trying to "out-buff" KENNY CHESNEY on their Brothers of the Sun Tour.
--Well, according to one of the opening acts, GRACE POTTER, mission accomplished. She watched Tim do his workout on a recent tour stop and was blown away. She said, quote, "He was lifting tires over his head. Like, huge truck tires.
--"Then, he had these two thick heavy black ropes . . . like as big as your hands . . . and they were tied to a fork lift, and he was taking the ropes and going like this.
--"I felt like I was sneaking into the Pentagon watching him work out. The guy is fit as a fiddle. And now I know why. He's the most healthy guy on this tour. There's no contest. He looks like Iron Man, in the Iron Man suit."
(--That statement MUST be killing Kenny. He's been mister chicken breasts and lean body mass for years . . . and now his duet partner on "You and Tequila" is crowning Tim as the healthiest dude on the tour.)
--Somebody posted pics of Tim doing his workout and it's pretty impressive . . . and strange. He really does toss huge tractor tires around. (--Check it out.)
--Tim saw the photos and decided to post one on his Twitter page. (--Here it is.) He wrote, quote, "Pre-show workout! #'Truck Yeah'."
--This is pretty cool too: Minnesota's KARE-TV had their "Sunrise" team do some of the tire workout with a trainer. We learned that tractor tires can weigh up to 500 pounds, although there's no way the ones Tim lifts are that bulky.
(--You can check out the video of their workout here. It also includes pics of topless Tim and the tires.)
(--There was a recent survey saying that women should stop wearing a bikini at age 39 . . . but is that a double standard? Shouldn't there also be a cutoff age for dudes going shirtless?)
(--Tim McGraw is 45 years old and is built better than most men half his age, but he is SO in the minority. At what age should men STOP taking their shirts off in public? I say 39 if they're fit . . . 19 if they're normal like you and me.)
(--While we're at it: A word to all you shirtless dudes jogging on the side of the road. Stop. We, and the women driving by, are NOT impressed. Nobody is. I GUARANTEE it. T-shirts are designed to soak up sweat. Let them.)
