Shirtless Saturday: Mikhail Porechenkov

Mikhail Porechenkov - Den D

I have never heard of Russian actor, Mikhail Porechenkov, before, then I saw this trailer for the scene-by-scene remake of Commando, titled Den ‘D.

Check out this side-by-side comparison with the original trailer for Commando.

Yes, the sculpted muscular body caught my eye, but it’s his rugged good looks that made me even more interested.  He completely reminds me of a stacked and built version of Ray Winstone (he would have made a perfect Beowulf).

A body like Arnold, with a Winstone face…

Here’s Mr. Porechenkov in all of his muscular shirtless glory…

Finally, here are more images and screenshots of Mikhail Porechenkov, but this time he did not shave off his fantastic furry chest.  Why must huscular men like Porechenkov shave away those furry gifts from the gods?

Had to censor the female's nipples. But if you MUST see them (and for the love of God, I'm not sure why), go ahead and click on the photo for the NSFW version. ಠ_ಠ

I truly love the following photo set.  Does anyone know where they’re from?  Also, for any Russian-speaking folks out there, may we please have further info on Mr. Mikhail Porechenkov?!  Pretty please?

These were my Google search keywords when I found the above photos.  I always quote my sources; but due to doing way too much work with the translation, I’ll use Google Search as my reference.  🙂

Let’s end with the film’s DVD Making-Of Featurette (I’m guessing it is from the DVD)…

Leonid Zhabotinsky: Classic Russian Super Heavyweight Weightlifter

Russian Weightlifters, Vasily Alexeev and Leonid Zhabotinsky

Vasily Alexeev is quite possibly one of the most famous Olympic Weightlifter of all-time.  He made his mark in 1972 and is now an easily recognized and iconic sports personality.  Researching more about the history of weightlifting, I have pleasantly learned about a handsome bear of a man who also happened to be the previous Olympic Weightlifting gold medalist: another fellow Russian by the name of Leonid Zhabotinsky.

Leonid Zhabotinsky (also endearingly referred to as “Big Zhabo”) possessed that cherubic looks that he seemed more huggable than intimidating.  A true teddy bear, if one was to make an apt analogy.  At 6’5″ and 350 pounds, he was considered a towering, muscular giant in the world of Super Heavyweight Olympic Weightlifting.  And even in his later years, he maintained his youthful appearance.

Thank you to Lift Up and Visualrian for all of the Leonid Zhabotinsky photo archives.

I’m Pretty Sure You Remember Igor Pedan & Vladimir Kalinichenko

Here are Igor Pedan and Vladimir Kalinichenko wearing a bearmythology-approved tight-fitting spandex and shorts, respectively.

And, more importantly, here are our favorite musclebear and musclechub being shirtless again…

Unfortunately, Igor Pedan is a victim of horrible photography as he’s in the middle…

Gotta love that cute bulldog face… *sighs*

Remember Igor Pedan & Vladimir Kalinichenko?

Remember the intensely hot photo of Igor Pedan and Vladimir Kalinichenko?  Ah, yes, looks like we have more photos of these handsome Russian Strongmen…

These three photos of Igor Pedan can be found on Maks D Flickr Page.

The following shirtless photos of Vladimir Kalinichenko (my favorite of the two Russian bears) may not be clear, but, dammit, they’re the only voofy votos of the vabulous shirtless Vladimir Kalinichenko that I could find (try saying that once!).

Alan Karaev: Massive Russian Sumo Wrestler & MMA Fighter

Alan Karaev is not only just an intensely handsome big bear of a man, he is also a Russian Sumo Wrestler as well as an MMA Fighter.  That massive and bulky physique of his is every musclechub’s sweaty dream come true.

The following photos came from a personal Webshots collection of that lucky lady in the photo.

Chubarama had led me to one of these beautiful photographs of European Sumo Wrestlers you see below [Xandri]:


Alan Karaev’s sumo match

Mr. Karaev is just so wide and massive that his opponents can’t resist attacking him on his unmissable soft spot: his chubby gut.
