Wladimir Klitschko

Wladimir Klitschko is a Ukrainian boxer who looks like a villain in a 90s Steven Segal action flick.

Alpha male is a popular buzzword these days (I even wrote a book dissecting the topic).

Editor’s Note: On Developed Man, I’ve tried to focus on self-development and avoid the fiery debate across the Manosphere and men’s rights sites that point the finger at “feminism” as being responsible for men’s problems.

I don’t think anybody likes the term “PUA” (pickup artist) anymore because it’s ridiculous.
