ATG: Day 2: Competitive Training by Conicer ATG: Day 2: Competitive Training by Conicer
My entry for the Artist Training Ground under the assignment "Draw a pony in training." So here's Applejack and Rainbow Dash doing a sort of a press exercise with weights, making a friendly competition out of it. And Twilight. I think a lifetime of lifting things with only one's magic would inhibit her muscle development, but yeah, look at her go. :)

As far as i can tell earth ponies tend to be physically stronger than unicorns and pegasi due to relying only on their physical prowess as they don't have the luxury of magic or flight for everyday duties.

Unfortunately for Twilight, this incident broke her spine, rib cage, and 2 of her legs. But hey, no blood was shed, so it's all safe for work. ;)

Heh, poor Twi. She should levitate it.

Silly Twilight. That's not how you lift weights.
MasterGraveheart Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
Pretty accurate, actually. I'll always believe Applejack is the strongest (despite how that stupid Iron Pony competition went in the hoof-wrestling contest) and, on the ground, the fastest (ignoring Pinkie's 4th wall breaking habit).

Even if poor Twilight is way exaggerated. Then again, this was meant to be humorous too. ^^;

Hey, Twilight is meaby not athlete from the mane 6 ( bying the magi master and book worm and all ), but she is still very strong and resiliant.

IN episode with Discord she was carrying a giant bulder for rarity in a nice part of episode, for a unicorns, Twilight and Rarity sure are not weak.

Yep! That's a perfectly valid point. As in my reply to KuroiTsubasaTenshi, I'm aware of this, and I was just exaggerating here for comedic effect. Or we can say that Twilight's weights in particular are made of neutron stars or something. Yup. Makes perfect sense. :shifty:
CommanderEX Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012
Sorry, did not noticed that others already post it, anyway the theory about Twilight weights made from neutron seems logical, she is alwais the one to mess with magic and science.

Twilight, I am disappoint. :<

I like how AJ is grinnin' like that, since she knows she's got Dash beat in raw strength and endurance.

lol I love your sense of humor, their facial expressions are hilarious here. I also love how "out of shape" Twilight is portrayed here. :D
karkovice1 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012
Yeah. Look at her go right straight to the ground. LOL.

What a wimp! :P

But Spike usually rides on Twi's back and he's got to be heavier than that dumbbell. Plus she also took Tom on her back for a while with only mild effort. Okay, I'll stop nitpicking now. >.>

Alright, you got me. I'll admit that this piece is not completely and canonically accurate. That line of thought occurred to me after I've finished the picture and by that time... well, I was really hoping that people would overlook that for the sake of the joke. :blush: But it's very perceptive of you and thanks for pointing that out. :)
KuroiTsubasaTenshi Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hehe, don't mind me. It was still funny. Sometimes I just get a little OCD like a certain purple pony. :P
Bronyboy Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2012
Earth Ponies confirmed for strongest.
ZzZzZz777 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2012
that's really awesome! XD
I love twilight having trouble with 45 pounds.
GeneralRex Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2012  Student Digital Artist
This could totally happen, Applejack totally leading the others, Rainbow trying with everything she has not to lose face as best pony, and...

poor Twilight probably read multiple books on this, but this is 1 area where reading doesn't do the subject justice =D

great picture haha
This is so awesome. True to the characters, too.
Scyphi Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'd have about as much success doing this as Twilight does. :P
