New photos released by the Kremlin Sunday show Russian President Vladimir Putin getting in a workout, grilling up his breakfast — consisting of slabs of meat — and washing it down with piping hot tea.

In the photos, Putin is accompanied by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at Putin's summer residence near Sochi.

The pictures are reminiscent of previous photos showing Putin shirtless on a horse, flying a supersonic jet and hunting a tiger. Earlier this month, the Kremlin released photos of the Russian president exploring the Black Sea in a submarine.
