Why I love To Provide Resources

Over the years I have shared and promoted many different types of workouts, courses, supplements, books, games & many more different things. This aught to give you an indication of my personality, I don't believe in just one thing, I don't believe in force-fed training systems and I certainly don't believe in creating heat just to help make a living. People have different tastes, have different goals and have different aspirations as to what gives them hope of achieving amazing results so I do my best to bring you the best resources I can find and help you find top notch places.

I can be biased at times when it comes to certain types of fitness but in the long run it is important to give people the opportunity to change their own lives and help them and share with them what can be exciting, unique and jaw-dropping workouts and courses that provide the quality that I have personally researched and either attempted something or I see what certain things have done for people. I want people to feel good about what they find from me, sharing knowledge and helping them find something that suits their interests and not always using personal feelings towards certain things. I don't care about winning any awards, making a billion dollars (although that would add a little touch), if people like my stuff or not (just don't use to your own personal gain and spread stuff I wrote by making it your own) or that my opinions create a whirlwind of someone's existence; all I care about is that people enjoy my style and know that if there was a way to give them the best resources possible to search and learn what they would like to do or are interested in I will find it and if I can't that's ok.

I have no real gimmick or put on a freak show that is spectacular and has videos of heavy entertainment, I'm just me. Just a guy who loves fitness, is human enough to admit that I do have a small issue being on camera and talking to folks, doesn't hide who I'am and that I never BS anyone. I do however tell people at times what I want them to hear because I have hid my true personality on multiple occasions and that around certain people I do put on an act but in the end I'm still here and willing to help the best ways I  can. I don't truly believe in shoving down a product in someone's face acting like its the end all be all. There are certain things people have turned away from when I suggested a product or information about fitness styles and my blunt opinions about them and I'm cool with that. I offer a service to bring you top quality information and products from the biggest names I either know personally, corresponded with, love by reputation and because I do find them incredibly beneficial. I know I do get repetitive on a product or 2 but it isn't to force you to buy them or because someone told me to; its because I personally find it fascinating or have participated in specific forms of training that people can use to their own modifications and share it with the world.

When I show my true colors either on social media or in person; two things will happen, either you'll like me or you won't it's that simple. When I share certain sites, workouts & other courses, its for a purpose. Part of it is to make a living because we all do something to help pay the rent/mortgage but the other 95% is to just help others find cool stuff to give them the chance to find their niche in fitness and provide info that let's them know that they'll either take it with a grain of salt or think its a complete waste of time which does happen from time to time but those moments where you helped someone get fit and bring happiness into their lives through training; its the greatest feeling in the world to me.

Superhero Recovery Workouts

Even the very best superheroes need recovery time. Some heroes have tremendous stamina and the ability to heal fast yet all heroes max out at some point and need to recuperate whether its for 5 minutes or a whole week. Recovery is essential to muscle building and developing incredible stamina and healing muscle fatigue.

My superhero workouts last between 15-25 minutes worth of work but in between sets I do need to let my body "heal" or recover in order to be fluent and strong in the coming sets of Sprints/Burpees and Circuits. Sometimes I do deep breathing, tapping on certain muscles or joints to get some extra jolt, loosen up certain areas to keep from fatiguing and other things but on my of days; its mostly deep breathing, stretching and keeping my joints loose. I might throw in some Playful Movement or Animal Flow to get in some great agility and flexibility.

Doing recovery workouts is being very smart and makes you more intelligent than most people and not that I think people are very dumb but they don't realize how important recovery time is. Many have led to believe that if you train hard all the time your body will adapt and recovery is just a cool down. Believe it or not if you bust out too hard too often and with little recovery, that's where you can end up injuring yourself and risking tearing muscles and joints when it isn't necessary. That's where I feel pity for those poor souls who pop in those infomercial DVD's of workouts based on P90X, Tae Bo, Insanity, Jillian Michaels and many more. They don't teach recovery because that doesn't sell DVD's; hardcore workouts and having you keep going regardless of your form and safety is what sells and it's become a bit of a harsh reality when you can't think for yourself.

I believe in being as efficient as possible while bringing challenges and progression using simple tactics and strategies that give you the most benefit. I'm more self-reliant than anything else because it's more important to be an individual than be with sheep that follow orders. It's extremely easy to follow someone else in the sense where you can just follow along and do nothing but be ordered to do this or that. What I do my best to instill in people especially training my girlfriend is a basic foundation and progression system that does the best possible job for different individuals. I train her on sprints 2-3 days a week giving her an idea of what to shoot for and best to give her suggestions and ideals for being able to recover in the process because her work schedule is not the norm for most people. Everyone cannot work the same exact way because not everyone has the same schedule, body type, the ability to handle exercises the same way and definitely doesn't have the same exact progression speed and tempo. Some people need to recover longer, others may need some extra boosts because the amount of exercise is not enough to hit that threshold. I can take a beating in certain training aspects but like everyone else, do need recovery time that works for my level of fitness.

Train smart and train with the best effective ways because when you're at your best, you can create results within weeks instead of months or years. People think for the most part they're training the best because someone blindly told them it was the best yet after months and even years of kicking your ass to the ground and putting all your effort, nothing to show for it. You can do amazing things when you learn from the right people and learning how to combine things for your style because trying to be someone else or follow blindly someone else's program without thinking for yourself. This sounds like a contradictory to an article I wrote some time ago called Follow Blindly With Pride. What I was doing my best to teach wasn't about just doing whatever a program tells you to do, it was to give you an opportunity to learn but learn for yourself something you've never done before and see where it leads, if t doesn't work stop doing it. Recovery is a serious element to your success and it's worth more than its weight in gold than you've been led on about. Recover with the best intentions and you can't go wrong.

Building A Superhero Physique

I'm not always about the aesthetics on fitness branding but at some point having a body that is considerably healthy and strong is essential. I'm not talking the bodybuilder look or having the physique of a male model but one where it's solid, powerful and you stand out. I like the build between Batman & Spider-Man which is a cross between a solid muscular frame and ectomorph features. If you're going to build a superhero body, the next thing to do is to do Superhero Training.

It's not easy work and it's not going to happen overnight especially when someone is my size at a solid 267 lb. frame at under 6'. That's where I believe having that look is more for fat burning and establishing powerful muscular entities similar to a fullback or a Tight End in Football. My training as of late consists of Sprinting/Burpees, Circuits & Finishers. Three times a week, I lay down a workout that is tough, intense, heart pounding and loading up on insane compound exercises that include Squats, Push-ups, V-Ups, Kicking, Punching & Mountain Climbers. The circuits range from 3-4:30 Total Minutes per round. The Sprints or Burpees last 30-60 sec. and doing 5 rounds of that total. Finishers range from 3-5 minutes at best using 2-9 exercises that are done for time example I did a superset of Sand/Steelbell 360's and V-ups; the objective is to do as many rounds as possible in allotted time doing 10 reps each (each way on the 360's).

  I don't do the same circuit or finisher twice, I change things up to keep it interesting but still as intense as my body can handle. The Sprints/Burpees change time every two weeks and once I hit the 6 week mark, i'll be sticking to 1 minute rounds of Sprints/Burpees and doing 10 reps each exercise doing a circuit of 4 and doing whatever finisher gets into my head. It's extremely advanced version of Sprint Training and it's not for the weak at heart, this will turn little boys away and have hardcore fanatics rush on in unless its too much for them. This is the closest to doing crazy conditioning for sports such as MMA, Football, Track & others without hitting that Pro status. A superhero takes training seriously and thrusts into the very depths of his/her abilities and take on challenges that would make the average person run for the hills and run for their lives. When you challenge yourself in ways that is unique and full of possibilities, you will find training to be something of a wild entity and doing something not many are willing to do.

Take it seriously but also have fun, use your imagination. Sprints can be done in many ways; running hills, on a track, in place or moving really fast in Battling Ropes. I prefer indoor sprinting due to the weather in my area and it works for me. After workouts I take a nice cold shower to help my muscles recover and eat a good portion of food from burning a ton of calories and continue to burn after the session is over. My physique will come in the coming months and during the Spring & Summer I'll be training with my hammers once every 3-4 days to build that powerful muscular frame and build solid tendon and grip strength that is functional and full of fat burning and building an insane metabolism. You can do Superhero workouts using weights but I do feel Bodyweight is better in the sense where all you need is YOU and it can be done anywhere and anytime. The hammers are just an added bonus or alternative in order to get fresh air, vitamin D and train differently with a zest for Norse Mythology.

Cold Showers Building Endurance

For a while now I've been experimenting the method of Cold Water Therapy mainly Cold Showers; yes even in the winter time when it's 20 degrees or lower outside. I've gotten to a point where I can get in and just let the cold water hit me and i'm talking as old as it gets and I mean FUCKING COLD!!! It forces your body to open up on the inside because in order to stay warm, the body burns calories from the trillions of cells rushing through the bloodstream thus when you are literally turning red that's blood rushing throughout your body. Now what does this have to do with endurance?

When you first expose yourself, you breathe hard and fast because your body is in a state of shock and your lungs are needing to produce more oxygen (I'm no scientist, I'm going by how my body feels from starting out till now) but what it really does is that once you become acclimated to the rush of cold water hitting you, you begin to breathe far deeper and thus the greater the deep breathing, the greater your body produces oxygen and burns fat like crazy. When this happens you also produce possibly insanely powerful testosterone and for guys can build up a sperm count by nearly 500%. Who needs steroids when you can produce hormones naturally using techniques like this.

When your body produces insane amounts of oxygen it can lead to greater stamina in your exercise routines or even better in the bedroom with that special someone and believe me, stamina is something you want to have in those reserves. Add in HIIT exercise and holy shit your woman might just be in serious trouble. It takes a powerful level of mental toughness to do Cold Showers and it doesn't get easier but it does get very interesting. If you want more info on Cold Water here's a really fun video by The Art Of Manliness on the benefits of Cold Water Therapy......

The Ultimate Weapon That Will Build Muscle Just By Swinging It

Doing my superhero workouts is becoming a great habit since i'm near my second week into them. They are going to be my Winter training sessions since i'm not the biggest fan to be outside although it is fun from time time time. In the Spring & Summer however, one type of workout that has brought me strength that I never had before or since will be back with a vengeance and doing so twice a week to build steel powered muscle, vibranium corded tendons and obliterate fat like no other is my hammer workouts using two of my most precious and mighty tools of the trade; my Thor Hammer & Epic Sledgehammer made by the modern Blacksmith of the Gods Ryan Pitts.

When you work with sledgehammers, you're getting a feel for that manual labor, back-breaking man's work that will form muscle in ways conventional weights can't and never will. In the past I've called the Thor Workouts Thorsmithing in which means instead of building tools, you're developing a physique being carved out by your own merits and smashing your way to glory. The Epic Sledgehammer workouts are even worse but way more interesting because even though you're smashing a tire to smithereens, you get to be the Mighty John Henry for a period of time. Being able to break through barriers of strength and feeling the surge of the ultimate levels of Testosterone & HGH that steroids cannot ever be measured otherwise. I do take steroids and they're called Hammerbol, its not a pill or a drink or an injection; it is pure hammers that is a tool for very few who are willing to subject themselves to.

Hammers can be fierce, intimidating, full of fear and downright scary as hell. They may look cool and they give off mighty vibes but when you pick them up (if you can) and thrusting it downward onto a tire will bring you power and strength that only the Norse Gods can truly understand. Imagine, hitting a tire 100's or even more than a 1000 times with 30 pound Thor Hammer or a 60 pound Epic Sledge and feel every ounce of your being going into that strike and having the surge of energy that is so strong, average humans run in fear. Only two people have ever joined me in a Hammer workout, one is a beast of a man, the other is a modern day Superwoman less than 5ft tall of pure explosive dynamite. It takes guts to do this kind of training; moving literally a total of 10's of thousands of pounds in a single workout would make most people beg for mercy. I have literally smashed tires with a 60 pound hammer 1000+ times on multiple occasions, that's over 60,000 pounds total in a single workout, that's 30 tons or more being thrown in and I beg for more. It gets you out of breath, it sucks out your soul and your life force is in sheer agony yet it brings out the very best in yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. These are the only true weights I will ever lift, barbells and dumbbells are no longer in my league compared to the hammers. Anybody with a half brain can lift a dumbbell or a barbell but very few can move a hammer with sheer velocity and insane amount of guts just for the opportunity to feel the embodiment of our strength ancestors.

Want to know the closest of feeling like a god of strength and amazing universal muscular empowerment, take on the hammers, I guarantee you it will get you addicted.

Do You Even Superhero Train Bro?

Funny things aside, we all should strive to have that spirited Superhero/Animalistic style training ideal that could take us to the far reaches of our soul and develop our bodies with pure powerful hormones and maximum metabolism strategy. HIIT is nothing new but with a little imagination we can create workouts that bring out the very best in our abilities. Ever wondered what it be like to have the physique of Captain America, Batman, Green Lantern and other heroes? Why do bodybuilding when you can have a body that is far easier to obtain and be able to eat what you?

My ideal physique is a cross between Batman & Spider-Man, a build that is rugged but not bloated or skinny as hell. At 5'10 and 267 lbs. I'm no where near that but with patience, training hard, eating as good as I can while having a cheat day every now and then I believe I can attain it and be able to have that physique at around 230-240. That's the beauty of body-weight exercise, you can turn them into styles of training to help you be big or smaller depending on how you train, eat and program your strategies. For the most part I like being muscular and looking more like an NFL Fullback than a marathon runner that looks like African children should be feeding him something (bad analogy I know).

My style of training these days is utilizing sprints/burpees, circuits and finishers while using compound movements and MMA simulation in a circuit. Its not about training to be a Superhero, anybody can be a hero but being fit to not only look good but be functional and strong, agile enough to help others when needed. Your imagination is the key and applying it to action can have a massive impact on your progress. Already done 4 workouts of Superhero Sprints and seeing some definition and fat melting like Judge Doom at the end of Roger Rabbit sounding like a discount wicked witch of the west. You see, when you go hard for only less than a few days a week, it may not be much but when you think less is more and gaining more than losing it puts you in a different perspective. There are many ways to do HIIT but I find this to be top of the line that anyone can do whether a beginner or an extreme lunatic with a hard-on for crossfit. It's tough and kicking your ass six ways to Sunday but with consistency, you bring in a level of fitness many never achieve.

Making Big Workouts Three Times A Week

Since the Superhero Workouts are my big thing right now it's important to know that I don't do them more than 3 times a week. Many workouts people do believe to be optimal you need to do them 4-6 times a week because its the go hard or go home attitude isn't it? In order to get the best results is to compromise your body to train hard for short periods and relax/recover the rest of the time so your body can repair itself and build the muscle it needs.

Also if you train hard too much with little recovery, you won't just get muscle tears but rupture tendons, ligaments and possible cartilage. When you hit maximum intensity it doesn't need to be more than 3 times a week because mainly when you do short bursts, you're generating greater hormones and your body pumps more oxygen. The Superhero Workouts consisting of sprints, circuits & my personal favorite, a finisher consist of powerful calorie and fat burning effects that even after the workout you're still burning and creating more muscle over fat.

Although it takes time like everything else, HIIT burns fat faster than any other method and the whole workout without the rest periods take no more than 20-25 of hardcore intensity. It is a powerful method that doesn't just build muscle and give you a run for your money, it saves you time and it's quick to do at any point in the day. Using Finishers creates an even greater effect on the fat burning process through its ability to be efficient in sending signals to the body to burn more than you normally would in a regular cardio workout.

You can create your own Superhero Workouts of HIIT using nothing but your own body weight and you can do it with a small amount of space. To find the top courses to get more ideas, head on over to ben-bergman.branded.me and take a look at some of the books that can get you going without ever stepping foot in a gym.

Is It Better To Train Sprints Outdoors Or Indoors?

Sprints as you may well know are the fastest form of training that burns fat, builds muscle and increases metabolism. They don't take very long to do and develop powerful Human Growth Hormone that gives you the ability to stay young, vibrant and have incredible energy. You can do sprints indoors or outdoors but which one is better?

There's pros and cons to both but either way, they're very effective and can give you an incredible physique as you get better at them and do them no more than 3x a week. Outdoor sprints especially hill sprints are the optimal when it comes to burning fat the fastest humanly possible; however, the weather may not always be in your favor and you might need another option for whatever reason and sometimes you just want to be safe but still get an insane workout. Indoors give you the option to train in your home where you run hard in place for 30-60 seconds. You can go hard for a minute but only at that maximum amount of time because you may not be going at higher speeds than if you were to do them outdoors but they do fire up the body really quick.

Because of the weather I'm training my sprints indoors for my Superhero Training doing the Sprints, a Circuit and a finisher. As you saw yesterday if you watched my video, I showed what my workout was that kicked the living crap out of me but loved it with a passion. This workout including the finisher is no more than 20 minutes of work and nearly twice as long just resting. I rest as long as needed to be efficient in a upcoming sprint or circuit and there times where I might change an exercise to where it's not killing me but I can keep going to keep my heart rate up and sticking to it. It's not the easiest workout whatsoever and it shouldn't be but I had the best feeling afterwards especially when I did my meditation listening to Calm Meditative sounds on Pandora, doing deep breathing exercises while doing so then finishing off with a blasting cold shower to balance out my body's heating and cooling systems. For warm ups I would do a dynamic stretching routine of loosening up the joints in the ankles, knees, shoulders, hips, wrists and stretching certain muscles such as the hamstrings, obliques, chest, neck and back.

So which one is better suited? I suggest you figure out what works best for you and if you have decent weather than by all means go for it outside. Imagine the power and surge of vitality when you only train 20 minutes 3x a week and get results faster in mere weeks than you can in 6-8 months. It is a great theme and it can be done on a beginner level as well for those who have never done it before. It is so powerful it causes an afterburn effect meaning within 24-48 hours of that kind of workout you're burning up to 3x or more calories without doing much of anything which in turn can help you lose weight and build up great amount of muscle in a short period of time and recovery becomes your greatest ally. It's helped me sleep way better in the past and believe it or not, I've used this very system to drop 30 points of my blood pressure within 3-4 weeks when normally I couldn't do with other programs that went on for a couple months like the animal exercises. For more info, give me a shout and we can talk on skype or through email and I'll do what I can to give you the best possible ways to do this.

Back On Superhero Training

Its not even Xmas yet and I've already been thinking about my New Year's "Resolution" or should I say Goals because Resolutions just sound like something negative to me and something of a bad cliche. Not going to tell you the full extent of my goals but I'am heading back on the bandwagon of Superhero Sprint Training where you run hard or do Burpees for 30-60 Seconds then rest for a period then do a circuit either Tabata Style or doing repetitions.

I'm always fascinated by the physiques of Superheroes ranging from Batman to Green Lantern to Black Panther and Spiderman because they represent powerful and functional athletic muscle that is backed up with fat burning metabolism and enhanced strength & virility. This type of training I have mentioned in the past but thought I'd give you new readers an idea of what it does; it is by far a top quality intense training system that has you burning fat like there's no tomorrow and it burns insane calories 24-48 hours after the workout so when you do this 2-3 times a week you're developing natural testosterone and HGH that goes through the roof and produces energy that brings in a greater amount of muscle and tosses out fat faster than butter on a hot plate.

I'm doing something different that not only burns even more fat but allows greater natural HGH and that's adding Finishers into the mix. With these little nail-biters that last 3-8 minutes and can be done after a workout or on a day off to aid in the conditioning I will be taking on a challenge many don't tend to accept. It's very tough and it takes training to another realm but with a little imagination and believing in the art of fun and adventure, this will be a phenomenal experience regardless of the outcome. I'm going to just start out with maybe a month testing this out and seeing where it goes. I'm going to be adding my own twist on it doing exercises from various books and doing circuits that really target the fat burning mechanism plus using Finishers from a couple courses and workouts that I can send to you for Free when you order at my Advocare Store. I'm doing a Indoor version of this course since I'm not a fan of cold weather so It'll still be as effective or even more so.

When you go after a goal, make it work for you because if it doesn't than you're not using your full potential and you'll be missing out on the amazing benefits of what can bring you your most amazing transformation. I'm doing this for the purpose of enhancing my conditioning, training hard to burn off fat like crazy and still put on a solid amount of muscle. I'm not too worried about whether I lose weight or not, this type of training in itself can help lose weight but in the end you can still weigh the same but look completely different. Can't wait to share my progress with you guys. This is something I have thought of for a while now and want to do the very best of my abilities and utilize my imagination and thirst for self-discovery. More on this in upcoming articles.

Best Results Come In Small Number Of Exercises

In Bodybuilding the guys would do up to maybe 10-20 exercises per body part to sculpt the body for competition. Granted these guys are competitors and they do other stuff than just training to get as big as possible but also cut fat at the same time. For the average person and those who rely on building functional strength & health you don't need to do that many exercises to get the greatest benefit. In my training alone these days I do at least 20-24 Exercises for the entire body not for each area of the body.

Learning from guys like Brooks Kubik, he teaches that your best bet is to use a minimal amount of exercises for certain muscles however, you don't need to do a ton of different exercises but do very few and hit the muscles hard. When you utilize a few let's say for pressing, a couple solid pulls, 2-3 for the legs, some ab work using no more than 4 exercises and a few for the grip your total is right around 18-20 exercises all together but putting your heart and soul into beating them in submission. In Body-weight Training, you could isolate the muscles but for the most part you don't need to do a ton of different exercises but only a few that really hit the spots you need.

Karl Gotch once said that you don't need to do much for doing a lot; what that means is that you dont need to do everything at once but do enough to where you're making every exercise count. Push-ups, Squats, Core Work and Grip are the foundation and when you add pull-ups to the mix you don't need to go any further unless you have a specific goal in mine. Some people like to do hundreds of reps in the push-ups and squats, do a couple hundred sit-ups and leg lifts and do as much as 100 pull-ups but in reality that's only one way out of many others that can get you top notch results. Sure you can do a few exercises in circuits, you can do them with low rep schemes or go at random and see what you can do. I like to keep my reps to a minimum, I have done over 300 Push-ups & Squats in a single day plenty of times but that to me becomes boring and when it gets boring there's no excitement. That's where my current training comes in with Animals & Bridging.

I have over 30 Animals at my disposal in a workout and on certain days i'll hit all of them, on others only a few but I make the workout short and to the point because no matter what animal comes up, you'll be using your whole body one way or another and you can get exhausted within only a few minutes. The longest workout I ever did with animal movements is no more than 35 minutes and that's at advanced levels. With the bridging, I do a minimum of 4 exercises and do no more than maybe 7. Bridging Exercise when done properly doesn't need more than 15 minutes to really feel it, you'll notice it in less than a few. Last night all I did was the Wall Walking, Chest To Wall, Front Bridge & Back Bridge that's it yet had a major high, got every muscle worked, stretched my spine like crazy and felt very strong at the end.

The big point here is that if you want results in on of the best and highest forms possible, you don't need to do a lot of exercises to get the best benefits. Some things come in small numbers yet can create the biggest impact. Train accordingly and make the best of what you have and you will find that it's not always how long you can go, it's how you made an impact in the time you have.

Be sure to catch up on my site and find courses that suit your needs. These alone can turn you into a machine with little amount of time. There are beginner courses and there are ones that will take you to heights you didn't think were possible and most of the time, doesn't take more than 30 minutes a day to get top notch results. Stop on by @ ben-bergman.branded.me and take up on the best quality books, dvds and travel equipment in the world today.

New Website Has Emerged

The old format from my website @ ben-bergman.branded.me just didn't have very much to offer and there were too many things that didn't have much to do with me and catered to an audience where I felt didn't have the right spunk. So this past weekend I spent many hours coming up with a new and far better format that not only had me using my personal favorite methods of exercise but wanted to generate another audience where there's something for everyone.

My site now is purely Body-Weight Training based with a little section for minimal equipment mostly for traveling. Body-Weight Training is free but there are always a chance that someone may not have the right resources to learn or cant find anything specific. That is why the site has divided sections for specific people that can learn top of the line training from the very best around the world and in the U.S. Some courses are more than a century old, others are more current with up to date routines for the beginner and advanced trainee. If one were to become a trainer, there are a few places they can go to for exams or a workshop they can travel to and get hands on training from mighty trainers.

A women's section is also there for the sole purpose on giving the opposite sex an option that she doesn't need bulky muscles or train the same exact way as a man because let's face it, women have their own levels of strength and want a physique that's more sleek, healthy and filled with muscle that is functional for everyday life. There is a section dedicated to methods such as Hand Balancing & Muscle Control where men and women can learn time tested exercises that were used from the very best more than 100 years ago and have a glare of light shining to this very day. I don't want to reveal all the sections otherwise why go? So I'm sharing with you a piece of the action and you can see for yourself what can work for you. Your body is your own gym, learn how to apply it to styles that have proven to build functional muscle, create high levels of endurance, staggering agility and have you stretched like never before.

A new age is coming and I'm here to help you find the best resources for your fitness needs and share with you quality courses from amazing people and legends you may have never heard of. Come to the site, browse around and bask in the excitement and wonderful ways you can develop the body of your dreams. Whether you're starting out or want to progress higher in your training there will be something there for you.
