I will be your biggest cheerleader. I am one of those people that talks myself through a hard workout. I love helping people mentally get over what they think they cannot do, when in reality they are physically capable.

For quite some time I have given up on the comparison game. Like James Bay says, "You be you, and I'll be me." As far as body parts go I stopped worrying about how I lined up compared to others about the same time I got really into lifting. All ... [ Keep Reading ]
